Abu Dhabi wants the race to always finish the seasonNovember 21, 2018
The organizers of the Grand Prix of Abu Dhabi expect that the final race of the season will take place with a sell-out, although the fate of both titles has already been decided. The executive director of the Al Tarek Al Ameri racing circuit is pleased that this race finishes the season and hopes that it will remain so in the future.
Al Tarek Al Ameri: “It’s great that the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix finishes the season. The end of November is great for us, because at this time many people come to us to relax and enjoy what Abu Dhabi has to offer. Even if the fate of the title is solved, it will not spoil us the weekend, we know this from previous experience. In addition, we are waiting for an interesting struggle, because the command tactics are no longer used, the pilots can do everything for the sake of victory, and we will get real races.
In my opinion, the Grand Prix of Abu Dhabi is the culmination of the sports calendar. This is an international event, and for three days the attention of the whole world has been riveted on it. Great to hold the final race of the season in Abu Dhabi, because this is a great place for a holiday.
We have a close relationship with Liberty Media. We try to constantly develop our project and discuss different ideas about what can be changed to improve everything. We hope that our Grand Prix has a great future. We always define ourselves as a modern Formula One Grand Prix. ”
This year, for the first time, a 500-seat stand for Max Verstappen fans will appear in Abu Dhabi, and a Dutch DJ will play behind it.
“This idea came by itself,” – said Al Almery. – We noticed sales growth, and when our team conducted an economic analysis after last year’s race, she found out what caused such an interest, and found Verstappen’s fan club. In the end, we decided to support him. Let’s see what happens. “
