F1

Post by Chris n Michelle » Mon, 06 Jan 2014 10:15 pm

Hi all,

I just arrived in Singapore on Saturday and began my new job today, I really want to watch the F1 later this year and was wondering if anybody knew any good spots to watch from/where to get tickets??

Thinking that asking " will the company be providing hospitiality for the F1?" after being shown the coffee machine is too soon?? :oops:

Thanks

You've missed the window period of early purchase of 2014 tickets last September. The tickets were significantly cheaper but fear not, you still get to buy them few months before the race.

You can try viewing from Marina Square mall (F1 tracks runs under/through it) but you will have insanely a lot of similar-minded people to fight for good spots.

If you wanna view it from comfort of hotel room, target Swisshotel (you're able to view concerts from there too), The Fullerton, Fullerton Bay, Pan Pacific, Marina Mandarin, Mandarin Oriental (the track runs by these hotels). Check the maps and book early, although I'm afraid you're too late for the hotels too.

And if your company offers free tickets or hotel rooms to view F1 for employees, I'd like to sign up for interview :P

Hi,

Thanks for your great tips, I was presuming I was too late for early tickets etc, will give those hotels a try though.

I am secretly hoping that there will be some kind of hotel/hospitality provided by my company,we have done in the past. If it comes to it that there is, you will be the first person I invite lynx :wink:

Thanks again

Chris

Some people buy loads of tickets and at the last race I bought on race day for less than a third of the price of the tickets to the grandstand because someone had them burning in his pocket. LOTS of tickets around, all up to the race itself.

Wonder if we will need earplugs in 2014 with the new rules?

Also DO consider going to see the race in Malaysia, at Sepang which is in late March.

Yes, Sepang is far better and cheaper for a "good" seat, the problem with Singapore is its a street circuit and you see basically hardly anything no matter where you sit! Although, Sepang can be hot, it's mainly uncovered.
