Abu Dhabi Grand Prix 2018

Welcome to the 2018 Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. Described by Bernie Ecclestone, President of Formula One as 'one of the most exciting tracks I have ever seen'. The Yas Marina Circuit hosts F1's only twilight race, creating a magical atmosphere as day turns to night under the lights, there is no better place to see the stars of F1 shine. This is a comfortable, modern venue, with excellent hospitality, and an abundance of off-track attractions from the thrill of Ferrari World to the concerts in Yas Arena. Very much looked-forward to, the Formula 1 Abu Dhabi, its glamour and amazing circuit as well as its top-class entertainment constitute the perfect ending for yet another brilliant Formula 1 season. Some characteristic features of the Yas Marina Circuit are the cars passing through the yacht-filled Marina, under the stunning illuminated Yas Viceroy Hotel and exit the pit lane through a tunnel. The track has a slow-nature layout, despite two long straights.

You will see the cars storm our of the straight and weave through the chicane at Turns 11-12 before accelerating hard out of Turn14. You will also see them sweep around the yachts and the Marina before disappearing under the Yas Viceroy Hotel.

The Al Jood Main Suites are located on the upper floor of the Main Grandstand. These comfortable, private and luxurious lounges are air-conditioned and offer some of the best viewing of the action throughout the weekend.

View: Guests of the prestigious Al Jood Main suites will enjoy outstanding views of the Yas Marina Circuit’s Main Straight, Pit Lane, and first and last corners from a private section of the Main Grandstand’s second level. In a comfortable and relaxed setting, this is one of the most luxurious ways to breathe in all the magic of the Formula 1 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, with a bird’s eye view of the Starting Grid and Finish of the race. Keep an eye on strategies with great sights of the Pit Lane and celebrate the Grand Prix winner with a clear view of the Podium Ceremony.

Ticketholders relish a reserved seat in the top level of the North Grandstand and access to a lounge. The package includes a reserved seat in the upper level of the panoramic North Grandstand, and access to a private lounge located at the top of the stand.

Seats in the North Grandstand provide great sights of the chicane at Turns 5 and 6, and a bird’s eye view of the North Hairpin (Turn 7) and Back Straight. While the chicane and hairpin are fantastic places to witness overtaking throughout the race, the circuit’s long Back Straight will allow ticketholders to enjoy the utter power of a Formula 1 car heading at full throttle towards the chicanes at Turns 8-9.

The Main Grandstand runs along the inside of the main straight, facing the starting grid and the pit lane.

View: Seats in this grandstand are a great place to follow the thrilling pre-race grid preparations, the dramatic race start, and see the winner take the chequered flag before celebrating on the podium. This is a fantastic spot for speed lovers too as you will see the cars exit the final right-hander before blasting past you down the main straight.
