Monaco Grand Prix

Qualifying tickets from £67

Monaco might not have been the first race that came to mind when thinking ‘budget’. However, despite the luxury spots and yachts, you could watch the race from, you can get your fix for a fraction of the price.

The streets of Monte Carlo are renowned for being tricky to overtake, with its tight turns, thin track and too-close-for-comfort barriers. But those same attributes are what make Sunday’s qualifying session so sensational.

Every driver knows a good qualifying performance is vital if they are to succeed in Saturday’s race, making it almost as important as the race itself.

If you’re a hardcore fan looking to tick Monaco off your bucket list, you can do so for less than £70. Two general admission areas are available that give fans a great view of the track at the Rocher Hill and Z1 area at Tabac.

Monte Carlo is just 20 minutes on the train from Nice which is accessible by budget EasyJet flights. If you’re looking for a weekend getaway to the Cote d’Azur next year, you could take advantage of this excellent day out and see one of the most-anticipated F1 sessions of the year.

The track has grandstands located throughout the lap, but a weekend ticket in the Sagres and Solverde stands on the outside of the wide final bend costs just £71.

If you know you’ll miss motorcycle racing throughout the winter, now is the time to book your spot at the first race back after the break.
