Yas Marina F1 Circuit Model

Where will you be on November 14?

Formula One tickets for the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix was made available worldwide last month. The ticket booth at the Dubai Mall gave a visitors a chance to see the miniature model of Yas Marina Circuit.

The circuit is situated on Yas Island, about 30 minutes from the capital of the UAE, Abu Dhabi. Yas Marina is the second Formula One track in the Middle East, with the first being in Bahrain. Designed as an Arabian version of Monaco, the twenty-one corners twists through the man made island.

The Yas Marina Hotel. It is the first new in the world to be built within a Formula 1 circuit.The hotel consists of two twelve story hotel towers, one set within the race circuit and another placed in the Marina itself. 

The circuit has four grandstand areas (Main Grandstand, West Grandstand, North Grandstand and South Grandstand) and part of its pit lane exit runs underneath the track.

Reception -- Nico Rosberg and Fernando Alonso commeneted that every corner was unique. Giancarlo Fisichiella though dislikes the pit exit which dips under the main circuit by way of a tunnel. Fisichiella says it was both difficult and dangerous.
