The Circuit

The season reaches its conclusion at Yas Marina with a fierce battle for P2 in the Constructors’ Championship

Abu Dhabi made its F1 debut in 2009 as the sport’s first ever twilight race, with the start taking place at sunset.

  • These changes including removing the chicane at the start of the second sector and widening the following hairpin. The twisty chicanes at the start of the final sector were also replaced by one long, banked corner.

  • Similar to other twilight and night races on the calendar, FP1 and FP3 take place in the daytime. FP2, Qualifying and the Grand Prix itself take place at night or as the sun sets.

  • That poses a challenge to the engineers and drivers who must accommodate for the changes in tyre and car behaviour owing to the differing ambient and track temperatures.

  • The pitlane at the Yas Marina Circuit is unique in F1, in that it features a tunnel.

  • Drivers pass under the track at the pit lane exit, re-joining on the left-hand side of Turn 2.

  • Last year’s race saw more overtakes than in any other Grand Prix that season with 80.

  • 16 of those were ‘normal’ overtakes and 64 of those with the use of DRS.

  • The Yas Marina Circuit will this weekend overtake Adelaide as the track at which the most season-ending F1 races have been held (12th finale).

Designed by Hermann Tilke, the layout features nine right turns, 12 left turns and is one of the few venues on the calendar to run in an anti-clockwise direction.

Around 4,700 light fixtures are used to illuminate the track.
