Podium, Monza, 2012

Are you going to an F1 race in 2013?

2013 F1 season

Podium, Monza, 2012We’re just over a month away from the start of the 2013 F1 season – so will you be going to watch any of it for yourself?

For the 16th time the season starts in Melbourne, Australia. The championship begins with back-to-back races as the teams will be in Malaysia one week later.

The championship arrives in Europe for the Spanish Grand Prix in mid-May. The Monaco Grand Prix has its traditional place at the end of May, sharing a date with the Indianapolis 500.

Last-minute shuffling of the calendar means there is now a three-week gap between the Canadian and British Grands Prix, which is followed a week later by the German round. That was to be followed by another race two weeks later but Bernie Ecclestone has said recently that race will not go ahead.

That will leave a three-week break before the Hungarian Grand Prix followed by a four-week gap to the Belgian Grand Prix. But after that it’s a hectic end to the season with six races in eight weeks.

  1. I’ll be going to the Hungarian GP. Went last year for the first time and had a great time, it’s also one of the more affordable in terms of tickets for good seats. Planning to go for all 3 days plus a few extra before to spend in Budapest.

  2. Going to the Melbourne GP for the 12th time, but I am bit disappointed as I am just about to start a new job & will therefore miss the thursday/friday action, and miss taking my 5 month old son to his first GP – he has a little Ferrari outfit already!

  3. I am going to my 12th Melbourne GP. Looking forward to it as always although a bit disappointed as I am just about to start a new job & will therefore miss not only the thursday/friday action but my 5 month old son’s first taste of F1 on the thursday – he has hit little Ferrari outfit to wear already!

  4. Of to Melbourne again this year, with my now 8 year old son. My biggest problem is last year he sat on my shoulders the whole race. The stupid thing is if everyone stayed sitting down everyone would be able to watch more easily. I fear he might be getting too heavy to hold for that long now. I think it might be granstands next year. Either way we are really looking forward to it.

  5. I live in Melbourne and will be going to Fri and Sat sessions.
    I will watch the race at home with laptop and the iPad live timing app running.
    That way I see more on track action, also there are less people there, less of the rent a crowd types that only turn up because its an event to be seen at, instead of ‘real’ fans that actually want to see the cars.
    (eg Same with Melbourne cup horse racing, too many ******* not interested in the horses.)
    I also figure that if my favorite driver crashes on the first corner and I’m on turn 9, I will only see him past once on the warm up lap, going on practice days they do lots of laps setting up the cars.

  6. Off to my 2nd Australian Grand Prix. This year I got Gold GP Advantage + Free tickets to the Official Breakfast to be seated with 1980 WC Alan Jones. 4 Day Waite Grandstand Tickets (Turns 11 & 12 Chicane)

    2012 I did a 4 day grandstand rotation. Day 1 was main straight, day 2 was inside turn 1, day 3 was turn 9, day 4 (race) outside turn 1. Got a great shot of Senna’s tangle with Dani.

  7. I’m going to Singapore this year, my second GP after Monza in 2011. Really cannot wait – September seems an age away!

    Also planning on taking my 7 year old to some F3 at Brands Hatch – much closer to home :)

  8. I’m going to Spa with my future wife. It will be her first coming to a F1 race, and my last since 2005.
    I absolutely want to hear the atmospheric engines one last time before they are replaced by turbos in 2014.
    And it will be 21 years already since my first coming there, in 1992 (and Schumacher’s first win)… I’m getting old :p
