It's Indian GP time!!

Just one week to go until the start of the inaugural Indian GP weekend - we're all very excited!!

Predictably all the spotlight and all the news has been concerning the upcoming historic race.

Firstly, it's confirmed, the track is ready! The developers are still doing little bits of work on the run up to the race, but it is ready to host the event ... infact some additional work will probably be carried out after the GP based on feedback (needs to be done to maintain the circuit as a World class international sporting venue). Nevertheless the circuit could host the race tomorrow if need be. Here are the latest track pictures.

Believe it or not an F1 car has already driven the circuit! Which car? Red Bull ... which driver? Neel Jani! Neel, who now mainly competes in endurance racing, races under the Swiss nationality however he is infact half Indian! Read the story of his test here.

Elsewhere various media sources have been ecstatic about the upcoming Indian race ... there is a great article online here about "India's road to F1 status" whereas there is another good read here called "India & Formula 1 (a dream come true)" - we recommend both reads!

In other news Narain Karthikeyan said his aim for the GP is to finish the race (preferably ahead of the Virgin cars) whereas news is awaited on Karun Chandhok's chances of a drive with Team Lotus. Karun has conducted a feature with TV show Overdrive Grand Prix about his personal/home life - that can be watched right here.

Force India will be in action as normal at the Indian GP and in an effort to try and get more people enthusiastic about their home race their media team have created a great website! You can view it here.

We have a very special article coming midweek as part of our build up to the Indian GP so keep an eye out for that - that's all from us for now!

Thanks for reading =)
