One thing that leaps out at you when looking at this selection of pictures from qualifying at Istanbul today is just how few people have bothered to show up.

Here’s a collection of pictures of this afternoon’s action, unfortunately set against a backdrop of largely empty grandstands.

  1. Empty stands.
    For a place that holds 130,000 it looks a private testing day.

  2. Keith, what about practise photos??

  3. I second that Richard, my desktop is going to be empty for two weeks haha!

  4. how sad is it to have such a fantastic track and nobody wants to go to the race.

    1. i think that’s because the hot sunny days. or high-priced selling tickets, maybe? lol

      1. Top (Platinum) ticket is less than GBP300. General Admission works out at around GBP35.
        It` seems to be more a case of just lack of interest.
        That`s probably not surprising given the place lies unused for the rest of the year.

    2. it is not about nobody’s wanting to go to race!! I have attended the race for twice, and believe me there are many people who are trying to watch the rac. but the tickets are tooo expensive for a football-based country!

  5. Dear Bernie, thanks for these packed grandstands – if only Silverstone could match your expectations of what a Grand Prix really should be about : )

    What’s the colour scheme on the seats by the way? Looks like flames!
