"F1 is as popular in India as cricket in France but things will improve drastically in the years to come. The media coverage has been overwhelming and people here want to know more about the sport," Ecclestone said at the paddock area of the Buddh International Circuit.
The President and CEO of Formula One Management and Formula One Administration expressed satisfaction with the organization of the inaugural Indian Grand Prix.
"There will always be issues for the first time but Jaypee has done a great job in building this fantastic circuit," said Eccletsone.
When asked about a stray dog coming on the track on Oct 28 while the practice session was underway, Ecclestone said, "It should not have happened but it is not a big thing. It happened in Turkey as well."
