Greater Noida:

The official press conference of the Federation Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA) for the inaugural Indian Grand Prix was interrupted by power failure at the Buddh International circuit in Greater Noida on Thursday.

For a good four minutes approximately, the microphones did not work resulting in a  brief interruption of the press conference.

Williams driver Rubens Barrichello was addressing the media when the lights went off, much to the embarrassment of the organisers here.

Besides Barrichello, five other drivers who addressed the press conference were Adrian Sutil, the driver of the home team - Sahara Force India, Team Lotus driver Jarno Trulli, legendary Michael Schumacher from Team Mercedes, Ferrari driver Felipe Massa and India's very own Narain Karthikeyan.

The 5.14 km-long track with 16 corners at the Buddh International Circuit will hosts India's first-ever Formula One Grand Prix on Sunday with practice sessions starting Friday morning.
