It would appear F1 tickets are going the way of music events.
Silverstone temporarily halts ticket sales
There are problems with the online ticket service that handles ticket sales for the Grand Prix at Silverstone. On Twitter and elsewhere, complaints rained down from people who stood in the virtual queue for hours to buy their tickets and then received an error message when loading the page. In addition, prices were getting higher and higher throughout the day. It was met with such criticism aimed at the organisers that it was decided to freeze ticket sales until the next day.
This exact same thing happened for this year’s US GP in Austin, albeit that was Ticketmaster. These big venues (all of them, not just F1) need to scrap dynamic pricing and stop scalping. These problems are adding hundreds of dollars to the ticket prices, and that extra money is going to the ticketing companies, not F1 or the venue.
