  1. Nice pictures.

    1. I didn’t think the sun would’ve been so low at the time of the sessions.

  2. Empty grand stands… The cancellation of the Metallica concert (which was part of the F1rocks event) might have been a factor for the reduced crowd.

    hope it improves for tomorrow.

    1. Apparently there was an issue with the barricades around the stage. It’s sad, but true.

      Anyway, they’ll be playing Delhi in a couple of days.

      1. @MVEilenstein Well, I guess nothing else matters really…

        1. Thanks for getting that.

          BTW, I meant Bangalore, not Delhi. They’re playing the Bangalore Palace Ground tomorrow.

  3. Again, I see lots of smog, and lots of dust. Reminds me of Interlagos.

  4. The middle Lewis Hamilton one is my favourite today :)

  5. How young does di Resta look there?!

    1. At a guess, I’d say he’s about 25.

  6. Is it just me, or does the pit lane look weird? It’s not straight, and there’s a big open space halfway down. I wonder how the teams feel about that, since pit allocations are based on WCC standings, so being at a certain end of the grid offers an advantage – but because of the kink in pit lane, a mid-tier team is going to get that same advantage themselves.

  7. It seems, it will be a another victory for Sebastian Vettel, Red Bull Leads in Indian Grand Prix.
