    "That Formula 1 won’t be coming to India next year has been confirmed. Bernie Ecclestone, the President of Formula One Management (FOM), first drew the world’s attention to the possibility that the Indian GP would be cancelled at last weekend’s Hungarian GP. Ecclestone declared that the situation in India was too ‘political’ referring to the taxation issues and red tape that plagued the country. And while speculation was allowed to go on unchecked for a while, confirmation has finally come through that the 2014 edition of the Indian Grand Prix is definitely off.

    OVERDRIVE learned yesterday, while speaking to the President of the Federation of Motor Sport Clubs of India (FMSCI) that the FOM was looking at cancelling the 2014 edition of the Indian GP purely because they wanted the race to run early on in the year in 2015. If this were the case, the time period between the 2014 and 2015 races would be very short, and preparation for the event wouldn’t be easy.

    Today, Bernie Ecclestone confirmed the same, declaring that he’d always wanted to host the Indian Grand Prix in the first part of the year, along with the other Asian races like Malaysia, Bahrain and China. And in order for a successful running of the 2015 edition of the race, the 2014 race would be cancelled. Since the Buddh International Circuit is contracted to host five editions of the Indian Grand Prix, the fourth and fifth rounds will happen early on in 2015 and 2016."

    Another Indian success in the World arena, after the explosion of the Russian made submarine without Pakistan firing a single bullet, the gang rape of another woman in Mumbai, the weakening of the Indian rupee etc.

    F1 management chief just confirmed that 2015 Grand Prix will be held in India.

    Also it's good that there will be no Grand Prix in 2014 as it will increase pressure on police who will have to take care of election security.

    This is really sad. We have one of the best tracks in the world and missing out such an event is more than unfortunate.

    Buddh International Circuit set for Indian Grand Prix

    LUCKNOW: The Formula One Indian Grand Prix would be held at the Buddh International Circuit in Greater Noida between October 25-27, officials said on Wednesday.

    The state government cleared the proposal of the JP Sports International Limited late Tuesday.

    The state industrial development department held a meeting to decided and discuss the preparations of the world class sports event and after scrutiny gave a green signal for the sports event, Alok Ranjan, industrial and infrastructural development commissioner (IIDC), said.

    He added that instructions had been passed on to the district administration in Noida, the home department, the Noida, Greater Noida and Yamuna Expressway authorities to ensure that the event is a grand success.

    Keeping in mind, the presence of international and film celebrities for the event, the home department has divided the Formula One racing event into four 'security zones' - track area, spectator area, paddock and the outer peripheral rings, an official said.

    The organisers expect more than 65,000 people to enjoy the racing event and have made arrangements for the sale of 65,514 seats. The state government has asked the authorities concerned to arrange for a vehicle parking space for 25,000 cars and has asked for making of a 15-km long 'entry ramp' on the Yamuna Expressway by October 15.

    To ensure smooth transport for the spectators from the parking area to the circuit, 19,439 cars and 2,000 two-wheelers will be stationed at the parking lot, an official said.

    Also 100 buses would be available at the Noida City Centre metro railway station.

    An official said that they are separately arranging for radio cabs, pick-up and drop buses at major city malls and shuttle buses on the outer circuit as well.

    Formula One Grand Prix was first held in India at the Buddh International circuit in Greater Noida on October 30, 2011.

    The 5.14 km long circuit has been designed by world-renowned German architect and racetrack designer, Hermann Tilke, who has also designed other race circuits in Malaysia, Bahrain, China, Turkey, the UAE, South Korea and the US and was seen as a big achievement of then UP chief minister Mayawati.
