Alongside the FIA champions, two trophies were presented for best promoter and best race broadcaster at the FIA Gala in Monaco.

The Race Promoters' Trophy went to Abu Dhabi Grand Prix for providing Formula One with a state-of-the-art circuit in a stunning setting and for organising the first-ever twilight race. The award was collected by His Excellency Abdulla Khouri, Board Member of the Yas Marina Circuit.

His Excellency Abdulla Khouri said:

"I'm honoured to receive this trophy on behalf of the Yas Marina Circuit and the many organisations and people back in Abu Dhabi who were involved in organising the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. I thank all of those who supported us and helped to make our event such a success, which led to receiving this prize here in Monaco."

The twilight concept and the spectacular setting of the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix also proved popular with television viewers across the world. Formula One Management took the Television Trophy for its outstanding coverage of the event, with the award presented to FOM TV Director Dean Locke.
