Often described as a ground-breaking combination of style and function, Yas Marina Circuit has been inspired by the culture and values of Abu Dhabi. The stunning facility includes a 5.55km Formula 1TM track, where races are driven anti-clockwise and drivers are challenged with 21 different turns (12 left turns and nine right turns).
The race track is surrounded by
five grandstands –the Main Grandstand, North Grandstand, West Grandstand, South
Grandstand and Marina Grandstand – which can accommodate a combined total of
more than 50,000 spectators. In addition, Yas Marina Circuit is the only
motorsports venue in the world where every grandstand is covered.
Visitors can enter Yas Marina
Circuit through the main entrance (behind the West Grandstand) or the north
entrance (close to Ferrari World Abu Dhabi), with gates open from 9am during
this year’s Grand Prix. Visitors tend to remark on the series of architectural
marvels, including the Yas Viceroy hotel, a stunning five-star facility that
straddles the track, with outstanding views of the racing action, and the Yas
Yacht Club, which is located at the entrance to the Yas Marina which provides
an exclusive retreat for yacht owners and guests.
Other facilities within Yas
Marina Circuit include the F1TM Village and Oasis areas, pit
buildings, team villas, medical centre, helicopter pads, state of the art media
centre, broadcasters’ commentary booths, race control area, and of course The
Paddock Club TM - Formula 1TM's exclusive corporate
hospitality and networking venue, frequented by drivers, team principles,
sponsors, celebrities, VIPs and the captains of global industry.
