After two years of Covid-19, many Singaporeans are no doubt excited about the return of the Singapore F1 Grand Prix season from September 30 to October 2.

The cheapest event is the Zone 4 Walkabout at 3 p.m. on September 30 (Friday). Tickets for this practice race sell for $98.

The most expensive one-day ticket is for the race itself in the pit grandstand on October 2 (Sunday), for S$988. Unfortunately, all single Pit Tribune tickets for Sept 30, 1 & 2 are sold out, as are the three-day bundles for adults and minors .

The good news is that new Pit Entry Tribune tickets for the three event days have recently opened and cost $1,288.

Those who wouldn’t have minded spending more could have taken advantage of booze-all-you-can and all-gallery-access hospitality packages, which cost from S$1,605 to a whopping S$9,898.

However, the F1 site says that “Due to overwhelming demand, all hospitality packages are now fully included.”

And those who have only booked for F1 hotels will have noticed that the prices are more expensive than usual. Bloomberg reported last week that room rates in top hotels reached more than US$2,000 (S$2,800) per night, not only in anticipation of F1, but also ahead of the SuperReturn meeting.

At least, if there are still rooms available.

At the Ritz-Carlton Millenia Singapore, hotel room rates, which normally start at S$650 per night, will rise from S$1,700 to S$2,000 per night for the F1 weekend, Insider reported.

Or F1 fans can head to the MBS convention center for the Mandala Weekender party, where tickets are priced at S$148 a pop.
