Tickets – 2024 Spanish Grand Prix

Your guide to the best places to watch the action at Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya. How to buy tickets for the Formula 1 Spanish Grand Prix 2024.

After poor organization and a heatwave soured many spectators experiences at the 2022 Spanish Grand Prix, the organizers responded with a much better organized race weekend in 2023. Fernando Alonso’s return to the front of the grid no doubt helped ticket sales; the 2023 edition of the Spanish Grand Prix was the best attended since 2008. The removal of the final chicane also improved the on-track action at this year’s race in Barcelona, with more than 100 overtakes during the 2023 race compared to 75 in 2022.

Despite the spectator experience being somewhat compromised by larger attendances in recent years, we still think that Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya offers some of the best views of any current F1 circuit. Most grandstands offers panoramic views and the circuit has one of the best General Admission offers on the calendar. Ticket prices are also reasonable compared to other races in Europe.

2024 Spanish Grand Prix Hospitality Suites

2024 Spanish GP Tickets: Need to Know

  • Children aged under 5 get free access to the circuit (and General Admission areas) but cannot occupy a grandstand seat

  • Tickets in most grandstands are divided into ‘zones’ which equate to the row numbers. The highest possible zone/row numbers in each ticket category normally provide the best views.
  • All grandstands have access to large viewing screens.
  • The Main Grandstand is a covered, permanent structure. Grandstands A, L and M are also covered.

Where to Buy 2024 Spanish Grand Prix Tickets?

  • We recommend buying your tickets for the 2024 Spanish Grand Prix from our preferred supplier Grand Prix Tickets (GPT). Tickets are official and come direct from the circuit (promoter) allocation. When buying multiple tickets in one transaction, you will be sat together.
  • Official Ticket Packages from F1 Experiences are also on sale. Choose from grandstand seats or access to hospitality in the Champions Club and Formula 1 Paddock Club plus exclusive trackside activities and accommodation/transfers.

Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya Grandstands

Grandstands at Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya are separated into several categories with set prices. Here is the order from most expensive to least expensive: 

  • Excellence: Principal (Main), A, F, T1, T10
  • Super Fan: L, S, S2, H, M
  • Fan: B, C, E, G, J, K, N
  • Pelouse: General Admission tickets without a reserved seat

Principal (Main) Grandstand

The covered Principal Grandstand (also known as the Main or “D” Grandstand) seats 10 000 spectators. Tickets are no longer divided into lower and upper tiers with different prices. Go for higher row tickets, which offer not only a view of the start/finish straight and pits, but also panoramic views of large portions of the lap. Behind the stand is the F1 village with merchandise and lots of food and drink stalls.

Grandstands J & K

Grandstands J & K are situated near the pit exit towards the end of the main straight. As well as providing a good view of the main straight and first corner, J & K are good value grandstands which also give you a view of Turns 4 to 6 on the opposite side of the track.

Grandstand F

Grandstand F is an excellent premium grandstand choice at Montmelo. Located at the end of the main pit straight, you will have a ringside view of the opening Elf corner and a more distant view of the Seat and Wurth turns on the opposite side of the track.

Grandstand A

Grandstand A is a very popular, well-priced raised grandstand located on the outside of the first corner, the Elf Chicane. Fans seated in this stand get a great panoramic view of the cars coming down the main straight and taking on the opening corners, as well as a view of turns 4-6.

Grandstand L

Grandstand L is also very well elevated and offers the best panoramic views of any grandstand at Circuit de Catalunya. It’s the only stand located on the inside of the track. It’s next to the Seat corner, but you can also see the cars coming down the main straight and taking turn 1. An excellent mid-range grandstand choice for Spain.

Grandstand M

The covered Grandstand M is located on the outside of Turn 5. Due to its elevation, it also offers good views of the Main Straight and Turn 1 at Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya. 3-Day Seats in Grandstand M are now available

Grandstand G

Grandstand G, which can seat up to 10 000 fans, is one of the largest stands at the circuit. The G seats offer a good view of the entire stadium section from the exit of the La Caixa hairpin through to the Europcar corner. Recommended! YouTube: Another view from Grandstand G  (Zone 22)

Grandstand C

Grandstand C has good views of the entire stadium section and a direct view of the Europcar corner. Fans seated in Grandstand C can also see the pit entrance and the final corner of the circuit. See a view of the view from Grandstand C below.

Grandstand H

Grandstand H is located in the stadium area in the Northern section of the circuit. It is directly in front of the RACC chicane and also offers fans a view of the final New Holland corner as well as the pit entry. H is a good mid-range grandstand option.

