Better or worse is a subjective thing because you might prefer to sit high up to get more of a bird’s eye view of the action and not “as” noisy. For others, they want to be as close to the track as possible to “feel” the sound vibrate through their bodies.
It’s my first GP too, so it’s all a guess, but I did a lot of research for my section (Senna Curve) and sharing my discovery with Jenny and the forum (she seemed like she wanted to be close to the track, and in fact, she wouldn’t be). Lucky I researched too, because at Senna Curve, I wanted to see the Start, and also see the cars battle for position at turn 1 and 2. Previous years, there’s always action here! See and hear the braking, turning, and acceleration to a short straight. Well, if I didn’t research, there’s some trees in some sections that block the view of start/finish line and further away from the turns, so those folks in those seats would end up seeing pretty much the cars accelerating toward them a bit and not see the start/finish.
Another thing to consider is that if you sit too close, say, first 5 rows (I don’t know), you’re below the fence in most sections I think, so your view is somewhat obstructed I’m told.
You know what though, I think as first GP, no matter what, it’s going to be a BLAST!!!
