"We're always told to fit into this box and do what other people expect of us and be what other people expect of us. What I've learned is that to really be successful is to love every single thing you do and to find joy in that. I try and achieve my daily goal to make one thing more beautiful every single day. I want to bring my joy of gymnastics and of life to Monaco and the Gala International de Gymnastique Princess Grace"

Katelyn Ohashi

"Life is a big adventure that all comes down to choices. The choices you make are going to dictate the life you lead. When you understand that, this is when your life starts to come alive. I do not believe in failure and gratitude is the most important habit to train. I am fortunate to be invited to this wonderful Gala in Monaco alongside Katelyn.”

Everything you need to know about the spectacular end of season F1® race

Why go?
It’s hard to find a more spectacular setting for a Grand Prix than Yas Island, on the eastern side of Abu Dhabi.  You can immerse yourself in opulent grandeur in the many 5-star hotels and the 5.55-kilometer (3.45-mile) Yas Marina Circuit provides a suitably glamorous venue for the culmination of the Formula One World Championship as cars speed alongside the island’s spectacular marina and under the futuristic Yas Hotel Abu Dhabi.  

Closest airports to Yas Marina
Abu Dhabi International Airport (AUH): located around 30km from the city centre and just 10km from Yas Marina, Abu Dhabi Airport is the logical place to fly into for the Grand Prix this November.

Dubai International Airport (DXB): don’t discount flying into Dubai, just 120km from the centre of Abu Dhabi and 95km from Yas Marina.

How to get to Yas Marina Circuit
Yas Island is inundated with taxis on race weekend. A trip from the centre of Abu Dhabi to Yas Island is inexpensive and can take you directly to the entrance gate in the morning. Free shuttle buses ferry racegoers out of the Marina and to nearby car parks full of taxis after the event.

A free park and ride shuttle service runs for those coming into Abu Dhabi for the race, too. Just show your race ticket to hop on.

Several hotels operate their own complimentary shuttle service for guests visiting the Grand Prix.

Outside the F1

Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque: One of the world’s largest and most spectacular mosques, a celebration of all the great Islamic empires in pure white marble and futuristic 21st century design.

Ferrari World: Experience the most thrilling theme park in the world!

Observation Deck at 300: For staggering views across the city head for the 74th floor of Tower 2 at the Etihad Towers Complex, the city’s tallest structure at 300 metres.
 
The Louvre Abu Dhabi: Even dedicated Formula 1 fans would be doing themselves a great disservice if they didn’t add a couple of extra days to their itinerary to experience the delights of Abu Dhabi. Culture vultures can immerse themselves in art in an array of museums including the Louvre Abu Dhabi opened in 2017, with its iconic hole-punched dome and cool galleries.
 
Helicopter Tour: For a suitably glitzy way to mark the beginning or end of your F1 trip, why not take a helicopter trip over the city? Cover views of the Emirates Palace, the Corniche, Ferrari World and all the F1 action down on Yas Island.


Desert Safari: For those chasing an adrenaline buzz, take a sunset trip out to the desert in a 4×4 for a roller-coaster ride over sand dunes. Excursions are led by experienced dune drivers and end with dinner and dancing in the desert.

Shopping: Away from the shopping malls featuring international designers, visit the souqs at Mina Port for handwoven rugs and delicious treats such as dates and traditional sweets.

Emirates National Auto Museum: This one is an absolute must for any car fanatic. This public collection of over 200 cars belongs to HH Sheikh Hamad Bin Hamdan Al Nahyan, an incurable petrolhead known as the ‘Rainbow Sheikh’.

Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc takes his 2nd Grand Prix win

Following a controversial Q3, Charles Leclerc took full advantage of his pole position and triumphed at Monza, producing his second Formula 1 career win for Ferrari despite a late surge by Valtteri Bottas for Mercedes.

This home win for Scuderia Ferrari, celebrating their 90thanniversary this year, was met with triumph by the partisan Monza spectators who turned the grandstands into a sea of red. The celebrations were particularly poignant following the muted celebrations of Leclerc’s first win at Spa Francorchamps, reflecting the sadness in the paddock due to tragic Formula 2 incident that led to the loss of Anthoine Hubert and the ongoing condition of Juan Manuel Correa.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h-ce3gPMsGc

 

Leclerc became the youngest Ferrari driver to win at Monza and ended a nine-year losing streak at Monza for Ferrari sending the tifosi into raptures of delight. Valtteri Bottas and Lewis Hamilton completed the podium, but the Renault team were perhaps the most delighted with their 4thand 5thplaces – easily their most successful weekend of the season so far. Daniel Ricciardo and Nico Hulkenberg had locked out the third row of the grid on Saturday and they were able to capitalise on Sebastian Vettel’s spin with Ricciardo. Full race results below:

  1. Charles Leclers Ferrari
  2. Valtteri Bottas Mercedes
  3. Lewis Hamilton Mercedes
  4. Daniel Ricciardo Renault
  5. Nico Hulkenberg Renault
  6. Alexander Albon Reb Bull
  7. Sergio Perez Racing Point
  8. Max Verstappen Red Bull
  9. Antonio Giovinazzi Alfa Romeo
  10. Lando Norris McLaren
  11. Pierre Gasly Toro Rosso
  12. Lance Stroll Racing Point
  13. Sebastian Vettel Ferrari
  14. George Russell Williams
  15. Kimi Raikkonen Afla Romeo
  16. Romain Grosjean Haas
  17. Robert Kubica Williams
  18. NC Kevin Magnussen Hass
  19. NC Daniil Kvyat Toro Rosso
  20. NC Carlos Sainz Jnr McLaren

The excitement of Monza will be at least doubled in Singapore – the city will be lit up for Formula 1’s night race and Amber Lounge will be there to lead the celebrations.  We look forward to seeing you there!
