Fomrula 1 has returned to India for its second shot at the fantastic Buddh International Circuit. And we have the roundup on who's touched down ahead of the big weekend!

Force India's Nico Hulkenberg and Paul DiResta have already met the press and promised F1 fans a special race. And they've got down to sightseeing right away. First stop, India Gate.

Felipe Massa headed out to the Taj, before he gets into the groove.

Mark Webber caught up with Gautam Gambhir at an event and was challenged to a game of cricket. Can the Aussie handle a bat?

As for Nico Rosberg, we know where he'll be heading - Old Delhi. Watch him take a rickshaw ride, below.

@williamsF1team tweeted, 'Late night and we've arrived in #India - just need to get to the hotel and then catch up on a bit of sleep.'

But Andrew Murdoch and Paul Williams were way too excited, with their brand new Indian scarves to hit the bed before they posed for a picture.

Narain Karthikeyan had a head-start. But he was a sourpusss!

@narainracing: Past midnight and still no respite. Seems like everyone in Delhi suddenly fancies a paddock pass. Grrrr!! #airtelIndianGP

Liven up, Narain! This is your home GP!

We know that Heiki Kovaleinen is on his way here. He tweeted last night, 'Last training session tonight at the Yas Marina circuit before flying to India tomorrow. Been good training week in hot conditions.'

Unfortunately, Karun Chandhok is giving the Indian GP a miss.

@karunchandhok: while the F1 world descends into Delhi, i'm off to Shanghai tonight for the last round of the World Endurance C'ship !!

Lotus Renault's Grosjean was utterly thrilled to be heading over. @RGrosjean: On the plane to Delhi with @RicoF1 @F1TotalOfficial @F1alaUne and some other good friends. It will make the flight shorter and more fun

Marussia's Timo Glock is in town and is busy doing his PR exercise.

Fernando Alonso, who never goes into a twitter frenzy, has been pretty consistent with reports of intense sessions on the simulator. And now, he's here to get a taste of it in person.

@alo-official: Arrive in India. Start preparing work program with engineers Also, special day tomorrow with #unicef , I will update you..;)
