Where to buy Formula 1 tickets

After you have decided to go to a race, choosing which ticket to buy – and where to buy it – is one of the key decisions you will need to make. Some race organizers handle their own ticket sales via an official channel (e.g. the circuit website), while others outsource their sales to ticket agencies. The quality of customer service, information on available tickets and purchase process can vary in efficiency, depending on the destination. When buying from a ticket agency, you will generally pay a small premium over the official ticket price, but with better customer service and a more personal touch. You can also purchase tickets for multiple races from one source and build a long-term relationship. We’ve co-operated with several of the biggest and most reputable F1 ticket companies, all of whom supply tickets to all the races on the current Formula 1 calendar. For 2018, we are working with Gootickets for F1 tickets and F1 Experiences for ticket packages.

Gootickets.com

Gootickets is part of the Platinium Group, based in Monaco. As well as offering tickets to all current F1 races, Platinium’s technology powers the ticketing solution for F1.com and for several races on the current calendar. They have been around for years (previously as Global Grand Prix) and also offer MotoGP, the ATP tennis and Motocross tickets.

F1Experiences.com

In early 2017, Formula 1 partnered with Quint Events, a US-based event travel company, to launch F1 Experiences. The packages offered by F1 Experiences provide fans with benefits and access not available anywhere else, including paddock tours and exclusive meet-and-greets with the stars of Formula 1. Race tickets, VIP Hospitality and luxury hotels are also offered as part of these exclusive packages.

General advice on buying Formula 1 tickets

Buy in advance! For most races, it’s possible to take advantage of ‘early-bird’ discounts (normally between 10-30%) on F1 tickets when you purchase well ahead of time. At some events, the best grandstands also sell out well before the race, providing another reason to buy as early as you can. The Formula 1 calendar normally gets finalized for the new season in December, though many tickets go on sale up to a year in advance. Normally, you will buy your Formula 1 ticket for the whole weekend (Friday-Sunday). This includes two F1 practice sessions on Friday, a third practice session and qualifying on Saturday, plus the race on Sunday. If you are restricted in either budget or time, it is possible to purchase either one day or two-day (weekend) tickets for most races on the current calendar.

Grandstand Formula 1 tickets

Each race has a variety of different grandstands scattered around the track to choose from. Some grandstands are covered and provide protection from either the rain or the sun, whilst others are exposed to the elements – prices will reflect this. A good rule of thumb is to try and get a seat higher up in the grandstand – your view is likely to be more panoramic and less obstructed by the high trackside catch fencing. Even if you have bought a grandstand seat, you are also granted access to general admission viewing areas around the track. Many fans only use their seat for qualifying and the race itself, spending the rest of the time checking out the action from different vantage points around the circuit. Some races – Australia, Canada, Hungary and Austria, to name a few – offer grandstand ticket options which provide you with seats in different grandstands on each day of the event, a good choice if it’s your first visit to a race. Every F1 race has large grandstands situated on the pit straight, which overlook the start/finish line and the team garages. You won’t see much on-track action, but these seats are a great place to immerse yourself in the world of Formula One. You will also be in a prime position to watch the race build up, start and podium celebrations at the end of the race. As a rule, the seats closer to the start/finish line will be more expensive than those further away. We also recommend grandstands that offer a view of both the first or last corner, and the pit straight.

General Admission Formula 1 tickets

On a budget?  General admission tickets are the cheapest type available. They do not provide you with your own seat, just the right of entry to most parts of the circuit. The quality of general admission entry to races around the world is varied. Some races offer excellent raised viewing areas and bench seating, whilst others provide little in the way of either vantage points or creature comforts for fans. If you are buying a general admission ticket, be ready to walk a lot over the weekend. A certain level of general fitness is required, not to mention a comfortable pair of shoes.

Paddock Club & Hospitality Tickets

The Paddock Club offers the most exclusive access to a Formula 1 event on race weekend. Situated directly above the pits, the Paddock Club provides an excellent view of pit activity, pit stops and the start of the race. Along with full catering and an open bar, Paddock Club pass holders are also entitled to pit-lane walks and access to the support race paddock. Other VIP tickets with food and drink included are also available at most race weekends. You can buy Paddock Club and other premium tickets and packages from our partner F1 Experiences.
