It’s not really particularly easy to come up with a lot of stats for a track that’s only been raced at once, with every single lap being led by Sebastian Vettel, but I shall try my best anyway!The Buddh International Circuit is a 5.137km circuit with 16 corners and 60 laps, a race distance of 308.220km, the 7th longest race distance of the year. The lap record was (surprise surprise) set by Sebastian Vettel last year with a time of 1:27.249, an average speed of 122kph, exactly the same average speed as Sepang.
Last season after winning the Indian Grand Prix Red Bull Racing won the Constructors’ Championship, if they get a 1-2 finish on Sunday they would only need around 10 points in Abu Dhabi to win their third consecutive Constructors’ Championship, which would be the second time that a Renault powered constructor has won three consecutive Constructors’ Championships, having previously been done by Williams-Renault between 1992 and 1994.
The 2012 Korean Grand Prix was the 200th pole position for Renault engines, now only 8 pole positions short of the record that Ferrari currently hold. If a Renault engined car were to win in India it would be the 150th Renault win.
The Silly Stats
If you had 1619 Tuk-Tuks and laid them out nose to tail on the Buddh International Circuit they would lap the circuit once and they would weigh 1,115,824kg, which is around the weight of 1743 Formula One cars at minimum weight (640kg).
The average elephant walks at 9kph and would take 34:14.800 to do a single walking lap of the Buddh International Circuit, they run at a speed up to 25kph, which would take them 7:42.330 for a lap, providing that they can maintain that same speed for 8 whole minutes.
