Foolproof medical arrangements have been made for the event.

"An FIA medical team has visited referral hospitals everything has been found satisfactory. The FIA team has given a green signal to the medical arrangements," said JPSI's Askari Zaidi.

A mock drill of medical services has been conducted, with an air ambulance helicopter flying to Fortis Hospital from the venue to inspect the preparedness.

To provide timely medical aid to race drivers in the event of any mishap, organisers of the first Indian Grand Prix had arranged medical facilities as per the guidelines of Federation Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA), the international governing body of the races.

While two air ambulances have been stationed at the Buddh International Circuit, a medical centre having specialised operation theatres have been set up at the circuit site. Doctors and paramedical staff will be present round-the-clock at the circuit during the racing period.
