F1 season set for twilight finale


The 2009 Formula 1 finale in Abu Dhabi on 1 November will be a twilight race run at 1700 local time (1300 GMT).
The inaugural grand prix in the United Arab Emirate is set to be a day-to-dusk race with the sun setting around 1745.
Organisers may use artificial lighting now the race has been moved from its provisional 1500 start to a time more convenient for European audiences.
Abu Dhabi is staging the year's final race in place of Brazil, where the last two drivers' titles have been decided.
Organisers will be hoping to attract a big crowd at the new circuit and massive global television audience if the championship goes down to the wire again.