Grandstand B

Grandstand B is located in the stadium section at Circuit de Catalunya. It offers a view of Turns 10-13. In terms of budget stands, we prefer instead Grandstand J on the Eastern side of the track.

Grandstand E

Grandstand E is located close to the first corner at the end of the pit straight where the cars brake heavily and there are good overtaking opportunities. Similar to Grandstand F adjacent, E also provides a good view of turns 5 to 7 on the opposite side of the track. Grandstand E tickets are sold out for 2024

Grandstand N

Grandstand N is the only grandstand in the Western zone of the circuit, which is dominated by General Admission areas. It is located on the Campsa corner and offers a view of the cars from the Wurth corner through Campsa and then down the back straight. 3-Day Seats in the new, covered Grandstand S (next to Grandstand N ) are now available

General Admission at Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya

The unique natural amphitheater layout of the Circuit de Catalunya provides plenty of raised viewing areas and making one of the best General Admission experiences of any race on the current F1 calendar. Free Friday, in which fans (even those with GA) could sit in any grandstand they wished, was discontinued in 2023.

There are six General Admission viewing areas at Circuit de Catalunya, mainly located in the Southern and Western track zones (refer to the circuit map). General Admission ticket holders in Spain also benefit from eight big screen TVs. The most popular General Admission area is the hill between turns 6-8. It gets busier as the weekend progresses; you will need to reserve your spot early for qualifying and the race.

  1. Hardeep Uppal

    Hi Andrew,

    Its my first time attending Spanish GP and I am looking for advice for the best viewing experience. In your opinion which Grandstand is best for viewing the race? I was thinking of going with the Principle Grandstand. Do you recommend Principal Grandstand 1-10 over Principal Grandstand 11-28?

    Appreciate the help. Thanks!

    1. Hi Hardeep, the Main Grandstand is a good choice for the first time visitor to Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya. Better to go for the higher section of the grandstand for better views. And don’t forget to explore the circuit on Friday when there is free access to most of the grandstands.

      1. Hi Andrew,
        We are looking at tickets in the main grandstand for this year and are wondering if row 14 is a good choice. Also what is the deference between a ticket that says 14 vs F14?
        Thanks!

        1. I think row 14 will be fine. It’s going to be lower down in the grandstand, but still good I think. I don’t know where you are looking at tickets, and I don’t know what is the difference between 14 and F14

    2. Are there any tickets left? Im a big max fan, and would like to be in stand G or the main stand. But I can not find any tickets…

        1. Rachael Roberts

          Hi there
          Is grandprix events a good website?
          Do you think more general admission tickets will be released and would you recommend grandstand M or I?
          If you have grandstand tickets can you access the “pelouse” areas?
          Thank you, I’m a bit stuck with it all.
          Rachael

          1. Yes, I actually work a lot with Grand Prix Events as it is owned by Quint Events (who run the F1 Experiences brand). I don’t believe more GA tickets will be released. If you want to go to the race, you really need to choose one of the available grandstands now. I would choose M over I, but we only have I available now. Yes, you can go in the GA areas if you have a grandstand ticket. Here is the link to our ticket shop for Spain

  2. lee goldfinch

    Do you know what date the 2019 will be I’m looking at the 12th May as looking to book hotel in a couple of weeks while we on holiday at the hotel close to course

    1. Hi Lee, the Spanish GP date has been fairly constant for the past few years (second weekend in May), but things can change. Best to make a booking with free cancellation.

  3. Hi,
    We want to come in 2019 to GP Spain with a wheelchair. Is the main stand the best one for this? And do you know I have to note in advance that we come with a wheelchair? Are this numbered seats? Or where can I find more info for this? Thank you.

  4. HI
    I would like to book Spanish f1 tickets for 2019 for my husband and myself. My husband is a full time wheelchair user – is there a specific stand that I will need to book for wheelchair access?

  5. Hi,

    Fantastic website, thank you!!

    Looking to book tickets for our first F1 experience next year but can’t decide between grandstand K or G. Would you have a preference between the two?

    Thanks!

    1. Thanks Hannah! Tough choice, as both good grandstands. However, I’d go for G because it’s a much bigger grandstand with over 20 sections. Once you are in, you can easily move between the different sections. This probably doesn’t apply for the race, when you will have to sit in your seat, but should be fine the rest of the weekend.

  6. Hi,

    I’m booking for husband as a Christmas present. He’s a big F1 fan and I have been trying to figure out the best stand to book. I have narrowed it down to H or J. Just wondering which stand you recommend best out of these or would you recommend a different stand altogether. I want him to have the best experience. Also trying to avoid main grandstand! Any infor would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks

    1. In the Super Fan category (340 EUR), I prefer Grandstand L. From the cheaper grandstands, G is very good (240 EUR). You’ll need to sit in your seat for the race, but the rest of the time you can walk around and check out different views. Enjoy!

