Hyderabad, 5th March, 2015: For the first time ever, Hyderabad will play host to the Infiniti Red Bull Racing team who are bringing their Formula One car to Hyderabad for the Red Bull F1 Showrun. On the 5th of April at the Hussain Sagar Lake, driving the car will be 13-time Grand Prix winner, David Coulthard.
After a long period of Indian audiences missing out on seeing any F1 action in the country, 4 time championship winning team – Infiniti Red Bull Racing – will touch down on Indian soil and for the first time in Hyderabad. In 2011, the team had set a world record by driving on the highest motorable road in Khardung-la, Kashmir. The same year, Daniel Ricciardo drove the car down the iconic boulevard of Rajpath in Delhi, while veteran David Coulthard had earlier taken the car for a spin on the Sea Link in Mumbai in 2009.
Here’s where all the action will unfold:
Date: April 5, 2015
Venue: Hussain Sagar Lake, Hyderabad
