F1 Ticket Tips and Tricks
The variety of ticket options for the 2013 Grand Prix, are categorized to suit your budget, date/s of attendance, preferred viewpoint and number of attendees in your party. There are so many from which to choose, I wouldn’t be surprised if they’ll even have tickets to bring your pet!
In order to experience all of that horsepower flying past you, the options and prices are categorized according to what ‘Zone’ and ‘Turn’ you’ll be located.
Standard or Walkabout, type of Grandstand, 1-Day or 3-Day ticket options, tickets for the disabled, Executive Packages, and even ‘Combo Deals’ are available.
Where Are The Cheapest F1 Tickets?
If you’re on a budget and want to know what’s the cheapest ticket on tap, that would be the ‘Single Day’ Zone 4 Walkabout on Friday, 20th Sept 2013 for only SGD$68.
Why this price?
The ticket is dated for Practice Day 1. Additionally, since it’s a Walkabout Zone, you won’t have an assigned seat or viewpoint.
Recommended F1 Grandstands to Catch The Action
Turns 1 and 2 Grandstands, (especially Turn 2 because you can see Turns 1,2 and 3), offer the best vantage points but are the priciest.
Pit Grandstand is close to the cars but has little breeze, so it can get pretty darn toasty down there.
The Bay Grandstand offers the most seats, but has a rather limited view since the road is narrow and the cars will whiz by you quicker than a blink of an eye.
Or how about one unique F1 experience you can try in Singapore where you can’t get anywhere else?
Just stand under the Esplanade Bridge (Merlion Park) where your body will pulsate to the bone from the thunderous vibrations of the cars peeling over your head. Bring your earplugs!
You can peruse through the multitude of choices here, where you’ll be assured to find an F1 ticket that’ ll fit your requirements.
