Indian Grand Prix
How to get there
There are direct flights from UK to Delhi, which is also a hub for internal Indian flights and railways should you want to visit other parts of India whilst on your travels.
Where to stay
Dehli has a wide range of hotels, including local and internationally recognised names. Transport is easy and cheap, whether by Metro, taxi or tuk-tuk, but if you want to enjoy the best of the city then it's worth staying there rather than at the airport.
What else to do
Dehli has lots of attractions, including the old fort, India Gate and the Lutyens designed area of New Dehli. Take in the the contrasts between the bustling, crowded streets of Old Dehli, the structured arrangements of bars and restaurants in New Dehli and the wide open spaces in the parliament area. If you are planning a holiday, then consider the heritage train to Shimla in the Himalayan foothills or a drive to Agra for the Taj Mahal and Red Fort.
Transport to the circuit
The Buddh International Circuit is an hours drive out of town, so given the cheap price of hiring a car then that's the easiest way. The bigger hotels will be able to organise this for you. Get the driver to drop you near the gate, get his mobile number and call him when you're ready to be picked up from the same place. Most drivers speak a little English, but don't rely on being able to communicate anything complicated.
The first corner is a reliable location, but also consider the end of the back straight which is a good overtaking spot. The downside is that you are a long way from any other facilities.
Merchandising is limited and only available behind the main pit grandstand. Food and drink is adequate, although fairly limited in choice and you have to buy tokens first from adjacent stalls.