  7. Hi,

    I am attending the 2019 Grand Prix in Catalonia and I’m in section G. Can we buy food and alcohol at the track?

    Thanks

    1. Hi Alan, good choice. Grandstand G is a great place to watch the action in Spain. There’s a couple of food and drink stalls behind G, but the beer sold inside the track is alcohol free. But no problem – you can get a pass out at the gate behind the grandstand and there’s a bar across the road (next to the helipad) that serves real beer. The food inside is not great either – consider taking along some of your own food.

      1. Thanks Very much for the info, looking forward to it and debating bringing a nice picnic as a few folk have mentioned the stall being under par.

        Last question, Can I bring alcohol into the track along with food?

        1. Hi again Alan. You cannot bring alcohol into the circuit. You can bring drinks in plastic bottles, but you may have the lids taken off you (put a spare lid in your pocket just in case!)

  8. Hi again Andy!

    I’ve got tickets for the M grandstand (inside the track) and I am trying to figure out which parking (D or F) and gate to use (5, 6 or 7). Issue is the links to the parking access maps on the circuit’s website are broken.

    I assume there must be some underground passages to get to the inside part of the track but I can’t locate them.

    Thanks a lot!

    1. Hi Daniel, here’s a map. You access grandstand M via a bridge over the circuit – this is near Gate 7. Closest parking would be in the first blue zone, near Purple. You could also get to Grandstand M via two underpasses from the bottom of the circuit – first one under Grandstand K and the second one close to Grandstand M.

      1. Thanks a lot! Eventually I went for parking F, as it is closer to the F1 village and I will spend quite a lot of time there before and after sessions.

  9. Hi Andy!

    It will be the first time that I go to f1 race. I bought tickets to the grandstand E on Saturday and I have to pick up the tickets before the race. Where do I have to go to pick them up? Is it on the closest gate to the grandstand E, gate 4 or 5? Or in any other place?

    1. Hi Paulo, you didn’t say where you bought the tickets. You should receive information from them as to where to collect your tickets. However, I believe the only accreditation area at Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya is between Gates 6 & 7. Check this map. Top left corner, purple section is AC – that’s where you need to go. It’s quite a walk from other parts of the circuit, so you may consider taking a taxi or driving there.

        1. Next time maybe you will buy with our ticket company – the prices are cheaper – and we get a small commission to help run the site!

  10. Scott Couchman

    I will be attending the Spanish F1 race this year. I haven’t seen anything about a free Thursday night Pit Walk. Circuit of the Americas and Hungaroring each had one. Will that be part of the event In Barcelona this year?

  11. Scott Couchman

    You rock! Your website is the only place I’ve been able to find a schedule of events for Thursday. The Thursday Pit Walk is the best part of the F1 race weekend schedule! Thanks

  12. I have purchased the pelouse tickets for race day 2019 may 12. Does that still allow me to go for free Friday? And what is a good time to be at the track to reserve my area for race time? This is my first f1 race and dont want to miss out on a great time. Thanks in advance!

    1. If you only have a Sunday ticket, you cannot go for Free Friday (you need 3-day Pelouse Ticket for that). Gates open at 8am on Sunday, so I suggest getting there as early as possible!

  13. Hello! Great content! Much appreciated!

    I want to buy some tickets for the Spain GP to my dad for his birthday, and I’ve heard that grandstand G is the cheapest (I’m a student). Is that true?
    Also, when do they release the tickets for the race? I don’t want to miss it!!

    Thank you!

    1. Hi Adnan, I really don’t know when tickets will go on sale for the 2022 Spanish Grand Prix, but hopefully before the end of this year. Grandstand G is a good choice as it’s really big and you can move around to get different views (probably you only have to sit in your actual seat for the race). Last time, 3-day tickets for Grandstand G were priced at 240 EUR.

  14. Annette Challoner

    Hi my 15 year old daughter is a massive F1 fan and i am planning to to take her to a GP next year as her surprise Xmas present. We have narrowed it down due to price and dates to either Spanish or Belgian ( though obv she’d love monaco but that’s out of our price range!). It would just be the 2 of us travelling from Ireland so which would you recommend for first time goers in terms of enjoyment, ease of access, accommodation etc? Thanks so much as this is all new to me and I haven’t a clue!!

    1. Hi Annette, the Spanish Grand Prix is an easy choice over the Belgian Grand Prix, in my opinion. The circuit in Barcelona is located fairly close to the city, and there are trains/buses to get there pretty easily. And Barcelona is of course a wonderful city to spend the weekend. The circuit in Barcelona is also really spectator friendly, lots of great places to watch the action and quite a bit cheaper than Spa. (The issue with Belgium is that the track is very remote – hard to find accommodation nearby, and you’ll probably need to rent a car. The weather is also a bit of a lottery!)

