The number of slow and medium-speed corners at Yas Marina means it’s quite a technical racetrack. To be quick you have to be very precise and you mustn’t overdrive the car. This will be another hard race for the team, but we’ll aim to end the year in the best possible way.
The Abu Dhabi Grand Prix captures all the glamour and occasion of F1, with a circuit that’s part classic speed layout, part street circuit style. Drivers cannot let their attention slip for a millisecond thanks to the twilight conditions – and as the only race held at this time of day, it’s a fitting end to a thrilling year of racing.
Thank you to the whole team, who have been through so many ups and downs over the last 19 races. To them, and everyone holding the fort in both Woking and Sakura, I would like to say a huge well done. We couldn’t have kept improving and fighting this season without every single one of you."
