Day 3, Saturday, was called Quali Saturday as there was the FIA F1 Qualifying Session from 5-6pm in the evening. I’ll be sharing photos of that, below in this post.

  1. FIA F2 First Race- 23 laps or 45 minutes + 1 lap (12:20-13:10)

The FIA F2 Second and Third Races were held after the Qualifying Session on Saturday and on Sunday respectively.

India’s Jehan Daruvala won the FIA F2 First Race followed by Brazil’s Felipe Drugovich and Australia’s Oscar Piastri.

If you’re wondering why I mention the sunset often in posts, it is because I really like taking photos of the setting sun at different stages. Another post of mine related to sunsets: https://memoriesthrulens.com/2021/01/18/shades-of-corniche-abu-dhabi-december-2020/

I was already excited for the next day as it would be the first time for me watching a F1 Grand Prix, but with everyone making predictions on who would be the next World Champion, it made me even more curious!!!

I think the next post is going to be the most expected one of this series, so don’t miss out on the next post! It would be the final write-up of the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix 2021 Series.
