One of the most anticipated events of the year… Formula 1 returns to Barcelona!

By | 11 April, 2018 | 0 comments

As is tradition, Barcelona is set to host the Spanish Formula 1 Grand Prix this year. Montmeló will again play host to this thrilling race, made up of the amazing 2018 Formula 1 grid of drivers.

Fórmula 1

 

Everyone who loves this sport has an unmissable set of dates to put in their diary on 11th, 12th and 13th May 2018. There are only a few days to go before the starting signal is given, with huge expectations resting on the shoulders of Carlos Sainz and his rapid development, as well as those keen to see what improvements have been made by McLaren-Honda to Fernando Alonso’s car.

Tickets on sale for the Spanish Grand Prix 2018

Tickets for the Barcelona-Catalunya circuit are already on sale. There are two ticket packages available for entry to Montmeló. You can either purchase tickets for Sunday 13th May, the day of the Grand Prix, or tickets for the entire weekend.

On 8th May, the first Formula 1 teams will begin arriving by the truckload. Teams will begin to settle into the paddock, setting up their mobile command centres where strategies will be developed and measurement data analysed, hospitality areas will be erected, with space for drivers to rest and recharge… in short, the Formula 1 circus is coming to town.

Starting from 11th May, the public will be given access to Montmeló to witness the first free practice runs, where crews will begin to adjust their cars to the track in order to optimise every last thousandth of a second of their lap times.

12th May is the day of the official qualifiers, where the starting grid will be confirmed before Sunday’s big race. The Formula 1 teams’ nerves will be tested to the limit,where the slightest failing could lead to a Grand Prix team losing their position.

Stands for Carlos Sainz and Fernando Alonso supporters

A huge number of spectators are expected at the event, and with two Spaniards in this Formula 1 competition representing a significant achievement for the nation, the crowds here in Barcelona are set to be big. Stands to accommodate fans of Carlos Sainz and Fernando Alonso have been set up in Montmeló, a real treat for their most loyal supporters.

Ticket packages for these stands are available, including food and other ‘surprise gifts’, such as t-shirts and flags, so that you can make the most of this fantastic event.

At HCC Hotels, we want to ensure you have a wonderful weekend with us, so we’ll keep you uptodate with all the latest news and developments that take place so you can make the most of the Formula 1 in Barcelona.
