Formula 1® launches Food Fest at Abu Dhabi Grand Prix

Formula 1 is excited to announce the launch of F1 Food Fest ahead of the FORMULA 1 ETIHAD AIRWAYS ABU DHABI GRAND PRIX 2019. F1 Food Fest is a celebration of all the incredible cuisines from across the F1 race calendar and will incorporate well-known national dishes at selected races in 2020.

Working with our race promoters, food and beverage areas at F1 Fan Zones will be transformed into a food haven, hosting a variety of food stations from across all 22 races. Vendors at each location from across the world will source locally relevant foods from the different locations F1 race in, and provide an authentic and delicious experience for fans.

Ticket holders can also take part in the ultimate food tasting competition, by logging their food experience in an F1 Food Fest passport, and submitting their log of activity to @F1 on Twitter and Instagram using #F1FoodFest. Fans who sample the most cuisines will be entered into an exclusive competition, with a chance to win exclusive money-can’t-buy prizes.

For the FORMULA 1 ETIHAD AIRWAYS ABU DHABI GRAND PRIX 2019 Food Fest Stations will serve 21 cuisines reflecting the 21 race calendar this year. In 2020 Formula 1 will race in the following 22 countries, all of which will be represented by the F1 Food Fest stations throughout the season:

Australia Great Britain
Bahrain Hungary
Vietnam Belgium
China Italy
Netherlands Singapore
Spain Russia
Mexico Japan
