Vettel looking forward to Indian rollercoaster

By on Friday, October 19, 2012

Sebastian Vettel is looking forward to a return to India, describing the Buddh circuit as 'like a roller coaster'.

The German dominated in India last season and claimed his maiden Grand Chelem: pole position, the race victory, fastest race lap and leading every lap.

"I loved the track layout last year, but not just because I won the race. With an average speed of 235kph, the course is the second quickest of the year after Monza", he said.

"There is a lot of elevation change around the lap which adds to the fun, from as much as 8% downhill and up to 10% uphill; it’s like a roller coaster! It really has emerged as one of the most challenging circuits on the calendar for the drivers".

Team-mate Mark Webber is also eager to return to India.

"It's a challenging venue and I really enjoy the track, it's a nice circuit to drive. There was a massive crowd there last year and it was a good atmosphere", he said.

"The track is similar to Korea with mainly long straights in sector 1 followed by a very busy sector 2 and 3, so we need to get the balance right between downforce and top speed. It should be reasonably straightforward weather-wise and I'm looking forward to getting out there".
