F1 India  1With things heating up for the much awaited Japanese Grand Prix, scheduled for October 7, and confusion surrounding 27 year old Lewis Hamilton leaving the Mclaren Mercedes and Sebastian Vettel’s second win at the Singapore Grand Prix after Bahrain –where a lot of his fans are awaiting for a hat trick of sorts. The Singapore Champion is now 29 points closer to Alonso’s 194 total. In fact, Ferrari’s Alonso philosophically quoted that his Ferrari was not competitive enough, the way it was at Monza, and points counted more than the winning as it was the driver stayed out of trouble and handled the tyres the best and the team minimizes the interruption by the car-safety intervention. Ferrari also found that it could not match the pace of the leading cars around the Marina Bay track. Alonso and Massa were struggling for grip in their F2012s, especially second and third sectors.

Sahara Force India is slowly climbing up the ladder winning 4th place as Paul Di Resta recorded his career best result with 12 points, even though his team mate Nico Hulkenberg returned empty handed. Hulkenberg finished 14th after starting from 12th but set the fastest lap of the race with 1min 51.033 secs. Paul Di Resta also reached 6th place; partially helped by Lewis Hamilton’s McLaren which had mechanical failure in Lap 23.  Hamilton was leading the race from the pole position before his gearbox stopped responding, and ending his championship chances, pushing him to 4th place with 142 points Hamilton’s crashing out handed the race lead to Sebastian Vettel, who kept it till the end won the only night Formula One race, which was completed under two-hour time restriction.F1 India 2

With Jenson Button coming second in the second McLaren, closely followed by championship leader Fernando Alonso, making him lead Vettel by 24 points, which in turn has made Force India consolidate its place seventh position, extending their lead over Williams by 21 points.

After the Japan Grand Prix, the spotlight will be on F1 Indian Grand Prix to be held on Buddh International Circuit (BIC) in Noida from October 26 to October 28, 2012. The Buddh International Circuit is 5.125 km long and race involves 60 laps of this circuit. Sebastian Vettel was the race winner in 2011. The UP Government is already started sprucing up the circuit and the newly opened Taj Expressway is expected lessen the huge traffic jams that happened last year, and has expanded the parking space. However for peace of mind before the adrenalin pumping race begins, it is always better to hire a cab with driver and security verified services, which can drive you back while you reminisce over the spectacular action of the high speed race, where the winner takes it all.
