Team Lotus on Twitter: "It's hazy, it's crazy and it's a bit too early to be tweeting (curfew breaks at 8) but anyway... Namaste from Saturday at the Indian GP!"
The sun is out
Jenson Button on Twitter: "Morning from a sunny New Delhi.. On the way to the circuit and it feels like Practice 3 has already started!!! #tuktukracing!"
BBC Sport's Sarah Holt in Greater Noida: "Hello again. The new circuit outside India's capital, Delhi, got the thumbs up from the drivers after their first tours of the track. But new circuit or not it was still Friday pacesetters Ferrari, Red Bull and McLaren who were the main contenders once again. A dusty track meant the racing line has not bedded in properly yet and the leading cars were still some way off the estimated pole time, which many F1 experts reckon will be around one minute 23 seconds. A blanket of smog is still cutting off the horizon but the sun is straining to break through for final practice, in which all the teams will want to push the limits of their cars even further ahead of qualifying."
0615: Good, because today is as much about you lot as anyone else. Help me make this happen. Just tweet me @bbcsport_david using the Twitter hashtag #BBCF1 or text in on 81111 (UK). Simples.
0610: The guy who ended up snatching the headlines was Formula 1's forgotten man, Felipe Massa. The Ferrari racer clocked a lap of one minute, 25.706 seconds to pip Vettel, Fernando Alonso, Hamilton and Mark Webber. Today is all about the third and final free practice session at 0630 followed by qualifying at 0930. You ready?
0605: Well, that's the boon on offer for one lucky driver in a few hours' time. But that man will not be Britain's Lewis Hamilton. The 2008 world champion suffered his latest setback in a forgettable campaign in Friday practice when he was slapped with a three-place grid penalty for Sunday's race. He set the top time in FP1 while the caution flags were being waved. Harsh but fair.
0600: Forget the 2011 season is drawing to a close. Forget the drivers' championship is in the bag for Sebastian Vettel. Forget the constructors' title has been sealed by Red Bull. Wouldn't it be nice to say you qualified on pole for the first-ever Indian Grand Prix?
