About the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix

Abu Dhabi Grand Prix is one of the stages of the F1 World Championship. The picturesque Yas Marina Circuit was built in 2009 on the man-made island of Yas. The circuit is 5.5 km long, with architecture borrowed from the Principality of Monaco, hence some similarities can be noticed. A special feature of the race is that it takes place in alternating days and nights, different from other F1 circuits.
