Don’t forget about the real reason for all the activities, concerts, brunches and parties – the actual F1 race.
The race at Yas Marina Circuit established itself as the finale of the season and is now in its tenth year.
As well as the spectacle away from the track, there’s plenty of drama and action on it, too.
While Brit Lewis Hamilton has already bagged the drivers’ world championship, clinching his fifth title at the Mexican Grand Prix in October.
Sebastian Vettel is also assured of second place in the championship, but third is up for grabs, with Kimi Raikonnen, Valtteri Bottas and Max Verstappen in the running. Whatever happens, one of the biggest stories coming out of the race will be the farewell of Fernando Alonso, who is leaving McLaren and leaving the sport.
The drivers will race around the 5.5k Abu Dhabi circuit 55 times on Sunday, November 25.
The first track action will start at 1pm on Friday, November 25 with practice laps. More practices will take place at 5om the same day and again at 2pm the following day.
At 5pm on Saturday, November 24 qualifying will take place, while the race will start at 5pm on Sunday, November 25. General admission tickets are now sold out, but there are still two-day tickets on offer for the Marina Grandstand and loads of other packages and hospitality passes available.
From Dhs1,970 (Sat-Sun Marina Grandstand) to Dhs21,395 (three-day super parks pass with hospitality. Nov 23-25. Yas Marina Circuit, Yas Island, www.ticketsyasmarinacircuit.com.
