If the UAE is famous for its’ hellish hot weather, this weekend will heat up the ground to the maximum (honestly, I can even feel that smell of burning rubber). Final Round of Grand Prix 2017 now takes place in the city, where desert borders with Persian Gulf, Abu Dhabi. No wonder, betting sites in the UAE are excited about this race, so don’t miss a chance to bet on one of the bookies’ favorite drivers at Abu Dhabi GP!
Yas Marina Circuit (5.55 km) – one of the jewels in Abu Dhabi’s crown. The first Formula One twighlight race ever (thanks to powerful lighting ensuring a seamless transition from day to night) hosted the first Arabian GP race on November 1, 2009.

Bookies’ Favorite Drivers at Abu Dhabi GP: Insider
- First grand prix: 2009
- Number of laps: 55
- Circuit length: 5.554 km
- Race distance: 305.355 km
- Lap record: 1:40.279 by SEBASTIAN VETTEL (2009)
Due to the Mercedes’ victory at the past three races at Yas Marina, Hamilton (6/5) will start as favorite to win at the track for a fourth time himself following his win with McLaren in 2011 and two with Mercedes in 2014 and 2016.
However, life is not a a fairy tale, and Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel (13/2), the guy who won two weeks ago in Brazil and four times overall this year) won’t let Hamilton relax. But even if Sebastian is usually quicker than Lewis, Vettel is really good at making mistakes, so Hamilton is more likely to win, so if you’re going to bet on the fastest lap, Hamilton is a good option.
I won’t fail to mention Max Verstappen, who has won two of the past five races for Red Bull Racing, and the first and third sectors of the lap at Yas Marina should play to the strengths of the Austrian team’s car.
If you visit Unibet Sportsbook or any other betting sites in the UAE, you’ll find Fernando Alonso amongst the top 10. Fernando Alonso Díaz is a Spanish Formula One racing driver and a double World Champion who is currently racing for McLaren-Honda.

He is often regarded as one of the greatest Formula One drivers in the history of the sport. It’s unsurprisingly why he has his quite strong 75/1 .
If Hamilton’s teammate, Valtteri Bottas (7/2) wants to take second in the championship, ha has to win in Abu Dhabi Grand Prix 2017 and make Vettel finish ninth at least.
