I've heard that a lot of fans have complained that the pit lane exit isn't clever enough so organisers intend to add "The Hot Wheels loop". This will see cars exit the pits, drop down a narrow pit lane exit road, curve under the track and then increase speed into a 360 up and over loop before rejoining the track at the inside of turn 2.
Is it just me, or have Yas Marina put the banked corner in the wrong place - surely the banked corner should run into the long straight, rather than being at the end of the long straight?
As far as I can see, we're going to end up with long DRS zone into a (potentially very) fast banked corner - drivers will have to touch the brakes, but there won't be much of an outbraking opportunity at the end of that straight.
The banking could help cars follow each other into the final section of the lap, but the main overtaking opportunity will be at the sharp right-hander before the hotel.
If you were to run the circuit clockwise, rather than anti-clockwise, the design of the circuit then begins to make a lot more sense!
