Changes to Indian GP circuit to help Organizers for this October’s Indian Grand Prix have explained that small circuit tweaks continue to be made in order to create as many overtaking possibilities as possible ahead of the inaugural race at the Greater Noida-based track.
India’s first taste of Formula 1 will arrive on the weekend of 28-29-30 October, with the project being headed by Vicky Chandhok – father of former Hispania racer Karun and President of the Federation of Motor Sports Club of India (FMSCI).
“Bernie (Ecclestone, F1 commercial rights holder) was very happy with his visit, extremely happy,” Chandhok Sr. explained to India’s F1Pulse.
He went on to describe the comments of FIA Race Director Charlie Whiting, who recently inspected the venue. “Charlie pointed out that (F1 governing body) the FIA has recommended a few areas to encourage overtaking,” Chandhok continued.
“We will be the first circuit in the world to have a faster corner into a shorter apex, which means we are widening three corners to create a shorter apex at Turns 3, 6, and 11 - this was put forth by the FIA through Charlie Whiting.
