6B is also not bad - if you get kids' tickets, I expect they put you on the front row and you can see the start and first curves really well.

I'm tempted by Parabolica and Ascari. But there was lots of action on those first bends........
The only downer with 6b is you are further away from the flat screen monitor on the other side of the circuit. We like to see what is going on without using binoculars. Having said that the price is good and may have to comprimise this year.

Re: F1 Monza 2014

Recommendation please for which ticket to buy. Would prefer a seat but 6A, 6B?

And any suggestions about where to stay if we take a 3 day ticket?

Re: F1 Monza 2014

6B is almost directly opposite a screen in the camping. It's opposite 6A so you will want high numbers in B....

I was in A last year on Sunday, Piscina on Saturday and 6B on Friday. Piscina was rubbish IMO. Alta Velocita is a good spot!

Re: F1 Monza 2014

Another option is to stay in Milan. There are usually good deals to be had and you have the beauty of Milan to explore. They lay on special trains to Monza during the weekend.

Re: F1 Monza 2014

I forgot to say..... 3 Day Ticket allows you free roaming on Friday and Saturday (almost) but your proper seat on Sunday

Try everywhere you can on practice and qualifying!

Good advice.

Don't leave home without it! First on the packing list if you choose to sit in 6c, b etc. You can buy cheap foam pads in Jumbo.
