Lewis is more than familiar with Yas Marina Circuit: since the track made its Formula One debut in 2009, no other driver has led for more laps (86) than him. In the 2011 season, he was race winner, and in 2009 and 2012, he started from pole position.
"The race in Abu Dhabi is always a fun weekend and one which I really enjoy. The circuit and the whole Yas Marina complex are so impressive and racing from the sunshine into the twilight is quite special," said Lewis. "With three races left of the season, we are still pushing and there is a lot that our team can achieve in that period. It's all about consistency now and making sure that both Nico and I score good points so that we can keep the other teams behind us. We're up for the challenge!"
