Abu Dhabi Grand Prix confirmed to take place this December

It’s one of the highlights of the year for many, so we’re delighted to confirm the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix is taking place this year in December.

The Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix 2020 will take place on Sunday, December 13.

And while it will be closed to fans, it’ll still be the season-closing race meaning there’s a lot to race for. Although perhaps not up front where Lewis Hamilton looks on course to break the record books again!

His win in Spain gave him 156 podium finishes, beating the previous record held by Schumacher. And he’s just three wins from Schumacher’s all-time record of wins.

Four races in three countries

The final four races of the season will take place in Turkey, Bahrain and the UAE. The Turkish Grand Prix on November 15 marks the first race in Istanbul for nine years.

The tour then moves to two back-to-back races a week apart in Bahrain on November 29 and December 6. And the season will then climax on December 13 at Abu Dhabi’s Yas Marina track.

There were plans to race in Vietnam and China, but the races have had to be cancelled.

It’ll be the first time since the F1 championship launched in 1950 that no races have taken part in America or South America.
