This week our F1 team is in Abu Dhabi for the fifth round of the F1 H2O World Championship. Both team and equipment are ready for Wednesday's free practice. After a season of different technical issues, F1 driver Marit is eager to prove the competitiveness of her Baba boat.
Abu Dhabi is considered as the capital of F1 H2O Racing. This year's race marks the 10th anniversary of Marit as a F1 driver. - This is one of my absolute favourite racecourses. The first time I raced here was back in 2002 in F2 and it really feels great to be back again, says Marit.
Twenty one drivers from 13 countries will line-up in Abu Dhabi with two newcomers making their UIM F1H2O tour debuts. Erik Edin gets his opportunity alongside Stark and Jonas Andersson for Team Sweden with Matthew Palfreyman teaming up alongside Marit and Mike Szymura at Emirates Racing.
The first free practice session takes place at 1500hrs on Wednesday with a second session on Thursday morning at 1015hrs and followed by BRM Official Qualifying at 1530hrs.
A final practice session is run on Friday morning at 1015hrs with the UIM F1H2O Grand Prix of Abu Dhabi at 1530hrs.
