As the conclusion of the 2023 Formula 1 season approaches, we all know the season finale will be hosted by the Yas Marina Circuit in the United Arab Emirates’ capital of Abu Dhabi.

The two geography enthusiasts discuss their ideal season finales, the merits of Abu Dhabi vs other venues, and try to reach a compromise regarding where to move the finale in a perfect world.
