New Delhi: Bernie Ecclestone's 'hinting' that Indian Grand Prix may not be held next year is not the end of the road for the sport's marquee event in the country, says F1 driver Karun Chandhok.

One of the two Indian drivers ever to race in F1, Chandhok was bombarded with phone calls on Monday, after news reports saying - the 2014 Indian Grand Prix may not take place - emerged. Speaking exclusively to NDTV, Chandhok said that the sport in general has nothing against an Indian Grand Prix.

"We are trying to work out a way for the Indian GP to co-exist in a now packed calendar, for both sides - Jaypee Group (owners of Indian GP's venue Buddh International Circuit) and the Formula One Group. I was on call with Bernie earlier today and what we've come to know that everyone must understand that both sides want an Indian Grand Prix. It's just the finding of the right solution for everybody," Chandhok told NDTV.
