Medics happy after uneventful F1 weekend

F1 driver exits his car after an incident

Medics at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix were thankful for a "boring race" at the season closing F1. Many professionals would be glad for a quiet day, but for the team of doctors, nurses and safety crew at the Yas Marina Circuit, they're more than happy when it's a slow day at the office and everyone is safe. Speaking to medics and drivers, ARN's Ric Boullemier went behind the scenes to find out what it takes to keep the race on track.


Mercedes driver Nico Rosberg won the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix ahead of teammate and World Champion Lewis Hamilton. Thankfully, there were no major incidents during the race, and Chief Medical Officer Dr Sean Petherbridge also paid tribute to National Ambulances Company who provided paramedics, Emergency Medical Technicians and fully stocked trackside ambulance that are ready to deal with any trauma.
