As the Formula One world championship comes to its conclusion this weekend, there is also an interesting side plot on the entertainment side of things that's got everyone talking.

After their break-up earlier this year, Drake and Rihanna will likely be doing their best to avoid each other on Yas Island. The latter will headline the after-race concerts at Du Arena on Sunday night, while her Canadian ex is lined up for a performance at VIP Room one night earlier.

Adding some intrigue into the mix is the presence of RiRi's ex-boyfriend, rapper Travis Scott, who will take to the stage at Mad on the same night Drake is rocking the Marina.

And Time Out understands that, following reports in US media the pair are rekindling their romance, Rihanna could be joining the 24-year-old at the award-winning venue on Leisure Drive. Scott is one six big acts performing at the venue over four nights, with T-Pain, Rita Ora and Sean Paul having played to a packed crowd already, and Akon and Future still to come.

With all that, tickets are selling fast, and with our sources having told us plans are being made to host the Umbrella superstar, the rush is likely to be cranked up another notch.
