With the F1 race weekend nearing as the Indian GP is set to see the motor sport circus take centre-stage in India on Sunday, F1 teams and drivers seemed to have a gala time in the country.
The Indian GP which will not feature on the 2014 F1 calendar has seen a lot of excitement from fans as it could witness the crowning of Sebastian Vettel as a four time F1 champion as he would join Juan Manuel Fangio and Michael Schumacher as the only men to win four titles in a row.
The F1 drivers who started arriving in India in the last few days have been tweeting their experiences of the country which is hosting an F1 race for the third time.
The first Indian GP was hosted at the Buddh International Circuit (BIC) in 2011 and Sebastian Vettel has won both the Indian GPs so far.
There will be no Indian GP in 2014 and so this race over the weekend is set to be the last for some time.
