Hi-res picture guide to the newest F1 venue

The final round of the Formula One World Championship takes place on a new circuit in Abu Dhabi this weekend - and has a hi-res picture guide of the venue.

Hi-res pictures of the Yas Marinas circuit

The Yas Marina track has a waterfront location and has been designed to have a Monaco-esque feel including several tight, walled sections and a tunnel.

It also has a few fast sweeps, and what will be the longest straight in F1.

The pit exit is also noteworthy, as it curves under the track in a narrow tunnel before the cars join the circuit before turn three.

With the pit lane speed limit ending before the tunnel, drivers will be accelerating right through this section. Early reports suggest it will be among the most challenging parts of the track.

Fans have been catered for, with a new design of crash barrier in place which it is claimed means the run-off areas can be smaller, allowing grandstands to be located nearer the track. For those that can afford it, there's also a five-star hotel that actually straddles the track.

The race is a 50,000 sell-out.

The race starts at 5pm local time, meaning it is scheduled to begin in daylight but end in darkness, with the sun setting over the venue during the race.

The track looks fabulous

The track looks fabulous and it does make us thrilled. However, those who want relaxation more than thrills they should consider going for a nice cruise to Caribbean.
