No problem, happy to help.
We use a couple of restaurants and include a pack of extras then deliver it all to you at your hotel in Nice or Monaco, or it can be collected from our heldesk/meeting point in Monaco (therein is the value add that I mention in posts – i.e. your ticket is guaranteed, you don’t have to queue for or purchase separately the items in the pack like official race programme, caps, lanyards, ear defenders, etc.).
But if there is no value in that for you, i.e. if you have plenty of time to or would prefer to wander around and get all of those items yourself, there are lots of restaurants along the start/finish straight who offer viewing and, unless this year is different to every other, you will be able to go on the Thursday, find those with availability and choose one you like the look.
In terms of planning why not go again next year and start planning now, that gives you a year to pay it up also :)
If there’s anything else I can help with just let me know.
