With numerous websites on the internet claiming to sell ‘official F1 tickets’, the vast choice is simply overwhelming. So where is it safe to buy F1 tickets from? Our network of Formula 1 fans have been purchasing their F1 tickets through the websites featured below for the last 10 years! We will tell you a little bit about each of them which will hopefully give you peace of mind before handing over your hard earned cash.


BookF1.com

BookF1.com is a friendly British based ticket agency that covers every Grand Prix of the season. Despite being based in Great Britain, BookF1 will send tickets world wide – so customers from any country can use their service in total confidence. They offer F1 ticket prices in five currencies which are GPB, Euros, Australian Dollars, Canadian Dollars or in US Dollars. They accept a wide range of payments including Debit/Credit Card (this can be online, by fax or even phone), as well as PayPal, bank transfer and cheque/postal order. The choice really is yours!

GooTickets.com

(formerly Global-Grand-Prix.com)

GooTickets.com is another great ticket company, based in Monaco. They were formerly known as Global Grand Prix, but rebranded in 2011 after becoming a global ticket agent for numerous sports events. The website is run by a company under the name of the Platinum Group. I believe this is what will appear on your bank statements after purchasing tickets (which can sometimes confuse customers). Based in Monte Carlo, GooTickets sell Monaco Grand Prix tickets at a great price every year. The range of currencies that prices can be viewed in is enormous: EUR, GBP, USD, AUD, BRL, CAD, CNY, JPY, SCG, TRY, AED, MYR, CZK, BHD… and KRW! That’s a long list and you won’t need me to tell you that GooTickets cater for and ship tickets to F1 fans worldwide. Their latest design website is brilliant and very easy to use.

GPTicketshop.com

GPTicketShop.com is a nice little ticket website being run from Austria, however they act as the official ticket supplier to the Hungarian Grand Prix. They sell tickets for plenty of other categories of racing, but cover every F1 race during the season. GPTicketShop is an international F1 ticket agent, but they only give you the prices of each race in one currency. It will either be in Euros or USD, depending on how they got the tickets off the promoter of the race. That may put some people off, especially if you like to compare F1 tickets on different websites. The website itself is great, with plenty of clear information on what tickets include and any other upgrades/options available.

MyGPTicket.com

MyGPTicket.com is another cool website you can check out for your F1 ticket needs should any of the others not comply with your needs. They are based in Hungary, but like the rest are open to orders from anywhere in the world. They have great availability for every race and an array of optional extras like hotels and car rentals if you are looking to book the full GP package.

F1 Tickets Resellers

viagogo.com, stubhub.com and seatwave.com are not primarily F1 ticket agencies but they have moved into this area in recent years and have become big players in the industry. These websites act as a safe trading ground for fans to exchange tickets for gigs, concerts and sporting events which includes every Formula 1 Grand Prix each season. There is the potential for slightly inflated ticket prices, but they are the perfect websites to check out if you have left it late booking your F1 tickets and availability is limited. Grand Prix tickets can be purchased on the site even a day before the race itself. The best bit about it? Every single ticket sold is 100% guaranteed by the company – you cannot lose money on these websites. The days of being conned out of a lot of money are well and truly over. Beats gumtree!

If you would like any more information on the featured websites or have any questions regarding the sale of F1 tickets, please get in touch using the comments form below and I’ll be more than happy to assist.

    Hi there

    I’m trying to purchase Singapore f1 tickets, and the only place listing the at the moment is viagogo.

      Hi Katy.

      I wouldn’t use viagogo as as your first port of call when buying F1 tickets or any other sport for that matter. It’s good as a last resort, but that’s once the official sites have sold out of the tickets you want. Singapore GP tickets are not out yet but will be posted on this website as soon as they are. You can also follow the F1 Tickets twitter account where release news is announced: https://twitter.com/F1Tickets

      Hi there! Zone 4 tickets for three days walkabout in SG are sold out on official sites, but I have to let mine go. Two pairs in fact, due to other commitments :( Negotiations available because I really do not want those tickets to go to waste. Contact me if you’re interested? :)

    Hi, I’m from Argentina and want to buy tickets for Abu Dhabi race. Are these websites secure to buy them? Because I think it’s strange that tickets are chepear there than in the official F1 website.
    And the most important question, do they have shipping to Argentina? I read that Gootickets does it by UPS but it doesn’t say specificaly Argentina, and I called UPS here and they told me that if the website that sells the tickets say that, it should be true.

    Thanks!

      James Wilson says

      Hi Cande! Great to hear from someone from Argentina!

