Posted on 05 November, 2020

From premium trackside views to gourmet hospitality and unique insider activities, there’s no better place to soak up the atmosphere of Formula 1 than the Paddock Club.

The best trackside views

Occupying prime trackside real estate above the team garages on the start-finish straight, the Paddock Club offers a front-row seat in the heart of the action. Get birds-eye views of the teams at work in the pits and feel the anticipation building as the key racing moments unfold before your eyes – from the excitement of the qualifying shootout to the winning driver taking the chequered flag. Paddock Club guests also enjoy a ringside seat for the race build up, start and pit stops, where races can be won and lost in fractions of a second. In addition to premium trackside views stretching the length of the pit lane*, some Paddock Club suites also offer direct views of the first corner – the perfect vantage point for the start of the race – as well as panoramic roof terraces. Paddock Club guests can also access a reserved VIP grandstand in a prime location for a different perspective on the racing action.

Unrivalled luxury

Step into a world of luxury inside the Paddock Club, complete with formal dining suites (including the possibility to reserve whole tables for corporate and private groups), relaxed lounge areas with big-screen TVs and a range of vantage points to check out the action in the pits and on the track. Paddock Club guests can test their skills on simulators and other interactive displays, watch live music performances and shop for the latest team merchandise and unique Formula 1 collectibles. Exclusive interviews with Formula 1 drivers, team bosses and other racing celebrities also take place within the Paddock Club suite over the race weekend. The luxury environment of the Formula 1 Paddock Club is complemented by impeccable service from a team of highly trained staff ready to cater to your every need.

VIP hospitality

For more than 30 years, the Paddock Club has been setting new standards in high-end trackside hospitality at Formula 1 races around the world.
