17 for me, every Montreal GP since 2001 and they didn't have a race in 2009.

So 2001~2008, 2010~2018

Sitting dead in line with the apex of the hairpin in the front row of Grandstand 24 these days. Kubica's accident in 2007 was probably the scariest moment on track I've witnessed from just a few feet away and one of the most acrid, Schumacher's double pass on Massa and Kobayashi in the 5-hour long 2011 event was pretty awesome.

Montreal is definitely one of the more affordable GPs on the calendar especially if you don't play the hotel game and look for AirBNBs instead. The tickets actually dropped about CDN$70/each three years ago, from $450/ticket (3-day GS24 ticket) to $380/ticket, very nice of the promoter. Incredibly fun city too, wonderful food and great partying.

Montreal is a good one, especially coming from the USA or Europe where you get a very favorable currency conversion! It costs half (or less) as much as doing COTA, for example.

Eight I think, all at Silverstone.

1987 was the best by miles, probably because it was my first one and Mansell won it in such a great way.

2005 was the worst. Incredibly boring and already bordering on the ridiculously expensive by then, so I haven't bothered since as I just cannot justify the expense any more. I can afford it, it's just I'm not prepared to pay it any more.

You overlap me started in 1984, stopped in 1990, the biggest bug bear for me was the traffic.
Traffic was awful back then eh? Now that they've made the A43 full dual carriageway I think it's a bit better, but still not great. The last one I went to in 2005 we used the Park and Ride buses but that was just as bad from a congestion point of view!

The earlier ones we used to camp in the campsite across the road, so used to go down to the Royal Oak in Silverstone village after the GP on Sunday and watch all the poor souls trying to get home, along with all the F1 lorries etc. When we camped we didn't leave Silverstone until the Monday morning, so we'd miss all the traffic :)

3. Silverstone twice when the engines were loud and Spa last year. I think the screaming engines added to the atmosphere but as an overall experience I remember more of the sheer horrors of getting out of Silverstone than the races themselves. And TV doesn't even come close to conveying the sheer rock face that is the "seating" area on the approach to Pouhon at Spa!

I'm very, very glad I went to see the races live but as an overall viewing experience I prefer watching it on TV 8)
