Travel: Mexico City Grand Prix
Mexico City Grand Prix 2022. What a race! Let me tell you this was one of the best experiences of my life. The crowd had so much energy, the weather was beautiful, and we had awesome seats. Plus, listening to the fans cheer on their home favourite is just an unforgettable experience. Okay, let’s check out some photos!
Mexico City Grand Prix 2022
First, the circuit is packed – so many people! When you buy tickets (we did an F1 Experience) you’ll be designated to a zone, we were blue zone (sitting in grandstand 5) and you can’t make your way to other (say green or yellow) zones. In our blue zone we had 3 food courts and a massive amount of activities.
Our seats were great and we were at the circuit all three days. Practice, qualifying, and the race, plus all the added local or minor races and events in between.
We event took in a few activities like these reaction games and toured the massive helmets.
Okay – time for the race start. Check out the video I took of the first corner. It’s a little wobbly since I was concentrating on watching with my own two eyes and not looking at my phone, yet you get the idea. Check out the TV to the left for the start, then the cars come roaring around the corner.
Here’s a photo of Checo chasing Lewis, a video of Alonso upset that he had to retire the car, and then the fans going wild at the end.
The fans, though! So wild.
Grand Prix Tips
Okay, a few tips I thought I’d share after our first grand prix. We’re not regulars by any means, nor do we plan on attending a GP each year, yet I thought I’d share some info you might find helpful.
- Bring an empty disposable water bottle – they have water fills at the front entry.
- If you’re buying anything inside the GP, you’ll need to participate in the cashless Citibanamex program; so don’t bring cash.
- Also, track your spending, if you leave below the minimum for a refund, you forfeit your funds.
- Sunscreen, sunglasses, hats – bring sun protection.
- You can bring in a backpack, most GPs have a list of what you can and can’t bring in.
As a Mexican food lover, I was impressed with their gluten free options. Here’s a tase of what we ate.
Now for more photos!
Well, there you have it – one Mexico City Grand Prix, it was a wild race. Thanks so much for stopping by and check out the post.
