Tweaking the Yas Marina Circuit
A well overdue makeover for the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix
Hermann Tilke was the mastermind behind what is a dull Yas Marina Circuit layout. Whilst the circuit facilities are world class, it’s the racing spectacle that us Formula 1 fans care about. What springs to mind first when I think of the circuit’s history? The underground pit-exit, the championship battles that have gone down to the wire, Kimi Raikkonen’s famous description of the circuit and of course, Fernando Alonso’s infamous inability to pass Vitaly Petrov. DRS has been a blessing for the circuit, but what if we could improve the layout to further compliment the on track action?
