    Hi, does anyone know what drivers will be testing in february and on which days. i am over for first 3 days, and am thinking of getting the red bull hostpitality, but obviously would like to see current f1 drivers. thanks

      Simon Purnell says

      Hi Clive, The drivers for testing or not normally announced until nearer the time. Let me know if you need any assistance with booking the Red Bull Hospitality. The price is now £550 including VAT. it was priced exclusive until recently. You should be OK with places for the first week although the 2nd is nearly sold out and second week is nearly sold out, so I’d recommend booking sooner rather than later if possible.

    Why not do the trip yourself. Flights are easy enough, and stay in local hotels near to the circuit. Makes it far more fun and a whole lot more money left over for further trips.
    Get in touch if you want a few tips on travel etc.

      Hi William, Always interested in tips to help fellow F1 fans. What hotels do you recommend and any advice on travel to the circuit from central town?

        Chris says

        Granollers is nearest town and easy place to stay, also anywhere around Passeig de Garcia, Clot-Arago or Sants stations in Barcelona as handy for the train to Montmelo. Taxis run to circuit from Montmelo station on testing days, they put the rates up obviously, so cost about € 10. It’s not a bad walk pretty flat but about 25-30 mins. If not doing hospitality then main grandstand is open as well as various other grandstands. Hardly anyone there so superb photo opportunities all round track. Be aware some hospitality tickets have to be picked up from the accreditation centre outside the circuit which is probably about a 15 min walk from the main circuit entrance on far side from main grandstand. Circuit website selling cheapest, not necessarily the best, hospitality at €238 per day, which gives paddock tour, minibus trip round circuit, food, and also viewing access above the garages

      Hi Natalie, sorry no availability at the moment. What about Force India package? If not the Piso box package is very good value.

      Chris says

      Sebastian, i go every Year and the number of people watching from non hospitality are in the hundreds. You can turn up in the day and pay. There’s absolutely acres of room, you have run of the circuit. What has sold out are the guided tours of the paddock, podium, circuit inner road tour.

      Hey Brian,
      I trust it is still too early for that, one reason is that not all 2018 drivers are confirmed yet. 2nd (I was this year at the test session and checking internet in the weeks prior for the same reason) the teams are flexible to decide up to 1 week in advance of the session. A reason could be one driver is technically better to inform the team then the other .. another reason is to give a new driver more track time. . and so on .. and so on. So for 1 team you will see 1 driver the first week and the other driver the other week (or even their testdriver), the other teams swap each day driver in turns.
