F1 Fanatic - Katia
Today, a month after I purchased my first sky go ticket in order to watch Australia and Malaysia GPs, Sky has charged my credit card with £35! To be honest I wanted to wait until the very last minute to buy a ticket to watch Bahrain as I may also be out of the country at the weekend due to my job. And not an email alert on sight about this! I suppose I had to un-check some box or tell them I didn’t want to renew it anymore. Did I misread the T&Cs somewhere? Possible.
Sky for me is more and more a loathed necessity.
Monza is just great! wherever you guys will sit will be a great experience. But to go down to the facts, @ryanwilliams and others discussing location, location, location: Parabolica gives you a great view either to the entrance or the exit of it, not both. It may be difficult to tell from tv footage but that corner is tight and even sitting way up and central on the grandstands you cannot see the straight in front and at the back of the pit lane. Still a great location and if you sit at the entrance you can see the exit from Ascari and possibly a lot of overtakes (like the one on Webber last year).
I was at Ascari last year and maybe because that’s the first grandstand I ever spotted an F1 car from am I so fond of it. But still great place to pick. I booked early (february) so got first row as well.
Prima variante (or first corner, it keeps changing name) is a great spot though a bit pricy. It’s also the first to go sold out. Totally worth if you want to experience the thrill of seeing all the cars getting there at the same time after the start.
Anyway remember that if you have tickets for the weekend you can go on all the other grandstands on the Friday and for GP 2 and 3 on Saturday so you can check out other areas as you like.
@Caroline Miles as for toilets if you can afford a bit of a walk there usually are clean toilets within the shopping area. When you are at the Fangio statue go left towards Ascari for 20 meters or so and you will see a sort of caravan in an internal area and a sign that says “tram toilets”. Those ones are taken out of trains and put there for the occasion, cleaned on an hourly basis and open to the general not-VIP public. Worth the walk!
God, my first post was about toilets!
