Thinking of going to this year’s GP, trying to decide between West and South Grandstand.. The feedback I have read is pretty even with South grandstand maybe just ahead. From your experience did you see more overtaking and action at South compared to West? Drivers may save themselves for the 2nd DRS zone? Is the view of the main straight at the West Grandstand worth it, I am guessing from here you may sacrifice some vision of cars on exit on turn 6?
Does West stand get any sun?
Also does South give you access to the marina area to check the boats out?

Great day at the track, loved the K Grandstand, a shame about the rain ruining the start of FP2.
Did anyone tune into the track commentary with a personal radio? What is the frequency, I could not find it for some reason???27th April 2014, 14:06 at 2:06 pm #258288
Thanks Ed, I have read your email.
Thanks for the information!
Is there English commentary over the weekend that we can tune into using personal am/fm radio’s?24th April 2014, 13:02 at 1:02 pm #258059
Has anybody ever been to the F1 Charity Soccer match on the Tuesday before the GP?

Does anybody have any experiences with parking in the days leading up to the Grand Prix?
I am hiring a car from Monday until Thursday, doing some days trips to St Tropez, Cannes, Nice etc. Will be needing car parking space at night. I am happy to use the expensive secure car parks if availability is there. I have read parking can be very hard this time of year, I am thinking it would be okay until later in the week when more people arrive. Thoughts?13th April 2014, 4:44 at 4:44 am #256788
Counting down the days until I leave for the Monaco GP. First time, doing K grandstand on the Thursday then Ermanno Terrace on the sat/sun.
I have been trying to find a map with the access points and more general detail then just grandstand layouts. Does anybody have a map or direct me somewhere online to find one?15th November 2013, 13:41 at 1:41 pm #243194
Looking forward to the race, but we have no coverage here in Australia. Does anybody know of a reliable live stream that I can use?6th November 2013, 9:27 at 9:27 am #243594
I am going to next year GP, I am looking at accommodation about 2.5km away from the track, there is a bus stop about 5mins walk away. What is the public transport like during the GP, I understand been the tight streets of Monaco it is going to be vey congested. Looking for your previous experiences.
Do they put on extra buses?
Are taxis difficult to get?5th September 2013, 7:57 at 7:57 am #214634
Yeah I am very close to you in row 16, so I will see you there, good to see you decided to go! Was that where you sat last year?
With the on track commentary, I purchased 2 Nova GP 5000 eaf muff radio’s they have a antenna to tune in or a aux port to plug uhf or radoi into. I got mine form a ebay seller right before this years Australian GP, the Aus GP site also had them for sale, and some track stores did also. If you contacted Australian GP shop by email they will give you the contact details if you want to buy. They are great value for around $50 – $60!
Does anybody have any tips, good spots to view and take photos while doing a track walk around on the friday?
I am sure there are some spots not to be missed so let us know..

Not long now!!
I leave for Singapore in 2 weeks from tomorrow.
Sitting in turn 2 grandstand, the seats I ended up with look great, cant wait for Grand Prix week in Singapore with all the parties etc. Staying 1.1km from my grandstand seat!!
This is my first time to Singapore and this race, I plan on walking around the track on the Friday free practice 1 and 2 sessions. Does anybody have any recommendations on the best places to see the cars in action?
I am sure there are some things around the track not to be missed, like cars getting close to you and the wall, driving under bridges, favourite corners, good bars to stop at etc. So if any of you seasoned Singapore attendees have some tips let us know?
Also to people that live in Singapore, what are some of your favourite nightclubs, lounges and bars?

I am only new to hear but there is a fair bit of info on here regarding seats at Singapore, some people like been close/down low to track while others prefer up higher. I would probably go a bit higher as you will have less chance of obstructions from marshall flag points and the fence, you will probably see more from up higher as well, but they may also depend on the stand and position. I have not been to Singpore yet so cant comment on T1. It may be to late to ask these questions if you already bought tickets, its worth a try if you want to relocate.
