Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix 2022

The track debuted in 2009 as that year’s Formula 1 season finale, with Red Bull’s Sebastian Vettel winning from teammate Mark Webber. 

The Hermann Tilke-designed track is dominated by its 1.2km straight between Turns 5 and 6 – which, with slow-speed corners marking its beginning and end, makes it a honeypot for overtaking moves.

Other highlights include the tricky run through Turns 10 and 11 into 12, which forces the drivers to brake hard with bags of lateral load still on the car. The track was modified ahead of the 2021 race, which shortened the lap slightly to 5.28km.

This high downforce track will average 55 gear shifts per lap, is raced at 63% full throttle with 2 DRS Zones and a pit stop will cost, approximately, 22.0 seconds.
