You remember the weather on Sunday mac? Wow was it hot


It was hot, but the seats we got were at the very back of the grandstand on Luffield. So the wind just whips away any heat. I ended up huddled with a jumper and my big waterproof jacket on. I jumped down at one point to go to the loo, and people looked like I was mental as I appeared wearing so many clothes. And as you say the weather on the Sunday was amazing. Saturday was pretty good too, though I remember less of it as I started having a few drinks after qualy (I was with my brother as he had just turned 30 and this was his present from me and my dad) and stopped sometime on Sunday morning.

Do you really have to be queuing up to get in on Sunday for GA at 5/6am?
Is Saturday the same?
There would only be 2 of us so we wouldn't be able to get our chairs out to claim our spots and go for a wander together as no one would be watching them

Was going to ask the same, we went in a grandstand last year, we got in at about 8 and had a wander round, seemed to be loads of space in GA down the national pit straight amd round copse.

There's a tiny bit of GA on the international pit straight (according to the silverstone website), can't find anything about it from google / research though, does anyone know anything about it?

From memory there are two small areas there and you would have to be queing before 6 to get a worth while bit there, and it doesn't look v good to me. I think the best GA section is woodcote/luffield and you don't have to be real early there

I will be attending the 2015 Brazil GP at Interlagos. Which grandstands provide the best experience?

Interlagos update: It appears Grandstand M is one of the better grandstands. However, it looks like there are NO assigned seats. First come first served.

Has any non-Brazilian fan attended Interlagos? Are the fans respectful of seating, or is it a free-for-all?

Hi Guys,

Well the department of war and finance has signed off on me going to the grand prix this year so I wanted to know if there is anyone that can give me some advice on the best grand stand to sit in.

I was thinking of the world champion stand which is on turn 4. My reasons are that it is undercover, it has dedicated facilities (food/beverage/toilets) so hopefully it won't be as crowded, also it is a reasonable spot for action. There is always an accident at turn 3 and usually passing maneuvers in turns 3/4. Also it should be reasonable acceleration through turn 4 into turn 5 which would be interesting to see.

Obviously the start/finish line is always a good spot due to pit stops, and the obvious start and finish of the race but I wonder if the reasons I stated would outweigh those option.....

Obviously I am aware that personal opinions will apply but can someone who has been to the Melbourne grand prix give any advice/other options that I may not have thought of etc. Someone elses perspective may assist me in making my decision.

Thanks in advance.....

Stay away from fangio omg that was such a disappointment.
i hear brabham stand looking at turn 1 and 2 all the way to 3 might be the best.
you need to get a seat up top towards the infield so to get view of all of the above.

Tbh i enjoyed walking the entire track so a ga premium ticket is what i would recommend.

You only ever go up to the stand in the actual race rest of the 4 days is spent exploring.
tbh now that the v8s are gone i wont be bothering as you don't actually really see or understand what happens in the race.

I also recommend taking a helicopter ride over the track wich was located around turn 12-14

Thanks MuzzyF1.

Interesting that you mentioned GA Premium. Can you see much of the racing with a GA Premium ticket? I am short so I would expect the crowds would mean I would not see much in GA!

Do you know if you can still walk around the track with grand stand seating? (IE: Does a grandstand seat cover all the benefits of GA ticket as well?)

I've been in most of the grand stands at Albert Park. Best one is Prost if you can get a seat that allows you to see down thesstraight.

This should be of use, it's a 360 panorama view of all the grandstands

http://grandprix2015.360south.com.au/

The year I went we sat at the Jones stand (turns 1 & 2) it's a good spot as you can see the start, cars fighting while exiting the pits, overtaking manoeuvres and also it's a tricky corner so you will see lots of mistakes. I was surprised how many mistakes the drivers were making there that were not actually being shown on TV when I watched a recording later.

Yeah prost is not bad but only see down the straight and pit entry/last corner.

You could just get a 4 day grandstand ticket and roam the whole track regardless.

