This year the F1 race weekend festivities will last for five days…

It’s time to start organising your calendar as tickets for the 2019 Formula 1 Grand Prix at Yas Marina Circuit are now on sale. The final race of the F1 season will this year take place from Thursday November 28 to Monday December 2, bringing five days of on-track and off-track entertainment to Abu Dhabi.

So what’s new for 2019?

Well, this year the race celebrations have been extended by an extra day to co-inside with UAE National Day, giving you five days of action-packed excitement to get involved in.

The final race will still take place on the Sunday, with Monday dedicated to a day of fun activations on Abu Dhabi Hill in celebration of the 48th UAE National Day.

The Grand Prix falls over National Day weekend, so we could be granted one or two days public holiday, allowing you to enjoy the race without using up precious annual leave this year.
