Abu Dhabi GP: Red Bull previews weekend at Yas Marina

Oct.30 (Red Bull) Drivers preview the forthcoming Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, Round 17 of the 2012 Formula One World Championship, at Yas Marina Circuit.

Sebastian Vettel: “In just three years, the race has grown to be one of the highlights of the season. Starting at dusk and finishing in the dark makes it something unique and impressive. I have special memories of the circuit; in 2009 I won there and then repeated the victory in 2010 to win my first world championship, so it’s an event I will never forget. The circuit itself is impressive: 5.5km long, with large run-off areas and a pit lane exit that goes through a tunnel to the other side of the track.”

Mark Webber: “I like the twilight element to the race – starting in the day and finishing at night. The facilities are world class. For the track itself, you need good traction – there are slow and twisty corners, as well as a good top speed. The race has a great atmosphere and it looks good on TV for the fans at home. It’s a phenomenal spectacle and I’m looking forward to racing there.”
