Abu Dhabi postpones track changes

The Abu Dhabi Grand Prix organisers will wait until after this year's race before deciding whether to adjust the Yas Marina circuit's layout to encourage more overtaking. The track was criticised following last season's processional title decider, in which championship hopeful Fernando Alonso became stuck behind Vitaly Petrov's slower Renault for the majority of the race and was unable to prevent Sebastian Vettel snatching the crown. Yas Marina circuit bosses had looked into options for modifying the track to encourage more overtaking, but with Formula 1's 2011 rules package having triggered significantly more exciting racing at almost every event so far this year, track chief executive Richard Cregan suspects the remodelling might no longer be required
