Brazilian Formula 1 driver Bruno Senna has heaped praise on the Yas Marina Grand Prix Circuit in Abu Dhabi.

Those planning to invest in UAE property may be interested to learn that, according to the racing star, the track boasts state-of-the art facilities.

Speaking to Formula 1 news source Paddock Talk, Senna said the track is demanding and presents a tough challenge to the drivers and their teams.

"Some corners are crazy as the cars will pass very close to the wall, like in the Indycar series. This mix of characteristics is cool," he commented.

Continuing to applaud the circuit, Senna said the garages are "huge", adding the course is also home to a large VIP area and media centre capable of accommodating up to 600 journalists.
