McLaren in Abu Dhabi in Pictures

Thanks to the fantastic service offered by PicApp, we can now bring you a decent number of good photos from Grand Prix races, starting with the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix from last weekend.

However, before we get to those, McLaren has had an F1 car in Abu Dhabi before, as this photo of Fernando Alonso from the 2007 F1 Festival shows:

That’s the pick of the bunch – there are far more photos from the practice and qualifying sessions, maybe because of Lewis retiring Heikki not being in a great deal of action during the race. Still, there’s some fantastic photos and while the race may not have been very interesting, it’s a visually stunning racetrack and location.
