Agreed! Rumors are that Neel Jani (Red Bull test driver) will do a few flying laps of the circuit in the next few days. I will keep an eye out for that.

Flying out tomorrow, first to Bombay and then to Delhi for the race! Feels crazy that it is actually happening. Will try to post impressions/pics from each day at the track, if time is available

From what I can tell, all that remains is installation of the final kerbing, as well as cleaning all the dust off the track, and a bit of landscaping work.

Looking forward to the Australian V8 Supercars race to tide me over .

Looks like a great track! Kinda reminds me of the Korean track, however, since it has several long straights and pretty much just one twisty section.

Track layout looks interesting. A little similar to Korea where you have 2 long straights separated by a short double turn and then a windy mid-section. Looks fun to drive though.

I've driven it on F1 2011, it feels like a mix of Korea and the old Magny-cours circuit. Most notably, it feels quick, without many slow corners, and the overall lap is rather short.

Was about to say, seems a short lap...which could also make it nicer to watch on-screen.

LOL! Well, you can imagine how dirty that track must be. Delhi is INCREDIBLY dusty.

Hard to make predictions, although I expect tyre degradation to be very high. Temps are current around 30-35 c here (90-95 F) during the day, but gets down into the 60s at night.
