Things are looking up for a big crowd at F1's season finale next weekend, as Abu Dhabi enters Formula One with a race at the unique Yas Marina track.

Although the championships were decided in Brazil last weekend, it has emerged that occupancy of the on-site Yas Hotel will be 100 per cent, as the circuit prepares to host F1's first day/night race.

Aldar Hotels managing director Paul Bell said the track hotel, with part of the pit exit actually running underneath, is full.

"We are full in the hotel over the race weekend; there are no rooms available in the hotel," he said in an interview with Hotelier Middle East.

Bell explained that every room boasts a view of the circuit, and visitors with F1 passes - namely drivers, team personnel and media - will be able to access the paddock directly.
