Filed in Azerbaijan Grand Prix Travel Guide by on 23 Comments

Your guide to buying tickets for the 2020 Azerbaijan Grand Prix on June 5-7, including the best grandstands to watch the action at Baku City Circuit.

Tickets are now on sale for the 2020 Azerbaijan Grand Prix, which moves from April back to its original calendar slot in June. Most tickets have increased in price between 5-10% this year, but the good news is that the early bird discounts have been retained. Save up to 20% when buying between now and January 15, 2020. This year’s race didn’t quite deliver the exciting spectacle we saw in 2017 and 2018, but word is starting to get out about this fascinating city. Despite this, the number of international F1 fans traveling to the event is still relatively low.

Single-day & Children’s Tickets

  • You can also buy single-day roaming tickets to the Azerbaijan Grand Prix. These are priced at $60 on Friday, $80 on Saturday and $110 on Sunday (no early-bird discounts). If you plan on going for more than one day, you are better off buying a seat in one of the cheaper grandstands (e.g. Filharmonia) as you still get access to the general admission areas.
  • Children’s tickets are available in all grandstands for children aged 16 years or younger. The average discount on the price of an adult ticket is approximately 30%. Child tickets can only be purchased together with adult tickets, and a maximum of 2 children’s tickets are allowed per adult ticket.


Best grandstands at Baku City Circuit?

  • The pricing of the grandstands normally provides decent guidance on which will provide the best views. After the Main grandstand, the second best is Azneft overlooking turn 16. Special mention for the cheaper Icheri Sheher grandstand, which is located at the exit of the tricky series of turns near the old city walls (see pictures of both grandstands above).
  • Interested in the pits action, start and finish? Go for a seat in the most expensive Absheron (Main) grandstand, which is also the only covered grandstand in Baku.
  • Two sections of the track (between turns 6-7 and 19-20) use the same section of road, so you can see both sections when you are seated in the Mughum, Sahil, Boulevard & Khazar grandstands near these sections.
  • Some fans complained about trees restricting the views from the Sahil and Bulvar grandstands

Azerbaijan Grand Prix tickets - general buying advice

  • All grandstands offer a view of a large TV screen
  • The grandstand seats are black and can get really hot in the sun! Bring along a towel or something to cover your seat.
  • Try to get a seat in a higher row of your chosen grandstand if you don’t want the catch fencing interrupting your views and photos.

    Hi is there like a place outside the racetrack (Restaurant) to watch the Azerbaijan grand prix for 2017?

  2. Adrian SImon says:

    Hi Andrew, would you know if the General Admission tickets allow for decent views of the racing? Or would it make more sense to buy in one of the grandstands?

    Thanks for your help.

    • Editor says:

      As the General Admission tickets are only available for single days, it makes sense to buy a cheaper grandstand ticket if you are going for all 3 days of the weekend. You still get to use the General Admission areas and it works out cheaper.

      • Roshaan Gaidien says:

        We bought general for race day in Baku coming from Cape Town South Africa any advise you can give us for best views and experience

  3. Ewan says:

    Hi Andrew, is it possible to specify the area of any grandstand? E.g. south/north part or upper/middle/lower seats?

    • Editor says:

      Hi Ewan, it’s not possible to choose specific seats, but you can make a request for a specific areas when purchasing with Gootickets, and they will try to accommodate you from their allocation of tickets..

    Hi Andrew,
    Planning to travel for the baku grand prix. On a budget and just want to view the race with my wife and 10 month old. Which stand would you recommend? Do I need to buy a ticket for my 10 month old? Also if a buy a ticket now, any possibility to return/refund the ticket in case of change in travel plans? Help would be highly appreciated.

    • Editor says:

      Hi Ali, I’d just buy one of the cheaper grandstands like Bulvar, which is also well located close to the F1 Fan Zone.

      Information about your child: “Children under age two (2) do not need a Ticket when accompanied by an adult companion Ticket Holder (over the age of eighteen (18)) in possession of a Ticket and valid ID. Children (under age two (2)) will have to be kept on an adult’s lap without occupying a seat.”

