McLaren: Pleased to see F1 fans growing in India



Buddh-International-circuit-flags_2850313McLaren team Principal Martin Whitmarsh says that he is pleased to see F1 fans growing in India. Also he warned next few years will be critical if the sport is to establish a foothold in such a vast territory.

“The Indian Grand Prix has quickly developed into an important Formula 1 event – it’s popular and well attended, and the next few years will be critical if the sport is to establish a foothold in such a vast territory.

“It’s been pleasing to see the enthusiasm that Indian fans have for our sport – and our love for their country is equally reciprocated and I would love to see the race grow in significance over the coming years,” said Whitmarsh in a team preview ahead of the third Indian Grand Prix here this weekend.

McLaren driver Sergio Perez is keen to make an impression in Sunday’s race at the Buddh International Circuit before the one-year break.

“With the race skipping a year for 2014, I hope we can help make this year A’s event particularly memorable. We know we don’t have the machinery to fight the top four teams, but there’s always fierce competition around the fringes of the top 10; scrapping for points might not be what McLaren is all about, but it’s nonetheless satisfying to nail the set-up and the strategy and drive a perfect race,” said Perez.
