The 2014 edition was scrapped for "political" problems even though the JPSI, promoter of the event, has a five-year contract with Formula One. "I think it (Indian Grand Prix) will come back. They have put in great efforts to put this track together. It is such an impressive track. The F1 calendar is changing every year. The fans would be missing the action but I am sure it will come back," Hamilton told reporters on the sidelines of a promotional event on Wednesday.

"Hopefully it will become part of culture here in India and lot more people would be enjoying it," he added. The race has already been dropped from next year's schedule. The third season of the Indian Grand Prix will be held at the Buddh International circuit this weekend and the 28-year-old Hamilton said he is itching to give his best on this track.

"I want to do better here. Characteristic wise it is a similar circuit to Korea. Having the experience of racing in Korea, the performance this weekend will be stronger," said Hamilton.

"I can't wait to get into my car. It is different team, a different phase of my life and I want to make most of it,” he said. Aiming to put an emphatic show in the upcoming event, the British driver also wants to tantalize his taste buds on his visit here and wishes to explore the countryside to understand Indian culture better.

"At some stage I want to travel here. I want to see the countryside and want to see more of life here. India is such a big place and it has so much to offer. And I want to some more food, some more restaurants. I am hoping this weekend to try more restaurants with my family and get some delicious food in our bellies," Hamilton said when asked what else he was looking forward to on his India visit.
