UPDATE – This article was originally published on January 10, 2014 when tickets to 14 of the 19 races on the 2014 F1 calendar were on sale. We then updated the ranking on April 6 when tickets to all but one of the 2014 races were available. Tickets to the Russian Grand Prix at Sochi are now on sale, so we have updated our analysis to provide the complete picture of 2014 F1 ticket prices.

2014 monaco f1 ticketsIn analysing 2014 F1 ticket prices, we have used the official ticket supplier for each race as the source, apart from three races (China, Japan and Brazil), where we took prices from bookF1.com.

Due to the different pricing strategies for each race – many promoters offer a series of early bird discounts – as well as the different time when tickets go on sale, ranking F1 ticket prices is not an exact science. We recorded the majority of ticket prices in January 2014, whilst the prices for remaining tickets were obtained when they went on sale.

We have looked at several ticket categories and key selling points for F1 fans:

  • Prices of 3-day General Admission tickets
  • Cheapest 3-day Grandstand tickets available at each race
  • The availability of single-day General Admission and Grandstand tickets at each race
  • Whether the race has ‘Free Friday’ or not (when ticket holders can sit in any grandstand they wish)

Some key findings:

  • The average price of a 3-day General Admission F1 ticket in 2014 is 154 USD: pricesrange from a low of 24 USD in Malaysia to a high of 279 USD at the British Grand Prix at Silverstone. Single day General Admission tickets are on offer at 10 of the 19 races in 2014.
  • The average price of the cheapest 3-day Grandstand F1 ticket at each 2014 race is 256 USD: the cheapest 3-day grandstand tickets at each race range from a low of 85 USD in Malaysia to a high of 584 USD in Monaco. Single day Grandstand tickets are currently available at 12 of the 19 races in 2014.
  • ‘Free Friday’ is offered at seven races in 2014 – Sepang, China, Spain, Silverstone, Hungary, Italy and Japan. Learn more about Free Friday.
