Destinations

The Formula One racing season changes yearly, but the following Formula One tracks are currently in use:

Bahrain

Barcelona, Spain

The circuit is about one hour from the city by train.

Budapest, Hungary

Francorchamps, Belgium

Hockenheim, Germany

Indianapolis, United States

As of 2007, the F1 race in Indianpolis has been canceled.

Istanbul, Turkey

It takes place in IstanbulPark [1], which is located near Akfirat town, which is located about 20 km east of downtown Istanbul, in Asian Side. It's very near Sabiha Gokcen Airport (SAW) [2], which is generally used by low-cost airlines. City's public transport authority (IETT [3]) also provides public buses from city's central parts during races.

Melbourne, Australia

Monaco

The highlight of the Formula One Season provides a great opportunity for fans to get close to the action at a reasonable price.

There is a large general admission area called Sector Rocher from which you can see about half of the track, and the large screen on the other side of the harbor; as there is no reserved seating, places fill up early.

After the cars have finished racing, it is possible to walk around the circuit.

Unlike at other circuits, the Formula One racing takes place on Thursday, Saturday and Sunday.

Montreal, Canada

The Grand Prix takes place at Circuit-Gilles Villeneuve. This circuit is at Parc Jean-Drapeau on Île Notre-Dame island right across downtown Montreal. The island is connected by a metro line and taking the metro is defenitely the way to go.

Monza, Italy

Monza during GP days it's connected with several special trains from Milan and in that period cars are not allowed to enter in the city (except for inhabitants) but have to be left in special parking areas connected with the circuit by free shuttle.The special train stops at Biassono-Lesmo station.

The circuit is inside a huge enclosed park, the Parco di Monza, which is also a natural reserve, so please avoid causing damages inside it. Every year there are many of complaints because of pickpoketing and illegal tickets selling in crowded areas near the circuit's gates, so pay attention to that.

There's no way to see the whole track from a single point, so you'd better find a place near to one of the many large screen. Monza circuit is open to public during non-race days and you can also get on the track with your car, so many motorsports fans gather on those days to test their cars or motorcycles.

Nevers-Magny-Cours, France

As of 2008, the race at Magny Cours has been discontinued for now.

Nürburg, Germany

Sao Paulo, Brazil

San Marino

Silverstone, United Kingdom

Shanghai, China

Suzuka, Japan

Sepang, Malaysia

(near Kuala Lumpur)
