At the brand new Buddh circuit, television broadcasters were horrified to discover that the commentary booths did not have windows.

"I might as well be in Shepherd's Bush," said the BBC's David Coulthard.

So annoyed were Coulthard and his colleagues that the broadcasters called a meeting with F1 chief executive Bernie Ecclestone.

In charge of the design of the new Indian venue was Hermann Tilke.

On the window controversy, he told Auto Motor und Sport: "This is a problem that we definitely have to solve."

As for whether the solution will be in place for 2012, he answered: "We'll see."
