When is the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix 2018?

There’s no doubt the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix is one of the UAE’s favourite annual sporting spectacles.

For one weekend each year, the world’s eyes are on our amazing city for the 21st and final race in the Formula One calendar.

Reigning World Drivers' Championship winner Lewis Hamilton will join the likes of Sebastian Vettel, Fernando Alonso and Kimi Räikkönen on the grid at Yas Marina Circuit this November.

And that’s without even mentioning the galaxy of stars who come to visit – as well as those who come to perform.

This year, the Abu Dhabi GP takes place at 5.10pm UAE time on Sunday, November 25.

You'll want to get that date in your diary now, underlined and circled in red.

It is already shaping up to be a classic, with a dramatic F1 season giving every indication of serving up a thrilling finale.

The Welcome To The Jungle icons are joined by Oscar winner Sam Smith and Canadian crooner The Weeknd on a star-studded billing across the four-day festival.

And last but not least, we have Better Now singer/rapper Post Malone completing the star-studded line-up.

His concert in Abu Dhabi will be held on Thursday November 22 and will open this year’s Abu Dhabi Grand Prix weekend.
