    Inaugurado en el año 2009, también es obra del ingeniero alemán Hermman Tilke, que parece tener la exclusiva diseñadora de pistas para la F1.
    Ubicado en los Emiratos Árabes, es otra pista de acelerón y frenada, y especialmente adaptada para la utilización del anterior sistema KERS y actual sistema ERS.
    El hecho de que la carrera empiece a las 05 PM locales, asegura un comienzo con luz diurna, y un final con iluminación artificial, como ocurre en Singapur.
    Es una pista sencilla, en la que su segundo sector, con sus curvas de 90º al estilo urbano, es lo único que requiere de la habilidad del piloto.
    Imitando a Mónaco, también dispone de puerto deportivo, y el lujo se extiende por toda la zona, ya que la presencia de hoteles de súper lujo, con espectaculares iluminaciones nocturnas, el puerto, y la presencia del parque temático de Ferrari, colindante con las instalaciones del circuito, proveen a todo el conjunto un evidente aspecto de lujo y glamour.

    Después de las quejas del pasado año 2020, sobre el hecho de que el trazado no permitiera suficiente espectáculo a la F1, los jefes del circuito dieron luz verde a una importante revisión del trazado.

    Tras varios meses de trabajo, se han completado los ajustes en tres zonas de la pista, lo que ha provocado que el trazado sea ligeramente más corto, pasando a ser de 5,281 km.

    El mayor cambio se produce en la recién rebautizada curva Marsa, al final de la segunda recta de atrás, donde una secuencia de curvas de 90 grados ha sido sustituida por una única curva peraltada. Las simulaciones sugieren que los coches la cogerán a 240 km/h.

    La horquilla que precede a la primera recta de atrás también ha sido modificada, ya que se ha eliminado la chicane que la precedía y se ha ampliado la curva cerrada hasta convertirla en una de 20 metros de ancho. Se espera que los coches se acerquen ahí a 300 km/h.

    También se ha realizado un cambio menos evidente donde el complejo hotelero. Las curvas se han ampliado ligeramente para intentar que los coches puedan seguirse mejor.

    ¡Muchas gracias por el último hilo de la temporada! Ha sido un lujo disfrutar de todos y cada uno de los hilos de esta emocionante temporada y todos los datos que nos has proporcionado, algunos contra viento y marea, aunque te quisieran secuestrar los batas blancas.

    Llega el campeonato a su final más calentito de lo que jamás nos hubiésemos imaginado en el inicio y con excesivo protagonismo por parte de Dirección de Carrera y la FIA. Esperemos tener un final que recordemos para siempre por una lucha limpia y emocionante en la pista y sin niguna intervención vergonzosa de los mandamases.

    Me toca perderme los libres 1 y casi todos los libres 2, pero deseando que llegue el viernes para ver los estados de ánimo de los contendientes.

    Iremos llenando el saco.

    Impresiones de los equipos antes del GP:


    Abu Dhabi GP: Preview - Haas

    Uralkali Haas F1 Team is ready to go racing one more time in 2021 with the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix set to bring down the curtain on the 22-round Formula 1 season.


    Abu Dhabi joined Formula 1's calendar in 2009 at the purpose-built Yas Marina Circuit, becoming the championship's first day-night event, courtesy of the facility being equipped with 5,000 lights. Yas Marina will play host to Formula 1's season finale for the eighth successive season, and 10th time overall, with only Australia's Adelaide having held the championship's curtain-closer on more occasions.


    It will be the final race for the current specification cars, ahead of an overhaul of the regulations, while Formula 1 also waves goodbye to 13-inch tires, with 18-inch versions set to come in for 2022.


    But for 2021's swansong there are still some new factors to explore. For the first time since its debut in 2009 Yas Marina's layout has been amended in a bid to facilitate better racing while providing more of a challenge for teams and drivers. The previous Turn 5/6/7 complex has been replaced by a hairpin while the old Turn 11-14 sequence has been replaced by a sweeping corner.

    Some other corners, most notably in the final sector of the lap around the iconic honeycombed W Hotel, have been reprofiled and resurfaced in order to create a faster and more flowing track. That is set to lower lap times by around 10 seconds, with the circuit now consisting of 16 turns, while a new race distance has been set at 58 laps.


    The event also brings down the curtain on year one for Uralkali Haas F1 Team racers Nikita Mazepin and Mick Schumacher. It is a venue that acted as milestones in the careers of both drivers. Mazepin secured the GP3 Series Vice Champion trophy in 2018 while in 2020 Schumacher's first on-track outing with Uralkali Haas F1 Team came at Yas Marina Circuit. Schumacher lapped in Friday's first practice session, prior to partaking in the post-event young driver test.


    We're at Round 22 of the 2021 FIA Formula 1 World Championship, the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, and the final race of the season. How are you feeling physically and mentally and what are your thoughts going into the closing race of the year?

    Guenther Steiner: "Physically and mentally, I'm feeling good. Everyone's a little bit tired, it's been a long season, a tough season and I'm very happy that it's over. The good thing is that we're looking forward to 2022 - there's some excitement there - it's a completely new car and we should be back where we want to be fighting for points, that's our aim. Everybody is going to do that but we're over the year that we just get by, now we'll try to get in it again like before the pandemic. I hope the team can recover after a hard season and thanks to all of them for doing everything they had to in order to get through the year. It was tough, tough physically because of so many races, and it was tough mentally as we weren't running where we wanted to.

    Also, thanks to FOM for putting the calendar together because it was another tough year due to the pandemic. Getting all these races in and keeping us in business - growing the sport in difficult circumstances, well it is a great result."


    The Yas Marina circuit has undergone comprehensive changes this season - designed to improve overtaking opportunities and overall racing. Do you think the changes will promote closer racing?

    GS: "That's what the aim is - the proof is in the pudding. We will find out when we run but the people who have done this know what they're doing and in my opinion it will help, but we'll see when we get there how much it helps. If we achieve two out of the three, I think that's a success."


    Once the checkered flag falls on Sunday, and after the end-of-season test, what are your immediate plans? Back to family for the festive period or already thinking about 2022 preparations?

    GS: "I am going back to Italy - I will be in Maranello with the team as I haven't been there for a while and for the festive period I will stay at my home in Italy, and then back to the US at the beginning of January. In that period between Christmas and the new year I'll recharge the batteries and then go flat-out again to get ready as good as we can for 2022."


    We're at Round 22 of the 2021 FIA Formula 1 World Championship, the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, and the final race of your rookie season. How are you feeling physically and mentally and what are your thoughts going into the closing race of the year?

    Nikita Mazrpin: "I'm excited to get to Abu Dhabi - it's going to be a new track and I'm interested to see if the layout will change some things. I don't feel mentally fatigued and I'm ready to continue racing which is a good thing, but for sure the team, engineers and mechanics do need rest."

You've raced here previously; do you think the changes will promote closer racing? You've raced here previously, do you think the changes will promote closer racing?

    NM: "I've only raced at Yas Marina in F2 and F3 and racing was on the good side, overtaking wasn't easy but was still possible. It's going to be a really good track if it makes a step forward because it's a cool venue and if you can see people going up and down the order it will make it exciting for the fans."


    Once the checkered flag falls on Sunday, and after the end-of-season test, what are your immediate plans? Back to family for the festive period or already thinking about 2022 preparations?

    NM: "My immediate plans are to do the test with the team in the mule car after the race weekend and then I'm going for a three-day test in the desert driving buggies. Then, I need to go back to university to finish up exams before the new year."


    We're at Round 22 of the 2021 FIA Formula 1 World Championship, the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, and the final race of your rookie season. How are you feeling physically and mentally and what are your thoughts going into the closing race of the year?

    Mick Schumacher: "The year has gone by quicker than I expected it would! It's been a lot - I've learned massive amounts in terms of approach to weekends and how to approach races. I am excited about my last race, I think we're all ready for a break. It's been a long year with lots of insecurities at times as well but overall, we've managed it well. We've got more than expected from the car and I'm happy with that. I think we achieved many good things and many things that we know we can improve for next year."

You've raced here previously; do you think the changes will promote closer racing? You've raced here previously, do you think the changes will promote closer racing?

    MS: "I think we'll have to wait and see until we arrive and do our first free practice. On paper, it's always easy to say there will be an increase in opportunities, but the fact is we always arrive to a track and then find that it's not the case. I'm going to the race with an open mind. Do I hope there are more overtaking opportunities - yes - I think that is something clearly that we would like for here. Hopefully it will also improve our ability to race with other cars."


    Once the checkered flag falls on Sunday, and after the end-of-season test, what are your immediate plans? Back to family for the festive period or already thinking about 2022 preparations?

    MS: "First of all, we have the test, which is an important one for us, so the focus will be 100 per cent for that. Then, I can let my guard down a bit and enjoy my time off and recharge the batteries as much as I can before going into 2022. When I am in that period of recovery, I will definitely be thinking a lot about next year and will be in constant exchange with the team involved. I want to be involved as much as I can in that period because obviously next year is hopefully an important year for us, where we can make it work where we expect it to. Definitely, our thoughts are on 2022 preparation - I'm really looking forward to it."

    Abu Dhabi GP: Preview - Williams

    The 2021 FIA Formula One World Championship draws to a close this weekend, as the Yas Marina Circuit plays host to the final race of the year: the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. The track, designed by Hermann Tilke, is dominated by a 1.2km-long straight between turns five and six, forming one of the longest acceleration stretches on the Formula One calendar. Recent renovations, including widening the hairpin at turn seven and eliminating the chicane on approach, along with a single sweeping banked turn replacing a series of 90-degree bends at the end of the second back straight, aim to increase overtaking opportunities and add to the event's excitement.


    The FW43B will start its final Grand Prix in the late afternoon Abu Dhabi sunshine, before the race heads into twilight conditions and the flag falls on the 2021 season beneath the circuit's floodlights. Sunday will also mark George Russell's 59th and final Grand Prix with the team following a three-year tenure as a Williams Racing driver, with the team wishing him all the very best for the future.


    On Friday, Jack Aitken, the team's Reserve Driver, will take to the track alongside Nicholas Latifi during the first Free Practice session, with George returning to the car for FP2. The session marks a remarkable return to fitness for Jack having recovered from multiple injuries suffered in an accident during the Spa 24 Hours event in July.


    Dave Robson, Head of Vehicle Performance: The final event of the 2021 season sees us return to Abu Dhabi. The Yas Marina Circuit has become the traditional season finale and this year will host one of the most exciting climaxes to the season that we have seen in sometime. The circuit layout has been modified considerably since last year with fewer corners and a more flowing beginning and end to the double straight section. Combined with changes to the penultimate corner, the circuit is now significantly quicker, and the ease of overtaking may also be improved. The modified areas inevitably have a newer and smoother surface, which will have a small effect on tyre behaviour.



    We know much of the circuit well and we are keen to explore the new corner complexes and to understand how they change the demands on the drivers and the car setup. Jack Aitken will drive George's car in FP1 this weekend and his experience and knowledge from the simulator will be a very useful compliment to Nicholas in the sister car. It will be a valuable assessment of both the general improvements made to the FW43B as well as the changes to this circuit.


    Pirelli have brought their softest compound this week, which they have done for the last few years here. The performance will be a bit tricky in the warmer conditions of FP1, but by the evening, they will be working well.


    This season has been intense and at times difficult, however, we have had some very enjoyable times and have made the most of several opportunities.

    If we can maintain eighth place in the Championship, then this will be a fair reward for the skill and dedication of everyone in Grove and at the track. Over the last few difficult seasons, nobody has dropped their commitment nor lost their racing instinct and, no matter what the final result is, we can be proud of what we have achieved this year.


    At the centre of much of what we have achieved over the last few years has been George. This weekend is his final race for the team. His enthusiasm, dedication and tremendous skill - as well as the occasional well-founded criticism - has been a major inspiration to the team throughout the bad times and the good times. We thank him for everything that he has brought to the team, wish him well for his future with Mercedes, and we hope that we have been able to give him some valuable experience and ideas that will serve him well in the future.


    George Russell: We head to Abu Dhabi for the final race of the season and what is sure to be a weekend full of mixed emotions as my journey with Williams comes to an end. It has been an incredible three years with the team, with many highs but also some lows, but I am determined to go out in the best possible fashion and help the team secure eighth place in the Constructors' Championship. It would be a fitting reward for all the hard work and efforts from everyone at Grove over the past few years as we've battled back from our difficulties when I first joined the team. I am sure there will be plenty of feelings and emotions after the Grand Prix on Sunday but until then, my full focus is on the track and putting together a strong weekend.


    I always enjoy racing at Yas Marina and have happy memories from winning the FIA Formula 2 title there in 2018. I'm also looking forward to tackling the revised layout, which I think will help to create an improved spectacle, and hopefully be beneficial to our car's performance across the event.


    Nicholas Latifi: There are always mixed feelings going into the final race of the year, but I'm excited to get out on track at Yas Marina Circuit. It will be interesting to see how the changes to the track impact the racing there, but it's good to see circuits looking to make improvements and I think it will provide a more exciting show for the fans.


    Our main goal this weekend will be to secure eighth place in the Constructers' Championship. The whole team has worked incredibly hard throughout the year; it would be great to be rewarded with that result and finish off our season on a high.


    Jack Aitken: It's a pretty special experience every time I get to drive the Williams car and it's great to be back with the boys and girls trackside again.

    The team has seen some good results in 2021 and I've been working in the simulator throughout the year to keep abreast of the FW43B's development, so that's given me a good idea of the characteristics to expect whilst out on track. Yas Marina is long circuit, and although it's not that complicated, it still has its challenges; sector three especially can lose you a lot of time. Overall, I'm really looking forward to being back out on track and getting down to work.

    Abu Dhabi GP: Preview - AlphaTauri

    Pierre Gasly: "That race in Jeddah is possibly the craziest race I have ever been in. I had to wait until I watched it all on TV to see all the battles and incidents and understand everything. Over a single lap, the track was brilliant to drive, but it got a bit crowded in the race! We showed good pace again right from free practice on Friday and that resulted in another fantastic Qualifying. In the end, I started sixth and finished sixth which is great, even though after the start I lost some places, but it's the final result and points that matter. And speaking of points, I am happy to have reached 100 points total for the first time in my F1 career.


    "Last year in Abu Dhabi I scored some points, starting tenth and finishing eighth. I've always liked it and there's a special atmosphere as it's the last race of the season, the end of all the hard work over a year. And even the track itself is quite interesting, although the layout has been changed for this year, making it overall a bit faster and more flowing, so I'm looking forward to seeing what effect that has on making overtaking easier.


    "The weekend also marks the end of an era as it is the last time we race with these cars, the ones I've known since I started in F1, before the very big change to the technical rules comes in for next year, with new wheel sizes and a completely new look and design for the cars. So, it would be nice to end what has been a very good year for the team on a high note, showing a strong performance at the final race."


    Yuki Tsunoda: "The Saudi Arabia track definitely produced the exciting race everyone had predicted, even if my own Sunday did not go as well as it should have done. I really loved driving that track, with the high speeds and the walls so close. In the race I had quite good pace, but I should have been more patient in trying to overtake Vettel. It's another lesson to learn from this rookie season, but overall, I am quite pleased with my driving at the moment.

    "As for Abu Dhabi, I have never raced there, but I have driven the Yas Marina track before in a Formula 1 car when I took part in the Young Driver Test at the end of last year. I still remember that test very well. I had driven an F1 car before, but never the current car from that actual season. It was very exciting for me, especially the first time out of the garage.


    "But actually, there will be new things to learn this year for everyone, as they have made quite big changes to the track layout to try and make overtaking easier. My first impression is that it's now a much faster and more flowing layout and so it will be interesting to see what effect that has on tyre wear for example, as that used to be a consideration in the past. Even if the track will be very different, I still feel as though I know what it is like from my past experience there. It should be easier to adapt, so I plan to maximise the opportunity and score as many points as possible. It will be the last time I am racing as a rookie, so I plan to enjoy my last race with this status and see if we can finish the season on a high."

    Abu Dhabi GP: Preview - Red Bull

    Last year's Abu Dhabi GP was a successful one for you last year, do you think we have good chances heading into the race this weekend?

    Max Verstappen: First of all I'm excited to be back in Abu Dhabi! Last year is not always a good reference in terms of result as there were multiple factors that contributed to it. We've been lacking a bit of pace for the past few races but hopefully that won't be the case this weekend.


    Can you talk us through the changes to the circuit and how you think it might impact our performance?

    MV: The Yas Marina Circuit has had a few changes and the track is much faster now. It's going to be interesting to see how it will affect the setup of the car. It's very important to have a good qualifying in Abu Dhabi so hopefully we can make that happen.


    How do you feel heading into the last race of the season? It has been an epic battle so far.

    MV: We've had a lot of wins and good moments this year, and we've been a lot more competitive in general, compared to the years before. So as a Team, we can be very pleased and proud of what we have achieved this season. We are level on points and I know that we as a Team are going to give it all to win this Championship. This is going to be an exciting race and we want to finish the season in the best way possible.


    There was clearly pace in the RB16B during qualifying at the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix. How confident did you feel with the car and its performance there before your DNF?

    Sergio Perez: We had good pace in Jeddah but unfortunately, we were not able to capitalise on it during the race and the weekend. We were really unlucky with the red flag there and the rest wasn't an ideal day but we will keep pushing and we will not give up.


    The track has been updated in Abu Dhabi with changes in the first sector, a new banked curve and adjustments to Turns 17 -20 to create a faster, flowing end to the lap. What effect do you expect this to have?

    SP: Yes, the track layout has changed quite a bit since last season, it has become a lot faster than before so it will be interesting to see how every single car copes with it. I am looking forward to getting out there on Friday to drive it for myself.


    Both Championships will be decided at the final race of the season this weekend, have you ever seen a year like this in Formula One?

    It has been a great season, for the fans and for the Team. We have pushed ourselves to the maximum, we have given it our all and we will continue to do so until the last lap.


    You're coming to the end of your first season with Red Bull Racing Honda, how do you sum it up?

    SP: It has been a hectic first year with Red Bull Racing Honda! I finally feel at home with the Team and I am looking forward to achieving more together next season. We have everything in place to start on the right foot in 2022 and I hope it will be a successful year for the Team.

    Abu Dhabi GP: Preview - Aston Martin

    Lance: "This weekend will be my 100th Grand Prix in Formula One; and, as it's the final race of the year, it would be perfect to celebrate with a good result to end the campaign on a high. We've learned a lot this season that will help the team in the future, but we still want to make the most of every lap on the new layout in Abu Dhabi and aim for points."


    Seb: There's been significant change to the Yas Marina Circuit, so it will be like going to another new track this weekend. We can expect much faster lap-times, and it will be interesting to see the knock-on effect to the tyres and strategy, as well as the changes we'll need to make to car set-up. Once again, we're aiming to end the season on a high with some good points."


    Keys to the Race
    Teams often attempt to make a one-stop strategy work, but Pirelli has allocated the softest range (C3, C4 and C5) for the fifth time this season, so high degradation is expected. The difficulty in overtaking, as well as a higher-than-average pitlane time loss of 23 seconds, previously made a two-stop sub-optimal, but changes to the circuit may increase degradation and improve overtaking and could now make a two-stopper more viable.

    The new circuit changes are not only a challenge for the drivers, but also the teams. With higher speeds and wider apexes leading to faster lap-times, evaluating the impact upon the cars and strategy will also be a crucial focus of the three practice sessions - even though FP1 and FP3 are held in warmer, less representative conditions.


    The layout changes are expected to improve overtaking. On the old layout, there were 30 passes in 2020, 32 in 2019 and 28 in 2018 - and 79% of all passes occurred along the two back straights, into Turns Eight and 11. In those previous three races, 70% of all overtakes used DRS - even despite 2019's event featuring significant DRS issues.

    Abu Dhabi GP: Preview - Ferrari

    This weekend sees the 22nd and final round of the 2021 Formula 1 season. Scuderia Ferrari Mission Winnow is currently third in the Constructors' classification, 38.5 points ahead of McLaren. At the previous race, Charles Leclerc got ahead of Lando Norris in the fight for fifth in the Drivers' standings, a battle that is set to continue as they are separated by just four points. As for Carlos Sainz, he is now only 4.5 behind Norris and 8.5 behind Charles, coming off the back of a run of 14 consecutive top ten finishes, an achievement beaten only by Max Verstappen. Scuderia Ferrari will be tackling the final race of the season with a smile on its face, but with its usual determination to get the best possible result. The 13th running of the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix takes place, as usual, at the Yas Marina circuit, although its layout has been given a radical makeover, aimed at making the racing more spectacular.


    The track. Three sections of the track have been modified. At the end of the first sector, gone is the slow chicane at the end of the straight that led into the first hairpin. Instead, cars will be flat out down the straight to the hairpin, which has been widened and should present more overtaking opportunities. The second more substantial change comes at the adverse camber corner at the end of the second long straight. The left-right-left chicane sequence and the 90 degree left that followed have been replaced with a long 180 degree corner that is more open and flowing and slightly banked. This should offer more racing lines and greater overtaking chances. There are also some changes in the final part of the lap. Lap times should therefore be significantly quicker, partly down to opening the radius of the right angle corners in the third sector, an area where historically, track limits could be a problem.

    Abu Dhabi GP: Preview - Alpine

    Alpine F1 Team heads into the final round of the 2021 FIA Formula 1 World Championship in Abu Dhabi, with fifth position in the Constructors' Standings firmly within its grasp. Alpine CEO Laurent Rossi, discusses the finale coming up this weekend and reflects on what has been a solid first season for the team, which has seen its fair share of positives ahead of a new dawn in Formula 1 next year.


    What are the objectives for Alpine heading into the final round in Abu Dhabi?

    Laurent Rossi: It's quite simple for us, the objective is to secure fifth place in the championship. We might have a good points advantage over Alpha Tauri, but as we've seen this year anything can happen in Formula 1. All it takes is one big points swing, so we won't be celebrating anything until we know it's final. Despite the positives, we must also be quite harsh on ourselves and accept that fifth place is not where we want to be finishing any season. We have targets and goals in mind for the following seasons and we need to build on this year to make sure Alpine is up there and where it belongs in the future.


    What are your reflections on the 2021 season as a whole?

    LR: I think 2021 has seen the team show tremendous consistency in what has been more or less a carryover from 2020, with respect to the cars and regulations. We've finished in the points in all but two races so far this year and I think we have to be quite pleased with that outcome. We can also look back proudly on the team's, and Esteban's first win in Formula 1 in Hungary, and of course the podium for Fernando more recently in Qatar. We've shown great focus and determination and I think we earned these results on merit during a difficult year. It's not all been positives and it's important we take our learnings from this year into the coming seasons. It's not only about focusing on the rule changes for 2022 but it's the years that follow too. Formula 1 is viscous, and if you don't progress continually, you can quickly fall behind. We need to firstly end our season strongly in Abu Dhabi, have a good winter programme and enter next year with maximum focus.


    The whole team has displayed some incredible moments of teamwork this year, tell us a little about that?

    LR: I think what we've shown this year, on and off the track, teamwork is what drives us forward and it's what we're all about. We do things our way, and sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. The team spirit runs through the DNA of the factories in Enstone and Viry, and now Dieppe too. It's culminated into the results we've seen at the track between our two drivers. They have great respect for one another, and I can't think of many other driver pairings who have shown the togetherness our two guys have demonstrated this year. You only have to think back to when Fernando defended hard for Esteban in Hungary, and then a somewhat reversing of the roles in Qatar just a few weeks ago to repay the favour. We're building a good team and we need to keep developing this atmosphere on this exciting journey.



    Just one tenth of a second was the difference between a third career visit to the Formula 1 podium for Esteban Ocon in Saudi Arabia. The Frenchman drove courageously on the Jeddah streets to take fourth place and a valuable 12 points. Now, Esteban is determined to finish the season strongly at the season finale in Abu Dhabi this weekend.


    After coming so close to a podium, what's your feeling after the race?

    Esteban Ocon: It's a strange feeling for me leaving Saudi Arabia for Abu Dhabi. I'm so proud of what we achieved in the race with fourth place but, at the same time, there's the slight disappointment at not taking a trophy there with us. We gave it everything we had and it was not enough, unfortunately, to take third. After the race, we discovered some quite significant damage to the floor during the final couple of laps, which explains some of the performance loss and maybe why we missed out by such a small margin.

    There are so many positives from the race and, as a team, we can be very proud. We raced well, we made the right decisions at the right times and gave ourselves the best chance to score big points, which are so important for the championship. There's still one final push and I'll be fighting until the end to finish this season as best as I can.


    What do you like about the season-ending Abu Dhabi Grand Prix?

    EO: In my entire Formula 1 career so far, Abu Dhabi has always been the final race of the season. There's a unique buzz around the paddock for the whole weekend as the season draws to a close with championship places still up for grabs. It's another night race, which is becoming more and more regular now in Formula 1. They are always enjoyable as it gives you a different sensation of speed under the lights. What's different this year with Abu Dhabi is the track changes. There are effectively some new corners to learn, which changes the shape of the lap. It'll be interesting to see what this will do to benefit racing. Hopefully it means there will be some more overtaking opportunities on race day, so let's see.


    What are your memories from racing at Yas Marina?

    EO: I've had some memorable races in Abu Dhabi in the past. In 2015, it's where I won the GP3 Series. Also, I had my first proper taste for Formula 1 when I drove for the team in FP1 back in 2014. Last year's race was a fun one, which went right to the end. We were battling for the points and on the final lap, I guess the final lap of the racing season actually, I managed to make a pass on my friend Lance [Stroll] for ninth place, which was great. The aim this year is to be in the mix for higher scoring points, like in Saudi Arabia, and hopefully we can make some similar moves on the way!


    Fernando Alonso heads to Abu Dhabi after a challenging Saudi Arabian Grand Prix that saw him finish thirteenth. The Spaniard will refocus for the final round and look to sign his comeback season off in style to help steer Alpine to a fifth-place finish in the constructors' championship.


    What are your takeaways from last weekend's first ever race in Jeddah?

    Fernando Alonso: It was probably a very exciting race to watch for the fans but it was very stressful in the cockpit! The race was full of incidents and luck played its role in the outcome and unfortunately, we ended up on the unlucky side this time. We pitted during the first Safety Car and had everything fallen into place for us we'd maybe have restarted our race in fifth or sixth. The red flag basically ended our race and made it very difficult to get back into the points after a very positive start. Esteban did well and scored some valuable points in the championship though, and he was so close to another podium for the team, so there are many positives we can take from the weekend.


    The track in Abu Dhabi has been revised, what are your expectations of the new layout?

    FA: I think it's been clear for a while that the circuit is quite difficult to overtake on and hopefully these changes can make the difference. It's a shame when a title deciding race is tough to overtake on, but it's a good track to race on and if there can be more overtaking it'll naturally make it more exciting for us drivers and everybody watching. We like racing in Abu Dhabi and I am curious to see if it will change anything. I'm always keen for trialling new circuit layouts, so let's see on Sunday.


    You're in contention for the award for the most overtakes this season, is there one move that stands out for you this year?

    FA: We've had some fun battles out there and with Sebastian and Kimi too who are also in contention for this award. Maybe we can have our own mini race on Sunday and see who gets the most overtakes. When I look back perhaps the overtake on Pierre Gasly in Qatar was the best as it set us up for the podium nicely and I was determined to make a good start. Then there was also the move on Carlos (Sainz) in Zandvoort which was very enjoyable. I was fully committed to that move knowing how tough it was to make a manoeuvre at that track. It was also towards the end of the race, so I approached it a little like it was all or nothing. The Sprint Race at Silverstone made for some nice moves, and also Portimão was enjoyable, as the car came alive in the race and we had some fun there. Being able to overtake is a huge part in what makes Formula 1 exciting, and hopefully we see a positive trend next year with the new cars and regulations.

    Abu Dhabi GP: Preview - Pirelli

    The longest-ever Formula 1 season concludes with its 22nd race, the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. After two new venues in Qatar and Saudi Arabia, the Yas Marina circuit is a more familiar challenge - although the track has been quite significantly modified this year. Nonetheless, based on simulation and other data, the same tyre compounds have been nominated as in 2020: the C3 as the P Zero White hard, C4 as the P Zero Yellow medium, and C5 as the P Zero Red soft.


    The changes to the track, which have been designed to provide more overtaking opportunities, will increase speeds and loads through some corners. However, as the circuit will still be smooth, with average stress on the tyres in terms of wear and degradation, the three softest compounds in the P Zero range remain a suitable choice.


    Track Characteristics
    Several changes have been introduced to the circuit layout, which was previously unaltered since its debut in 2009. Early in the lap, the chicane that formed Turns 5 and 6 will be bypassed with a straight. The following hairpin has been brought forward and widened, increasing the speed carried onto the subsequent straight. A long and slightly banked turn has been created to replace the technical complex of corners (Turns 11-14) that existed previously. Near the end of the lap, the four tight corners that route the track around the Yas Marina hotel (Turns 17-20) have all been opened up and made faster.

    These changes have shortened the circuit by 273 metres, which means the race distance has been increased from 55 to 58 laps and lap times will fall by an estimated 14 seconds.


    As usual, the race will begin just before sunset and run into darkness, with track temperatures falling quite quickly: in turn affecting tyre behaviour. FP2 and qualifying are the only two relevant sessions, with the other two free practices run in the heat of the day.


    Last year's winning strategy, with the same tyre nomination, was a medium to hard one-stopper: the same tactic used by all the top three. Only three drivers stopped more than once, and it was the sixth consecutive time that the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix had been won from pole.


    There will be two days of post-season testing on Tuesday and Wednesday after the grand prix. On both days teams will be able to test the new 18-inch 2022 tyres, while they have to choose just one of the two days for the test dedicated to young drivers using 13-inch tyres.


    Mario Isola: "The Yas Marina circuit is a familiar venue for the final race of the year, but the modifications to the track will provide a new twist and promises to give us an exciting conclusion to what has been a thrilling season. This will be the first time we face the new configuration, including some areas with new asphalt, but we have been able to rely on simulations and other information in advance to prepare. In general, with the creation of some quicker turns, the track is now faster and with more overtaking opportunities. The result of these changes are bigger vertical loads, especially on the front tyres. But we don't expect the overall severity for the tyres to change significantly, which is why we've nominated the softest tyres in the range.

    After the race, the teams will have the chance to test with the final specification of 18-inch tyres for 2022 using mule cars. The first time we'll see the definitive package of new tyres with 2022 cars in action will be during pre-season testing next year at the end of February."
