After the checkered flag dropped on an exhilarating 2017 season at Yas Marina Circuit last night, F1 got the green light to party!

And race to party it did, with 17 drivers and members of all ten Formula 1 teams yet again making Amber Lounge their afterparty destination of choice for celebrating the sports major crowning moments. There, they were joined by an array of celebrities and guests from Amber Lounge’s discerning United Arab Emirates and international clientele.

Headlining artist, singer sensation, Ella Eyre, delivered another powerhouse performance of her major hits Came Here For Love and Waiting All Night, breaking into her set to give a shout-out to all the racers who gave us such an electrifying season of Formula 1 entertainment.

Located at Yas Links, Yas Island, Amber Lounge delivered a thrilling non-stop nightlife experience all weekend, from dusk till dawn. Among the array of premium highlights this year, Amber Lounge catered to true luxury aficionados with a beautiful Grey Goose Bar serving free-flowing ice-cold vodka, and luxury beverages from Tonino Lamborghini, whose “elegance doesn’t go to bed at 11pm” is perfectly synonymous with the spirit of Amber Lounge.

Enjoyed in four spectacular racing destinations, Amber Lounge is the realisation of a vision held by Sonia Irvine, a pioneer of F1 nightlife experiences, to create the most sought-after events on the F1 calendar. 2017 was the ninth year of Amber Lounge’s commitment to hosting breathtaking nightlife experiences at this first-class racing destination.

“What an incredible night, with Formula 1 quite rightly letting its hair down at the end of another hard-fought but incredible season. Amber Lounge Abu Dhabi just keeps getting better and better”, says Sonia Irvine, Founder and CEO of Amber Lounge. “We’ve enjoyed two incredible afterparty nights this weekend, as well as a variety of Amber Lounge hospitality experiences, and I am so thrilled that we continue to provide guests with the most entertaining and luxurious way to experience the true glamour of F1. As the sun sets on 2017’s on-track action, our thoughts have already turned to the Monaco Grand Prix, the first pitstop in what is shaping up to be an exciting Amber Lounge 2018 calendar.”
