Another sellout crowd is likely for this year's Formula One season finale in Abu Dhabi.

Last year, the impressive Yas Marina venue, with a capacity of only 50,000, sold out for the inaugural race.

According to the race organisers, about 90 per cent of the tickets for the 2010 championship finale in mid November have been sold.

Abu Dhabi Motorsport Management said the tickets are selling faster than they did last year.

"It may be a title decider and with the concerts and the event itself, it is very popular," said commercial director Stephen Umfreville.

The performers for the music concerts are Prince, Kanye West and Linkin Park.

"We can't say when it will sell out but it will," Umfreville added.
