Daniel Ricciardo has driven a Red Bull showcar in New Delhi as part of the build-up to the inaugural Indian Grand Prix.

Following on from Lewis Hamilton's run in a McLaren in Bangalore last week - which attracted a crowd of over 40,000 - spectators were able to see Red Bull in action in the Indian capital. Ricciardo reached over 300km driving down the Rajpath, with Rashtrapati Bhavan and India Gate forming the backdrop.

The ceremonial boulevard was lined with fans for the demonstration, and Ricciardo described the day as "truly exhilarating".

"It was a proud moment for me to be the first F1 driver to race down the Rajpath," Ricciardo said. "Today's drive was truly exhilarating especially with the legions of cheering fans who lined up the road. I've never seen anything like this before but I'm sure that Red Bull has set millions of pulses racing as India waits for the lights to turn green at the grand prix later this month."
