F1 @ Yas Marina Circuit Abu Dhabi


Lucky to get a ticket for the first F1 in Abu Dhabi’s brand new Yas Marina Circuit!!

Also it was the last race of the season and the champion was already decided,but still 80 million eyes on the first ever race in Abu Dhabi!

Once arrived you hear every single person saying”wow”!!

And i must say it is something really unique if you see this complex with your own eyes.

A huge track with a yacht harbor in the middle and off course the Yas Hotel what opens the 5th of November.

The track looked amazing and proved to be very very fast with a lot of overtaking possibilities.

Also there was a special light system as it was world first day into twilight race.

In the morning and afternoon it was the Porsche cup what was doing trials and time-lapse,and the 3d final testlaps for the F1.

At 5pm,everything was ready for a ear-destroying,rubber burning spectacular qualifying race.

Hamilton grabbed the pole and the 2 RedBull cars got 2nd and 3d.

For sure a must see next year if you are a car/race lover as the track is something you have to see once in a life time!

Hope you enjoy my pics below,

Regards S

      Thanks a lot!I also had some GB’s but it’s really difficult to get a good action shot of those rockets!!!
      I had 85% of shots which were unsuitable to use,lucky i kept shooting so i had some usable pics,hahaha!!
      The track and Ferrari park were truly amazing!!
      I can’t wait to see Yas Hotel get “switched on” on the 5th!
      Bets regards Seb.
