ABU DHABI: The final stop of Formula 1 World Championship at Abu Dhabi has been a memorable event for Red Bull racing champions. Before the start of the final round of F1 race championship, Red Bull champion Prince Abdulaziz Bin Turki Al-Faisal was crowned on the podium as the champion of the second round of Porsche Middle East Cup which was held as part of the side activities of the final round of F1 World Championship that witnessed crowning Red Bull Racing team champion Sebastian Vettel of Germany as world champion.
The win of Red Bull champion Prince Abdulaziz Bin Turki was a kind of rehabilitation after he had come second after Bahraini driver Sheikh Salman Bin Rashid Al-Khalifa in the first round held on the same circuit. Abdulaziz Al-Faisal managed to lead all the other drivers, in particular his Bahraini competitor, from the start and expanded the time gap in each turn of the race between him and his closest rival until he reached the end of the race grabbing his first deserved win this year and posting a significant time difference of (7.163 sec) ahead of Salman Bin Rashid Al-Khalifa.
This remarkable achievement comes as his first step of defending his Porsche Middle East Cup champion title which he grabbed in the last season when he won nine out of total 12 races.
The Porsche Middle East Cup championship will move to its second stop at Manama on Dec. 2 and 3 and Riyadh on Dec. 19 and Feb. 20 and then back again to Manama on Feb. 18 and 19, prior to the pre-final stage but its timing and location haven’t been decided yet. Then the championship will be concluded where it had started in Abu Dhabi on April 8-10.
