Jude Law races around Yas Marina Circuit
British actor Jude Law, the heart-throb star of countless Hollywood hits, swapped red carpets for chequered flags on a recent trip to Abu Dhabi’s Yas Marina Circuit - the futuristic home of the emirate’s annual Formula 1™ Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.
With stunned fans snapping the Cold Mountain, The Talented Mr. Ripley, Road to Perdition and Sherlock Holmes star on their mobile phones, fearless Law buckled into an open-cockpit Yas Supersport SST – a mini version of Le Mans endurance vehicles - for thrill-a-minute ‘Hot Laps’ around the 5.5km track.
“Jude was bowled over by the entire experience – he was a natural racer,” said a Yas Marina Circuit insider. “He even said he was considering returning to Abu Dhabi for the Grand Prix in November.”
