Yas Marina Circuit

Yas Marina Circuit is owned by the Executive Affairs Authority of the government of Abu Dhabi and operated by Abu Dhabi Motorsports Management. It employs about 180 full-time staff, supported by up to 200 part-time workers and volunteers at peak times.

Right next door is the iconic Yas Hotel, a luxury marina, yacht club, six other hotels, the Yas Island golf links and the Ferrari World indoor theme park, set to open in late 2010. The international airport is close by and only 25 minutes away is the thriving city of Abu Dhabi, the capital of the UAE, largest of the seven Emirates and one of the fastest-growing tourism destinations in the world.

Key facts and figures 

The Formula 1™ track is 5.55 km long and can be split into two smaller tracks of 3.1 km and 2.4 km, which can operate simultaneously where desired. 

Approximately 50,000 spectators can view the action on the circuit from the comfort of permanent, covered grandstands and air-conditioned VIP facilities. Yas Marina Circuit is the only motorsports venue in the world where all the grandstands are covered.

Commemorating this great landmark, Emirates Post has issued a set of stamp in two denominations.
