    It looks amazing but i doubt i would even get to watch the races like they do. As it says "star-studded guest list". You would have to be minted to waste that much money on those types of seats.

    For Friday/Saturday & Sunday its over £2000, and thats per person.

    We can only dream eh'.

    I think anything where you encouter 5G and sweat buckets counts as a sport

    If I had 2 K to get rid of though, this is one the ways I would spend it.

    It's infinitely more manly than kicking a pig's ballsack on grass - that's one fact we can all be assured of.

    Hear hear.

    Although not as manly as picking up the pig's ballsack and running with it at some 18 stone monster.

    Hmmm, I dunno, I think if I was into F1 in a big way, it would be worth putting aside a few hundred pound per year as a treat.

    F1 drivers are among the fittest people in the world... fitter than most athletes. If sport is defined as "Physical activity that is governed by a set of rules or customs and often engaged in competitively" (which was the first definition when I did a google search for a definition of sport), then F1 is definitely a sport.

    But to the OP... I wouldn't blow 2 grand on that. Unless perhaps I was very rich. Sadly, I'm not.

    Which in turn is shot down by this -



    Bricks, excreting, etc.

    Regardless, there are better ways to spend £2k than sitting next to a track. For instance, a wire transfer to the "Cereal Killer Tuition Fees Fund, Registered Charity #1385406".

    :rofl:

    £2000 is a lot but that's for the all out hospitality thing, you can go and get good seats for a lot less than that. Hopefully I will go to a grand prix one day, I just need to get myself organised.

    The amount of Gs they have to take and amount of heat they have to endure for a good 1-1.5 hours isn't easy so how would you not call it a sport

    If you have 100k to spare you could crash into the back of a Ferrari waiting at a red light and cause lots of damage.

    how physically exerting or tough something is doesnt make it a sport
    although anyway i meant sporting in the 'its just not cricket' unsportsman like behaviour sense of the term. team orders telling one driver to slow down etc