If your doing the ga premium you can see a fair bit.
at the end of the day i had no real idea what was going on and i even had the kangaroo tv around my neck.(i think they are bust i think)

Enjoy either way i might go to 😅

been there 7 times. Prost stand is the best. You see the cars for nearly 25sec, big screen in front, and pits action

My wife and I have just booked tickets for the Monza GP, we're sitting in the main grandstand just past the start line, any hints or tips chaps for in and around the circuit, getting there (We're staying in Bergamo so, i believe, we'll have to get a train in to Milan and then one out to the circuit) etc etc

cheers

Marvin,
Have been to Monza a few times but always stayed in Milan. Heard about trains from Central station but station staff seemed not to have a clue about this (I think the train may be a state secret) We did eventually track (hah!) it down but the train only takes you to Monza station and there is still a bus ride after that. We just gave up on that and took a taxi to the circuit which is a little more expensive but way less aggravation. I think going into Milan to go out again may make your journey very complicated to say nothing of very frustrating.
Going from hotel in the morning is easy - hotel will call cab. Getting back after less easy but we did find a bar near the circuit where we could call for a cab.

Hi, I am going to Monza for the first time this year and just wondered what general admission tickets are like? Quite a few of us are going and not all of the party fancy paying more than £100 for the tickets. :( Will it be worth it to convince them to upgrade?

We will be staying in Milan so any info regarding traveling to and from the circuit (and pubs in-between) will be gratefully received. :)

I was advised to get a covered stand due to the sun, not a problem if you are used to it, being from Blighty i'm not 8) I prefer a seat and my wife is pretty short so wouldn't see much from a grassy knoll :]

As per my previous we gave up on the mass transit solutions - we are very eco-unfriendly! from Milan we got hotel to call taxi - this way we are fairly sure the taxi is legit. Getting back is a whole other ball game, so here is what we did. From first chicane we took the path up to Ostello Costa Alta and exited the park at the gate into via Costa Alta. Go up via Costa Alta to Via Cesana e villa and turn right. About 200m on the left is a bar (could not read name on street view and can't remember name. Have a drink ( that'll keep the proprietors happy) and have them call you a taxi.

As far as eating and drinking in Milan is concerned we usually stay near to central station. There is a bar on Felice Casati which we liked "Pandenus" and a couple of eateries : Restaurant "Salernitano" at via Vitruvio/Alesandro Tadino and a s hort metro ride away the "Bagutta" on, strangely, Via Bagutta (this is a must do)

NB don't forget Italy is still very Catholic and many places are closed on Sunday

Hey there, I am after some help and advice from you all.

Contrary to my screen name, I am actually an English guy, living in Canada (West Coast). I have been to Silverstone many times, and now I live in Canada figure it would be great to go to the Grand Prix here.

HOWEVER... when living in England I was close to Silverstone so could drive to the track each day and sleep in my own bed each night... Now I am the other side of the country to the race and the cost is skyrocketing!

Where I need advice is

Firstly is the Thursday open Pitlane and Driver Signing sessions really worth it (Having never been to one)? In my mind I am imagining drivers sat at tables you que up and get a quick 1 on 1 as they sign something... and the pit lane walk I am imagining the teams all setting up the garage and building the cars... Or am I over glorifying this? Is it more like the driver walks the line and you are lucky to get a signature through a crowd? and is the pit lane just a line of closed garage doors and maybe the occasional team bloke walking around?

Secondly has anyone been to the Canadain GP and can advise on a hotel to stay at? I am traveling on a slim budget so cant afford a 5 star Hilton, but most of the hotels in the vicinity of the Isle Notre Dame seem really low quality with really bad reviews... is it worth looking further away at a holiday inn or something and taking a taxi to the track? or do I grin and bare it and stay in what is little more than a single dorm room with less than flattering reviews?

I am traveling on my own, so I don't mind slumming it... but I would at least like my own bathroom and a TV :p

The fact I am on a budget is why I ask about the Thursday... if I fly on the Wednesday I need a room Wednesday to Monday so 5 nights in a hotel... or do I give the Thursday a miss and go for the 4 nights and save a few bucks?

Thank you for your help :)

I stay at the Holiday Inn Longueuil and a quick cab ride to the metro then gets you to the island in about 10 minutes. Total commute is about 20-30 minutes with the only long walk being from the metro exit on the island over to your grandstand.

