.Karthikeyan says that Indian GP circuit is challenging for the Pirelli as there are very few conventional straight-forward corners. FIA recently declared that 2012 Indian GP DRS extended zone, between Turn 3 to Turn 4 has been extended by 80 metres.
“Obviously this is the most anticipated race on the calendar for me and there is already a great buzz around the event. The layout of the Buddh International Circuit is a great mix which makes it challenging for the tyres as there are very few conventional straight-forward corners but since the surface isn’t abrasive at all, wear shouldn’t be an issue.” Karthikeyan said.
“I’ve got great memories from last year’s Grand Prix as I had a great weekend; the car was good and we were quick. I hope this year things go even better and I can dedicate it to the fans who are showing me so much support. I can’t wait to get out on track!”.
