Have to say that I did not really follow the F1 this season but as I was invited by my company to Abu Dhabi for the last race I finally got my first Formula 1 live experience. Probably not the worst race to start with.
We had quite a nice view from this little thing here (I am somehow too stupid to link with thumbnails... therefore only links...) ibb.co/ncO3Hw ibb.co/ce5xSw
I also had quite a good view after sunset, looking at the other yachts in the harbor: ibb.co/d5vxSw
Oh yeah, and some guys arrived in quite some nice cars: ibb.co/kAOCub
Also took some video footage. Here a small video of the airshow before the race. Actually, this was the complete airshow before the race but before the qualifying started there was an amazing 15 minutes or so airshow.
My view on the first lap. If you look closely, there is some kind of overtake or at least battle between a Red Bull and a Ferrari. In fact, this was the only overtake I saw during the complete race, apart from blue flags, lol:
Lap of Honor, finally seeing some cars driving closely together (at around 1min) and Fireworks plus Arabic music in the background that will make your ears bleed
Race is over. May I take you for a short walk around the harbor showcasing a $ 500 million spending spree?
Now that we are done with the after party, let's move on to the Pink concert. Just can't decide which of my cars I should take. Can someone help me to decide?
Well, I think, I will go with the Nero
And just as a small comparison, also some footage from teh Formula 2 race. Man, those cars were insanely loud! (and it is not just because I am standing closer to the track):
Was quite an amazing experience for an average guy like me to see how the rich and superrich people experience events like this. One of those things that you probably only get to do once in your lifetime.
Going to a F1 race live is one of the better experiences I ever had. Too bad it was kinda boring a race you attented, but cool anyways you got to go there. Also I much more prefer the calm and peacefull Belgian countryside over the party boats, but hope you had great time

I agree though, people have to experience at least one race live. I've got tickets for Melbourne next year, at turns 9 and 10. Hopefully I will be able to see the Haas drivers being complete cunts to other drivers and Kimi Raikonnen warming the seat at Ferrari in the flesh!