I go Wednesday-Monday so that I can explore downtown Montreal, which is very nice, then do the pitwalk on Thursday (never got an autograph but plenty of good photo ops with the cars in the garages). If you've never been it is at worst going the extra days the first year so you can explore the city.

Hi Dan,
I too am a Brit in Canada (Baffin Island. Yes, really!) I have been to every Canadian GP since 1987 and tried various strategies for travel/hotel etc. The Metro is frankly great (after years of London's tube Montreal is a dream come true) You don't need a hotel near the circuit, you DO need a hotel near a Metro station. You also need to book soon because they fill up quickly. I would suggest you do the Thursday if only to figure out your travel times/ease from hotel to circuit etc. Also buy Metro tickets sufficient for the four days all at once - you don't want to line up eight times do you?

Painless, thanks that is great advice. Having never been to Montreal its a little out of my knowledge range.

Is there a metro station near the circuit? or is there a fair walk from station to circuit?

Dan,
nearest Metro is Jean Drapeau. This is the middle one of only three stops on the yellow line. Unless you are coming from Longueuil you will likely change onto the yellow line at Berri UQAM where the orange and green lines both intersect the yellow.
There is a short walk from metro to circuit but no big deal.

I will be the fat balding guy sweating like a piece of rotten pork cos I'm not used to the heat after nearly thirty years in the arctic.

Painless where do you usually Stay?

Im thinking the Motel du Fleuve, its not fancy, its in Bossard. No near Metros but its pretty close to the Island. And I figure its only me, and I will be out at the track most of the day so don't need anywhere fancy.

There are a few cheap places in Quartier Latin and what I assume to be downtown Montreal all close to Metros but come with really bad reviews.

Well I am only 30 (or at least will be very soon hence the trip to the GP) but im working towards my own big gut and receding hair line... maybe one day ill have a place in Montreal as well!

I do appreciate the advice, and I have just bought my tickets to the race. Gone for the Senna Package, which is all very exciting!

Now to just find a place to stay...

Just bought tickets for Monaco! Going to be in Le Rocher (General Admission) on the Sunday. Anyone know what time I'd need to get in at in the morning to get the best view? Also by any chance is the Casino open to the general public at any time over the weekend? Or is it all closed off/reserved for VIPs?

Hello, I am, hopefully, going to attend the Belgian GP this year. My first GP to watch live. Any tips or info would be very helpful!

Also, do I need a special admission to enter the autograph session on Thursday? What are the chances of meeting the drivers on another day if I do not make it on Thursday? Getting a Gold (Fri-Sun) ticket btw. Thanks.

This is going to be the first F1 race that I will attending live. My question is where would the best seats be?
grandstand 1 is at the pits and the start/finish line ,but is there a good view from there? Would the hairpin be better because you'll see them longer (slower speed and coming and going)

In theory, I'd say pit straight. Wall of Champions, pits, start/finish, turn 1, and potential turn 2 if you sit in the right place. I imagine it's more expensive because of that.

Enjoy, it's one of my favourite tracks in the world.

Haven't been to Canada, but my experience suggests avoid the pit straight.

Once you get over being impressed by the straight line speed, very little happens on the straight.

My advice would be the grandstand overlooking the hair pin, preferably with a view that looks down the track as they enter so you can see the entire braking zone.

Grandstand 11. which is on the outside of turn 2. you get a view of the front straight, the first two corners, and the pit lane. plus theres a jumbo screen.

We're doing a Barcelona/ Monaco double this year.

Tribune K tickets are booked for Monaco. Very excited about that. We'll probably choose GA for Catalunya. Any advice on tips for the event, and best corners for viewing in Catalunya GA? We've booked accommodation near central Barcelona. Any advice much appreciated.

Allow plenty of time to get to the circuit, its the best part of an hour to get there, and probably longer on the first day as you wont know where to go. We got on the wrong train the first day !! we saw more of Barcelona thou lol
You have to on the underground train, then change to get on a train, then you have to go on a bus for the last bit. But between the train and bus there is a short walk where its good to stop for breakfast at one of the cafes :-)

I may be going to Budapest this year, in fact its very likely. Anyone got any suggestions for a good corner? Looking most likely at a grandstand position, or what's G.A like?

I'll be at the World Championship stand at the Melb GP this weekend, same as last year, love this spot!
