Abu Dhabi race preview

The penultimate race of the 2011 Formula One season will take place at the Yas Marina circuit in Abu Dhabi on November 13. Although essentially a dead rubber because of wunderkind Sebastian Vettel’s stellar run this season, one’ll hope to see if the German can make it a perfect three winsin three appearances here.

The penultimate race of the 2011 Formula One season will take place at the Yas Marina circuit in Abu Dhabi on November 13. Although essentially a dead rubber because of wunderkind Sebastian Vettel’s stellar run this season, one’ll hope to see if the German can make it a perfect three wins
in three appearances here.

However, it is the race for second place that will be interesting to follow and with McLaren’s Jenson Button, currently the frontrunner in the race, closely followed by Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso and Red Bull’s Mark Webber. Even McLaren teammate Lewis Hamilton has an outside chance of
working his way to second best.

The circuit becomes a makeshift carnival at the time of the day-and-night Grand Prix and so, what better way to kick back and relax (given that there isn’t too much to look forward to in terms of an exciting last minute finish at the top) than to listen to the likes of Incubus, Paul McCartney and Britney Spears? This one’s not fun written all over it.
