Insider Access to the Famed Paddock with F1® Experiences

Posted on 22 September, 2017

The most exclusive stretch of area that you will you set upon during a Formula 1® race weekend, experience the exclusivity of the famed F1® Paddock with a complete, expert-led tour, available only through F1® Experiences.

The Formula 1® Paddock

Home to all 10 Formula 1® teams’ motor homes and transporters, this enclosed area behind the pit lane is inaccessible to members of the public. Through F1® Experiences, guests are given unique access to this hallowed ground.

Led in tow by long-term Formula 1® journalist Luc Domenjoz-Mayor, a veteran of some 524 Grand Prix’s (and counting) in an illustrious career dating back to 1984, talk a walk past driver and team principals as they put together their last-minute preparations for the weekend. Previously, we have bumped into drivers including Kimi Raikkonnen , Carlos Sainz, Alain Prost, Daniel Ricciardo, Lewis Hamilton, Lance Stroll as well as CEO Chase Carey and Red Bull director Christian Horner. Stopping off at the Pirelli tyre center, clients are guided through the insightful and fascinating technology of F1® tires by a member of the Pirelli team.


From here, F1® Experiences patrons are given a detailed look into and breakdown of the Formula 1® safety car by current driver and former racer Bernd Mayländer. Having led at least one lap at each of F1’s® circuits globally, the German is an encyclopedia of knowledge and the perfect man to pitch all your questions to.

A force of modern-day futurity, the motor homes which engulf the Paddock are a sight to behold. In the past, we have been lucky enough to enter the magnificent Red Bull Energy station and McLaren hospitality suites. Here, team members discuss what goes on during Grand Prix weekends, a truly fantastic opportunity for the most ardent of race fans. Previously, we have bumped into Aussie fan-favorite Daniel Ricciardo!

Of course, arguably the most important component of race weekends is the car itself. A hub of activity, we bring you about as close as you’re likely to get to the cars that illuminate the track with jaw-dropping (unless of course you’ve signed for a team) with team garage visits. Here, F1® Experiences patrons are brought up to speed on every inch of the F1® car, the enormous preparation it takes, the cost to run a car (it certainly isn’t cheap) and different strategies and goals teams employ for specific race weekends. Renault and Red Bull are just some of the garages our clients have walked through.
