#AbuDhabiGP - THE TIME IS NOW
Date: Friday 25th to Sunday 27th November 2016
Location: Yas Marina Circuit, Yas Island, Abu Dhabi, UAE
THE RACE TO THE TITLE
Would you believe it, it’s that time of year again when the F1 fraternity prepares to descend on the UAE for the 8th Abu Dhabi Grand Prix held at the awe inspiring Yas Marina Circuit.
Last year’s race saw Nico Rosberg win for the first time at Yas Marina, with Lewis Hamilton winning in 2014 (and 2011). As the race to the world championship title reaches its finale, who will be the winner and take the crown? It looks like this last race of the F1 season could be the decider.

Sunday 27th November: Rihanna takes to the stage after the main race, on her only stop in the Middle East, as part of her Anti World Tour.
