Abu Dhabi 2009 - Schedule // Previewing the brand new Yas Marina race to send off the season

Published by Christine

Yas Marina

It's the last race of the year, then, and we are heading to the brand new Yas Marina Circuit. Thoughts of the upcoming track seem mixed, and now is the moment of truth.

Here are your final two schedules for 2009, with the first indicating when the BBC broadcasting will begun, which in turn dictates when the live commenting threads will appear. The second table is our podcast schedule, which is slightly more flexible.

TV schedule

It is an evening race in Abu Dhabi which equates to a regularly scheduled race here in the UK (all times GMT).
