The Abu Dhabi Grand Prix is the final race in the Formula One season. The FIA organizers chose Abu Dhabi for its mild climate. With an average December temperature of 20.5ºC (69ºF), it should come as no surprise. This year, the race will run on November 20th, 2022 at 08:00 EST at the Yas Marina circuit. Abu Dhabi is one of the newest Formula One circuit races, having just been built 13 years ago. There are various different coverage options to watch the race, some are free, others are not. If you want to watch the race for free or perhaps in a different language, you could do so by using a VPN.
Earlier, we mentioned the newness of the Yas Marina circuit. It becomes obvious pretty quickly that this course and race environment are designed to maximize the racing experience. The Architects designed the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix to be a festival experience. The track is located on an island, and the rest of the island does a good job of lending itself to the entertainment atmosphere.
Just to make things interesting, this final race may break the tie between Lewis “King Lewie” Hamilton and the Flying Dutchman, Max Verstappen. Both drivers are tied at 369.5 points for the season. This year has been wild as these two drivers have battled each other. While some consider this season to be a changing of the guard (from Hamilton to Verstappen), Hamilton has shown that he definitely still has fight left in him. As dominant as he has been since he came on the scene, it is great to see him with real competion. Hamilton thinks so, too, because he was getting bored. After all the records he has broken, including being the only one in the Centurian Club (100 F1 victories) and others, you can’t blame him. You have to wonder what else there is to do for him. All he has left is the competiton.

The current field of rivals has a lot of talent. As with any motorsports race, there are several factors that come in to play. The first factor has to deal with the equipment. All the drivers in this group have money behind the team. That means they typically spare no expense in equipment. Another factor has to deal with experience. Lewis Hamilton has the experience, but Verstappen has come a long way. Whether or not he can overtake Hamilton to be the #1 driver in F1 history remains to be seen. However, he is well on his way. First, though, he has to get by the King himself. It is bound to be exciting.
