In preparation for tomorrow’s first-ever Indian Grand Prix, here’s a video showing you the new track. Red Bull Renault junior driver Neel Jani got the honor of being the very first driver to pilot an F1 car around the new track, which explains why his speeds were modest. The very first rule of racing is “don’t stack the race car,” but that’s superseded by “don’t be the first guy to stack a race car on a brand new track that hasn’t been raced on yet.”
The good thing about racing on a new track is that every driver has the same amount of experience on it. As Jani explains in the video, the track is wide and had some long straights, so passing will be encouraged. That should make for an exciting race, even if the driver and constructor championships have already been decided.
