Abu Dhabi Grand Prix 2021


Experience F1™ in Abu Dhabi
from 10-12 December quarantine-free

Starting in sunshine and ending at night with fireworks filling the sky, the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix is perhaps the most exciting race on the F1™ calendar.

Challenging driving conditions and one of the longest straight on any F1™ track adds to the drama at the glamorous, cutting-edge Yas Marina Circuit. It’s where dreams are made or shattered, as the final race of the season.

After-race entertainment continues into the night with exclusive concerts for Abu Dhabi Grand Prix ticket holders.

Beyond F1™ there are also plenty of opportunities to experience the golden beaches, eclectic restaurants and world-class activities in Abu Dhabi.

And with no quarantine if you've been fully vaccinated, there really is no better reason to book a trip to the capital of the UAE.
