From legendary appearances to trackside yacht access and big-name concerts, here’s 5 reasons why you should choose F1 Experiences for your trip to the 2019 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix at Yas Marina Circuit.
Big Name Appearances
Formula 1 legends don’t come much more iconic than Alain Prost. The 4-time World Champion from France – known as “The Professor” for his clinical approach to driving – will be making a special guest appearance in the Champions Club Trackside Terrace at the 2019 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. Recently appointed to the board of directors at the Renault F1 Team, Prost will be joining us for a Q&A and meet-and-greet. Learn more about Alain Prost here.
Mark Webber will also be stopping by the Champions Club Trackside Yacht for a guest appearance. The retired Aussie driver, who won 8 times in Formula 1 with Red Bull, will join us on board the St. David to give us his take on the current state of Formula 1, and will also be available to sign autographs and pose for photos with our guests.
Last but not least, Kevin Magnussen will be the guest of honour for Friday evening’s Paddock Club Reception. The only Danish driver in Formula 1, Magnussen has driven for McLaren, Renault and Haas since his debut in 2014. He achieved his highest ever finish in the drivers’ championship last year, finishing 9th with 56 points. Get your Hero or Trophy Ticket Package for access.
Our stunning trackside superyacht this year is called the St David. Measuring 60 metres and featuring three decks where you can view the trackside action, the St David will be moored in a prime berth at Yas Marina. Built in 2008 and last refitted in 2017, the St David has a baroque style with mosaic floors, private nightclub and multiple seating areas. On board, our guests will be treated to the finest VIP hospitality with gourmet meals and open bars serving premium beverages. Secure a Champions Club Diamond Ticket Package for access