      1. Thanks for that Andrew, I’ll look at Barcelona then. And probably general admission tickets would be best for her to have a good look around?

        1. General Admission is fine in Barcelona if you don’t mind not having a seat for the race. Normally you can also sit in any grandstand you want on Friday, which is an added bonus. The General Admission areas get busier on Saturday and busier again on Sunday, but you should still be able to get a good view!

  15. Hi Andrew, I’m planning on purchasing a ticket for the Spanish Grand Prix for 2022. I’ll be going on my own and I’m wondering which grandstand would be best I’m looking to spend a max of £350/400 for 3 day ticket.

    Thanks.

    1. Hi Nicole, there’s very few bad grandstand at Circuit de Barcelona. It’s a great track for viewing. I would probably choose Grandstand G (most recently 3-day tickets in G were priced at 240 EUR). At a higher price point, Grandstand L has excellent views of the first few corners and is elevated (3-day tickets were priced at 340 EUR last time). We wait for information about tickets going on sale for 2022!

      1. Hi Andrew,

        Thank you! I actually managed to get tickets on the circuits website. They’ve a Black Friday 25% off event on atm.

  16. Hi Andrew

    Sorry to ask similar questions as before!

    Better half treating me to Barcelona 2022 (when tix are finally available!). Looking through all the info, it looks like grandstands D or F are the best for all around action – would you agree? And if you had a choice – which do you think would be best. I’m a lifelong fan but first time visiting, the mrs will be more interested in the sunbathing (hopefully!)

    Thanks in advance

    Matt

    1. Personally, I don’t choose the Main Grandstand (D) as I prefer to see better on track action rather than the pits/start/podium. The good thing about Circuit de Barcelona is that there are very few bad seats. F is good next to the first corner, but I think the elevated L nearby is better. I also like G as it is very big and you can move around a lot – probably only need to sit in your seat for qualifying and the race. And don’t forget that they normally do “Free Friday” when you can sit almost anywhere you like. The General Admission areas are also excellent – worth taking a walk around to check out.

  17. Hi, hoping to attend my first F1 race next year. Given it’s my first time, I think the main grandstand (pits/start/finish) is a must but I’m torn as I would like to see some action…

    Anyway, would you recommend being near the front of the main grandstand upper tear? I’d be concerned about being too far back if I went with the back rows of the upper tear…

  18. Hi Andrew. Great website – so much useful info. The videos are really helpful too!

    I keep changing my mind between Grandstand’s A F or L. What are your thoughts?

  19. There seems to be 3 day packages available, any ideas when the 2 day (sat-sun) will be available?

    Thanks

    Matt

  20. Andrew – Super helpful information. We just secured 2 wheelchair and 2 companion tickets in the main grandstand. Can you recommend any companies that offer transfer service from barcelona center to the track?

    1. That’s great Pat, you’ll really love the circuit and Barcelona is an awesome city. Honestly, I don’t have any recommendations for a company that offers such a transfer service. But I’m sure it will be easy to find a good one at a reasonable price closer to the race. Feel free to ask again in the weeks leading up to the race and I may be able to find one for you.

  21. Hi Andrew,

    Great info available on your page! I am planning to attend the Spanish Grand Prix in 2022 with my son (our first one) I think we will look to go General Admission and i note the 50% cost of the ticket for my son. I am wondering do you know of any reputable ticket websites that allow you to put a booking deposit on the tickets with a view to paying in full the end of January? I dont have the full cost for the tickets with Xmas on the horizon but will plan to book in January. I am just afraid that they may sell out.

    All help greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Mark.

    1. Honestly, I don’t know of any ticket companies that offer such a service. I do think General Admission tickets will still be available in January, however. Fingers crossed it works out for you and your son!

      1. Andrew,

        Thanks for that. Yes, hopefully I can grab the tickets for us in January and all going well we are trackside in May 2022.

  22. Hello, looking to purchase tickets for the Spanish Grand Prix for a gift. If this is our first experience, and cost isn’t a factor, what would you suggest for tickets/options. We like to be able to be close to/see the action. Is there access to the pit walk/track tour without buying the expensive packages. Looking for a good 2-3 day experience. I thought the main grandstand would be best, but from your other responses, I’m rethinking that?

    1. Hi Wendy! You can participate in the pit lane walk on Thursday with any 3-day ticket. Nothing wrong with the Main Grandstand for your first F1 experience, as you’ll get to see into the pits, plus the start and podium ceremony. Normally in Barcelona they also offer Free Friday, where you can explore the circuit and sit where you like. The packages from F1 Experiences are also recommended – feel free to ask questions about these, as I’ve worked with them for 4 years and done all the activities lots of times!