      You won’t be able to get a refund or return your tickets if your plans change. In that case, the only option would be to try and sell the tickets on to someone else.

      • Ali Tariq says:

        Thank you so much Andrew.

          Hello, with the 2020 race doubtful (unless it gets rearranged), I’d be looking at going to this race in the next year or 2, as this is a race that I really want to tick off my list, and Baku looks like a spectacular place to visit. I’d love to make a mini holiday out of my trip. I’m happy to pay for a main grandstand seat, but I was also wondering how much of the city gets closed down for the race?
          The old city sections look quite cool to explore, but are they closed to the public during the race weekend? Does the cost of accommodation go up dramatically over this weekend?

  5. Zohaib Arif Malik says:

    Hi Andrew..
    Looking to travel to the Baku GP in April with my wife and 8month old kid. Is there any way to buy the Absheron Stand Ticket but only for Quali + Race day? Every where I’ve looked I’ve seen 04 Day tickets for Absheron.

  6. Paresh says:

    Hi Andrew,
    I’ve a trip planned in the region during 2019 Baku F1 race week. I was planning to attend the race on Sunday. Is there a ticket location where I can get race day grandstand ticket? If not which grandstand (Mugham or Icheri Sheher) would you suggest for sat+sun ticket. Other then the main grandstand which grandstand has the best action (overtaking).
    Thank you

  7. Aj says:


    Coming through for the 2019 Baku GP. Would like to know:
    1) What area in Baku is it best to stay – will be attending quali and the race
    2) Any recommendations in terms of hotels?
    3) Cheapest way to book tickets – gooticketc?F1expericences?
    4) Do grand stand tickets allow access to general admission areas and are seats reserved? Can I request tickets higher up – to provide better views?
    5) Any other attractions in Baku worth checking out? Will be there from the Friday – Monday/Tuesday.

    Any advice is much appreciated!

    • Editor says:

      Hi Aj,
      1) Within walking distance of the circuit, if possible
      2) Hilton Baku, Park Inn by Radisson Baku, Marriott etc
      3) If you are just after tickets, buy from Gootickets. If you want additional activities, go for F1 Experiences
      4) Yes, if you buy a grandstand ticket, you can still enter the General Admission areas. Yes, grandstand seats are reserved. You can request to be higher up – Gootickets cannot guarantee, but will try to fulfil your requirements.
      5) Lots to see and do in this city. Check out Off-Track Activities for some ideas.

    Hi Andrew,

    Do they offer like brunch offers similar to Abu Dhabi GP weekend? Traveling from UAE for this years GP when released and after a full day hospitality offering.

    Also does the tickets for the GP include the after show entertainment again similar to UAE event.

    Thanks in Advance

    • Editor says:

      Brunch at the track or in general? I’m not sure, sorry. But given that Baku probably gets a lot of visitors from UAE, it’s possible in some of the 5-star hotels I guess. And yes, tickets for the race do include the concerts – they are now held at Crystal Hall, which is a little distance away from the track. More info in Trackside

  9. Mark Winterbottom says:

    Is it worth the extra to go in Absheron C over Absheron B? I appreciate that C is covered whereas B isn’t but some of the pictures I have seen suggest that B might actually give better views of the grid.

    If C is the right answer, I would usually choose to go higher rather than lower but it appears that here, views from the upper level may be impeded by the Rolex advert above the track. Is this correct?

    • Editor says:

      Hi Mark, I haven’t personally sat in the Absheron. However, I do know that many of the seats have compromised views for different reasons. I’d go for C as it’s only $50 more and the roof will come in handy to keep out of sun/rain.

  10. Fraser says:

    Hi Andrew, I am going to this year’s Baku race. I am only going on race day so opted for a general admission ticket.

    I was just wondering if you had any tips on the best locations around the track for people with general admission tickets?

    Thanks in advance.
