Originally designed by renowned German race track architect Hermann Tilke, the Buddh International Circuit has been tweaked by the organizers after it was tested on simulators by several of the sport’s teams.
It’s hoped the modifications will boost the circuit’s overtaking opportunities, allowing for more exciting races.
The Red Bull Racing team was fortunate enough to be the first F1 team to tackle the circuit, with test drivers taking out the running show car for a little fun and to get a feel for it.
The Buddh International Circuit stretches some 3.192 miles, with drivers on Sunday scheduled to make 60 laps, and it features a total of 16 turns, three high-speed straights, and elevations changing by up to 45 feet.
Enough time wasting; see what Red Bull Racing’s Mark Webber has to say in the video below, which also includes a virtual lap of the circuit.
