Sometimes its easier to watch it on the net / TV than going all the way and end up seeing few shadows moving

Just saw the unveiling and for all those who are too lazy to watch through all 25 minutes heres a brief summary.

Rakshanda Khan MCed the event. VJM spoke about how big a deal it is to have an Indian F1 team and how it would be considered impossible a few years ago. He acknoledged that Spyker wasnt that great a team but said that the team was doing all it could to improve its position and promised that in 2010 when India hosts its F1 team, Force India will be on the podium.

Overall a pretty inspiring event. Cheers to VJM for making this happencheers:
