The epic season finale in Abu DhabiThe epic season finale in Abu Dhabi
YAS MARINA CIRCUIT
The Yas Marina Circuit is the only circuit in Abu Dhabi and built on the Yas Island. The Abu Dhabi Grand Prix made its debut on the Formula 1 calendar in 2009 and never left its spot. The £800m circuit is one of the most technologically-advanced Formula 1 circuits in the world. The circuit contains some very interesting parts like turn 7, the hairpin that ends with a long straight where the cars can reach speeds of over 310km/h and the entire third sector with a lot of challenging corners.
The Abu Dhabi Grand Prix traditionally is the last race of the season. In 2018, we said farewell to our Formula One drivers Fernando Alonso and Stoffel Vandoorne at this very special race.
The Abu Dhabi Grand Prix is generally a race that attracts fans from all over the world. We want to unite the McLaren fans by giving them access to the official McLaren Grandstand.
The McLaren Grandstand is located at the North grandstand of the Yas Marina Circuit. Located on a hairpin turn, the McLaren Grandstand offers a unique experience, with extensive views of the circuit. Thanks to the flat geography of the circuit, from here you will be able to see the cars take the tight hairpin turn, then speed straight onto the longest straight of the circuit. Overtaking opportunities abound in close view, as further down the straight the first DRS zone begins. Support Lando Norris and Carlos Sainz live from the McLaren Grandstand and enjoy a great atmosphere together with hundreds of McLaren fans from across the world.
Joining the McLaren Grandstand gives you access to exclusive McLaren content and amazing prizes to win.
