Good race to everyone, I hope the protests don’t scupper what should be a good day. I’m not going this year and hope that while you all have a memorable race, it doesn’t beat 2011 for drama. If it does I’ll be miffed!
Quick question: Does anyone know if there’s a way to get a look at the pit area without tickets for those particular grandstands? My ticket is for the hairpin but I was a bit confused on if/where I could see the pits because there were people checking tickets as I went that direction.
@Luke B you can make it to the pit straight but you have to take the long way around. You will NOT be able to make it to Grandstand 11 & 12. BUT you can make it behind grandstand 1-2 (across from the pits).
You will need to walk along the far side of the track (and pass grandstand 31 & 33) & will have to go over one of the small covered walking bridges. Then you will be stopped and not allowed to go into the Senna corner (GS 11& 12) but you can just walk along the straight behind GS 1+2 & go to the final chicane & get a good view
Hope you guys stopped off the Hotel Nelligan? JB’s trainer & father were there. There were also a few groupies waiting outside for the drivers. Waved & said hi to Martin Whitmarsh & Ron Dennis. Who eating by the open window by the street at the Nelligan.
So now, those from out of town & visiting Montreal for their first time. How did you enjoy yourself here?
What did you guys do while in town?
Secondly, for those who were here for their first Grand Prix. What did you think of it all?
