Mercedes-Benz at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix

One of the jewels in Abu Dhabi's crown, the 5.554-kilometre Yas Marina Circuit hosted the country's inaugural Grand Prix in 2009. This event represented the first twilight race in Formula One, with powerful lighting ensuring a seamless transition from day to night.

Designed by Hermann Tilke, the layout features nine right turns, 12 left turns and is one of the few venues on the calendar to run in an anti-clockwise direction.

The track also has a number of features unique amongst Grand Prix venues: running alongside the island’s purpose-built marina, underneath the five-star Yas Viceroy hotel and alongside the 60-metre sun tower, while the exit of the pit lane crosses underneath the circuit.

The track was designed with racing in mind. In addition to the waterside marina area, there are high-speed sections, long straights, tight corners for overtaking and a street circuit-style final sector. Factor in the intense desert heat and these diverse elements come together to create one of the longest and most demanding tracks of the season.
