Abu Dhabi Grand Prix

2016 Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix


The Yas Marina Circuit is awe-inspiring with hotels built around and over the race track and Marina, the complex is finished with the magnificent Ferrari World just next door. Track designer Herman Tilke designed the track to the best Formula One standards, with the marina and all the the glitz and glamour that goes with this incredible event it is comparable to Monaco or Singapore. As they say, location - location - location, and the Yas Marina is certainly a location, with entertainment throughout the Grand Prix and live concerts featuring performances by major international artists.

View from Yachts--the Paddock Club--Amber Lounge--Ferrari World Abu Dhabi


The circuit has the unique distinction of being the only twilight race on the F1 calendar and when the lights are turned on, Yas Marina becomes the largest lit permanent sports venue in the world. The aesthetic impact of a race which starts in sunshine and finishes under artificial light is stunning to spectators, but the flip side of that coin is the bulk of pressure that falls on tire strategists dealing with dropping track temperatures as the race progresses.

It is the final Grand Prix of the year and is often a world championship decider so the atmosphere is electric. Watch from a yacht or the Paddock Club, party in the Amber Lounge with the Grand Prix movers and shakers, visit the Ferrari World Abu Dhabi,you won`t be disappointed.

The Abu Dhabi Grand Prix has a little bit of everything for everyone, so this is one race weekend guaranteed to please and is an experience you should not miss. Fly Etihad Airways to Abu Dhabi, they are the sponsors of the race and the promise a flight of luxury the moment you board.

RACE OVERVIEW

Abu Dhabi Grand Prix
Abu Dhabi is the capital city of the United Arab Emirates who have enjoyed massive oil revenues since the 1950s. Knowing the oil will not last forever they wisely turned the sand into fabulous modern cities. They also needed tourists to enjoy their year round pleasant weather. So golf courses were built, along with stadiums, marinas, hotel accommodations and of course the Yas Marina Formula one racing track. Abu Dhabi`s sporting calendar is packed with some of the World`s most exciting and prestigious events and tournaments, all hosted in world-class facilities

Nearly all today`s top drivers have won on Yas Marina, so it is a track the best come to the top. For the teams it is the end of a tiring season so this race is a celebration and all that goes with final days. The race starts before twilight and runs through to darkness. This makes for a difficult and exciting race as the tires cool as the sun goes down and the drivers find the cars difficult to handle, this can make for an exciting finish.

There are many options as to where you watch the race from. Regular grandstands offer excellent views with big screen(S) to see the cars as they disappear out of sight. The Paddock Club offers spectacular hospitality as well as an experience to get an inside-look at F1.
