Thanks a lot for the advice Alex. And I take it prices of merchandise at the track are the same as you would find at the F1 website, or individual team websites? Will definitely check out the Casino though, would probably be the smart thing to do.
Also, there seems to be a few different streets that have activities on Friday and Saturday night in regards to Formula 1 fans and booths and exhibits. Any recommendations on which ones to see, or maybe which ones have more/less of a party scene then the others?
I will also be attending my first ever Formula 1 race this year, going to drive up from the states on that Thursday/Friday morning. Already got my tickets booked for Grandstand 34, and hotel is all set too. Now just patiently counting down the days.
I’ve only recently gotten into Formula 1 (always watched off and on, but started watching religiously last season), but I’ve been a long time motorsports fan, and I’ve been to numerous Nascar and Indycar races. I’m used to races and all the nuances that go along with them, but I’m just wondering is there anything “unique” so to say that I should look out for, or should know, before going to my first F1 race? Also, is there a general merchandise area for Formula 1 gear and booths at the track, much like you get at motorsports events here in the states? And where would that be located? Thanks in advance!
