The FIA, Formula One racing’s governing body,has released the calendar for the 2011 F1 World Championship and the all-important date is 30th October 2011. Well, the three days of 28th, 29th and 30th October are all important, as the F1 spectacle (circus is such a crude word, no?) comes to the Indian shores.
The Jaypee Group Circuit will host the inaugural Indian Grand Prix and is set to the 18th race in a 20-race calendar. Remember what happened in the last-but-second race of this year at Korea? The championship standings were shaken up with the Red Bulls losing out and the Scarlet Ferrari of Fernando Alonso emerging victorious. Imagine something similar happening next year…and will be all the more exhilarating if I was there!
Now, which of my friends stays in/near Noida?
