The 21st and final stop on this year’s Formula One world tour is the Yas Marina Circuit on Yas Island, for the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. In all honesty, there isn’t a lot at stake, with Lewis Hamilton having already wrapped up the Championship, teammate Valtteri Bottas − who has to start at the back of the grid on Sunday − having secured second place and Mercedes having captured their sixth consecutive Constructors’ Championship. However, this will be the final F1 action of 2019, and I’m just hoping for some more fireworks from Ferrari’s dynamic duo.
Our guide explains how to catch this weekend’s Abu Dhabi Grand Prix action, including channels and UK times for practice races, qualifying and, of course, the main event. Plus, how to live stream everything, no matter where in the world you are.

If you’re abroad at the moment, and worried that you might not be able to access Sky Go, a common workaround is to use a VPN. If you’re not familiar with VPNs, they encrypt and anonymise your internet use and, crucially, can also allow you to appear as if you’re in a completely different country.
