My wife is a die hard F1 fan (eyes on the TV, laptop on her knees keeping tabs on race times) who’s turning 50 this year and I am thinking of surprising her with a trip to Nice/Monaco for this year’s Grand-Prix, since she never attended one.
I’ve read some of the posts here and in other forums and, as such, am already mildly informed but I still have some questions:
1. I am targeting on the T (high) stands for the Thursday practice and then the K (high) for Sunday, the race day. How do you find this selection?
2. For such an expensive venue (at least, as K stands on Sunday will be) I find it rather strange that one cannot book a specific seat, especially since the seats are numbered. Is there any site where this can be accomplished?
3. I am not that much into F1 but I am definitely into photography and always on the look out for great photographic subjects. This a dream one, obviously.
I have read that in earlier editions, access to public spaces around the track is not restricted? Is this true?
If it is true do you feel that it would be more effective for me (from a photographic stand point) to skip on the expensive tickets for myself, just buying them for my wife and, instead, venture along the track for some photographic harvesting and then joining her at the end of the events?
If so, would you advise me to do it on both days, only Thursday or only Sunday (…I’d rather be with my wife on the race day…)
Thank you for any replies and DO expect more questions :)
