Who's the clown sitting next to the car, in the driver's position?!

Can't make out for sure, but looks like the steering wheel is the real deal. Must say that's quite a thing, because last time when HSBC brought the Jag down, it had some horrid replacement.

They were holding some contests and winners were given free JW sun shade cap(That 10rs thing people wear at cricket matches to avoid the sun.
The steering wheel looked real. I could get pics from top only as at the same level the crowd was too much to get any decent shots.

Hmmm - that makes sense. But why do I see Lambo's and Ferrari's and 911 turbos coming with huge rims and much lower profile tyres, if they also claim to match almost similar speeds

Well because the Ferrari's & Lambo's run at 200mph or above for a few seconds at a time (even on autobahn's you find such stretches for a very short period of time) where as the F1 cars have to pound the track at these speeds lap after lap, hence the increased stress.
