The tyre preparation area and the kitchen building takes shape.
The man behind building Abu Dhabi’s racetrack for next year’s Formula One arrival says it will be ready in time.
Philippe Gurdjian, chief executive of the Abu Dhabi Motor Sport Management Company (ADMM), hit out at the whispers in motor racing that there may be delays on the development of the track on Yas Island.

The view from the Marina floor. The top speed of an F1 car around the Yas Island circuit is estimated at about 200mph.
The average speed of an F1 car will be 125mph.

Next year’s F1 debut race at Abu Dhabi is believed to be a race of 56 laps, making a total of 192 miles.

The West Grandstand at Yas Island is now a clearly visible structure as construction progresses well.

One of the tunnels which will carry vehicles under the circuit.
The track will be a one of a kind, and is speculated to have a hint of the world-famous Monaco race track. The length of the track will be about 3.6 miles.

Pictured here is the North Grandstand at Yas Island.
The track comprises 20 turns and will include the signature lengthy straight which leads into a speed killer hairpin bend.

The front of the North Grandstand. The construction site was a flat piece of land which is not a great base for an F1 track. So designers have created some man-made hills on the construction site so the race could have gravitational acceleration and deceleration.

MIRAGE

Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a persistent one. So get a few laughs and do the best you can. Don't have an ideal to work for. That's like riding towards the mirage of a lake.
