The Yas Marina hybrid circuit, located in Yas Island, is the brainchild of Hermann Tilke. The place is a hub to several 5-star hotels and runs by the side of the magnificent marina of the island and a striking 60-meter tall sun tower. The 5.554-kilometer long circuit stretches from under the Yas Viceroy Abu Dhabi Hotel.

Further, the circuit bridges the exit of the pit lane.

The roof for most of the F1 crew

Several F1 drivers and member stay at the Yas Viceroy Abu Dhabi Hotel. It is a 5-star hotel that further provides a short walk to the F1 paddock. So, if one wishes to meet the F1 stars, they might want to book a room there.

The international touch to the hotels and the place itself with the Middle East culture attracts a considerable number of tourists. Except for the F1 race, the place also offers Drag race and off-road driving center. The ones who want to test their driving skills and techniques can visit the state-of-the-art kart center.

The circuit provides ground for 60,000 pupils. However, due to the global pandemic, the entry rules are very strict and allow a limited number of spectators.

Subsequently, Yas Marina is a favorite track of the seven-time world champion, Lewis Hamilton. He has, with his spectacular efficiency, clinched five titles at the same track. He made a rather ravishing entry at the Yas Marina after testing negative, aiming for the last win of the season.

The island that is quiet, with little hubbub throughout the year, decks up with quite a hullabaloo during this time of the year. The Yas Marina is hosting the final race of the F1 season’s calendar, which might turn out to be quite a magnificent and grand event. It is a mandatory experience for every racer and a must-watch for F1 followers.
