What can I see?
Located on a hairpin turn, North grandstand offers a unique experience, with extensive views of the circuit. Thanks in part to the flat geography of the circuit, from here you will be able to see the cars take the tight hairpin turn, then speed straight onto the longest straight of the circuit. Overtaking opportunities abound in close view, as further down the straight the first DRS zone begins.
North Premium tickets will be allocated in the central zones of the grandstands (Section 5 to Section 9), offering unparalleled views of the hairpin.
What do I get with my ticket?
You will have a reserved seat in the North grandstand, as well as access to the Oasis areas, where you can purchase food and beverages, as well as available merchandise. Your ticket will also include general admission access to the after-race concerts for every day that it is valid. Furthermore, this is the closest grandstand to the du Arena, where the concerts will take place every evening, making for easy walking access.

We had seats in North stand block 9 which were great so thats first good point. Thursday pit walk was very good, having pit open for many hours meant no rush to get in and could spend as long as you like, busy around top 3 teams as you would expect but really one of best pit walks we've been to. Entertainment zone was OK, but would say Bahrain and Baku we have been to had more going on. Food was better than many GP, but of course not cheap as you expect. It was a little annoying to have to go out of circuit and back in through security if you wanted to get to and from fanzone, but to be honest the shuttle bus and the in and out was still quicker then if you could walk it, so seemed a bit tiresome at first but no big issue. Friday practice, qualy and race day all good and of course busier each day. The Yas pay cards is a good idea, but long queue to get any money back left on cards at end, we only had 5 Dhm left so just gave to somebody in queue with more patience than us !! Evening entertainment in Du Arena was very good, its a huge arena but its seperate to circuit and does not accept Yas pay cards which we knew about but was still a bit of a pain. Circuit shuttles good except coming back after gigs if parked in Yas mall, we just walked back its about 20mins (if you go right way which we did not one night) if you are in North zone shuttle from Mall goes right to far end of circuit before it drops you back about 15mins later. It would be better to have a stop by North stand on other side of road and let you cross over. Overall it was a good experience but of GP I have been to I would rate Baku best for whole thing. Bahrain was better entertainment. But better overall than European GP's I would say. Of course the race itself can be good or bad, this was unfortunately not the most exciting race, with no close racing or incidents, I guess nobody really had much to fight for so was a bit processional, but thats how it goes I guess. We stayed in Dubai marina and drove down each day, its a very easy drive on a motorway with between 7 and 4 lanes all the way. an easy 1hr drive, so worth considering staying in Dubai if hotels are booked or pricey in Abu Dhabi. I would return, but there are other GP i would go to ahead of this one I think.
