Luca di Montezemolo has given the thumbs-up to the site of next year's formula one season finale.

On a visit to Abu Dhabi, the Ferrari president - recently highly critical of this year's new venues in Singapore and Valencia - was all praise for the circuit currently under construction on the marina at Yas Island.

"I am very content," the Italian is quoted as saying by La Gazzetta dello Sport.

"From what I can see so far, it looks outstanding and also completely unique, fortunately much more interesting than the other new circuits in Valencia and Singapore," Montezemolo added.

The Yas Marina Circuit, to uniquely feature underground sections to the pit entry, is being constructed by the Abu Dhabi-based Aldar Properties, who are also building the official Ferrari World theme park on Yas Island.

Moreover, Ferrari is significantly backed by Etihad Airways, the national airline of the United Arab Emirates.
