Preview – Indian Grand Prix

17th of 19 Rounds of the FIA Formula One World Championship, 28-30 October 2011



The Buddh International Circuit in Greater Noida is located about 50 kilometres south east of New Delhi in the northern state of Uttar Pradesh

Buddh International Circuit / 5.125 km
Race distance
60 laps / 307.249 km
Qualifying 14:00 hrs, Race 15:00 hrs local time (08:30/09:30 hrs GMT)

Track length : 5,137 km

Corners : 16

downforce level : fairly high

Pirelli tyres :  Hard/soft

Estimated average speed :  235 km/h

Estimated top spedd : 320 km/h

Expected lap time :  1 min , 27 sec

Seating capacity : around 150.000




The track is a combination of slow corners and high-speed straights which flow into each other. The altitude difference is extreme, rather like in Spa or Turkey, which will give the driving an additional element. Incidentally, teams are  expecting the track to have the second highest average speed of the season after Monza.
