    Abu Dhabi Grand Prix: The PUMA Perspective

    November 14, 2011

    It was exactly a year ago in Abu Dhabi that 2005/6 world champion Fernando Alonso lost out on becoming Formula 1’s youngest-ever triple champion. Having become the sport’s youngest champion with his first crown, he relieved Michael Schumacher of the ‘youngest double’ a year later. For a driver as competitive as Fernando, the triple is a logical next step.

    Let me confess something: I love being in Abu Dhabi for the grand prix, but have not as yet been able to put my finger on the reason. I mean, it’s great to have a place relatively close to Europe where we can race in warm weather in mid-November, but that alone is not the reason.

    Having visited India a few times on sponsor search missions as a team owner, I was really looking forward to returning here for the first Indian Grand Prix. During those visits I grew to love this place, and believe we can learn so much from the attitude of the people – many of them lead unbelievably hard lives, yet their eyes radiate a peace that is simply unique.

    This seems to be a week of congratulations: Since I last blogged from Suzuka, Sebastian Vettel and Red Bull Racing have secured a second consecutive world drivers’ championship, and equally significantly – certainly from my own perspective - is that PUMA has announced a new partnership with MERCEDES GP PETRONAS and Michael Schumacher.

    After 15 gruelling races in which he failed to finish lower than fourth, Sebastian Vettel and Red Bull Racing clinched the 2011 FIA World Championship for Drivers on Sunday in Japan. The 24-year-old German placed third – having needed just one point – in the thrilling 53-lap race at the classic Suzuka circuit to put the title beyond reach of his only remaining challenger Jenson Button, who took his McLaren to a third 2011 race victory.

    It really is wonderful to be back in Japan. I just love the place, and of course feel a strong connection to the country through having managed many drivers who raced here, plus I used Yokohama tyres in my Formula 3 team, and in Formula 1 we were successful with Bridgestone rubber.
