Full capacity crowd at Formula 1 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix

ABU DHABI, October 24, 2021

Organisers of the Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix 2021 have announced that this season’s final race will see a return to full capacity at Yas Marina Circuit, as fans anticipate the conclusion of this year’s championship.
Aligned with the latest government regulations, capacity at Yas Marina Circuit has increased allowing for a full-capacity crowd to get in on the action taking place from December 9-12. Children under the age of 12 will now also be permitted to attend events during the race week, including the Pit Lane Walk, allowing families to enjoy the action together. 
New tickets are available across the categories including one-day tickets and the circuit’s hospitality packages to attend the four-day event, according to a statement from the organisers.
The race action will showcase motorsport’s stars, including Lewis Hamilton, Max Verstappen, Valterri Bottas, Lando Norris among others, as they take on the reconfigured track for the first time. Modifications have been made to set up more dramatic racing and increased opportunities for overtaking, offering fans an enhanced spectacle. 
Abu Dhabi Motorsports Management CEO Al Tareq Al Ameri said: “I think I can safely say we are thrilled that the latest update in government regulations allows us to safely return to full capacity at the venue and announce that additional tickets are now on sale. 
“We look forward to welcoming back fans for a fantastic weekend of sport and entertainment at Yas Marina Circuit. The boost in spectators to be a full crowd present on race day will play a special role in creating the atmosphere and buzz we have come to associate with the event.
“We will continue to work closely with Formula 1 and all stakeholders to ensure relevant safety procedures are implemented to guarantee the safety of everybody present, including the requirement for all in attendance to be vaccinated and present a Green Pass on the Al Hosn app.” 
Combining top level motorsport with entertainment, fans attending this year’s event can look forward to the return of the Yasalam After-Race concerts produced by Flash Entertainment. Grammy nominated artists, Khalid and Lewis Capaldi are the first to be announced in a line-up of four AAA artists, performing at Etihad Park on Thursday and Saturday, respectively.
In line with the increased capacity, fans can experience the full weekend at Yas Marina Circuit with multiple categories for ticket purchases and hospitality packages to gain access to the entertainment line-up. 
All ticketholders will have access to the Thursday concert, headlined by Khalid; in addition, single-day ticketholders will also have access to the day they have an Abu Dhabi Grand Prix ticket for; two-day ticketholders will have access to the Saturday and Sunday concerts as well as the Thursday, and those with three-day tickets will be able to access all nights of After-Race entertainment.
A Yasalam After-Race concert ticket must be activated by entering Yas Marina Circuit for the Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix on the day ticketholders are attending the concert. 
Fans can also look forward to a preview of the 2022 F1 car, while the Grand Prix will celebrate the UAE’s 50th anniversary through a series of activations in the various entertainment zones, as well as Heritage Village.
With the latest government guidelines allowing for the return of spectators, ticketholders will be able to experience the full venue across the weekend, including the return of the Pit Lane Walk as well as an option for Paddock Club members to gain access on Wednesday too.
Flash Entertainment CEO John Lickrish said: “The return to full capacity is wonderful news and is testament to Abu Dhabi’s rapid, co-ordinated response to the pandemic and a progressive approach to recovery. We can’t wait to bring an exciting weekend of world-class sport and live entertainment. 
"With Khalid and Lewis Capaldi already confirmed, the final two AAA artists will be announced soon adding more excitement to the anticipated return of the much-loved Yasalam After-Race Concerts.”-TradeArabia News Service
