F1 drivers stunned by Indian poverty


They screech in on private jets and party with the rich and famous, but Formula One’s pampered drivers admitted India’s grinding poverty had given them a jolting reality check.
Although the brand new Buddh International Circuit appears, against many expectations, to be ready for the inaugural Indian Grand Prix, the plush facilities cannot hide the sheer squalor of the country outside. Britain’s Jenson Button said coming to India was “difficult” for the drivers, who have been stunned at the living conditions glimpsed outside their luxury hotels.


    • What’s wrong with you; these are not pakistan’s views, these are the formula One drivers who view you

      • And you knwo what the world says about you ???? Shameless bunch of beggars and terrorists….What your enemies used to say about you today your allies and friends are saying….
        Delhi Metro, Terminal 3 and now Metro in Bangalore your media don't know about that hahha Since this formula1 make you look so bad you had to quote someone…haha

  1. hey nik take light even the world knows that pakis get nightmares of india,and they too believe to take just opposite what wealthy pakis tell about poor indians hehhehhe.just ask pakis foster daddy AMERICANS ,we indians gave birth to them after all

  2. i think paki thinks they r rich even they don't have stopped their trains. we have metros in delhi banglore, kolkattaed trains, new airports, F1 RACE TRACKS, MAKING NEW CITIES, DONT SAY INDIA IS POOR BUT YOU ARE POOR THAN SOMALIA. EVEN LABOURER EARN NOW 250 RUPPES = 450 PAKI RUPPES PER DAY.

        • Yeh my peanut brain is still smarter than you.propaganda loving bhindian whats happening in Pakistan is coming soon to India courtesy of the mighty U.S.A .. At least we Pakistanis don't have to change our names to be accepted by westerners, all —-dy hindians in call centres change their names from harvinder to harry from suhkwinder to simon are you ashamed of your real indian names??? You might as well call your country anything the westerners want and not India ??

          • when you are not ashamed of begging again and again in front of USA for $$$… and u telling us to be ashamed …hahahhah… and you are right you dont have to change names because you all are owned by USA….they are ur masters !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

          • ahh jealous our you so does that mean you want USA to own you too,now I know why you change your names ha ha do what ever you like you'll still be curry loving Indians with weird English accents….

          • Lummy.. Good Luck !! U r still say what ur so called chosen 'Govt' want u to say.. may Allah give you to develop some mind and maturity level so that u can make ur self progressive … Insha Allah..

  3. Honestly, just look all over the internet, the paki papers have only negative things to say about the F1 from poverty to ticket sales to custom duties. Grow up guys, and get your media to as well. While we face these issues, there is a positive feeling that we are doing something about it. Its time to introspect and yeah get your media to get that little bit impartial, the F1 was a SUCCESS… FYI.

  4. Well i have seen this f1 thing in papers all over the world and they seem to praising india for the way it has hosted this galmoros game..even the f1 chief was impressed.
    But pakistani papers are an exception!

    As for the poverty,dont worry india has a 10% economing growth per year and we dont need to worry about poverty because by 2025-2030 this problem is gonna be finished.It's time that we start dreaming big,
