Lets leave the SKY problems out of this topic… but why is it so expensive to watch F1.
I appreciate that nothing is cheap these days. I know people who bidded £1000 to watch the opening ceremony at the London Olympics and others who bidded £400 for 2 Olympic basketball tickets and only won one of them!
But back to F1. Whenever I go to Silverstone I’m fortunate enough to get VIP access and hospitality but I always look at the prices and wonder how people can afford it. I must admit that it furiates me that 90% of people in the VIP hospitality haven’t paid for their tickets and don’t even like F1 and then you have the hard core fans who love the sport and will sit in the rain on a patch of muddy grass and pay £200+.
I’m not saying that F1 isn’t worth it, but the sport is cash rich and it doesn’t cost as much as you think to run an GP weekend. They make enough profit from that one weekend at Silverstone to keep the circuit and support races functioning for the rest of the year…. so why not make the tickets a little cheaper???
