Yas Marina Circuit is set to host the FORMULA 1 ETIHAD AIRWAYS ABU DHABI GRAND PRIX 2020 on 13 December.
The 12th instalment of the event will take place without spectators due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Formula 1 biosphere will be constructed on Yas Island. It will be one of the largest' safe zones' in the region with access restricted to essential F1 staff, drivers and teams. The precautionary measures set in place during the F1 weekend will prioritise the wellbeing of the F1 community while maintaining the competitive integrity of the final race of the season.
Taking part in this year's FORMULA 1 ETIHAD AIRWAYS ABU DHABI GRAND PRIX 2020 is Lewis Hamilton, Charles Leclerc, Max Verstappen and Valtteri Bottas. Lewis Hamilton will be aiming for a third consecutive Abu Dhabi triumph, and sixth in total. His Mercedes team has been even more dominant, finishing top of the constructor standings for the past six years in a row.
Acting CEO of Abu Dhabi Motorsport Management (ADMM), Saif Al Noaimi, said that they are grateful for the commitment of F1 management, the teams and their Abu Dhabi partners and it's their efforts that allow them to host a safe and competitive final race of the season. She gave a special thanks to ADNOC and Etihad Airways who were their sponsors.
The global sporting event is going to use the innovative 'safe zone' model.
The 'safe zone' was created with the collaboration between public and private stakeholders in Abu Dhabi.
