Coronavirus restrictions in place
While the 2020 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix took place behind closed doors due to the coronavirus pandemic, the 2021 event will be open to the public. There will be strict protocols in place at the event to ensure the health and safety of all spectators. The seating capacity is reduced from previous years, meaning there will be reduced availability in tickets.
Those attending will need to be fully vaccinated against the virus and will also need proof of a recent negative PCR test. Temperature checks will take place on entry to the circuit, and face masks must be worn once inside the venue. Furthermore, fans in grandstands will be seated in socially-distanced groups of up to 10 people, and children under the age of 12 are not able to attend.
There will be hand sanitising stations placed around the circuit and staff will be deep cleaning public spaces around the venue. To help with the venue’s efforts, social distancing will be in place and contactless payment methods are encouraged. You can read more details about the protocols in place at Yas Marina Circuit here.
Changes to previous years
Due to the restrictions, regular Abu Dhabi Grand Prix race goers will notice a few differences from previous events. Unfortunately, the pit lane walk and driver’s autograph session will not take place. The good news is that in their place, a Track Walk will take place on Thursday for 3-day ticket holders.
In terms of concerts, ticket holders are permitted to attend only one concert over the race weekend. 3-day ticket holders can choose to attend the Du Arena on any of the three nights, 2-day tickets can choose between their two days and 1-day ticket holders can attend the concert at Etihad Park on the day of their ticket. More information in our Trackside guide.
A new track layout
The Abu Dhabi Grand Prix has historically not been known as an event which provides much racing action, due to the difficulty of overtaking at the circuit. However, that could change in 2021, with modifications to the track layout being carried out over the summer.
The exact changes to the circuit have not yet been made public knowledge, though speculation suggests that the complex between Turns 5 and 7 (before the long straight) and the area between Turns 11 and 14 are set to be changed. Should that be the case, fans in the North Grandstand will be in a prime spot to enjoy plenty of racing action at F1’s season finale.
