F1 Grand Prix: India's date with Hotwheels
It's huge. We have done a good job building the infrastructure , the track looks fabulous. Fans are going get to feel the noise and smell the rubber and that means a lot. We have done it in two years and that's big. I do hope this becomes a hook for more support for drivers like me. With the exposure F1 will generate in India, we hope companies will also take to the sport. Cricket, for example , is a crowded place so if one wants excitement and exclusivity, F1 is ideal.
