The Buddh International Circuit was buzzing with activity and big names. It was Thursday, the day to check out each and every corner of the phenomenal track that is one of the fastest on the F1 calendar.
Drivers and their teams strode out on the sunny day albeit with a wintery nip in the air. Each took their time covering the 5.165 kms of hairpin bends, high-speed straights and the rest of the mix.
While the Caterham team went about it like business, Toro Rosso staying true to the Red Bull spirit found Daniel Ricciardo tossing a ball to his team mates, as they covered the stretch.
Force India stood out in their all-too-familiar livery. And Jean Ericc Vergne would have had hearts racing if there had been enough women around.
Not far behind was the FIA crew led by Race Director, Charlie Whiting.
