In Abu Dhabi’s winter, the temperature reaches highs of 26°C and the sun is shining. On the day at Yas Marina, wear light clothing and a hat – with a cover up for the cooler evening and the concerts. Attitude towards dress is fairly liberal in the UAE, but modesty is appreciated. A lot of guests choose to dress up for the occasion, but you’ll spend lots of time on your feet, so dress for comfort too.
Yas Marina Circuit is 5.55 kilometres long (just over 3.4 miles). There are 21 turns on the circuit – nine to the left, 12 to the right. The record Formula 1™ lap time for the circuit is one minute and 39 seconds – held by Lewis Hamilton in 2019.
