2014 Abu Dhabi F1 Grand Prix Winner Shares His Trip With Us

Our 2014 Abu Dhabi F1 Grand Prix competition winner, Mr. G. Cront and his wife have returned from taking in all the glitz and action at the Abu Dhabi F1 Grand Prix a few days ago.

Formula1 fans were once again treated to a spectacular race day during the season’s final race in Abu Dhabi. Lewis Hamilton claimed his second world title after winning his eleventh race of the season. Even though Nico Rosberg started on pole he was overtaken by Hamilton before the first turn. The German then unfortunately suffered a series of mechanical problems and ended up 14th.

Felipe Massa took second and Valtteri Bottas third. It was Lewis Hamilton though that triumphed and sprayed the non-alcoholic fizz across the podium. Hamilton was lost for words while being interviewed and thanked his fans, his family and team for all their hard work and continued support.

PlayHugeLottos players will remember that we once again ran our very successful Abu Dhabi F1 Grand Prix competition a while back, where the winner would win a VIP trip to the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

The luxury package comprised of the following:

VIP package for the winner of the F1 Abu Dhabi:
- Return airfare.

- 4 nights’ accommodation at the Rotana Yas Island with breakfast.

- Accommodation just minutes away from the Yas Links Golf Club, Ferrari World Abu Dhabi, Yas Waterworld and Yas Beach which is just 40 minutes from Dubai.

- Entrance tickets to Ferrari World for a visit over the weekend.

- Viewing and Hospitality from F1 paddock Club Suites for Saturday and Sunday including lunch and an open bar including Champagne.

- Tickets to the after race concerts (Thursday - Sunday)

- Throughout the race weekend staff pampered to Mr Cront’s wishes.

The modern and superbly flawless Yas Marina Circuit in Abu Dhabi combined with twenty F1 engines reverberating on straights then screaming brakes and glowing tires aggressively gripping tar around corners are just some of the mind-blowing sensations that Formula 1 fans crave.

The controversial double points initiated in the last race of the season ensured that Formula 1 fans would have their eyes peeled. The reason for the double points was to maximise focus on the championship until the end of the campaign.  Not surprising F1 fans were furious.  Luckily though, it was decided that the “Abu Double” will be the first and the last.

The British driver for Mercedes, Lewis Hamilton won the F1 Grand Prix in Abu Dhabi in the last stage of the season and took the world championship title for the second time. Hamilton said that this second title was way sweeter than the first as he’s been around for longer and knows what it takes to take the title. After a long hard season going head to head with his team mate Nico Rosberg, the end result for Lewis and F1 fans could not have ended more perfectly. 

Both the Williams drivers, Massa and Bottas finished on the podium and Daniel Ricciardo, managed to finish the race in 4th place. Nico Rosberg ended up in 14th place due to faulty electrical part of his race car.

Paul Hembery, Pirelli motorsport director said, “It’s always a pleasure to return to Abu Dhabi and this year’s event will be even more significant than usual, with the drivers’ championship being decided and double points available. The strategy is normally greatly affected by the unusual track evolution, due to the falling temperatures caused by the late afternoon start. This was the case in Bahrain as well, which turned out to be one of the most exciting and unpredictable races of the season earlier this year. As a result, the free practice sessions will be particularly crucial, as the teams try to gather as much information as possible about how the car will perform on both compounds: not just with different fuel loads, but also with different track temperatures. As so many points are on offer, there is a big opportunity for teams that have less to lose to try an unexpected strategy, in order to make some potentially significant gains.”

But there was another Formula 1 winner, who encapsulated the Formula 1 spirit, our Abu Dhabi F1 Grand Prix 2014 winner, Mr G. Cront from Romania.

Mr Cront told us that his VIP trip to the Abu Dhabi F1 Grand Prix was a one of the most fantastic experiences that he has ever had and that he felt extremely privileged to witness everything that took place at the Grand Prix, from the race qualifications, the actual race day, the various concerts to visiting Ferrari World.

This is what Mr Cront had to say after his return from the F1 race in Dubai.

"I would like to sincerely thank PlayHugeLottos.com, without whom I would not have experienced all that I had.  I don’t have the words to describe the joy that my wife Violeta and I experienced due to this unique opportunity.

I would like to add that I am very grateful for the opportunity to have had the most exciting trip of my life and it was definitely a dream come true.

It's really hard to describe being at the Grand Prix. It’s something that every Formula 1 fan should experience at least once in their life. Abu Dhabi is exquisite and it was amazing to be amongst the world’s best.

The start of the race of mind-blowing and the tension in the paddock was absolutely thrilling. It was an absolute dream come true to see my favourite driver race right in front of me and reach speeds up to 318km/h and in less than two minutes per lap. The smell of gasoline and hearing that incredible noise was more than I could have ever asked for.

As if the race wasn’t incredible enough, we also had the opportunity to watch music concerts which ended late in the evening and they too were brilliant. 

The level of VIP treatment we received made me feel like an Arab Sheikh. I’m so happy that I participated in the 2014 Abu Dhabi F1 Grand Prix at PlayHugeLottos.com and actually won this magnificent prize. It was one of my most memorable experiences ever.

I would once again like to thank everyone for this privilege and I wish you everything of the best!
