Dhoni to attend Formula One Grand Prix on Sunday?

October 29, 2011 21:42 IST

His love for speed is no secret and India skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni on Sunday hinted that he might witness India's first Formula One Grand Prix on Sunday.

"I always wanted to see a Formula One race. Let's hope for the best," Dhoni said.

"It's a big event and of course it's happening for the first time in India. I am looking forward to it. I am a speed freak myself in the sense that I love bikes. The only race that I witnessed was a superbike race in South Africa," he said.

Dhoni said he would be cheering for Force India and at the same time he would also have an eye on Indian driver Narain Karthikeyan, who will represent Hispania Racing Team.

"I want Force India to do really well. Second preference would be Narain Karthikeyan," Dhoni said.
