The Indian Grand Prix is the most recent of a series of Asian races to join the Formula 1 World Championship. The Buddh International Circuit made its first appearance in 2011 and is made up of two long straights and a mix of turns that severely test drivers and engineers alike. The track goes up and down, with 8% downhill slopes and 10% inclines and has a width of up to 20 metres in some areas that make for various overtaking opportunities.