  23. Hi there!
    There seem to be only 3 day tickets available. Do you know if or when there will be single day tickets? I’m looking to just when the ticket for the Sunday race.

    Thank you in advance for all your help.

  24. Hi Andrew,

    Between stands J,K & G – which one is best one amongst the three? Also, have the rules around alcoholic beverages been revised – read up in your pervious comments that this circuit is alcohol free circuit?

    Thanks…
    Tebza

    1. They are all good choices, but I would probably save my money and go for Grandstand G. One thing worth noting about Grandstands J and K, however, is that they offer better access and less walking (depending on how you arrive at the circuit), and they are also close to the main F1 Fanzone.

  25. Duncan MacDiarmid

    Hi there Andrew

    I was wondering if you know when tickets for the Sunday will be available to buy for the Spain’s f1 Grand Prix as I’m looking to buy them as a gift for my girlfriends birthday?

  26. Hi
    I am hoping to attend this years Spanish Grand Prix and I will be my first one ever. I will probably be getting a general admission ticket and ive seen in a previous post that the track opens at 8am on the Sunday. How early would I need to be there at to get a good spot?
    Thanks very much the website is brilliant.

    1. Hi Aoife, the good thing about Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya is that there’s lots of really good spots to watch the action in General Admission. If you are going on Friday and Saturday, you can check out the different areas and then make a decision about where to watch the race – the largest and best zone is probably between Turns 6-8 and it does get quite busy. But I wouldn’t be rushing to get there super early. I’d suggest you’ll still be able to find a decent spot if you arrive around 10-11am.

  27. Hi Andrew,

    I noticed that some of the reviews online for the ticket sellers for the f1 races are not great. I’m not mentioning any names but ive read of issues with tickets arriving at the last minute and people having already not travelled to the event etc which seems extremely poor form. I am just wondering have you ever heard of any such issues with the ticket seller you recommend on this page? I dont see any reviews online for GPT worldwide and am just looking for some re assurance before proceeding.

    Also, is there any hidden charges in the pricing? I presume the tickets are emailed to you soon after purchase?

    Many thanks for your assistance.
    Regards,
    Mark.

    1. Hi Mark, the issue with tickets arriving late is not normally the fault of the ticket sellers. These are provided by the circuit/promoter to the ticket sellers, and that’s where the delays have been an issue with some races in the past year. Our ticket seller (GPT) is very well established and actually supplies tickets to many of the F1 teams. They do charge a 5% handling fee for credit card processing fees, but no other charges. Spanish GP tickets (like most tickets now) are e-tickets, so you don’t have to worry about paying extra for courier or worrying about getting/losing physical tickets. If you purchase with GPT, you’ll receive a confirmation – but you won’t receive the actual e-tickets until provided by the circuit. Ideally this is normally 4-6 weeks before the race, but it can be later. Hope that helps.

  28. Hi Andrew,

    I booked tickets for grandstand G via the F1 site but am a bit worried as they don’t seem to have a good sight of any TV screens. Is this indeed true?

    From what I have seen on this thread L and G seem to be the best choices so I am thinking of changing the tickets to L (the aerial view does look superb), or K/J (as they are at the same price as G; have a view of the screen; and look on to turns 4 &6). This is my first F1 event so I would really like the best raceday experience on Sunday possible and wouldn’t mind going up to the higher price bracket of L.

    Which grandstand would you recommend?

    Thank you!

    1. There’s definitely big TV screens opposite Grandstand G, but I’m not sure how big or how far away. I’d personally stay with Grandstand G, though L is also good. Don’t forget that you should be able to wander around on Friday and sit in almost all grandstands (Free Friday) and even on Saturday you can also check out the General Admission. And G is always a good place to watch the race, as you can see the cars for a good % of the lap.

  29. Hi Andrew,
    Thanks for the VERY informative site!!!

    I’m intrigued to purchase tickets here, but may I ask how you’re able to offer cheaper tickets than from the official F1 site? Are you an “authorized reseller” and get the tickets at a cheaper price? It seems a bit weird to me that F1 would support this.

    How is the seat selection done for the tickets, can it be selected?

