I stumbled upon these pictures on the official F1 website. It seems that Martin Brundle and David Coulthard were able to get a sneak preview of the circuit. They were given two Yas Marina GP2 looking, two-seater, cars to tear their way through the freshly built track. The circuit is situated on top of Abu Dhabi’s man-made island at a length of 5.5 kilometers. There are 21 turns and a scheduled 55 laps.
The following pictures might cause frustration and anger (unless you already booked your ticket to the Emirate) and a great heavenly feeling. From what the pictures illustrate, it looks like Abu Dhabi could knock off Bahrain as the best looking Middle Eastern track. We shall wait and see.
