F1 has no business in Abu Dhabi either!!
I disagree completely. Abu Dhabi is – and has been for some time – one of the world’s fastest-growing economies. It probably won’t be long before it is considered a major world city, like London, New York and Tokyo, if it isn’t already. I don’t think Formula 1 can afford to overlook the Middle East at all.
The circuit the by far the worst of the bad ones designed in the recent era
That’s not a reason for Formula 1 to have avoided the city in the first place.
with Bahrain has no place on the F1 Calender!!
But the UAE is not in the grip of social upheaval and fighting between the government and civilians, so the comparison is moot.
