ABU DHABI F1 GP. It's time for the final duel! Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton meet again this weekend in Abu Dhabi for a final battle in the race for the world title. To be sure not to miss anything, here is the complete TV program of this Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.
[Updated December 10, 2021 at 4:15 p.m.] This time, there will be no escape, no more catching up, another twist at the next Grand Prix! "See you at the last corner", announces Canal at the dawn of this last GP of the season which sees Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton find themselves on equal points before the start in Abu Dhabi. After the last tense races, Lewis Hamilton has caught up, driven as much by dynamics as by the newfound performance of his Mercedes and an engine that is working wonders. Facing him, Max Verstappen showed a little tension but confirmed in Saudi Arabia that he was still just as formidable when it came to showing his teeth on the track. Long-awaited, this last race of the season is also contested on a redesigned circuit where several turns have been modified to facilitate overtaking and avoid a new purge on an Emirati circuit which has offered more beautiful Sunday siestas to F1 fans than to thrilling season finales. To not miss anything from this Abu Dhabi GP 2021, here is the complete program of the Grand Prix.
Qualifying will not be missed since the composition of the starting grid for this Abu Dhabi GP will have a direct impact on the start of the race. A pole position from Max Verstappen would put him in a strong position against a Lewis Hamilton forced to get ahead of him on the track on Sunday during the Grand Prix to win an 8th world championship title. The qualifying session will take place at dusk on the Yas Marina circuit and will be preceded by a final free practice session on Saturday morning.
The start of the Abu Dhabi GP will be given this Sunday, December 12 at 2 p.m. French time. This Grand Prix is in fact disputed at dusk at Yas Marina and ends at night in order to be contested at an optimal time on the European continent.
It is Canal which will broadcast the last Grand Prix of the season. The pay channel package is the exclusive broadcaster of F1 in France.
