The Formula One World Championship ventures into new territory this week with inaugural Indian Grand Prix, which takes place on October 30 at the Buddh International Circuit. The 5.137 km track is located some 40 km from the Indian capital, New Delhi, and has been built as part of a massive redevelopment of the Greater Noida area, which will eventually include residential and professional buildings.

The circuit layout has been designed by Hermann Tilke with extensive input from the Formula One teams and features several interesting features, including a 1.1 km straight that goes steeply downhill before rising uphill and a double apex cambered radial turn named the Parabolica. The wide track - at many points over 21m in width - also features marked changes of gradient over the course of a lap, so there is likely to be several overtaking opportunities.

Meanwhile, French Carmaker RENAULT told the GlobalGiants.Com Publisher that since the Buddh International Circuit is a new addition to the calendar, a great deal of work must be completed at the factory before a car has even turned a wheel on the tarmac. This enables a good base power-train set-up to be determined and available track time to be maximised. So, Renault Sport F1 will use all the tools at its disposal, such as computer simulation and engine dyno running, to meet this objective.
