Karthikeyan prepares for his home grand prix - credit: sutton-images.com

 

This is history in the making folks – the first ever Indian Grand Prix.  It’s a stunning achievement in itself that the track is here, ready and in action for Formula 1 and there’s only been good things said about the place so far with seemingly every driver loving the layout, the speed and undulations of the circuit.  Sure, it’s dusty and lacking in grip, but that should only add to the appeal for the fans and increase the challenge.

Thanks to Sutton Images, we’re able to bring you this fine collection of photos from Saturday showing you just what a great job the organisers have done, and what a terrific track this is.  Sunday should by all account deliver a thrilling grand prix.
