Watching 2007 World Champion Kimi Raikkonen give one of his best ever performances to win the Rolex Australian Grand Prix in his Renault Lotus certainly brightened up the dull overcast Melbourne afternoon a couple of weeks ago. Melbourne’s Albert Park is a great venue and it was packed for the opening round of the 2013 FIA Formula One World Championship season. Local support was right behind the veteran Formula One driver Mark Webber and the relative new comer Daniel Ricciardo who was competing for second year in a row.
There is nothing to compare to the excitement of attending a Formula One event and I, for one, am already organising my F1 tickets for next year since from April 2nd, I will already be able to book my F1 tickets to the 2014 Australian Grand Prix and as I want to have the same seats as I had this year, I am making sure nothing is left to chance. It is my dream to buy an entry pass to the Formula 1 Paddock Club, but as F1 paddock Club tickets cost upwards of $4000, I may have to wait another year or two!
The second round of the 2013 Formula One was held this last week end in Malaysia and saw the fabulous Red Bull team take out first and second places with German driver, Sebastian Vettel in first and Australian Mark Webber second. A controversial finish, perhaps, but that adds to the F1 flavour.
There are still a lot of races to go in 2013 so why not combine your holidays and see a Formula One event in Europe, Asia, the Middle East or North or South America? You can still get F1 tickets to many of the events, and I guarantee you will not find a more exciting sporting event all year – even those who are not big motor racing fans enjoy the events as the tracks are usually located near exciting cities with great sightseeing opportunities.
