New Delhi, Mar 6 (UNI) The Bahrain International Circuit (BIC) today welcomed India to be a team owner and fellow member of the fifth Gulf Air Bahrain Grand Prix.
''We are keen to welcome the Force India F1 team and the many Indian Formula One fans who are looking forward to hosting their own race in the near future,'' BIC Chief Executive Officer Martin Whitaker told mediapersons here.
The Force India F1 team will make their debut in the event which will see 11 teams taking part. Defending champions Ferrari are the favourites to retain their crown after a dominant display during pre-season testing.
Apart from the F1 event, there will be several supporting races including the GP2 Asia series, the Lumina CSV Championship Middle East and the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup.
