Click above for high-res gallery of the Abu Dhabi F1 track

The last round of the Formula One Grand Prix has in recent years been held in Brazil. Next year's provisional calendar makes Brazil the penultimate round, and puts the final race in Abu Dhabi at the country's brand new track. The F1 circus runners got a chance to see the track where next year's championship will be decided (cross fingers), and as one might expect from something out of the Middle East, it's got everything and then some.

Designed by the man who created the Bahrain, Sepang and Valencia tracks, the Abu Dhabi circuit gets a course that runs through a hotel, a pit lane that runs under the track, and boasts 20 turns. Around the track will also be Ferrari World, the Yas Island Marina, a water park and sports facilities. All of that is fantastic, but we want the one thing we haven't heard about yet and that we didn't get from the new tracks in Valencia and Singapore: passing. Check out the galley of high-res images below and see if you think that enormous back straight will do the trick.
