The end is finally here, championships are long over and the only thing left to fight for at the Abu Dhabi GP is reputation and pride.
The Yas Marina Circuit is 5.554km long with a 55 lap race, a total distance of 305.470km, and the fourth shortest race on the calendar. Only one race in the six at the Abu Dhabi GP has been won from pole, Vettel in 2010, and only one has been won outside of the front row, Raikkonen in 2012 from fourth. The remaining four races have all been won from second position.
Sebastian Vettel and Red Bull are the most successful driver and team at the Abu Dhabi GP so far with three wins, but Lewis Hamilton could match that this weekend if he wins the race. The lap record also goes to Vettel, a time of 1:40.279 and an average speed of 199kph or 124mph.
The Silly Stats
To completely cover the track 5cm deep in sand you would need 485,975,000,000 individual grains of sand.
If you were to cover the Yas Marina track with 1kg gold bars you would need 24,298,750, costing a total of £567,014,247,100, sadly still not enough to build the Death Star.