      Formula1.com, is just like any other ticket website in that they want to make a profit on each ticket sold. So this will be why some of their prices might be higher than other sellers.

      Goo Tickets ships World Wide which definitely includes Argentina. As you say, they use UPS so it’s all secure. Go for it! Here’s the link:

    Hi me and my husband want to go to watch F1 in Barcelona next year. How come book F1.com are selling tickets and have dates but the actual F1 website has no dates confirmed?

    • Reply
      James Wilson says

      Hi Jodie

      Believe it or not, Formula1.com / F1.com aren’t actually that hot on the F1 ticket sales front. They are often last to list tickets for each GP, and as mentioned in other comments they never seem to be the cheapest either. Companies like BookF1.com have direct relationships with the circuits such as Barcelona and are authorised to put next year on sale almost immediately after the previous years race. You may notice there’s an early bird discount until November 27th as well which many fans take advantage of.

      Worth noting – the official 2015 F1 calendar is not confirmed and will not be until September time (roughly). BookF1 state “The provisional dates for this event at Circuit de Catalunya are Friday, 08 May 2015 to Sunday, 10 May 2015.” This is subject to change but more than likely it will take place on that weekend.

    Hi,

    I’m planning to get tickets for F1 Silverstone from stubhub since I am able to get a good deal from there. Do you think you would recommend that I do that?

    • Reply
      James Wilson says

      Hi Nadiah! Stubhub is an eBay owned company and has a money guarantee policy to protect fans from fraudsters. So I partially recommend them. In an ideal situation you’d purchase tickets from an F1 ticket reseller. What tickets are you after and I can have a look for you?

        nadiah says

        Hi James,

        I decided to book from bookf1.com instead because the seats were not numbered together at stubhub. So, I was kind of worried I won’t be able to seat together with my friend. Anyway, thank you so much for your help. Your article really helps a lot!

    James, which web site do you recommend for Belgium gran prix tickets? I am getting worried because I want to buy one adult and two kids tickets but gootickets and other resellers do not guarantee the seats will be together. What do you recommend I do? Thanks a lot in advance for your advice!

    • Reply
      James Wilson says

      Hi Rod! I’ve spoken to Book F1 and if a ticket order had children tickets in it you are guaranteed to be together anyway. This is because all children need accompanying with an adult at all times. If you book your Belgian GP tickets, the 3 of you will be sitting together. What grandstand are you thinking of choosing?

      Hi Jacqui

      BookF1 still have ‘West Club’ tickets which I realise are the higher end of the price scale but are fantastic tickets. The also have ‘North’ tickets for Fri-Sun and Sat-Sun – are these any good to you?

      http://www.bookf1.com/f1-abu-dhabi/tickets.htm?afid=7&custom=comments

      If these passes aren’t suitable then your next best bet is GooTickets who are Monaco based: http://www.abudhabi-grand-prix.com/EF1/en/2883-abu-dhabi-f1/

      This company sell tickets to all the races and are 100% official! And in actual fact… GooTickets are coming out a little bit cheaper than BookF1 on this event.

    Hi
    I am looking to go to the Canadian GP in 2015 some sights are giving dates and some are saying TBC. I dont want to buy tickets for a weekend that does not match my hotel and flight bookings. Are the dates advertised 5-7 th June a safe bet.

      James Wilson says

      Hi Andrew. Totally understand your predicament and it’s a really common question from F1 fans. My advice is simple and applies to all the races:

      Circuits bring out their tickets soon after the previous race to try and drum up some interest and sales early on. This is always based on the date being TBC when the official F1 calendar gets published in August/September time. The calendar gets set in stone a few weeks after the provisional one is released – and only then are the GP ticket dates CONFIRMED. Please follow us on twitter @enterF1 or check the Canadian GP section of the site out over the summer.

    Im wanting to buy early bird tickets for the Canadian grand prix 2015. I know theae tickets are on sale but I have found them at a slightly cheaper price on f1fansite website. They claim to use UPS delivery service however, Im wondering if

    A:- Has anybody bought tickets from their site before/ will I actually recieve my tickets?

    B:- I’m wanting to buy a seat reserved ticket but I couldnt see anything on their website to be able to chose the seat you want. Is that normal?

      Hi Danny! That website is only linking to this website: http://www.canada-grand-prix.com/EF1/en/2564-canada-f1/

      Check them out, it’s a company called GooTickets and they are one of the best you can use. They do use UPS so your tickets will arrive safely.

      As for reserving the seats, I’m not sure they do it although you could email them with a preference perhaps?

