Delhi terror no problem for F1 - Chandhok

Global Motorsport Media

Wednesday's terror attack in F1 host city Delhi is no threat to the inaugural Indian Grand Prix next month.

That is the view of Team Lotus' Indian reserve driver Karun Chandhok, a day after 12 people were killed when a briefcase bomb exploded outside the Delhi high court.

Reports said the attack would heighten "concerns about the nation's security vulnerabilities" just over a month before the country is due to host Formula One for the first time.

Chandhok told the Telegraph: "I cannot recall sporting events such as (cricket) or the Commonwealth Games having problems.

"Geographically, too, the track is in Greater Noida, which is actually in Uttar Pradesh, a different state from Delhi," he added.

F1's other Indian driver Narain Karthikeyan wrote on Twitter: "Things really need to step up -- we should be able to feel safe in our own nation."
