Indian Grand Prix Circuit Plagued By Teething Problems
The Buddh International Circuit that will see the first ever Indian Grand Prix race on it this weekend has been plagued by a number of teething troubles, most of which have come in power cuts that seem to have disrupted all events that have taken place today.
A short while ago there was a power cut right in middle of the FIA Thursday Press Conference that caused a slight delay. To add to the stack of teething troubles of intermittent power-cuts, a lack of signs outside the circuit culminated in more confusion as the press and team personnel battled their way to the track.
Another poor aspect of the track is the commentary booth in which BBC’s Martin Brundle and David Coulthard are expected to commentate from for this weekends Indian Grand Prix. But as the picture shows, the commentary box has no windows, and seems to be no-where near the track judging by the disconsolate tweet by Martin Brundle which accompanied the picture. It is hard to imagine Murray Walker and James Hunt excepting such poor qualities compared to other tracks where the commentary box generally looks out onto some part of the track in question.
Still, let the incomplete buildings, poorly designed commentary box and intermittent power-cuts not deter from what will hopefully be a highly successful, and exciting inaugural Indian Grand Prix.
