    It looks like Granstand tickets are going to be about the same cost as flights, ie £6,000 for every race, they are around £300 or so per race for a reasonable grandstand, not the best seats but good enough. Not all tickets are available yet so will need to check this.

    Monaco is £700!

    However, I could do some General Admission maybe to get the cost down, anyone recommend which tracks suit GA? These are available at some tracks for about £50-£100.

    Accommodation is coming out around £300 per week, I’m going for budget type hotels, don’t need luxury but would like my own bathroom, so total cost is going to be around £18,000 for the season plus food and spending money. My wife says she wants to come too so double that (ish)!

    Funnily enough all the long haul (no Europe) races are about £400-£450 for the flights, the most expensive flights are Mexico at £650. The short haul flights are mainly under £100 each.

    I may combine some races to keep costs down, ie USA > Mexico > Brazil as I imagine (not checked) that USA (Dallas) to Mexico flights are not too pricey.

    What other races would work as combos? Australia > China I guess, don’t want to fly to Aus just for the weekend!

    This means I can get a nice long holiday and do some sightseeing in between races, although I suppose the money saved on flights will simply get spent on accommodation etc instead, but may help with the jet lag if nothing else.

    OK so I’ve priced up flights for 2020 as a test, I won’t be doing this in 2020 as I don’t retire for a few years yet. Total cost for all races, return flights is around £6,000.

    Now I need to cost the tickets for the races themselves, is this best done by booking through each circuits website or should I go via a central website?

    Thanks.

    Is there a particular website to get tickets from?

    I’m finding you can get a reasonable granstand seat for £300-£500 for most events. Are there any tracks where general admission is worthwhile?

    This season will be interesting, hopefully Red Bull are closer to Mercedes, which I think they will be.
