London:

India will definitely host a Formula One race in New Delhi in 2011, according to F1 boss Bernie Ecclestone.

Ecclestone said he and Indian partner Jaiprakash Associates were "fully committed" to bringing a race to the Indian capital.

"Of course, we will deliver. Otherwise we wouldn't have entered into an agreement," Ecclestone told the BBC.

Construction on a circuit in New Delhi has yet to begin.

India, with a population of more than 1 billion and possessing one of the world's fastest-growing economies, has been talked about as a potential race host since Force India entered the sport last season.

"It's a large, large country with a big population and it's good for the sponsors, car manufacturers and everyone involved in Formula One," Ecclestone said.
