Lewis Hamilton says the characteristics of the Yas Marina circuit should suit his car.

The McLaren driver said: “I think we?ve got every reason to be confident for Abu Dhabi.

“This circuit should really suit the characteristics of our car ?ǣ we should be able to capitalise on the layout to maximise the benefit of DRS and KERS, both of which are very strong on our car.”

Hamilton scored his last victory in the German Grand Prix in July.

Team mate Jenson Button expects to see more overtaking in the third Abu Dhabi Grand Prix: “It?s usually been quite difficult to overtake here, especially last year, but I think that DRS will change all that.

“The back straight is one of the longest in Formula 1 so I expect to see a lot of action there. It would be great to see the new rules turn this circuit into a place where overtaking is more common and more exciting.”
