    Tickets are purchased once again and looking forward to the weekend. Crossing my fingers, that it’s not cancelled again, but so far I haven’t heard any negative news.

    From what I have read, tickets are close to been sold out.

    Need to book my train ticket and then I’m all set.

    Hey there, I’m new to the group and I have just purchased tickets for my first F1 GP. I’ve been looking all over the place and can’t seem to get a good clean answer. With most recent Canadian GP’s and a general admission ticket, what are the available locations to watch the race? I plan to arrive early before gates open at 7:30AM. Would like to find the best available spot for me and my dad, as he won’t want to move around much as he’s in his 60’s with bad back issues. I’ve found some different maps pointing out locations and have watched some videos but some contradict others.

    Looking to get some advice from someone who has been here before and is knowledgeable, most “tips and tricks” articles I’ve found are those who have purchased grandstand seats and just mention how GA is horrible.

    Thanks in advance and can not wait to attend!

    Welcome to the group Tyler,
    I find the space on either side of GS 24 to be good for GA ticket holders, you have to get there early if you want a good spot.
    I wouldn’t say GA are horrible, compared to other circuits GA is all you require, Catalunya is a good example, but for this circuit, a GS seat is the way to go.

    Hope you enjoy your 1st GP.


    I’ve purchased tickets for the 2022 race in GS 12. My ticket/hotel package, purchased through F1 Experiences, includes a shuttle bus from the hotel by the airport to the track. Can anyone tell me where the shuttle drops off passengers at the track? I’m wondering if it is better to take the Metro, even at additional cost.


    The shuttle will definitely save you lots of walking. You’ll probably get dropped off at the Casino or maybe near the Concorde Entrance. If you look at the track map on the official site (https://www.gpcanada.ca/en/tickets-2022-1621/), you’ll see the Metro station is a good walk to the Concorde Entrance.

    I also have a pair of tickets in GS12, but sadly won’t have the benefit of a shuttle!


    Arriving very early to stake out your spot is the most important thing for General Admission. I’ve been twice with GA, first time was fantastic, second time not so much. The first time, we were able to get spots between GS 15 and 24 (aka Lance Stroll stand), but the second time there were just too many people to get a spot in that area (as we arrived later that year).
    I would recommend using Friday to scout out spots, but be aware that Friday will only have a fraction of the crowd as Sunday.
