Looking into going to the Melbourne GP (fingers crossed will be able to travel)

Anyone got experience/recommendations where to sit?
How many days are you going to go?
If multiple days, go the GA option on Quali or Practice. There is heaps of stuff to see and do around the track, you will discover different corners to watch and see what you like.
For Quali try and get near one of the screens, the commentators let you know what's going on from the speakers around the track, but the screen is the best way to tell.
For the race I have done GA, Piquet and Clark all were really good. Piquet probably the best but also the most expensive. If you go GA on race day, get there early, get a good spot and don't move

Will want to go for the whole thing.

Like the idea of GA for practise.

Found this review of the stands which seems pretty fair, haven't compared the prices yet.

My three takes

- F1 is a funny sport when Gasly who made the error in Q3, which lead to Bottas and Verstappen receiving grid penalties, actually moved up the grid.
- RBR stuffed up Perez's race which cost them points in the constructor's championship - His first pit stop was ten laps too early which left him in too much traffic, slowing him down, which left him an impossible task to catch Alonso for third place.
- The track played better than expected allowing overtaking to regularly occur.

You say impossible but it is highly probable he would have got him if it wasn't for the VSC.

Apart from one overtake by Perez I think, the rest were just DRS overtakes.

They are close to the prize.
And they firmly believe the Mercs are cheating.
That would fluster anyone. At least his down time should be spent going up and down…..
Fair compensation that.
he's been top of the pile before and for long periods. understand he thinks benz are not on the level but still surprised he's losing it publicly.

Sir Frank Williams: Formula 1 team founder dies aged 79 - https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/formula1/59453378
:(
Williams and Alan Jones were the reason I got into Formula One all those years ago. The partnership of Frank Williams and Patrick Head proved to be the driving force for many technical innovations and the dominance of the Williams team during the 80s and 90s.

RIP Frank

Always loved the Williams team. Will always say that camel livery is the best ever. Frank Williams bought so much joy to formula 1. He will be missed R.I.P Frank Williams
