New Delhi: Drivers run the show but it's the fans who make a Formula One race special and the Indian Grand Prix can become one of the most exciting races on the calendar if the home fans support the event, outgoing McLaren star Lewis Hamilton said today.

Close to one lakh people had thronged the Buddh International Circuit (BIC) to watch the inaugural Indian GP last year but it looks it won't be a full house this time around.

"The track and the good crowd make the race exciting. In Singapore and Silverstone, it's full of people. When in Spain and Montreal, the city comes alive. It's the fans who make it special. So if people can turn out, it can become one of the most exciting Grands Prix," Hamilton said ahead of the second edition of the Indian Grand Prix.
