      1. It’s definately great value for a Malaysian ticket – total opposite of a Spain ticket – who only offer a measly 10% reduction on early bird discount!!! A bit stingey methinks…

  1. Am I the only person who thinks that Turkey are missing a trick here? They have the best of the Tilke tracks and the country itself is reasonably cheap. This place should be a dream destination for F1 fans yet, no-one goes and the discounts have already finished months before the GP.

    Maybe someone who has been can point out it’s flaws?

    1. I think its main flaw is lack of a good management in promotion – if they did something like Singapore, make it a show, or offer an Istanbul tour with it to make it into a holiday, I think they could do a lot better.

    2. I got tickets for Turkey last year for only 20€ each (3-day general admission) so it is a pretty decent value for money. Not to mention the place is interesting for a visit as it is (we were there for a whole week) and transportation to/from the track improved from previous years (or so I heard).

    1. Do it. Monza is the DB. The atmosphere is tangible.

      If you’re on a budget, fly with a budget airline to Bergamo & stay at one of the many cheap hotels there.

      It’s a short (& cheap) train ride to Monza (there are several good value hotels a few minutes walk from the station) & has plenty of bars & restaurants for the evening.

          1. On TV I saw people sitting on the bridge where the old track goes over the new track – can you go there on general admission or do you need aother kind of ticket – it certaily looked a good vantage point for photographs!

          2. I seem to remember reading comments from someone that was there this year saying that you’re not actually allowed onto the old track, but that were some places where you could sneak over a fence without being too obvious…

    1. LOL. I was thinking the same thing. But considering the devious nature of the promoters (Jaypee group), I am surprised there are no non-refundable discounted tickets on sale right now.

  2. Do you have to buy tickets for a street racelike Monaco or Valencia for general admission- surely because the racing happens in the streets fans can just turn up!

  3. Regarding the Malaysian GP deal: If you click on “Buy now” on their site, it says:

    “Early bird promotion: 1 Nov 2010 – 31 Jan 2011.”

    Damn. 7 EUR for the cheapest hillstand. But about 1000 EUR to get there and back.

  4. I’ll get my skates on and buy some British GP tickets I think. I can wholeheartedly recommend Spa General Admission tickets (bronze) as I did that this year and sat at the Bus Stop chicane. Saw all the action!

  5. The Canadian Grand Prix tickets are sold at a discount if you bought the last year as far as I know(20% I think). If you buy them through the track website like I did last year you’ll get offers on next years tickets (

    The person I went with called in after ordering the grandstand we wanted and they arranged to get us great seats for the whole race.

  6. The prices in F1 are completely prohibitive for most people, and when they’re not, the travel to the races is prohibitive.

    One day I’ll be able to afford to watch an F1 race ‘in the flesh’.
