A Delhi first as Ricciardo and Red Bull race the Rajpath 03 Oct 2011
With less than a month to go before Indias inaugural Grand Prix, a crowd of 60,000 thrilled to the sights and sounds of Formula One on Saturday as Red Bull brought their showcar to the countrys capital city of New Delhi.
Red Bull Junior driver and current HRT racer Daniel Ricciardo had the privilege of powering down the iconic Rajpath, the ceremonial boulevard for the Republic of India, at speeds of over 300 km/h, with the Rashtrapati Bhavan and India Gate serving as backdrops on either side.
'It was a proud moment for me to be the first F1 driver to race down the Rajpath, the Australian told Red Bull afterwards. Todays drive was truly exhilarating, especially with legions of cheering fans lining the road.
"Ive never seen anything like this before but Im sure that Red Bull has set millions of pulses racing as India waits for the lights to turn green at the Grand Prix later this month."
The 2011 Formula 1 Airtel Grand Prix of India takes place at the all-new Buddh International Circuit near New Delhi on October 28-30.
