Next week will see Formula One's second visit to India following the inaugural Grand Prix at the Buddh International
Circuit in October 2011. This year, our team is very pleased to be partnering with Airtel, title sponsors of the race, and
we look forward to sharing our Indian Grand Prix experience with them. It's always a pleasure to welcome new fans to
our sport, and Formula One certainly seemed to capture the imagination of those who came to the circuit last year. The
facilities are very impressive, and the track proved a good challenge for the drivers.
After a successful inaugural race last year, we are all excited to return to the Buddh International Circuit for the second
edition of the Indian Grand Prix. We received a warm welcome from a very enthusiastic public last year and it was
impressive to see the prestige Formula One enjoyed with the people on its first visit to India. Following two long
straights, and one shorter one, the circuit offers a challenging flow of corners from turns 5 to 15, especially the long
right-hander at turns 10 and 11. This puts high loads through the front-left tyre, while the expected temperatures in
excess of 30°C will also make for additional challenges.
