Can Formula One Overtake Cricket As No.1 Sports Passion in India?

Sachin Tendulkar had a unique experience and for one, it had not having to do with breaking his own cricket records. Instead his presence at the first ever Indian Formula 1 Grand Prix was almost as important as the race itself.

Michael Schumacher, Sachin Tendulkar

The Buddh International Circuit saw F1 boss, Bernie Ecclestone, personally invite Indian batting’s colossus genius, Sachin Tendulkar, for the inaugural event and Tendulkar had the honour of waving the chequered flag as Red Bull’s double champion racing driver, Sebastien Vettel, was the first to cross the finish line for a record eleventh time in the year to match Michael Schumacher.
Tendulkar has been missing in action on the cricket field and was not seen during the England team’s visit to India for the ODI series with a toe injury. However, he turned up at the Noida venue with his wife, Anjali Tendulkar, and daughter Sara Tendulkar for the prestigious event in a major international motorsport event for India.
Sachin Tendulkar also observed a minute of silence along with the F1 drivers by way of condolence for the tragic deaths of Dan Wheldon and Marco Simoncelli who lost their lives in two separate motorsport accident at the Indy car racing and Moto GP respectively, once again highlighting the perils of high speed racing.
This though is not Tendulkar’s first brush with Formula One, having met Michael Schumacher, then racing with Ferrari, during the British Grand Prix in 2002 when the latter also presented him with his Ferrari which Tendulkar recently sold for a Nissan GTR car.
Tendulkar was one of the high profile celebrities present at the venue along with Bollywood actors as well as fellow cricketers such as Yuvraj Singh and Harbhajan Singh. Tendulkar is said to be have been ecstatic about the prospect of being the one ot wave the chequered flag at the end and tweeted about it as much. Although Tendulkar is perhaps not all that well known across the Formula One world as he is amongst the cricket friendly nation, that he was possibly the highest ranked celebrity outside of the drivers themselves could not be argued.

There is undoubtedly a grand following for Formula One amongst Indians and the fact that the racing was brought to India made it more of a celebration of adrenaline that is not easy to get over as the weekend proved in plenty. However, that it can actually match the crazed following that cricket enjoys in India seems a task even the multi million dollar speed thrill would have earn over time. And that would not be easy with just the one race in India although it would have done a lot towards making more people aware of the sport and perhaps see more viewership from India for more international F1 races, although only two remain in the 2011 season.
While cricket cannot match steps with Formula One racing's worldwide following, it would certainly have a tough task sustaining interest in a sport that will see only one race a year.
