FORMULA 1 renews its contract with Abu Dhabi until 2030, according to a statement made on Thursday, December 9.

The announcement, which has been made ahead of the 2021 FIA Formula One World Championship race on Sunday, December 12, sees the continuation of the working contract with Abu Dhabi Motorsports Management (ADMM).

The Yas Marina Circuit, which held its first race in 2009, has been upgraded and will now see the likes of Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen race around the track for years to come.

Fans are excited about the new and improved layout, which sees changes to the north hairpin (Turn 7), the south marina (beginning at Turn 11), and the hotel section (beginning at Turn 17).

Speaking after the announcement, Stefano Domenicali, President and CEO of Formula 1, said: “We are delighted to confirm that we will be racing in Abu Dhabi until 2030 under this new agreement. We are hugely looking forward to the season finale this weekend when more Formula 1 history will be made.

“The promoter, ADMM, always creates an incredble show for the final race of every F1 season and combined with the changes made to improve the racing on the Yas Marina Circuit we are excited for many years of racing in Abu Dhabi that is ahead of us.”

Saif Al Noaimi, CEO of ADMM, said: “The Abu Dhabi Grand Prix and Yas Marina Circuit continue to introduce hundreds of millions of spectators and TV viewers to Abu Dhabi and the United Arab Emirates.

“The signing of a new multi-year deal with the Formula One Group not only represents the strength of our relationship but reaffirms our commitment to delivering an unparalleled and world-class race weekend experience for all visitors to enjoy.”
