The Abu Dhabi Grand Prix is the traditional end to the Formula 1 season, and is the place to watch the racing action in style. Since 2009, the race has been one of the final two rounds of the season and has always provided drama right to the end of the racing year. In 2010, Sebastian Vettel, Lewis Hamilton, Fernando Alonso and Mark Webber were all in contention to win the World Championship at the final F1 race. Vettel was the victor, winning his first of four drivers’ championships and becoming the youngest driver to be crowned. Each year the event also sees a winner crowned in F2, as the support series comes to a close at Abu Dhabi. Built around the Marina on Yas Island - just thirty minutes from the United Arab Emirates capital Abu Dhabi, the circuit has a Monaco vibe as it passes Yas Marina, full of luxury, and passes under the impressive W Hotel. When the race is over and the season is done, there are plenty of opportunities to join the teams as they celebrate a year well done, with Amber Lounge parties and premium hospitality packages popular options for the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.