    THANK YOU!
    Jan

    1. Hi Jan, thanks for the kind words. Yes, the company we work with – Grand Prix Tickets (GPT) – is an authorised reseller with almost 30 years experience, in fact they supply tickets to most of the teams. When it comes to F1, you need to know that they don’t sell the tickets either. The sale of tickets is done separately via each circuit/promoter. “Formula 1 Tickets” is actually outsourced to another reseller in Monaco – and they are more expensive because F1 decides to apply a large markup of 10-20% on the prices. As for seat selection, I believe you can choose specific ones if you go direct for the Spanish GP via “Circuitcat” – with our seller, you can make a request for a specifc zone and they will try to accommodate your request. Hope that helps, Andrew

  30. Hello,

    Me and Dad are wanting to attend our 1st GP at Barcelona this year – we are thinking of doing the Hero F1 experience (sitting in the Main Grandstand) and adding in the hotel option. Is this a good ticket option and do you know what times the shuttles go each day? Are you there all day? As we want to see all the Practises etc. I noticed most the events happen on the Thursday, do those happen in the morning meaning we will have to fly in on the Wednesday or would we be okay flying early Thursday morning?

    Thank you

    1. Hi Beth, it’s a good ticket option but is obviously quite expensive, especially when you add the hotel and transfers to the price (I actually worked at the last two races in Spain with F1 Experiences). As for Thursday, we need to see how the schedule will look this year, and F1 is actually planning to run less events on this day. But in general, the F1 Experiences activities don’t start until around 5-6pm – so you should be fine flying into Barcelona on Thursday morning. As for the F1 Experiences shuttles, they are normally timed so that you will be able to see all of the on-track action, including support series. Probably leaving hotel around 8-9am in the monrning, returning 5-6pm. But you have Friday night activities with the Hero Package, so you would come back later on this day.

  31. Hi Andrew – I am considering Grandstand L tickets but am worried about the views from the lower rows. Are the views of Grandstand L still a good option even if sitting in row 1?

    Thanks

  32. Hi Andrew,
    I’m looking to buy 3-day tickets for the Spanish GP (our first F1 race!) on the Main Grandstand, would you recommend getting the tickets from the F1 Tickets store or from the Circuit of Barcelona website directly? I’m unsure of what’s included in the ticket and if there are any differences between them? The only difference I could note is that the Circuit of Barcelona website allows you to pick your seats directly.
    Thanks!

    1. Hi Calina, well I’d actually recommend you get the tickets from our supplier – as we make a small commission and you support our website. But if you want to choose your own specific seats, you can purchase from Circuitcat.com. I don’t recommend buying from F1 Tickets as they apply a big markup and the tickets are more expensive. There’s no difference between any of these suppliers – they are all official outlets for Spanish GP tickets.

  33. Hello –

    I have just booked a F1 Experience Package for Spain 2022 last week – I have received a confirmation email but no additional details – Do you receive the tickets through the post/email or do you collect from the circuit?
    We have also included the hotel – will we just get all the general info/itinerary through email or?

    Thank you so much!

    1. Hi Beth, depending on which package you bought, your tickets will be either physical or e-tickets, but you will still need to get your F1 Experiences credentials either posted out to you – or you should be able to collect either at your hotel after arrival (or at a trackside pick up location.) You will get more information closer to the race about itinerary etc. You can also check this page, which will be updated with more information closer to the race.

    1. The Spanish GP doesn’t normally sell out, but I should say that there is more interest now in attending live F1 races, so I wouldn’t hang around too long – especially if you have your eye on a particular grandstand.

  34. Hi Andrew,

    We are interested in getting the Montjuic Club passes for the race. Do you know where the seats will be during the race? it says VIP grandstand which from the map doesn’t seem to be by the garages. Also can you watch the race from the Club above the garage?

    1. The Montjuic Club is located on the first floor above the pits (the Paddock Club is one floor higher, on the roof of the pit building). The Montjiuc Club does have small viewing terraces with a limited number of seats, but it can get quite crowded at peak times – so you may have to secure a space early if you want to watch the start of the race etc. The VIP grandstand is located at the back of the paddock – you can access it via a pedestrian bridge. It’s located on the inside of the circuit overlooking Turn 1 at the entrance to the stadium section. PLease note that the Champions Club by F1 Experiences is also located on the same level above the pits as the Montjiuc Club.

  35. Dear Andrew,
    First of all thank you so much for the info provided!
    I´ll be in Barcelona during Catlunya GP and I´d like to be there at least one day.
    Certainly to see a race is amazing and fortunately I had this opportunity in my country twice, but maybe my budget is low for this trip. Do you know if friday and/or saturday tickes will be sold or enven resold separately?

    1. Hi Priscila, at this stage we don’t know if one-day tickets will be available for the race or not. It seems like 3-day tickets are selling quite well for the Spanish Grand Prix this year, so the circuit may not release them. In that case I recommend buying General Admission ticket for 3-days, which costs 145 EUR.

