People forgot FI for an hour and stood in awe as crickets demi-god Sachin Tendulkar walked into the Budh International Circuits paddock area for the inaugural Airtel Indian Grand Prix.

The hard work shows. The effort has paid. Jaypee Group has put up a grand show. I am proud that I have come here to cheer Sahara Force India team, an enthralled Sachin told FE. He was accompanied with wife Anjali.

Tendulkar admitted that he has been a fan of F1 and seven-time world champion Michael Schumaker for long. Tendulkar and Formula 1 chief Bernie Ecclestone had a brief chat about the Formula 1 race which was to take place later in the day. Even I dont remember when was the last time we met but I am looking forward to meet him, said Tendulkar.

Besides Tendulkar, Bollywoods badshah Shah Rukh Khan was also present at the GP to cheer for Force India. Yes I am here to cheer for them. They are driving with the poster of my movie Ra-One. That apart, its a great feeling to witness the greatest of motor sports happening in India, he said.
