The qualifiers are over and all eyes are now on the final day of F1 action at the Buddh International Circuit in Greater Noida. Before the action starts, here is a look at the drivers who are headed for Grand Prix glory.Sebastian VettelIt is difficult to look beyond the two-time world champion, who starts in pole position for the 13th time out of 17 races this season.Vettel’s dominance has been reminiscent of Michael Schumacher’s glory years with Ferrari, with the Red Bull car being superior to all their rivals’. The combination has already wrapped up the drivers’ and constructors’ championships, but their hunger for success just doesn’t diminish.At the technically demanding Buddh International Circuit, Red Bull-Renault’s strength in aerodynamics should stand them in good stead. Sebastian Vettel has been consistently quick through the practice and qualifying sessions, and has showcased his smooth driving style, which is necessary at this circuit because of its dusty nature.A marginal mistake can cost a driver valuable seconds if he slips off the racing line, and Vettel has the edge over his competitors in that department as well.The only thing that could stop him from winning the race, apart from luck, is the fact that both Red Bull and Vettel have expressed a desire to concentrate their efforts on helping teammate Mark Webber clinch second place in the championship.Jenson ButtonBut for Vettel, this Briton could easily have been the driver of the season for a few of his storming drives. He has won three races – in Canada, Hungary and Japan – and has an equal number of second and third places as well.advertisementThe race in Canada proved beyond doubt that Jenson Button’s championship win in 2009 was not all down to the then-dominant Brawn GP car he drove. Button had to make five pitstops, got run into by his McLaren teammate Hamilton, sustained a puncture, served a drivethrough penalty, made 26 on-track passes and then overtook Vettel on the last lap to win the longest race in history.Since then, especially during races at the quicker circuits like Spa (Belgium), Monza (Italy) and Suzuka (Japan), he has looked the likeliest man to cut through the field, and has done so with his smooth-as-silk driving style, which helps conserve tyres for longer stints too.He said on Thursday that he likes the look of the Buddh International Circuit, which promises multiple overtaking opportunities in every lap, unlike some of its other modern counterparts.Expect Button, who starts fourth, to pounce on the Red Bulls at the first opportunity. He might even create the opportunity himself, like he did by putting pressure on Vettel in Canada.Mark WebberThe Australian veteran says he wouldn’t accept any help from his team in gunning for second place in the drivers’ championship. That speaks volumes about the man who has played second fiddle to Vettel this season, after having come close to the title in 2010 but lost out to Vettel.Despite having a similar car to the world champion, Mark Webber just has two second places and seven third placed-finishes this year. He has a total of 209 points from 16 races, and is 13 points behind McLaren’s Button, who is second on the table.In India, though, Webber has been a strong presence in all the sessions. Though still seemingly lacking the outright pace of a Vettel or a Hamilton, he has been consistently improving his lap times, resulting in a third place in Saturday’s session. A grid penalty to Hamilton has shot him to the front row, though on the ‘dirty’ or nonracing line side of the track.If he can overcome that on the run down to the first corner and leapfrog Vettel, the race could well be sewn up.Fernando AlonsoLet’s face it – this Spaniard isn’t the force he once was, when he was defeating big names like Michael Schumacher and Kimi Raikkonen to the world title in 2005 and 2006.Yet, for some, he remains the most naturally gifted driver in the world, whose two-year-old alliance with the most famous team in the world, Ferrari, hasn’t yet borne fruit.Alonso Fernado won the British Grand Prix in the middle of the year and finished second and third three times each this season. He lies 10 points behind Button in the battle for second place in the drivers’ championship, and needs just a bit more out of his scarlet car.Perhaps it was pushing hard that made him suffer a blown engine in the first practice session in Greater Noida on Friday, though the pace of the Ferraris has been better here than at other circuits in the recent past. Teammate Felipe Massa did top the second practice session, but one issue for the famous Prancing Horses is the seemingly low ride-height of their cars, which is causing the front wing to scrape along the undulating circuit.advertisementAlonso remains one of the fastest drivers off the grid in Formula One, and with the track being very wide in places, it could provide him the ideal opportunity to revert to his aggressive driving style and win the battle fair and square. If only his Ferrari holds up.Lewis HamiltonIf it hadn’t been for a moment on Friday, when he seemed to ignore yellow flags and set his fastest lap time during practice, Briton Lewis Hamilton wouldn’t have been in this section. Instead, a three-place grid penalty has pushed him down from second to fifth for the start in Sunday’s race.But for the F1 ‘bad boy’, it has just been that sort of season. Hardly a race has gone by where he hasn’t been under the stewards’ scanner, mostly for his over-the-top aggression which has led to crashes involving other drivers.It’s not as though Hamilton isn’t capable of driving in a sane manner while going blindingly fast. He proved that in Korea where he stayed subdued, but ended up with the first non-Red Bull pole position of the season and a drive to second place, losing a spot to Vettel. There is also the added emotional low of his break-up with singer Nicole Scherzinger, and Hamilton would be keen to put all that behind him and focus on the track.Expect the 2008 world champion to be a factor in the eventual outcome of the race.

Missing four cuts in succession isn’t an ideal situation going into the US Open, and that too when it is being played at a links course. This is the situation confronting Delhi golfer Shiv Kapur, who is in poor form as he heads to Chambers Bay, Washington, for the second Major of the season starting on Thursday.But Kapur takes heart from his feat of qualifying for the championship last month, and feels one ‘good’ round can put him in the right frame of mind.”It’s true that I haven’t been in good form of late but I take encouragement from positives. I missed some cuts in the last one month but in between I made it to the US Open with a second-place finish at the qualifiers in England. That was a high point and I am looking forward to repeating that performance this week,” he told Mail Today from the US.Kapur, who will appear at the US Open for the second year in a row, said: “Last year, I played with a free mind and finished tied 23rd. I am not in a good form now but am not feeling any pressure either. I need just one good round to storm into contention.” The Indian missed cuts at the Asian Tour’s Mauritius Open and European Tour events in England, Dubai and Sweden in the last one-and-a-half months.The conditions at Chambers Bay can’t be taken lightly. A new links course, known for its sloping fairways and greens, tall rough and strong wind, is hosting a PGA Tour event for the first time which is expected to make scoring tougher. Is Kapur prepared for this challenge?advertisement”The US Open is being held on a new course which makes the competition even for all. As far as my preparations are concerned, I have played on two different links course in New York last week. I have played two nine-hole practice rounds at Chambers Bay. I have played on links in Scotland. So, I am prepared well,” he said.”But I need to execute my plans well because a small error in judgment on a sloping surface can take me many yards away from the target. I also have to be more accurate in my putting because greens are also sloping.” Kapur will not be the lone Indian at the US Open and will be accompanied by compatriot Anirban Lahiri. “It’s good to have Anirban here. We share a good camaraderie and have been practicing together here,” he signed off.