  36. Conor Flannery

    Hiya, I have received tickets for the Spanish Grand Prix as a present but they are in another person’s name. Do you think I will be ok to get into the Grand Prix even though the tickets are in another person’s name?

  37. Hi, I’ve bought the general admission ticket for the 3 day weekend. I noticed that F2 is on the same weekend, are there other tickets needed to attend those races or is it all inclusive in the price for the GA ticket?
    Thanks

  38. When you purchase a Corporate Lounge Pass for Spanish Grand Prix, does that include admission? Or do you need to purchase admission on top of the pass? I know there is access to VIP Grandstand but was curious. And does this allow access to Paddock?

    1. I’m not sure what is the Corporate Lounge pass. I can only see Montjiuc Club and Sky View Racing Lounge tickets on the circuit website. In general, such hospitality offers do include the access to the circuit as well. Probably these don’t include Paddock access, unless perhaps you get a tour of the Paddock. But without knowing what this offer is I can’t help you more

  39. I bought 4 tickets from viagogo to Barcelona race for Sunday race. 142 euro each and noticed that those tickets is under 21. Are those tickets is real? All 4 of us is 39 years old. Can we attend this race?

    1. Sorry I have no idea. It sounds like you bought the General Admission tickets for the young people area. You won’t be able to get in if you are above 21. I suggest going back to viagogo and asking about this issue, find out if you can switch the tickets.

  40. Hi Andrew,

    Thanks for taking time for writing detailed article.

    one question, I manage to get my hands on the General Admission tickets for this season (2022).
    Once I enter one GA Area, can I move about to other areas while race is in progress?

    Thanks
    Gabbar

    1. Hi, yes you can. The GA areas in Spain are awesome. You have an underpass from outside of track to inside of track before Turn 1. Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya is also one of the few circuits that has a walking path around the whole of the circuit (inside the gates).

      1. Thanks Andrew,

        One last question, is outside food and drinks (beers mainly :) allowed to bring in GA areas?

        1. More information in Trackside post. You cannot bring glass bottles or cans into the circuit. You cannot bring beer either, and I have bad news. Only alcohol free beer is sold inside the fanzones at the circuit. But if you really need a drink, you will find bars just outside some of the circuit gates – you can check out, have a beer, then check back into the circuit.

  41. Hello, thank you for the great info. Do you know if there is somewhere online or in Barcelona that people may sell their tickets just prior to or during the weekend? Or is that even legal in Spain. I will also see if our hotel has any access, even to GA tickets.

  42. Good Afternoon,

    Do you know where I can purchase a Friday only general admission ticket? or if it can be purchased at the track? I have a three day pass, but I have a friend that would like to go for one day only.

    1. As far as I know, there are not single-day tickets available at all this year. The only chance is to perhaps buy from a scalper outside the track, or check resale platforms like Stubhub, Seat Geek, Vivid Seats etc. But prices will be higher and like I said, I think only 3-day tickets are available this year.

  43. Hi Andrew, do you have any insight as to when tickets will be released for Spain 2023? Thanks!

  44. James Roberts

    Hi,

    I’m doing early planning for 2023, and I wanted your opinion on whether Grandstand L, is the best ‘value’ grandstand. I would love to take that Grandstand however, if another Grandstand is ‘close’ in terms of offering great panoramic views of interior of the circuit as well as being able to see any overtakes into turn 1.

    Also, Is there any websites that allow me to reserve a seat before receiving the actual tickets?

    1. Hi James, I think you have chosen a good grandstand already. The thing about this circuit is that there are great views everywhere, even in General Admission, so I always recommend taking a walk around – also on Friday, you can sit in any grandstand you wish. I don’t think it’s possible to reserve your seat at this stage. Not sure when tickets will go on sale, but probably not until later in the year.

  45. Hi. I have been planning about attending to Spanish GP in 2023. However, I’m thinking about buying Sunday only ticket. Does that limit the possible grand stand options or are those tickets even available in Barcelona?

    1. In the past yes, only a few grandstands offered the option of Sunday tickets – all other grandstands you needed to buy 3-day tickets. But really the views from most grandstands in Spain are really good. One more thing to note is that you don’t generally save that much on a Sunday ticket vs a 3-day ticket.

  46. Hi Andrew,

    We have just got back from an extended trip in Italy which included the Monza GP. We loved it so much we are already planning ahead to 2023 and the Spanish GP seems to be the one for us! We sat in 6B at Monza (thanks to your guide) which was great for overtaking and was a really good stand to be in. It appears from reading the above you can’t really go wrong with the grandstands at Barcelona but what would you say is the best if money is not an issue. I can see you highly recommend grandstand L but A, E, F, G and even H all look great options! Any help would be much appreciated.

    Thanks!

