Ecclestone says Abu Dhabi circuit best ever

10:53 am on 30 October 2009

Formula One boss Bernie Ecclestone has hailed Abu Dhabi's floodlit new circuit as the best he's ever seen.

The Yas Marina circuit, built at an estimated cost of 1.4 billion dollars, is part of a $55 billion development of the emirate's Yas Island, which also includes a Ferrari World theme park.

The drivers have been equally impressed, last year's world champion describing the facilities as "mind-blowing" for this weekend's final round of the world championship.
