Official Ticket Packages are now on sale for the 2023 Bahrain Grand Prix.

Since joining the Formula 1 calendar in 2004, the Bahrain Grand Prix has established itself as a favourite among drivers and fans. The race is well organised, the circuit is modern and holding the race under lights has really improved the spectacle! Bahrain International Circuit (also known as “Sakhir”) was designed by Hermann Tilke and built from scratch in just 16 months for $150m USD. Since 2014, the race has followed the lead of Singapore and moved to a later timeslot under lights, which has really improved the spectator experience at the circuit. Not only do the cars look great under lights, the nighttime temperatures are also much more comfortable for fans. The good news is that all the grandstands at the Bahrain International Circuit offer good viewing opportunities, many over several sections of the track

Main Grandstand

The Main Grandstand is located on the start/finish straight, opposite the team garages. These seats are best for fans who want to check out all the action in the pits (including pitstops), soak up the pre-race atmosphere, and have the best view of the race start and podium celebrations. A seat in the Main Grandstand is included with Hero Ticket Packages, which also include exciting trackside activities on Thursday and Friday.

Turn 1 Grandstand

Get a ringside seat for the first lap of the race! The Turn 1 Grandstand is located on the approach to the first corner, and you’ll also have a more distant view of the cars traveling down as far as Turn 4. This is a great vantage point for overtaking; remember Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton’s “duel in the desert” in 2014? A seat in the Turn 1 Grandstand is available with Trophy Ticket Packages from F1 Experiences. Additional benefits include access to the Inside F1® event on Friday evening with a current or legendary Formula 1 driver.

Champions Club

New for 2023, the Champions Club hospitality suite is located in the Batelco Grandstand, which faces the back straight and has good views over large parts of the circuit. As well as all-inclusive hospitality in the Champions Club suite, you'll also be able to take your seat in the Batelco Grandstand for the key racing moments of the weekend. Additional benefits of Champions Club Packages in Bahrain include an appearance by an F1® media personality or driver, a guided tour of the F1 Paddock and the chance to walk on the grid and get your photo taken with the championship trophies. 3-Day Champions Club Packages are now available

Formula 1 Paddock Club™

Get the best view in the house, right above the pit garages! Enjoy all-day premium hospitality with open bar and fine dining, plus daily pit lane walks and live entertainment, including driver interviews. 3-Day Access to the Formula 1 Paddock Club will soon be available with F1 Experiences. In addition to Paddock Club access, Legend Ticket Packages - also available soon - include a 1-Day Paddock Pass and special placement for the post-race podium ceremony.
