    Hey guys!
    First F1 GP for me. Really excited but also somewhat worried. I have a couple of questions:
    1) Can I bring my own food & water to the track? I read somewhere that it wasn’t allowed to bring water bottles to the USGP at Austin or something. Just wanna make sure.
    2) I’ll be sitting in grandstand 12. Whats the best way to go about getting there throughout the weekend? I’ll be staying somewhere near the Sesto San Giovanni train station, so I was thinking of just taking a train to Monza station and then using the shuttle, but I read here that it is an uncomfortable experience. Also I don’t know if the shuttle operates only on race day, or throughout the whole weekend. For race day, will it be better to take a train to Milano central station (from Sesto San Giovanni) and then take the special train to Biassono-Lesmo?
    3) I heard there’s commentary on the radio. Any more details? I know I have a screen infront of my grandstand, also having commentary will be great to keep track of the race.
    4) The tickets have already arrived, but I understand I need to go exchange them for the passes or something when I get to the track. Can I do that at any entrance, or is there one specific entrance where you can exchange the tickets for the passes?
