“The Indian Grand Prix has quickly developed into an important Formula 1 event — it’s popular and well attended, and the next few years will be critical if the sport is to establish a foothold in such a vast territory.
It’s been pleasing to see the enthusiasm that Indian fans have for our sport — and our love for their country is equally reciprocated and I would love to see the race grow in significance over the coming years,” said Whitmarsh in a team preview ahead of the third Indian Grand Prix here this weekend.
The race is off the calendar in 2014 owing to ‘logistical’ reasons and doubts loom over its return in 2015. Nevertheless, teams have praised the event promoted by Jayeep Group.
