ABU DHABI GRAND PRIX

Formula One has seen plenty of new circuits come and go over the past decade but few have made an impact as significant as Abu Dhabi's Yas Marina. Ultra-modern in every way, in some ways it sets a standard for all newcomers to aspire to. Constructed around a new marina on a man-made island, the circuit features air-conditioned garages, a pitlane exit through a tunnel and a track-spanning hotel with a roof that changes colour. The track itself starts with a couple of high-speed corners before giving way to a second sector featuring two long straights. The last third is a tight and twisty section that demands good traction and braking stability.
