The inaugural Indian Grand Prix was a major success as an event.
The drivers universally praised the layout of the 3.2-mile 16-turn circuit, and all agreed that swerving to avoid sacred cows sunbathing in the middle of the track provided challenges unique to the Indian Grand Prix.
"Not knowing when a rabid dog may suddenly run across the track certainly keeps you on your toes," said Jenson Button.
However, Lewis Hamilton, who crashed on lap 24 after skidding through some cow manure just off the racing line, wasn't quite as impressed.
All India enjoyed watching the post race celebrations. As Mukesh Kumar, a shoe shiner in New Delhi, commented "It was so exciting to see champagne with a value far exceeding my children's higher education fund being sprayed all over the place."
