Drivers give thumbs up to greener Buddh circuit
Dust has become a thing of the past at the Buddh International Circuit (BIC), say the Formula One drivers here for the second Indian Grand Prix. Drivers had complained of dust and dirt at BIC during the inaugural edition last year.
“The track looks a lot more prepared this year and a lot of development work seems to have taken place. We have again received a warm welcome from the Indian people,” seven-time World Champion Michael Schumacher said at the Mercedes GP hospitality here yesterday.
Williams driver Bruno Senna too was happy with the improvements made to the track. “This is one of my favourite tracks. Experience off the track is a big change and a lot of work seems to have gone into it.”
