Singapore is one of the most beautiful and longest circuits on the F1 calendar. It is also a tough test for the drivers, who try to keep a cool head in hot and humid conditions. The smallest mistake can have the biggest consequences.
Whichever option you choose, you will not get to see much more than the section of the track directly in front of you. Unfortunately, that is the nature of a street circuit. However, the thrill of artificially lit F1 action against the mesmerizing skyline of Singapore by night makes up for it. Add to this the lively atmosphere along the circuit and daily big-name concerts, and you have the recipe for a unique race experience. The Singapore Grand Prix is an immensely popular sporting event, attracting locals and a large number of tourists to Marina Bay each year.
Nice to know:
Zones: The Marina Bay circuit is divided into four zones that control your entrance and freedom of movement around the circuit. The more expensive grandstand tickets (and Premier Walkabout tickets) allow access to all four zones, while other tickets limit your access to just one or a maximum of two zones. Singapore is known for the concerts that take place every night on two main stages in Zone 1 and Zone 4 (Padang Stage). Please note: if you would like to see one of this year’s acts, make sure your entrance ticket gives access to the zone where the concert takes place.
Day Tickets: Only available for some ticket categories, including Walkabout. Presale for 2022 has not yet started.
TV screen: All the Grandstands of the Singapore Grand Prix have at least one large TV screen to follow the action on the track.
Zone 1 Grandstands
The Pit Grandstand extends the length of the main straight and consists of sections AA and AB (last turn 23) and sections A1-A22. Sections A3 and A4 have the best view of the podium celebrations, A15 is located at start/finish and the higher numbered sections are closer to Turn 1. Race Experience always aims to place you as high in the grandstand as possible. These seats are best to view the action in the pits and at the start / end of the race. If you want to see more on track action, we recommend reading on. The Pit grandstand gives access to zones 1-4.
The Turn 1 Grandstand is divided into sections A2-A9. The low numbered sections, A2-A5, are in front of the turn, so you are mainly looking at the rear-end of the cars. Race Experience will try to place you at A6-A9 (and as high as possible), close to the track and in the middle of Turn 1, where you can also see the cars entering turns 2 and 3. Sections A8-A9 are located slightly further from the track allowing good panoramic views of the main straight, the pit exit and the opening corners. Access to zones 1-4.
The Turn 2 Grandstand is divided into sections A1-A6 with clear view of the three opening turns of the Marina Bay circuit as well as the exit of the pit lane. The A1 section provides a nice view from above, straight down to the track (great for the start), while the A6 section is closer to Turn 3. You have access to zones 1-4.
Zone 3 Grandstands
The Bay Grandstand is both the largest and cheapest grandstand in Marina Bay and the only permanent grandstand on the track. Unlike other stands, Bay is color-coded. The grandstand has 83 rows and the general advice for Singapore to sit as high as possible does not apply here. Our advise is not go above row 28 (approximately). You will limit your view of the track and TV screens when seated higher. The best sections are at each end, dark blue for turns 16-17 and light or dark green for turns 18-19, where the cars literally disappear under the stands. The view of the Bay skyline is breathtaking, but the action on the track not quite. If your budget allows it, we recommend selecting a different grandstand. From the Bay Grandstand you can access zones 3 and 4.
Zone 4 Grandstands
The Connaught Grandstand is a decent medium-priced option for on-track action. The grandstand is located on the inside of Turn 14, where several incidents have occurred in recent years. There are eight sections in Connaught, A1-A8. The low numbered sections A1-A3 (with only seven rows) are best avoided as they are in front of the corner. Race Experience takes this into account. The better choices are A4-A8. We will try to place you on the highest row available. From here you also have a view on Turn 8, on the backside of the grandstand. Only access to Zone 4.
The Stamford Grandstand has seven sections, A1-A7, located between Turn 7 (lower numbered sections) and Turn 8 (higher numbered sections). Turn 7 (Memorial) is a slow turn that offers overtaking opportunities. With this Formula 1 ticket you only have access to Zone 4.
The Esplanade Waterfront Grandstand is located on the outside of the circuit between slow turns 16 and 17. There are three sections, A1-A3. The best option here is A3 (also the highest part of the grandstand) where you can also see the cars approaching Turn 18. This grandstand is close to the Esplanade Outdoor Theater with entertainment and food and beverage outlets. There are better grandstands in this price category. We do not recommend this stand. Access to Zone 4 only.
The Padang Grandstand is located on the inside of the track between Turns 9 and 10. Sections are numbered: A1-A10 and B1-B11. If you are considering this grandstand, the best sections are to be found closest to the turns. We recommend the low numbered A sections for Turn 9 and the high numbered B sections for Turn 10. We will reserve these sections if available. Padang isn’t a great choice for on-track action, but well worth it given its proximity to the Padang stage where the biggest concerts take place on weekends. Access to Zone 4 only.
Grand Prix Walkabout Tickets for Singapore (General Admission)
Walkabout tickets in Marina Bay are the equivalent of General Admission tickets to other races; you will not be given a reserved seat and you may move freely in a certain area. There are, however, elevated viewing platforms around the circuit, some of which offer a view of the track without hindrance from the fence. In general, your track view can be obstructed and at some points you will only get a quick glance of the cars on track.
The best days to take advantage of the Walkabout tickets are Friday and Saturday, when fewer fans are competing for space on the viewing platforms. A good strategy is to visit the different viewpoints on the first days, pick the spot you want, and get there early on Sunday to claim it before the race.
Two types of Walkabout tickets are sold in Singapore – for Zone 4 only and for all zones (Premier Walkabout). Both are available as a three-day ticket. The more expensive Premier Walkabout tickets offer access to Zone 1. There are far fewer fans in Zone 1 and most have grandstand or hospitality access, which means there is a better chance of getting a good spot along the track. Some of the best viewing areas for Premier Walkabout ticket holders are opening turns 1-3, turn 5 (where you can get really close to the action) and final turns 22-23. Zone 4 tickets are a good budget choice with access to the viewing platforms on Esplanade Drive and Raffles Avenue, as well as access to the biggest concerts on the Padang stage. Only access to zone 4.
