She had vowed Cannes with her saree, but Bollywood beauty Deepika Padukone was seen in a all-together more glamorous avatar as she cheered on her favourite F1 team, ‘Force India’ at the British Grand Prix.
Dressed in her team’s jersey and black shorts, the former model cut a striking figure as she cheered on from the paddock and posed alongside the pit girls.
"The energy and buzz of the place on race weekend is something else. I am here to cheer for Force India who have been my favourite," said the actress in a press statement.
The 24-year-old was cheering for the Force India Formula One team today during the qualifying session and will be there to scream her lungs out tomorrow during the British Grand Prix races.
Force India’s Adrian Sutil and Tonio Liuzzi Adrian Sutil will start 11th and 15th on the grid. Deepika is not the only Bollywood star with a love of racing.
