New Delhi: McLaren driver Sergio Perez (left in pic) believes that Formula One is getting highly popular in India. He says the sport certainly "needs India" and hopes the race returns in 2015 after giving the next season a miss.
"It is a shame that the Indian Grand Prix is not happening in India next year. I think Formula 1 needs India and it is getting more and more popular every time we come here. I really hope we can come back," Perez told IANS in an interview here Wednesday.
The Indian GP was taken off the 2014 calendar as it did not make sense to host the race in late 2014 and early 2015, when the Grand Prix is scheduled to return to the Buddh International Circuit (BIC).
