VALENCIA, Spain (AP)
Force India boss Vijay Mallya plans to launch a campaign in India to find the country's ``next Lewis Hamilton.''
Mallya said Friday after practice sessions for the European Grand Prix that Force India will set up an academy to nurture talented young drivers until they are ready to compete in Formula One.
He plans to set up karting tracks across India to encourage young drivers to compete. Mallya said Force India ``will probably take those with exceptional talent, bring them to either England or Europe, pay for them, pay for their education'' and turn them into top drivers.
Mallya also said that he expects a grand prix to be held in India in 2011.
