Discover Yas Marina Circuit
Find the right tickets for your next visit with our helpful guide. From Abu Dhabi Hill, or trackside in the Champions Club, enjoy a panoramic view of the yacht-filled marina and see, hear and feel the cars from the heart of the action.
Of course! It’s lights out and away we go (to our seats). We couldn’t wait any longer to get the grandstands feeling alive again, so we hope you’re bringing your best fan gear and cheering voice. The most exciting race of the year will be going ahead with some added COVID-19 safety measures so make sure you read up on those to keep yourself informed and safe.
Your Abu Dhabi Grand Prix F1™ experience will begin in glorious sunshine as you take your seats and prepare for an evening of action. You’ll then watch the race start to unfold at dusk as the sun sets and eventually paves the way for a thrilling night race with sparks, glowing lights and fireworks galore.
Abu Dhabi is a truly unique F1™ experience that you won’t forget.
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 5.55km 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.
The F1 Paddock Club™ at Yas Marina offers the ultimate F1™ experience. Enjoy an unparalleled view from above the pits, with suite access and luxury hospitality. Your ticket includes all-day refreshments, with live cooking stations, a champagne bar, exclusive access to the F1™ pit lane and a 360-degree roof top terrace.
At Yas Marina Circuit, you choose your ultimate driving experience. Take to the wheel of the world’s most beautiful and powerful cars, like the Mercedes-AMG GTS Drive or the Ferrari 458 GT Drive. You can also opt for a passenger experience for a different taste of the track. Book your experience with Etihad Airways. The track is closed before and after the race so it’s best to check in advance..
