The 2014 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix
The F1 Grand Prix in Abu Dhabi is back!
Approaching its 6th consecutive year, the 2014 Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix is right around the corner. The event, held on the 21st, 22nd, and 23rd of November, is sure to be the highlight of any car enthusiast’s year.
Those lucky enough to have tickets to see the 19th and final round of the 2014 season will be part of Grand Prix history. This race marks the first time in a Grand Prix that teams and drivers will be awarded double points for race finish positions. It gives the underdogs in the race, who would usually be disregarded because of low point tally, a real chance at a win.
Abu Dhabi has created a track of world-class standards, on Yas Island. If you haven’t seen it – you really must visit.
Currently the Brit, Lewis Hamilton in Mercedes construction, has the lead with 334 points; a seventeen-point lead over his 2nd placed, German teammate, Nico Rosberg. Daniel Ricciardo, of Australia, holds third place in Red Bull-Renault construction, followed by teammate Sebastian Vettel, going into the final race in Abu Dhabi, with 214 and 159 points, respectively.
Even if you don’t particularly have any interest in the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix – rest assured, because this event has a little something for everyone.
The Entertainment line-up for daily post-race celebrations is truly world-class.
Four days of concerts at du Arena have been planned for the F1 ticket-holders.
