Weird Pit Exit

This years Formula 1 championship ends in just over two weeks at the new Yas Marina Circuit in Abu Dhabi. As it's a new track no one knows exactly how the cars will perform around it but this video of Bruno Senna driving a two seater F1 car around it should give us some idea.

That has to be the longest straight in F1 and I assume the KERS cars will have fun, but isn't that the weirdest pit exit ever? Who though putting a dark tunnel in the pit lane was a good idea? Maybe it will work just fine but I can envision an accident there completely closing the pit lane and needing the race to be red flagged so that everyone doesn't run out of fuel and grip.

I'm amazed Senna had any grip at all going round so slowly. As for the pit exit I bet it will be illuminated. Have you noticed how much brighter the lights in the Monaco tunnel have got over the years. In the 'good old days' it was really scary coming out of the tunnel but nowadays you hardly notice it.
