Looking at going this year with a group of friends. Plan is to drive from uk and camp for 2 nights. Tickets are looking like around £200 for full weekend in covered grandstand on f1.com. Thinking trying to get a view of hairpin and following corners would be best as it's where thr most action is usually.

Any advice welcome!

I don't know the Mercedes Grandstand but judging from pictures I've seen so far it looks quite a good stand. I will be on Sud H. It's quite good because you can still see the podium and you have most of the grid in front of you which is pretty nice as the breaks between the sessions are usually long on an F1 weekend so you are still somehow entertained. At least on race day. A good spot to take pictures is Sud D because there you have the cars almost at the same level so no pulpit view (which you have from Sud H).

Hello dear compatriots
I'm train hopping with the fam this summer (two adult and two kids 4 and 8) and would like to see the Hockenheim race.
Any advice as the best places to stay and how far from the track etc?
It seem that the weekend tickets are a better deal, but being with the kids we might just go for the race or qual and race. Depending on how far we stay from the track.. kids and stuff, toilet etc.

Places to stay? B&Bs near by how far is everything from everything else etc. We will be arriving from Berlin.
Any one of you guys are familiar with the area personally?
Any help much obliged

Don't know how old the kids are but Hockenheim is a town and it's about 15 minutes walk through residential streets to the town centre where you'll find the usual array of shops, cafes, bars and restaurants. Being a German town there are playground type facilities doted all over the place. Unfortunately, for you, the two local sports facilities near the track are turned into campsites for the weekend.

SudTribune C is an excellent stand. If you find empty seats higher up even better, but row 10 will be fine.
