ANOTHER OPTION FOR TESTING: F1 pre-season testing could move to the Gulf as several circuits there, including Abu Dhabi, have shown interest in hosting. Image: AFP

DOHA, Qatar - Abu Dhabi is the latest Gulf circuit to express interest in hosting Formula 1 pre-season testing to avoid disruptions caused by cold and wet weather in Spain.

Richard Cregan, chief executive officer of Yas Marina Circuit, told The Associated Press on Wednesday he had been approached by F1 boss Bernie Ecclestone's Formula One Management company about the circuit's availability.

STABLE WEATHER

Cregan said he was "very interested" in hosting F1 testing but that it was a decision for the teams and FOM to hash out.

Abu Dhabi joins Bahrain and possibly Qatar in wanting to host pre-season testing. While teams would be attracted by the stable weather, they would face logistical challenges since most of their facilities are in Europe.
