Sebastian Vettel: “The track in Abu Dhabi is special – this will be our third grand prix there. The race starts at dusk and finishes at night, which means we have to drive with special helmet visors because of the different light conditions. The other factor is that we drive anti-clockwise. The track’s a bit like Singapore from the speed, but the asphalt is smoother. There are two special features – one is the passage under the Yas hotel, where else can you actually drive under your room! The second is the pit lane exit, which is also special. It’s partly underground and it feels like you’re coming out of an underground parking garage when you drive through it.”
Mark Webber: “I’m really looking forward to getting to abu dhabi. although it’s not one of the most challenging venues of the season, with every real corner being second and third gear, it’s always a great spectacle. it’s a twilight race, so it looks amazing on TV. It’s another great opportunity for the team to get a very good result as the season comes to a close. The sun is always shining and the conditions are always beautiful, so that’s something to look forward to.”
