I know I'm a bit early with this topic; but i like to plan ahead!

 

Has anyone got experience of using the official Monaco site for purchasing tickets?(http://www.formula1m...tingSystem.aspx)

I'm a bit confused with the pricing/wording of it. When choosing a grandstand seat it gives you the option to pay the full price for one day, or a 2 day package (which is cheaper), or a 3 day package which is the same price as a ticket for one day. Also, the price (obviously) changes depending on which day you select initially. It's all a bit confusing! Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Crazy Ninja, we did purchase tickets for the 2014 Monaco Grand Prix from the official Monaco site, but it looks like it has since been updated.

 

Basically, the ticket pricing for Monaco is a little different to other races. Instead of buying a 3-day ticket and sitting in the same place for the whole weekend, you purchase each day's tickets separately. It means that fans tend to mix it up a little and sit in different grandstands on each day of the weekend, though you can of course choose to sit in one grandstand the whole weekend as well.

 

Here is the text from the website:

 

To get a special « package » price, choose your seats in each selected day.

•                2 days package: full price on Sunday, -10% on Saturday, whatever the grandstand you choose.

•                3 days package: full price on Saturday and Sunday, free on Thursday whatever the grandstand you choose.

 

Your basket will be automatically recalculated according to the corresponding package.

 

If you buy tickets for all three days (3 days package) then you save 60-70 EUR which is the cost of the Thursday ticket - that is, you pay full price for Saturday and Sunday and get your Thursday ticket for free.

 

If you buy tickets for Saturday and Sunday (2 days package) then you save around 20 EUR (you get a 10% discount on the Saturday ticket, most of which are priced at around 200 EUR).

 

I hope that helps!

 

We only went this year on Thursday and Friday due to 'budgetary constraints':) We chose K-M on Thursday for 70 EUR - you can sit anywhere in K1-K8 plus M grandstand (and K1 is the pick of these). This was a great choice. Friday entry is free and we watched the GP2 race from Casino before walking the track and doing the pitlane walk for fans. You are supposed to have a weekend ticket to participate, but we were just asked to wait a few minutes before being allowed to join the other fans. We rounded off our mini-Monaco weekend by driving the circuit in our hire car!

 

Cheers,

Andy

Thanks for the reply Andy! And for making sense of the website for me. Grandstand tickets for the weekend would be way out of my price range - it'll be general admission for me. Planning to go into stand K on Thursday so I'm glad for the info on it; and the Friday track walk. Might eek out a few Euros for a grandstand seat somewhere on the Saturday!

 

Thanks again,

Adam.

I've just realised I'll be arriving early in the day down the coast slightly on the Sunday so was going to take the train in.

€400 per family member (there's five of us) is a bit much for grandstand seats but I've heard that Rocher is the cheap & cheerful option.

Anyone had any experience of that area & would you say my kids would enjoy being in that location? They're 10, 7 & 5 - oldest is F1 mad but not sure what's there if the others (plus wife!) get bored.

Any recommendations appreciated!

PS we'd probably not be able to get to Monte Carlo earlier than 10am if that makes a difference.
