Session times for the 2022 F1 Abu Dhabi GP

Find out when the 2022 Abu Dhabi GP takes place, including the F1 session times for practice, qualifying and the race


The final race of the 2022 F1 season is almost upon us, and with a few details left to sort out between teams and drivers, make sure you know all of the 2022 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix session times for the action at the Yas Marina.

The Yas Marina Circuit held its first Formula 1 Grand Prix back in 2009, and 5.281km track shot itself into the history books of F1 following the 2021 title decider between Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen

While we will be spared any such drama this time round, there is still lots to play for. Ferrari and Mercedes are going head-to-head for second place in the Constructors’ Championship, and will Verstappen let Sergio Perez past as he goes for second in the Driver Standings?

The 2022 Abu Dhabi GP will take place at the Yas Marina Circuit, with qualifying scheduled for 14:00 GMT (UK time) on Saturday, and the race at 13:00 GMT (UK time) on Sunday.

Who won the 2021 Abu Dhabi GP?

This seems like a pretty silly question given how the 2021 Abu Dhabi GP has gone down in F1 infamy.

Max Verstappen secured his first world title in controversial circumstances, overtaking Lewis Hamilton on the final lap of the race at Yas Marina following a late Safety Car. 

After Nicholas Latifi had put his Williams into the barriers, Hamilton and Mercedes, who had dominated the race up until that point, decided to stay out on their Medium tyres. 

Verstappen pitted and was on fresh Softs, but had a slew of back markers between his Red Bull and Hamilton. Race director Michael Masi decided to let only those lapped cars between Verstappen and Hamilton unlap themselves, and as they say, the rest is history.
