Whether you have a golden ticket to watch the hottest sporting event in the UAE, or simply watching from afar, we are your one-stop shop for the F1 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. So follow us on the global Snapchat account @TimeOut.
We will be heading down to the capital for all three main days, taking you behind-the-scenes at the hottest concerts, official after-parties, and of course, the big final race of the season.
Follow us on Snapchat (username: TimeOut) and see get unrestricted access to the massive sporting weekend.
- In true UAE style, we will be hitching an afternoon UberChopper ride from Dubai to Yas Island. No big deal really. These one-off flights start from Dhs500 per person, and can be booked via the Uber app on iPhone and Android devices.
- Getting access to an exclusive suite at the Yas Viceroy Hotel, we will watch the race drivers do their practice laps around the circuit from The Richlist’s special terrace.
- For sundowners, we will take you for a wander around Yas Island’s Marina and then head to the Iris terrace at twilight hour.
- The first post-race concert of the season is next – hopefully bagging front-row seats, we will give you a peep at The Chemical Brothers concert.
- MAD Yas is hosting Sean Paul and Rita Ora really, really late on Friday night, so obviously, you will be with us, dancing to Temperature.
- You haven't really enjoyed the F1 weekend unless you’ve seen the qualifying race from a docked yacht in the Marina. Getting a very special seat, we will be on-board the members-only Dubai Key yacht. www.dubai-key.com.
- Hello to Lionel Richie! See you on the side of the stage when the legend performs at the du Arena concert space.
- After the show is the after party, and what an after party this one is going to be at VIP ROOM. The king of RnB, Drake, will be hosting his friends and Rihanna’s brother, and you will be joining with dancing shoes, and sparklers.
- It’s race day – and we will give you the best seat in the house at the terrace of Yas Viceroy Hotel for the final race from 5pm onwards.
- For the grand finale, Rihanna will be taking her Caribbean moves to the stage at the du arena.
- If we're still standing by then, we will be at a very exclusive meet-and-greet with Brit rapper Jay Sean at the original F1 after-party, Amber Lounge. This event has hosted Prince Harry, Kylie Minogue and Craig David in the last few years, and this year, the Yas Links Golf Club is expecting an even bigger party crowd.
Who's ready for the weekend?
