Grand Prix of Brazil –  June 1-2




Recovering Ahmed Al-Hameli travels to Brazil with Team Abu Dhabi

Mohammed Al-Mehairbi set to represent Team Abu Dhabi in UIM F-4S series



Team Abu Dhabi is in South America making its final preparations for this weekend’s Grand Prix of Brazil, the opening round of the 2013 UIM F1 H20 World Championship, on Lake Paranoá in Brasilia, the country’s federal capital. The first ever F1 H20 race to be staged in South America takes place on Sunday (June 2nd).


Thani Al-Qamzi and Rashed Al-Tayer will represent Team Abu Dhabi in the first of seven races this season and Ahmed Al-Hameli – who was forced to miss the end of last season and potentially lost out on a maiden world title through serious illness - has travelled with the team.


Al-Hameli is still recuperating from a major health scare and has now received his Super Licence and may well test a boat during the course of the week. A decision will then be made as to whether the Emirati is fit and competitive enough to enter Sunday’s race.


Team Abu Dhabi won last year’s UIM F1 Teams’ World Championship, courtesy of the scorching pace shown by Al-Hameli at the first three rounds of the series and the consistent pace of Grand Prix of Sharjah winner Al-Qamzi, which saw him finish third in the Drivers’ Championship behind Qatar’s Alex Carella and Frenchman Phillipe Chiappe.


“It has been such an uplifting experience to watch Ahmed fight through his struggle that dates back to August of last year,” said Team Abu Dhabi’s team manager Scott Gillman. “Ahmed has given us all a lesson in courage and fortitude by showing us what can be accomplished if the mind and the body are willing.”


Team Abu Dhabi runs under the auspices of the Abu Dhabi International Marine Sports Club (ADIMSC) with support from the Abu Dhabi Tourism Authority (ADTA). Salem Al-Romaithi acts as the team head and works alongside team manager Scott Gillman, with the team running under the patronage of His Highness Dr. Sheikh Sultan Bin Khalifa Al Nahyan. Etihad Airways is the official carrier for Team Abu Dhabi.



Al-Qamzi will be looking to make a solid points-scoring start to his 2013 campaign as he bids to wrest the World and Pole Position titles from the clutches of the Qatar Team’s Alex Carella.


The highlight of his campaign last season was winning in Sharjah, but the Emirati took up the mantle of the team’s leading driver well in Al-Hameli’s absence and scored two second places towards the end of the year in Liuzhou and Abu Dhabi.


Rashed Al-Tayer has made the transition from Class 1 racing to join Team Abu Dhabi’s F1 H20 team and is relishing his chance to target a podium finish this weekend. The likes of Carella, Finland’s Sami Selio, Chiappe and Shaun Torrente are the likely main rivals in Brasilia.




Technical scrutineering of the boats and equipment takes place on Friday, May 31st and Team Abu Dhabi will take to the water for the first time at 16.15hrs (UAE time) on Saturday afternoon for the first one-hour practice session.


Mohammed Al-Mehairbi is representing the team in the UIM F-4S Championship and his campaign begins with practice, time trials and the first of his two races at 21.30hrs (UAE time). Team Abu Dhabi’s qualifying session starts at 22.00hrs (UAE time).


Further practice, time trails and the second F-4S race start proceedings on Sunday, June 2nd and the first ever Grand Prix of Brazil fires into life at 11.00hrs local time (18.00hrs UAE time).
