23-25 November - How will the weather affect this year's Abu Dhabi Grand Prix?

The Yas Marina circuit is located on the spectacular Yas Island, and hosted Abu Dhabi’s inaugural Grand Prix in 2009, holding the first Formula 1 twilight race. The track features a combination of high-speed sections and tight corners to create one of the longest and most demanding tracks in the world.

How does weather affect racing?

Different weather conditions can result in very different races, and Formula 1 teams adapt their strategy accordingly, for example using different tyres in wet conditions, and taking account of cross winds which can cause stability problems at high speeds.

You can check the weather forecast for other events through the Events Calendar.
