Formula 1 - Etihad Airways Grand Prix Weekend

Last weekend was the Formula 1 race in Abu Dhabi. Every night, F1 ticket holders get access to great concerts at the adjacent Yas Arena. This year it was Britney Spears (Friday), Incubus and The Cult (Saturday) and Paul McCartney (Sunday). Our friends Steven and Sally once again hooked us up with concert upgrades to the Fan Pit. Sir Paul was definitely the favorite and can still rock a great show.

Brian's Father was in Abu Dhabi for a visit and it was his first F1 race too. Lewis Hamilton with McClaren-Mercedes won the race after Sebastian Vettel with Red Bull Racing and the 2011 F1 champion had a tire blow out in the first lap. Unbelievable experience. Next year we hope that Gregg and Dana Laiben can join us for race weekend (hint hint).
