with the width of track, it looks fine, seeing the layout the exit is designed way better than Korea for sure and doubt if it will be a problem, if there is, I will have a chance to see it live

No, fogy season starts at second half of November. For last few days Delhi and surroundings are witnessing haze due to less wind (pollution, dust) and change in temperature (Day is too hot and Night cold).

Anyway October 30th will be a cracker. Decent (cool and less humid) atmosphere and a superb world class plus track.

Cheers!

Now BMS is offering a car park with one ticket also. Talk about adopting desperate measures. LOL

Smile Sachin Tendulkar excited about Indian Grand Prix!

Mumbai: Invited for the Indian GP by formula one boss Bernie Ecclestone, Sachin Tendulkar is mighty thrilled to witness yet another race day.

When Sachin Tendulkar was asked in 2004 about the possibility of India hosting a Formula One race in a few years' time, he said, "I hope that it happens because there are plenty of Formula One fans in India. It's a new sport that is picking up very quickly and the new generation is hooked".

The time has come and on October 30, world cricket's biggest draw will witness a historic event in the history of Indian sports as the nation hosts its first Formula One Grand Prix at the Buddh International Circuit in Greater Noida.

"I'm really excited about this event. I was invited by Bernie Ecclestone (Formula One boss) on the last tour of England," Tendulkar told MiD DAY at the Mumbai Cricket Association's Bandra Kurla Complex ground. The batting maestro is recovering from a toe injury that has kept him out of the ongoing India vs England one-day series.

Formula One has been one of Tendulkar's best-loved sports for a while, watching it since 2000. He is delighted for his country's sports-loving public that they now have an opportunity to witness the exhilaration which Formula One lends itself to. "What you see on television is far different from what one sees at the venue," said Tendulkar, who has been to quite a few races. "The noise and speed levels are 15 to 20 per cent greater that what one can imagine... it's great," he said.

He witnessed his first Grand Prix at Silverstone while he was on the 2002 tour to England and met German legend Michael Schumacher the evening before Race Day. In fact, it was Schumacher, who presented him with the keys of the Ferrari car, which is now owned by a businessman from Surat.

"It's a great feeling to be at a race, watch the speeding cars and the turns that the drivers take. Year before last, I had the pleasure of witnessing the British Grand Prix with (Formula One legends) Sir Jackie Stewart and Sir Frank Williams. Just the three of us watched that race together," said Tendulkar.

Some of F1 buff Sachin's visits to the paddock...
* 2008 French GP at the Circuit de Nevers Magny-Cours on June 22, 2008 in Nevers, France.
* 2005 Spanish GP at the Circuit de Catalunya on May 8, 2005 in Barcelona, Spain
* 2004 European GP at the Nurburgring on May 30, 2004 in Nurburg, Germany
* 2002 British GP at the Silverstone Circuit on July 7, 2002 in London, England

Premium stand north was still under construction when I last saw it a less than a week ago. I am not sure if that would be open for bookings this time around.

Wrong strategy by the organisers. Next year, people wait for the last hour discount before buying the tickets.

Slightly OT, but who is going to be giving up the trophies after the race? It would probably be the easiest to get Sachin Tendulkar give one away considering he will be there. Or then maybe it will just be the politicians?

Would be interesting if it is Sachin though, he will probably get a louder cheer than the winner.

It could be Sanjay Gupta (President of Airtel) - not sure if Sunil Mittal might be interested. I remember Monza 06 - Vodafone was the title sponsor of Monza GP and Arun Sarin was on the diaz to present the winner's trophy. MS was the winner.

I don't understand one thing. Some stands don't have seats. What does it mean? We are supposed to stand all the time? And, more importantly, are those stands elevated? I was unable to catch action during Red Bull F1 event at India gate through my eyes and had to catch it through my phone raised in air, even though there were only two row people in front of me.
