The Indian Grand Prix might make a comeback to Formula 

  • The first Indian Grand Prix was held in 2011 and then in 2012 & 2013
  • The Indian Grand Prix is held at the Buddh International Circuit
  • Chase Carey of Libery Media said India had potential for the sport

The Indian Grand Prix was first held at the Buddh International Circuit in 2011. Subsequently, Formula 1 returned to India in 2012 and 2013, the latter being the year Sebastian Vettel sealed his 4th world championship (and last with Red Bull). The Indian Grand Prix though has not been held since then due to issues with government taxation even though the race track has a contract to hold two more races for the premier motorsport championship. Now though, the chances of Formula 1 coming back to India seem to be bright as new Formula 1 Boss, Chase Carey of Liberty Media recently said that India had great potential for the sport that hasn't been in the country for four years now.

Libery Media recently bought the rights to the sport from Bernie Ecclestone ending his 40 year reign as the head of Formula 1. At the on going Singapore Grand Prix, Liberty Media boss, Chase Carey said, "India is a country that certainly has great potential and as we go forward, we will continue to study. We have so far not got a chance to engage in depth yet, it has only been a little over half a year since the complete change in ownership."

He went on to add, "Our focus as of today is making sure that the 21 races next year is everything as it can be. But there are places around the world that present us with great opportunities for us to grow the sport overtime and certainly a country like India with the success and the growth it has had in recent years, makes it an exciting opportunity down the road."
