Sahara Force India Formula One™ Team, India's only F1™ team, is celebrating the incredible career of cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar at the 2013 Formula 1™ Airtel Indian Grand Prix™
As the thrill of Formula One™ arrives in New Delhi, Sahara Force India unveiled a special tribute to Tendulkar, who recently announced his retirement from cricket. During the 2013 Formula 1™ Airtel Indian Grand Prix™ weekend, both Sahara Force India cars will be sporting a special hashtag - #masterblaster, referring to Sachin Tendulkar's nickname - owing to the prowess on the crease that made him a fixture in the record books.
Sachin Tendulkar is a legend of cricket and a great friend of the team. He was a welcome guest at our headquarters in 2009 and supported us as a guest at the 2011 Formula 1™ Airtel Indian Grand Prix™ During his career, spanning more than 22 years, Sachin accumulated a list of honours and achievements hard to match for any sportsman or sportswoman. He scored the highest number of centuries in test matches (51), had the most overall number of runs in the sport and was voted 2010 ICC Cricketer of the Year.
Like Sachin Tendulkar, Sahara Force India aims to be a big hitter in the world of sport. With our cars adorned with the commemorative hashtag, our team will endeavour to harness the passion of an entire country and achieve a great result at our home race, the 2013 Formula 1™ Airtel Indian Grand Prix™.
