“Kazakhstan President Nursultan Nazarbayev took part in the opening of the final of a Formula-1 stage, Abu-Dhabi Grand Prix, under invitation of His Highness General Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces,” the press-service writes.

Formula-1 is the highest class of single-seater auto racing world championship. It includes several stages with Grand Prix status. The winner is defined at the end of the year. Formula-1 is a competition of pilots and teams. Pilots compete for the world champion title, while teams race for the Constructors Cup.

Formula One cars are among the fastest circuit-racing cars in the world, owing to very high cornering speeds achieved through the generation of large amounts of aerodynamic downforce. Formula One cars race at speeds of up to 350 km/h (220 mph) with engines limited in performance to a maximum of 18,000 revolutions per minute (RPM). The cars are capable of lateral acceleration in excess of 5 g in corners. The performance of the cars is very dependent on electronics – although traction control and other driving aids have been banned since 2008 – and on aerodynamics, suspension and tyres.
