Culture shock

Motor Racing - Formula One World Championship - Indian Grand Prix - Practice Day - New Delhi, India

The first Indian Grand Prix in 2011 was a race against time for the organisers to prepare the circuit and infrastructure, and a culture shock for F1. Difficulties getting freight in and out, unfinished facilities and the sheer madness of the Indian experience made it a memorable first event, but some of the issues proved insurmountable as the race dropped off the calendar after the 2013 season.
