World famous celebrity chef and F1 legend Mark Webber at Yas Marina Circuit for Abu Dhabi Grand Prix weekend to cook up a storm for guests enjoying corporate hospitality 

One of the world’s most highly regarded and celebrated chefs has been wowing Yas Marina Circuit’s corporate guests this weekend, presenting a live cooking demonstration with a little help from former F1 legend Mark Webber.

Jean-Christophe Novelli, the French-born celebrity chef who is famous for launching his Four Season’s chain of restaurants in London, has designed the menu for this year’s hospitality cuisine at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, offering guests mouth-watering food options as they watch the scintillating action on the track.

Novelli, a 5 out of 5, AA Rosette and multi-Michelin Star award-winning chef said: “This is such an incredible weekend to a part of. To be cooking for guests at Yas Marina Circuit and doing what I love at the heart of the world’s biggest sporting occasion this weekend is a thrill.”

"To have a legend such as Mark Webber alongside me has been wonderful too, he has been a big help in the kitchen with me today!"

The celebrity chef was joined by Mark Webber, who is an ambassador for Yas Marina Circuit’s Marsa corporate hospitality packages, and has been busy meeting and greeting guests in the Marsa suites.


Webber added: “Yas Marina Circuit is one of the stand out F1 races on the calendar. Not just the on-track action but everything you get to do off the track too.


Being with Chef Novelli today has been brilliant… I’m not sure my cooking skills match up to his, but I helped where I could! And it was great to learn from the best.”
