Large screens will be on at The Forum, Koramangala, and the Cafe Coffee Day outlets at Jayanagar, Lavelle Road, and Indiranagar.

There are an increasing number of Formula One racing fans in Bangalore, who follow the F1 calendar from the beginning of the season in March to mid-October.

Proof of this was the large turnout at events held last year. The trend continues this season.
