Roll to the F1 Grand Prix Abu Dhabi in style this year!

Entering its fifth year, The FORMULA 1 ETIHAD AIRWAYS ABU DHABI GRAND PRIX is back on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd of November. The dates are set, flights & hotels are booked, plans are arranged and the Yas Marina Circuit is ready to stand out again with one of the Middle East’s biggest and most exciting weekends of the year! It looks like the F1 after race activities will rock till the latest hours of the night!!


You must have planned your activities by now…but have you thought of your rides?


The last thing anyone would want to plan with all the excitement and adrenaline rush the F1 causes every year is how to get around Yas island knowing that EVERYONE wants to get around too! Well the difference this year is that UBER has found its way to the Middle East to spread #UberLove and its first stop was Dubai.

So why not be as stylish as it can get by just tapping a button and getting yourself a stylish ride to and from Yas island! It can’t be easier than that, seriously! The last thing anyone would want is to call a taxi, wait to find it (that is if it even arrives), explain roads, get lost and so on. With Uber it’s simple, the app does pretty much everything you wouldn’t want to do during this big weekend from finding drivers to locating roads.


So here are a couple things you might like to know and share with other Uber peeps you know:

1. FLAT RATE: We’ve introduced a flat rate of 500 AED to or from Yas Island (one way)

2. SPLIT FARE: If you’re going to or from Yas Island with friends simply:

•    Select the “Split Fare” option on your app

•    Choose the people you’re travelling with (they must have the Uber app as well)

•    Accept the split fare and that’s it! Your fare will be divided 2, 3, or 4 ways.


Whether you are a hardcore F1 fan or simply looking to be part of the Middle East’s premier social and sporting weekend you can certainly rely on Uber and focus on the fun. Just don’t forget to bring your parking passes to avoid entry hassles to Yas!

We hope you enjoy the F1 Weekend.


Uber on with love!!
