If You Win A Race In A Strict Arab Country You Get This Instead Of ChampagneS

Last weekend, the Formula One circus hit Abu Dhabi as part of the yearly Middle Eastern swing. As is traditional at the end of an F1 race, you get to drink delicious, delicious champagne.

But in an Arab nation, there is no alcohol allowed. So what do you drink then? Some sort of of rosewater.

It's non-alcoholic, but it's still carbonated, so the top three can spray champagne all over each other. It just doesn't taste like Champagne, which Fernando Alonso found out the hard way.

He reportedly said "Mmmmmmm....ohhhhhhhhhmannnnn."