    1. Tough choice, but like you said, pretty much all the grandstands in Spain offer decent views. If you want to see the cars in view for a good period of time, then Grandstand G is a good affordable choice. It’s really big too, so you can probably get different vantage points on Friday and Saturday when it’s not full. Alternatively, the first corner is where most of the overtakes happen, so if that’s important I would recommend Grandstand F or L (L has a lot of elevation, so good views of more than just the opening corners)

  47. Hi Andrew, thanks so much for all of the info you provide.

    My husband and I are really hoping to get 3 day tickets to Barcelona GP. Do you know when tickets are going on sale through your partner website GPT? Is there a way to set up an alert?

    I was thinking main grandstand D, because we want to be protected from the sun but we would also love to see some action so I maybe we should go with L as you highly recommend it!

    Thanks so much for your help.

    Catriona

    1. Hi Catriona

      We don’t have a date for tickets going on sale for the Spanish GP yet, though they were available in early December last year. Could be a little earlier than that this year. Please subscribe to our mailing list (see link at the bottom of our site) or follow us on social media and we can inform you when they go on sale!

  48. Hi Andrew, thanks so much for this article.

    I would like to know when does the ticket sell for the event going to start?
    I am thinking about buying tickets to Grandstand A or F or L. which one is better to see overtakes and which one gives the best experience?

    Thank you

  49. Thank you, Andrew.

    What are the advantages of buying tickets via “F1destinations.com” rather than the official F1 site?

    1. You have to be aware that the official F1 tickets site is just a reseller. Normally the circuit/promoter is the official sales agent for the race, in this case circuitcat.com. The advantage of buying with us rather than F1 tickets is that we are cheaper. The F1 tickets site applies a large markup to the prices.

  50. Hey
    I’m super excited I am been treated to Barcelona general admission tickets for June. Cannot wait!!!
    Do you know if it is free seating in grandstands on the Friday this year?
    It’s my first race and welcome all advice
    Thanks

    1. Hi Aileen, that’s fantastic. Yes, I believe Barcelona still operates Free Friday. Despite the negative reviews you’ll read about the GA experience last year (due to excessive heat and poor organization), I still think this circuit is one of the best on then calendar for GA. Get your walking shoes on Friday and do a whole lap of the perimeter of the circuit (without leaving it). Not too many circuits where you can do that

  51. Hi Andrew,

    Do you know if there is any aviation company which will offer an helicopter flight to the Spanish Grand Prix this year?

    Thanks,

  52. Looking forward to the 2023 race. We have booked transport there with Sagales bus tours and wonder if it’s one drop off at the gate and a long walk to the Pelouse area? Is there an easy way to get over from the bus drop off area please? Thanks.

    1. Hi, it’s written where the drop off point is:
      “The drop-off point for services to the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya is in front of the supermarket Sorli Discau (approx. 300 metres from the circuit entrance).”
      You can put that in Google Maps, see here: https://goo.gl/maps/ndfZDjewfuuhn87TA?coh=178571&entry=tt
      I cannot get Google Maps to plot the correct walking distance, but really it should only be about 10-15 minutes up to Gate 3 (up hill a bit though) – then once you are inside, depends where in GA you want to watch, but you can first check out the Fanzone behind the Main/Principal Grandstand. Then maybe another 15-20 minutes to the main GA areas inside the circuit – look for the tunnel before Turn 1 that goes under the circuit, that will save you walking around the long way. Of course, you will need to wear good walking shoes! To answer your question, the easiest way to get from the bus drop off area to the circuit is to walk.

  53. Hi Andrew,

    I’m preparing to buy some very good seats for Catalunya 2024. I really want a covered grandstand. This site is the only site that mentions that grandstand A & L (my favourites) are covered, all other sites say they are uncovered. Can you maybe enlighten me? Is this something new?

    Kind regards,

    Robbin

  54. Hi Andrew – I want to make sure I didn’t fall for a scam on 2024 Spanish GP tickets. This morning, I was ready to buy from the official GP site and P1 Travel, but they both sold grandstand K within like 10 minutes. Instead, I went and bought some grandstand K tickets on StubHub, which seemed fine, but then later I noticed that the official GP site started selling tickets again later in the day and for some reason I started doubting my purchase. Anyways, I don’t know if I’m being irrational or not, but just wondering if going with StubHub was the right call?

    1. Hello, Stubhub is not a scam, but in my opinion, it should only be the last resort for buying tickets, when official sales agents are sold out. That is not yet the case for Spain 2024. The circuit still has tickets available, as does our supplier, plus other agents.

      1. Hi Andrew,
        when I buy three tickets for the main grandstand through your supplier, are they then next to each other
