Tickets – 2018 Mexican Grand Prix

Filed in Mexico F1 Travel Guide by on 0 Comments

Tickets are now on sale for the 2018 Mexican Grand Prix on October 26-28. Here’s your guide on where to watch the action at Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez.

The Mexican Grand Prix has made a popular return to the calendar since 2015, with especially strong support from local fans. As a result, tickets sell out quickly despite high prices (which are unchanged for 2018). All tickets are sold for three days and start from $250 USD for General Admission 6A up to $1500 USD for the Main grandstand. We think the best value seats can be found in the stadium section (Grada 14/15), which has an unrivaled atmosphere and is where the podium ceremony takes place after the race, rather than on the pit straight.

Mexican GP tickets: need to know

  • All tickets are sold for 3 days.
  • There are no pass outs during the Mexico Grand Prix. If you leave the circuit, you won’t be granted re-entry on the same day.
  • Children aged under 4 are granted free entry, but they cannot occupy a seat. Sadly, there’s no discounts for children aged 4-18. All children must be accompanied by an adult.

Experience F1 at the 2018 Mexican Grand Prix

F1 Experiences offers exclusive packages for the 2018 Mexican GP, with prices starting from $799 USD. Exclusive activities include a Drive the Track Tour, guided tours of the Formula 1 Paddock, and more. F1 Experiences also offers one, two or three-day access to the Formula 1 Paddock Club. In addition to the traditional Formula 1 Paddock Club location above the pits, Mexico also has a second location nearby in the stadium section, next to the podium. Great for the post-race celebrations!

MAIN GRANDSTAND VIEWS

Blue Zone

The Blue Zone, which takes in the opening three corners of the circuit, is one of the best places to watch the action at Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez. You can pretty much be guaranteed action on these corners at some point over the weekend, especially on the opening lap (this was where the leading drivers controversially cut the track at the start of last year’s race). Of the four grandstands in this section (Gold 3, 4, 5, 6), our pick is Gold 5; even though it is set further back from the track than the others, it offers the best panoramic views of this whole section of track. The cheapest General Admission 6A grandstand is also located in the Blue Zone, but on the straight; better to go for a more expensive grandstand, if you can afford it.

Yellow Zone

Three grandstands – Grada 9, 10, 11 – are located in the Yellow Zone next to turns 4-6. The slightly more expensive Grada 10 grandstand in the middle is the best one here, but in general it is hard to justify the much higher prices for the Yellow Zone. Sorry, we couldn’t track down any amateur YouTube footage of the views from the Yellow Zone grandstands!

Stadium Grandstands

The two grandstands in the stadium section seat almost 30 000 fans, giving this section an excellent atmosphere. Grada 14 is the better one if you can afford it, but they are both still worth considering. Most seats – even lower ones – still provide a fence-free view of the cars at low speed, making the stadium a good choice for amateur F1 photographers. Don’t forget, you also get to see the podium celebrations from the stadium (Grada 14 is better for this).

Hospitality Tickets

In addition to the aforementioned F1 Experiences packages, the circuit offers its own hospitality tickets for the 2018 Mexican Grand Prix. Platinum Plus E tickets, priced at $2900 USD for the weekend, are located overlooking the final corner before the main straight and also include gourmet dining and an open bar, plus access to the Main Grandstand. Speed Lounge tickets, priced at $916 USD, are located in two areas: the Main grandstand in the Green Zone, and the Yellow Zone. In both cases, you still need to purchase a regular grandstand ticket in your chosen zone. Consider the Speed Lounge an upgrade, which provides you with the best covered section at the top of the grandstand, plus free food and an open bar.
