In the 29th season of Formula 1 Powerboat racing, and the penultimate race of the year in Abu Dhabi, reigning champion Alex Carella successfully defended his 2011 drivers’ title, the Italian becoming a double world champion for the Qatar Team.

It was an exciting hour watching the powerboats race on the 2.5 km circuit off the Corniche in Abu Dhabi especially since the event coincided with the 41st National Day celebrations of the UAE. The breakwater was a sea of red, green, white and black, as residents expressed their love for the country sporting national colors and waving UAE flags, in support of Team Abu Dhabi. Thani Al Qamzi who at one time lifted up the hopes of the Abu Dhabi fans, lost to Carella by just 2.84 seconds.

An exciting close to the event was the jet-ski performance that certainly got everyone off their seats!
