Indian Grand Prix
Greater Noida, 28-30 October. 2011.

How the track looked back in 2010. K Chandhok did say that he hoped to be racing this new track in his home country. (The track is even built on the site of Chandhoks grandmother's village).  














Trivia - Its Bernie Ecclestone's birthday, aged 81 today 2011 Oct 28th!

Below:- Is this how we might see the new Indian track? Wonder what the lap times will be?

(I was here from 5am and watched the P1 session both following on BBC Red Button and online stats from EnterF1, but then a dropped internet connection meant I could not get the practice session one lap times)!

All thedrivers are basically praising this new track. It certainly has been designed well, from a layout perspective, offering plenty of challenges to the drivers. I suspect that some of the kerbs could do with a little tweaking to reduce their height or smooth them over.

Ferrari's Felipe Massa, wrecked his right front steering and suspension by simply going over a kerb. The kerb was described as 'a full loaf of bread' by BBC Sport commentator and ex F1 driver Martin Brundle. I totally agree, some of the kerbs beggar belief, considering that you could launch and flip a car by the looks of some of them.

Apart from the kerbs, this track has a unique dust-element to it. The dry and dusty conditions promote soil-dust to be blown all over the track. This also creates an air quality issue, not necessarily just for the spectators, drivers and their teams, but also for the engines. It might be that air filters clog more rapidly and reduce engine performance or overheating.

Sad news today:

Dan Wheldon dies in IndyCar race in Las Vegas.

I won't go into the details, but just point you toward a few very detailed news articles I found and tweeted.

Korean Grand Prix.
Korea International Circuit, Yeongam, 14-16 October. 2011.

Typically, its raining as we go into practice session one. I have been twittering about the rain, mainly because I am glad to be watching from the comfort of my arm-chair. I noticed that most of the spectators in the seated areas are actually having to stand because of the rain!

So, imagine the reality of having to pay for a seat, only to find; it is out in the rain and has no drain-holes to let out the puddle of rain-water that has collected! Then, you find you cannot actually see any of the cars going by at high speed, due to the ploom of rain water spray kicked up from the tires.

Yes, I am glad to be watching from home! Initially, the feed to the BBC website was faulty, but we could still watch on the BBC Red Button service, (Channel 301 Freeview). We have the picture back online now. (Time now 3.15am).

The BBC commentary team seem to be on-the-ball with lots of great news and info about what is happening on the track and in the wings behind the scenes! (Like Schuey is officially the oldest F1 driver to drive in an F1GP! - I did not quite hear or understand the whole story, I had two commentaries running and was chatting on Skype. I will look out for that story again later).

Incidentally, if you haven't already bought F1 2010, you might want to to get F1 2011 instead, or, if you are a tight-wallet, (like me), buy a second-hand copy of F1 2010 as the second-hand price should have plummeted after the release date of F1 2011.

Going back to the great BBC commentary today, you know you have good commentators when they do things like hold on a few seconds after a report from the pits, so that we can see or hear the sound of a car pulling away. Great petrol-head stuff!

Petrov took out Schuey on lap 19 / 20, until then Schuey was climbing up the positions reaching 9th from starting 12th on the grid.

There was a great battle for second between Hamilton and Webber, great racing!
