Indian Grand Prix

The much awaited Indian Grand Prix is here adding to the excitement of Diwali. Ever since I started watching F1, I dreamed of having a Grand Prix in India. In India people don’t have a lot of interest in sports other than Cricket and having a Grand Prix would certainly make sure that F1 will have a better future in India.
Drivers and teams have already arrived in New Delhi and they are ready to set the race track on fire. For all Metallica lovers, Metallica is coming to Gurgaon on 28th October and you can miss the practice session to watch them live.

Although the fate of the drivers has been decided and Germany’s Sebastian Vettel has already won the F1 Championship, fans in India are still happy to see some of their favorite drivers live in action. It is indeed a proud moment for all the F1 fans in India.

Lets now look at what the Indian Grand Prix offers us:


The 17th race of the 2011 season will be held at Buddh International Circuit in Greater Noida, Uttar Pradesh, India. The track is 24 Km from the capital city of New Delhi. The track is one of the fastest track in world and one can drive an F1 car upto 320km/hr at the track.

Indian fans will hope to see some good driving from the local man Narain karthikeyan but looking at the track its almost designed for high speed cars which makes me feel that one of the Red Bull driver will steal the show. Red Bull have been far more quicker than Ferrari’s this season and even McLaren hasn’t found their way out.

There’s some interesting news for cricket lovers too as India’s greatest sporting icon Sachin Tendulkar will wave the chequered flag at the Indian GP. Sachin’s motorsport connection hasn’t been hidden to the nation and the news comes as no surprise.  It seems quite logical to choose him. So, the man who got a Ferrari as a gift from Michael Schumacher will be waving the chequered flag this Sunday. We all hope for an exciting race. Enjoy the speedy weekend.
