Inside abandoned F1 track left frozen in time a decade after last Grand Prix with names of retired drivers still up

AN ABANDONED F1 track has been frozen in time a decade on from its last race. Vettel won that Grand Prix – as he did the two previous times it was staged in 2011 and 2012 – during his dominant period in F1. With 16 turns spanning the 5.125km track, Vettel held the lap record with a blistering 1:27.249 in 2011. After the F1 Grand Prix was pulled from the calendar, there were no international events held at the circuit between 2014 and 2022 – except the 2016 Asia Road Racing Championship. However, the circuit will make its major return to motorsport in 2023 with the MotoGP Grand Prix of India – scheduled for round 13 of the season on September 24.
