Räikkönen calls in at Ferrari World Abu Dhabi ahead of Formula 1 Grand Prix

Scuderia Ferrari driver Kimi Räikkönen geared up ahead of the much-awaited race weekend to experience Ferrari World Abu Dhabi’s latest addition and most heart-pounding rollercoaster, Turbo Track.

Räikkönen is in Abu Dhabi ahead of the Formula 1 Grand Prix, which takes place this weekend.

He sky rocketed from inside the park through the glass funnel, propelling vertically through the iconic red roof to the highest point on Yas Island at 64 metres, before experiencing hair-raising zero gravity as he plummeted vertically back down.

Enjoying the adrenaline feeling of the free-fall, Räikkönen casually cheered in his ice-cool attitude for a second go to the ride, this time being seated backwards.

Ferrari World Abu Dhabi, the world’s first Ferrari-branded theme park, opened its doors to fans in 2010.

The Park celebrates the spirit of the legendary marque, and is home to numerous thrill rides, family-friendly attractions, state-of-the-art simulators, spectacular live shows, as well as popular seasonal events and festivities that bring together extraordinary performances from around the globe.

It is considered the Middle East’s Leading Theme Park by the World Travel Awards.