      Hi Emma! Yes monaco-grand-prix.com is just a domain name belonging to the GooTickets.com website. GooTickets provide tickets for all the major ticket agencies online so in that respect yes they are totally legit.

      That domain name is actually just pointing at their Monaco page which can be found in the link below. F1.com are a bit slow on the selling of F1 tickets so we recommend going with one of the official agencies to get the grandstand you want early:

Willing to lower the price from the original price of a total of$456 for both pairs. Really don’t want these tickets to go to waste since they are also sold out on official sites now.

    Hello from two F1 fans from the USA – currently planning a once in a lifetime trip to Europe to see 2015 Grand Prix at Silverstone. We are new to this, so just a few questions please-
    Do we need 3-day tickets to do the pitwalk on Thursday? or can we just stop in on our way from BHX airport that afternoon?
    Can I purchase tickets direct from Silverstone? – other sites seem to add fees….
    Is Band 4 of Abbey on the left, right, or center of the grandstand?
    We will have a car and plan to stay at a B&B at Cosgrove- we’d like to do M1 Park & Ride at Towcester, but it only lists Sixfields as a choice right now- wondering if it would be best to just park at the circuit…?
    And finally, what time does the race start on Sunday?
    I appreciate any help you might give– I wish July would hurry up and get here!

      Hi Miss B,

      What a great idea for a trip. I hope the following information helps with planning your trip.
      1, Do we need 3-day tickets to do the pitwalk on Thursday?
      – I’m not sure if the Thursday pitwalk is confirmed for 2015, it was part of the 50th Year celebrations in 2014. The pitwalk was a free offer for those fans with a 3 day ticket. We have contacted Silverstone and are waiting for some feedback on 2015 plans.

      2,Can I purchase tickets direct from Silverstone?
      – Yes are you can or try the following supplies who we find offer more detailed information on where to sit.
      Goo Tickets
      BookF1

      3, What stand in Abbey
      – You cannot choose a specific zone, However, you can send the booking agency an email after your booking, and the logistic team will put a note in your order. As soon as they get the tickets, and if they have the availability you asked for, they will of course allocate you seat in your preferred block.

      3, Park and Ride at Silverstone (M1)
      – Park and ride by the M1 can be booked here..

      4, What time does the race start
      – 1 o clock UK time

      I hope this helps please don’t hesitate to contact me if you require any further information.

      Regards

    very helpful James.. so for 2015 GP du Canada, formula1.com says “tickets are not yet available” but bookf1.com is listing and selling tickets – how does that work? am I buying “tickets” that are not really tickets yet, just an “assignment of tickets”? is there any advantage to buying tix from bookf1.com instead of buying from the “official” F1 site?

    You have a terrific site, thanks so much.
    Just to confirm, in order of recommendation for ticket purchase it is #1 BookF1, and #2 GooTickets?
    Do you have a personal preference for seat location in Monaco? Torn between Tribune K, L, O or T high. Thinking Tribune L High??
    My biggest concern…we would be leaving for Europe 2 weeks before the race. I understand that the tickets aren’t printed until 2-4 weeks before the race date, and get sent out after that. I won’t necessarily have a trusted address in Europe to send the tickets to. Is it really true that the tickets might only be sent with 2 weeks to race day? This sort of delivery problem must be fairly common.
    Lastly, other than Paddock Club, is there any way to get a tour of the pits and/or are they open at any point prior to the race?
    Thanks for your time.

      Simon says

      Hi Jane,

      Thank you!

      Tribune O looks like a good bet as it has views of the circuit harbour and swimming pool section.
      You are correct about the dispatch of the tickets although speaking to BookF1 they will send tickets to Europe using DHL. My recommendation would be, book now adding a comment to your booking about your travel plans and contact them nearer the time.
      Sorry I’m unable to help with the Pits tour but if I hear of anything I’ll be in contact.

      I hope you have a great trip

    Guys, all of the those are agencies that resell – adding quite a margin on the ticket prize. That’s what you will cover. Buy your ticket ONLY directly at the circuit’s website or the the race website! At least that’s what I do and it saves me quite some beers at the circuit :)

      Hi Barry,

      I worked in F1 for almost 10 seasons and can confirm that Senate are a good company, they are Monaco specialists and offer some really good packages. If you do contact them ask for Dean Sheppard, tell him I say hi! There are other Monaco companies but these guys dont fill up their suites and yachts until you cant move!! I know they have recently started offering Ab Dab packages too. I know most the circuits like the back of my hand so if you need any more info then please dont hesitate to contact me.
