Finally it has happened and I'm sure a certtain Mr. Mallya has something to do with it. They havent mentioned the venue yet though. If there is an Indian GP from 2009, I know where a once a year trip will be that year onwards

Heh-heh, well said Dippy! In my case (and I'm being REALLY OPTIMISTIC here ), it would just be a 25-30 km drive to the track!!!

On a more serious note, Bernie is only one cog in the wheel, its the Govt that has to make the effort & be positive enough for this thing to finally see the light of day!

Wow thats an achievement! I wonder where this track will be? Considering that we take 3 years to build a flyover I wonder how much time constructing a track will take!

Yup, thats what I meant in my reply to Dippy's post, Delhi
Formula 1 : News Ecclestone - F1-Live.com - I think Rediff were being a little extra-cautious & didn't mention the Delhi bit!

Where does Suresh Kalmadi come into the picture though? I thought he's president of the Olympic committee, what does that have to do with Formula One?
