Abu Dhabi, the richest city in the world, scored a major coup in snaring the Grand Prix to its city, scheduled this year (2009) for 1 November.

Etihad Airways will be wanting to capture something of the F1 spirit—success, speed, sexiness—without too many blowouts, unscheduled pit stops and smashes.
