Abu Dhabi Grand Prix FAQs

What are the best things to do in Abu Dhabi?

There are many incredible experiences to be had in this Middle Eastern jewel. Across the weekend, you'll have plenty of time to take in the beauty of Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, embark on a desert safari in the dunes and ride the world's fastest rollercoaster at Ferrari World Abu Dhabi on Yas Island, featuring a maximum speed of almost 150 miles per hour! There are endless dining experiences, the golden-sand Yas Beach and excellent golf courses too, including Yas Links.

Or, perhaps, you’d like us to sit in the driving seat, and fully tailor your entire holiday down to the finest detail – from further event access to chauffeured airport transfers and booking the most opulent hotels possible. We would also be delighted to organise things like private circuit transfers, tours of team garages and the finest dining experiences.

When will I receive my F1 tickets?

Your F1 tickets will be transferred to the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix App.

If you're attending the Grand Prix, you'll will need to download the app from Apple Store or Google Play Store. (The app contains a regenerative QR code, which must be shown at the circuit gate each day. Printouts and screenshots won't be accepted at the circuit.)

After you receive your ticket through the app, you'll need to log-in to the app with the email address provided to us on your pre-departure form.

The app will not only contain your F1 tickets for the weekend, but also a wealth of information about on and off track action over the weekend plus details on the concerts.

Once we have transferred your tickets, you'll receive an email from noreply@AbuDhabiGP.com advising that your tickets are now available in your app. If you haven’t already downloaded the app by this point, you'll be reminded in good time by our team. Then it's time to sit back, relax and wait for the day to come!

How will I get to the circuit?

We will arrange for your private transfer to pick you up from your hotel. The Marina Grandstand sits in front of a drop off point, where (if you've upgraded) you can easily access our Platinum Hospitality Suite ready for the race!

Who will I see at the 2024 Abu Dhabi concerts?

Muse is the first band to be announced for the 2024 Abu Dhabi concerts. As of yet, we're unsure of the rest of this year's line up, but if we're going off this exceptional act, we're looking forward to an impressive line up!

Acts are usually announced later in the season, so we'll keep our eyes peeled for more announcements for you. 

The concerts at this iconic event are one of the main attractions of the F1 and are not to be missed! As the largest outdoor venue in the Middle East, Etihad Park has excellent facilities to keep you entertained, including food trucks and bars serving alcohol.

Past performances from the likes of Beyoncé, Lionel Richie, Paul McCartney, Usher and Kings of Leon give you an idea of what to expect in 2024.

How will I select my seats?

We're experts in arranging F1 experiences, so we'll select the best Grandstand seats for you. Of course, if you're travelling with family and loved ones, we will ensure you all sit together. 

If you choose to watch the action from our Platinum Hospitality Suite, you'll be on our viewing balcony with fellow F1 fans drinking in Abu Dhabi's backdrop and drivers challenging the Yas Marina Circuit. (You'll still need to download the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix App for this option.)

What is the F1 Paddock Club?

Located above the team garages overlooking both the Pit Lane and the start/finish straight is the Abu Dhabi Formula 1 Paddock Club Hospitality. 

We can arrange premium access to the Paddock Club if you wish to enjoy it's many luxuries, which include a gourmet lunch, an all-day open bar serving Ferrari Trento, wine, beer, soft drinks and hot drinks, and Pit Lane walks.

With the Paddock Club access comes a variety of F1 themed entertainment, from F1 Simulators, F1 Pit Stop Challenge, F1 Ambassador appearances, and much more. You're entitled to Yasalam After-Race Concerts and even exclusive Paddock Club Circuit Truck Tour(s).

Alternatively, our Platinum Hospitality Suite is exclusive for guests of Spectate, offering inclusive food and drinks throughout and a private viewing balcony. Our team host our suite personally, and are ready to assist with any requests throughout the weekend.

Trustpilot reviews from our clients

We're proud of our 'excellent' score on Trustpilot. Take a look at some of the reviews our clients have left us following their Spectate experience.

"Abu Dhabi F1!"

"We have recently returned from a special surprise birthday present for my husband at F1 Abu Dhabi. The organisation of the trip from start to finish by Emma, with great product knowledge and attention to detail was superb, backed up by Jimmy and Simon in Abu Dhabi, who made our trip so smooth and special. Spectate Hospitality Suite was great, would highly recommend Spectate."

"Out of this world experience!"

"From the initial introduction to Spectate, we received outstanding service. This was a ‘bucket list want’ for myself and a special year for my husband and our male friend. We therefore pulled out all the stops and opted for business class flights with chauffeured transfers and a hospitality suite at the race track. What a great decision this was as the whole experience was out of this world. Our Spectate contact was Simon and what a credit to the company he is."

"F1 Grand Prix Abu Dhabi – ‘that race!’"

"We had a fantastic time in Abu Dhabi for the F1 Grand Prix and could not recommend Spectate enough. The whole trip was organised exceptionally, down to being met at the airport and fast tracked through to baggage claim, private transfer to the hotel and even arranging the clinic for PCR testing in Abu Dhabi."

"Abu Dhabi Grand Prix"

"Went to the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix with Spectate, the most amazing trip! Have done a few F1 trips in 2022 organized by other tour operators but Abu Dhabi was the best one by far. From the moment the booking was confirmed until we left Abu Dhabi the experience was absolutely amazing."

"Abu Dhabi F1"

"My first F1 experience and what an unforgettable experience. Spectate arranged everything from start to finish and nothing was too much trouble for them. Very efficient, professional and organised."
