The Yas Marina should not be confused with the Marina Yas, a limited edition Morris from the late 1970s which featured vinyl seats and a velour roof.

Abu Dhabi is so arid that for the entire weekend Lotus boss Eric Boullier must be regularly basted with a thin, garlicky butter or he will dry out.

The Abu Dhabi track is very kind to tyres. Last year it bought them a cheap gold necklace and showed them around the spice quarter.

Yas Marina’s distinctive bright blue run-off areas were an accident that occurred because the Arabic word for ‘run-off area’ is very similar to the Arabic word for ‘sodding horrible florescent shit’.

Abu Dhabi does not permit Champagne on the podium. As a result, Kimi Raikkonen has described his 2012 victory there as ‘pointless’.
