The Abu Dhabi grand prix takes place at the Yas Marina this weekend.

Formula One legend Michael Schumacher is hoping that he will be able to enjoy the final three races of his illustrious career and is particularly looking forward to getting behind the wheel at the Yas Marina complex in Abu Dhabi.

The Mercedes driver recently announced that he would be retiring at the end of this F1 season and endured a torrid time in India last week.

Yet the Abu Dhabi race is one of Schumacher’s favourites on the calendar and he believes it is the perfect place to bounce back.

He told the Sun: “The facilities are state of the art, very modern and very attractive.

“The timing of the race makes it even more appealing. It’s something quite special and uniquely fun to race from day into night.”

Fans still have time to book flights to Abu Dhabi and see if the seven-time World Champion can recapture his glory days when the lights go out for Sunday’s (November 4th) race.
