The full-size replica F1 car is modeled after the team’s racing car driven by Michael Schumacher and Nico Rosberg this season.
During the 2012 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, guests and visitors to the hotel can expect to get up-close and personal with the incredible racing machine and view all the intricate engineering details and the confined cockpit that the athletic drivers endure for hours at a time. Further driving F1 buzz at the hotel, the lobby will also display three cabinets with memorabilia of the drivers. Throughout the event, the hotel will feature live coverage of race day at its popular sports restaurant, The Retreat.
