F1 ticket worth Dhs467,000 goes on sale. So what do you get?
What’s On has details of the most expensive Abu Dhabi Grand Prix tickets at Yas Island from November 21 to 23; it’s the Ultimate Race Weekend Experience.
Dubai and Abu Dhabi don’t do things by halves. So why, when the most glamorous sporting event of the year rolls into town, would you not want to standout from the crowd?
Well now, for a cool half a million dirhams, you can throughout the F1 weekend in November. Making a statement amidst the glitz the marina of extravagant yachts, car parks as expensively assembled as the pit lane, and after-parties that only the most important of VIPs are able to attend, isn’t easy.
But Yas Viceroy, the iconic hotel at the heart of the circuit on Yas Island, is offering the ‘Ultimate Race-Weekend Experience’, which starts with a private seaplane transfer and ends with first class flights to a beachfront villa at Viceroy Maldives for a two-night stay.
In between times, ticket holders will enjoy four nights of Presidential accommodation – a 400 square metre duplex suite with butler, private treatment room, sauna and steam room, roof-top swimming pool, and sweeping vistas of the track – and access to a chauffeur-driven Rolls Royce in which you can explore Abu Dhabi.
On top of all that, guests will of course get a VIP tour of Ferrari World and tickets to the star-studded post-race concerts, which are, as yet, announced.
And as for the finale in the Maldives, how does 17 acres of pristine beach, azure lagoon waters, a private plunge pool and dinner in a Middle Eastern-inspired Tree house sound?
The whole package comes in at an eye-watering Dhs467,000. Or two-days salary for championship hopeful Lewis Hamilton of Mercedes.

The race weekend itself, which runs from November 21 to 23, is the finale of the current season which sees Brit Hamilton slugging it out with team-mate Nico Rosberg for the title. Points in Abu Dhabi count double towards the driver’s totals.
