Much like Duabi, Abu Dhabi has enjoyed rapid expansion on the back of the oil boom and is now home to some of the world's most imortant financial institutions, a high density of five-star resorts and state-of-the-art facilities. Furthermore, with the mega-metropolis of Dubai a relatively short distance away and with easy transit points to the rest of the planet through two of the world's biggest and busiest airports, Abu Dhabi is a fitting destination for F1. HISTORY Following on from the Bahrain Grand Prix, Abu Dhabi became the second Middle East location to host an F1 race, making its debut on the schedule in 2009. Held at the innovative, purpose-built Yas Marina Circuit, the venue is positioned on Yas Island, with the track's layout snaking through the marina and sand dunes. Unusual features of the circuit include a twisty exit to the pit-lane, which passes beneath the end of the main straight, large run-off areas and the distinctive Viceroy Hotel, which bridges the circuit in the final sector.
