Smile Monaco F1 Suggestions

Due to a spectacular bit of luck, I'll be travelling to Nice for work and arrive the day before the Monaco GP. Naturally, I don't have tickets and the prices are sky high - cheapest I've seen is over 700 USD. Has anyone attended the Monaco GP previously that could give me some pointers on where to watch the race for cheap? I missed out on the Malaysian F1 a few years ago when travelling to Singapore and I don't want to repeat that fiasco.

AFAIK, there IS no place to watch the race for cheap in Monaco. The wife and I were going to rent an apartment there, that cost $1100 per week, and that looked to be the cheapest part of the deal (I'm only partly kidding).

You could just show up, and find something cheap from someone on-site.

Might as well rent a yacht. I dont think Coulthard will be using his over the weekend. Or maybe you could bunk with Irvine. Its cool that you get a chance to go but good luck with tickets man.

you are probably best getting the train from Nice to Monaco, its 15 minutes away and you wont have the nightmare of trying to find a place to park.

you can buy tickets from http://www.visualseat.com/en/index.htm

Jon is right, parking will be a bitch for sure. If you drive, leave EARLY, the road going into Monaco that day will be a crawl as well. Don't know if they clear the steps going up to the palace, but you could see some of it from there. You could also check which hotels have a view and rent one, but prepare to fork out 400+ euro's, if you can find an empty one with a view.

Last time I was there they had about 5,000 people on the hill below the Palace. You could see the pit entrance ( and drivers as they walk to their cars) and the back side of the last corner for free. Most people strapped themselves to trees and rocks because it was so steep. It was full by 7:30 am on race day.

The train is the best option in. Your only a couple blocks from the track.

Traffic actually wasn't too bad on the roads in on race day because there is no place to park anyway. I took the coast road. I was lucky enough to have a parking pass.

Jet lag should be fun.
