Opinion: Indian Grand Prix like no other
Red Bull driver Sebastian Vettel of Germany leads the field after the start during the Indian Formula One Grand Prix at the Buddh International Circuit in Noida, 38 kilometers (24 miles) from New Delhi, India, Sunday, Oct. 30, 2011.
The toil and hard work of an army of people right from the labourers to the promoters and the support staff bore fruit as India hosted its first ever Formula One Grand Prix, successfully.
The stray dog and dirt during the first free practice and the power outage before it, gave way to a race that challenged the driving skills of every driver at the international arena and boy, were they bowled over by the track. Three turns, long straights and elevation that would test the best, the Indian GP had it all.
