The first Formula 1™ Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix took place last year at the most beautiful, innovative and luxurious motorsport circuit ever built.
Situated on Yas Island, just off the coast of Abu Dhabi, Yas Marina Circuit is a short drive from the capital city of the United Arab Emirates and adjacent to the international airport.
Yas Marina Circuit is unique. It is the only circuit in the world where a 500 bedroom, 5-star hotel actually straddles the track! The Yas Hotel guests have access to the Paddock via a purpose-built footbridge and their own entrance to the circuit.
Every single grandstand seat on Yas Marina Circuit is under cover – another world first. It is all a part of a strategy that puts people first, whether spectators, teams, media or corporate guests and partners.
From the Yacht Club to the Media Centre, to the Team Buildings and the Marina, the Yas Drag Racing Centre and Yas Driving Academy, Yas Marina Circuit is built on quality, style and state-of-the-art technology..
THE FINAL RACE
The 2010 Formula 1™ Etihad Airways Grand Prix will be the last race of the 2010 Formula 1™ season. The championship will be decided in the final race, between four contenders…
Fernando Alonso has the points lead, the experience of winning two titles, and a fiercely determined, relentless approach that makes him the last person anyone would want to be in a title fight against.
Mark Webber has the fastest car, has overcome incredible adversity, has proved to the F1 world that he can go toe to toe with the fastest drivers on the grid and come out on top.
Sebastian Vettel has the advantage on pure speed and two dominant wins from the last three races.
Lurking in their wake is Lewis Hamilton, realistically out of contention unless something bizarre happens. His McLaren just isn’t as quick as a Red Bull or a Ferrari these days.
If you get chance, be sure to watch this Championship deciding race on Sunday!
