Indian Grand Prix
Greater Noida, 28-30 October. 2011.

How the track looked back in 2010. K Chandhok did say that he hoped to be racing this new track in his home country. (The track is even built on the site of Chandhoks grandmother's village).  














Trivia - Its Bernie Ecclestone's birthday, aged 81 today 2011 Oct 28th!

Below:- Is this how we might see the new Indian track? Wonder what the lap times will be?

(I was here from 5am and watched the P1 session both following on BBC Red Button and online stats from EnterF1, but then a dropped internet connection meant I could not get the practice session one lap times)!

All thedrivers are basically praising this new track. It certainly has been designed well, from a layout perspective, offering plenty of challenges to the drivers. I suspect that some of the kerbs could do with a little tweaking to reduce their height or smooth them over.

Ferrari's Felipe Massa, wrecked his right front steering and suspension by simply going over a kerb. The kerb was described as 'a full loaf of bread' by BBC Sport commentator and ex F1 driver Martin Brundle. I totally agree, some of the kerbs beggar belief, considering that you could launch and flip a car by the looks of some of them.

Apart from the kerbs, this track has a unique dust-element to it. The dry and dusty conditions promote soil-dust to be blown all over the track. This also creates an air quality issue, not necessarily just for the spectators, drivers and their teams, but also for the engines. It might be that air filters clog more rapidly and reduce engine performance or overheating.
