Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, October 05, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- The teams and drivers will be going head to head on Sunday 13th November for the 2011 Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. The race returns to the Yas Marina Circuit for the third consecutive year and the circuit is a favourite with many drivers due to its fast pace and ample opportunities for overtaking.
Practice sessions will run on Friday 11th and Saturday 12th November before the final qualifying at 17:00 on the Saturday. Sebastian Vettel will be looking for another pole position from qualifying to cement his lead in the Drivers Championship and add more points for team RBR-Renault.
Vettel is likely to see strong competition from other leading drivers including Fernando Alonso, Jenson Button and Mark Webber who are all looking to catch the German on points.
Lek Boonlert, marketing head at DirectRooms.com commented: “The race starts at 17:00 on Sunday and more than 20,000 people are expected to head to the UAE to watch the event. With so many F1 fans coming to the city finding a room at a hotel Abu Dhabi City Centre
has available is going to become more difficult as the race gets closer. All visitors are being reminded that they should try to book their accommodation as early as they can and search for availability online.”
