Sebastian Vettel: “It’s a bit like Disneyland”

1 Mins read

Sebastian Vettel feels like the Yas Marina Circuit, the venue for the season finale of the 2015 Formula 1 season, is already a classic place to visit, with the Scuderia Ferrari driver aiming to end the season on a high.

The German knows he will finish third in the Drivers’ Championship following Nico Rosberg’s two consecutive race victories in Mexico and Brazil, but says that the Abu Dhabi track is more fun now with the reduced downforce than it was in the early years at the venue.

“I’ve liked the Abu Dhabi track since the beginning, it’s a nice place and even though we haven’t had so many races here, it already feels like a classic place to go,” said Vettel.

“I think people here put a lot of efforts in trying to make us comfortable. It’s a bit like Disneyland, in terms of facilities and so on; it couldn’t be any better.

“I think the track is great, there are a lot of different types of corners, unfortunately not so many high speed corners, but for the rest you have everything you need and racing at night is always something special.

“Compared to the opening year, when there was more downforce in the car, now it’s a bit more fun, especially in the last sector you have to make sure to find the rhythm, otherwise you can drop your lap time.”
