Abu Dhabi Grand Prix

The Abu Dhabi Grand Prix 2019 marks the final race of the 2019 Formula One Season. Lewis Hamilton has already wrapped up the 2019 driver’s championship, his sixth world championship in total. This weekend’s race will be held at the Yas Marina Circuit, as has been the case since 2009.

Since then, it has been a regular feature in the Formula One World Championship. Abu Dhabi has played host to a few championship showdowns in recent years. Unfortunately, this time it is not the case

Abu Dhabi Grand Prix 2019 Circuit Details 

The 21-corner circuit is situated on Yas Island off the Abu Dhabi coast. The Hermann Tilke circuit passes by the marina and through the Yas Hotel.

During the inaugural race weekend, the reaction was fairly positive, with Nico Rosberg saying that every corner was ‘unique’. Even Fernando Alonso confessed that it was enjoyable because there was always something to do.

However, just as there were praises, there were also plenty of critics. The main gripe was the pit exit, which dips under the main circuit via a tunnel. Although the pit exit remained free of incidents for the early practice sessions, some claimed that it was both very difficult and dangerous. Kimi Räikkönen notoriously gave his thoughts on the circuit, stating “the first few turns are quite good, but the rest of it is shit”.
