This is the 22nd race, the grand finale of the 2023 Formula 1 season. We’re sticking to the traditional weekend format, just like old times.

Now, let’s talk about the Sunday Night Party. Remember last weekend? The race was on a Saturday night, under the bright lights of Las Vegas. This time, we’re back to the ‘normal timetable’.

The race in Abu Dhabi starts around sunset. It’s a bit earlier than the usual European season, but hey, who doesn’t love a good sunset race?

Now, let’s rewind a bit. The race last weekend was on a Saturday. And guess what? The next two races, kicking off the 2024 season, are also on Saturdays. The Bahrain and Saudi Arabian Grands Prix have been moved to Saturday. Why, you ask? Well, it’s because of Ramadan.

Alright, let’s get down to the nitty-gritty. On Friday, November 24th, we’ve got Practice 1 from 9:30 – 10:30 and Practice 2 from 13:00 – 14:00.

Moving on to Saturday, November 25th. Practice 3 is from 10:30 – 11:30. Then we’ve got Qualifying from 14:00 – 15:00.

And then, the big day. Sunday, November 26th. The Abu Dhabi Grand Prix is happening from 13:00 – 15:00. Mark your calendars, folks. It’s going to be a wild ride.
