9-12 December 2021
The Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix is returning and is set to see out another magnificent Formula One season out in style. The annual car-racing extravaganza in Abu Dhabi will bring together a range of fun activities ranging from exclusive rooftop parties, concerts plus art and sporting events. More than 60,000 racing enthusiasts are expected to flock to the capital of the United Arab Emirates grand prix.
Yas Marina Circuit Changes
After complaints last year about the venue not delivering enough of a spectacle for F1, circuit bosses gave the green light for a major overhaul of the layout. Following months of work, the raft of tweaks in three areas of the track have now been completed and resulted in the track being slightly shorter at 5.28km.
The biggest tweak is at the newly renamed Marsa corner at the end of the second backstraight, where a sequence of 90-degree bends have been replaced by a single banked turn. Simulations suggest cars will take this at 240km/h.
The hairpin before the first back straight has also been changed, with the chicane before it removed and the tight turn itself widened to a 20-meter wide corner. It is expected that cars will be approaching this hairpin at 300km/h.
Yas Marina Circuit is already one of the most modern and impressive Formula 1 tracks in the world, and these enhancements will ensure spectators in attendance will see a wealth of entertainment across all motorsports disciplines moving forward, as well as providing exhilarating racing for those on the track.
Full Capacity Event
Abu Dhabi’s Formula 1 GP to be held at full capacity. Those who attend will be required to present a Green Pass through the Al Hosn app, a negative PCR test taken within 48 hours and wear a mask to enter the venue. Children under the age of 12 will also be permitted to attend events during the race week.
US pop star Khalid will begin the proceedings on Thursday, 9 December, and British rapper Stormzy will perform the following night on Friday, 10 December.
On Saturday, 11 December, Scot Lewis Capaldi, winner of two Brit Awards, will bring his soulful sound to Etihad Park.
The Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix 2021 will end on an epic rock note with Foo Fighters headlining the race day concert at Etihad Park on Sunday, 12 December.
