The 2020 Formula 1 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix takes place this weekend at the Yas Marina Circuit, close to the city of Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates. The Yas Marina Circuit is something special. Not because of the track itself (which is almost entirely devoid of character and far too forgiving on mistakes), but because of what used to be here.
Empty space and sea water.
Yas Island, upon which the circuit lies, is man-made. It was created for the sole purpose of being a world-leading tourist destination, and it very much achieved that goal.
Attractions include Ferrari World, a Monaco-esque marina, an award-winning golf course, a ridiculously impressive-looking waterpark, a beach and a slew of magnificent hotels and restaurants.
Join us for the latest updates and results from the Yas Marina Circuit, as the 2020 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix is about to get underway, with Sebastian Vettel and Charles Leclerc at the wheel of the SF1000, ready to score as many points as possible in the final race of the 2020 Formula 1 season.
