As one half of the largest grandstand on the circuit, Prima Variante B is situated at the end of the pit straight with a view of the famous first chicane, and Curva Grande.
What can I see?
These seats offer a view of the famous first chicane at Monza. With cars coming out of the first DRS zone of the lap, where cars within one second of another car can activate the DRS, making the car aerodynamically faster than it's rival - you may see cars side by side as they enter the chicane. With the cars bunched up in the tight chicane at the start of the race, it can make the opening laps eventful. Should their be any incidents in the first chicane, this is the prime location to view them.
Please note that Monza is a national park, and that there are areas of forest within the grounds that may be in view from parts of this stand. If you have any queries, please get in touch.
What do I get with my ticket?
Prima Variante 8B is reserved seating on Saturday and Sunday. The circuit operate a roving policy on Friday 4th September, giving you roaming access to all general admission areas and grandstands (with the exception of Centrale). All 3-Day tickets will have access to the Thursday Pit Lane Walk, subject to confirmation.

The logistics are disastrous. Very poorly organized. Displays and scans tickets in both directions at all times when leaving the stands. Very few entrances to the stands and so they are in the wrong place. Should be before food and beer places and then just a controller who helps one to "right" stands. Better and more means of transport to and from the track. took a very long time. Great course and an exciting race, nothing to complain about there.

From beginning with pit lane walk, to race at turn 1 #8 stand, a great weekend racing experience. We sat in a covered stand for the Friday practice to avoid some rain. #8b seats were great with good vantage of first turn, although looking thru fence made picture taking difficult. The audio was good for our seats. The screen across the road was okay although the car penalty announcements were almost impossible to read due to small print. Getting into the circuit at gate b was a challenge on Sunday with poor organization. We then went to gate c and had a quick access to #8. Unfortunately we could not easily go to the inner field area since had to exit the controlled area and then re-enter with big lineups.

The race weekend was fantastic. i had a 3 day ticket at Turn 1, stand 8b. but on the friday i decided to stand at the pit straight for FP1 and then Ascari for FP2. FP3, qualy and the race we sat in our allocated seats and they were fantastic. great view and lots of action. on the sunday we saw many overtakes including the race winning move from lewis. food and drink was nice but expensive and the ticketing system works fairly well. i would say there needs to be more seating areas near the food so more people can sit down and i think there could be more activities near that part of the track as there wasnt much to do between the different events. overall i would recommend and would certainly go again myself!!

Bookf1have been really good. But I would suggest you provide more education up front on travel. He Italian metro operators are basically operating a scam selling people the wrong tickets in Milan the. Gangs of inspectors fining everyone at the end of the tube line sesto fs. This needs to be made public. The track itself is so disorganised and st the end of the race be prepared not to watch the last 10 laps as people starting standing at the front to get in the track. The stewards do nothing. I would prefer to try other f1 venues.

From the moment you got to the track, you were left on your own! Very few signs and had to ask stewards all the time for directions! Impossible to get around if you have ANY difficulty walking! Very frustrating and unnecessary Race was amazing though.

I booked three day weekend tickets in Prima Variante stand but no idea which row on seat number. Our seats were perfect, right opposite big screen and within yards of the run off area where we saw plenty of action. Great circuit. Queues not too bad, drive in and out relatively easy. The whole grand prix has great atmosphere.

The race and the atmosphere are amazing, however the facilities are appalling - a €207 ticket in a stand of about 7500 people there were only 5 toilets within the security, to use the portaloos uounhad to go through security again - and they were frankly disgusting. There was a quite incomprehensible policy regarding taking water in - the main area you could take a large bottle with no lid, in our area just a 500ml one - of course on a very hot Sunday race day water was for sale at a higher price than the previous 3 days. The stewards in our area were hopeless, constant issues with people standing at the railings so those behind could not see. If Liberty Media want to improve F1 they need to get out of the Paddock Club and actually spend time With the real fans in our atrocious facilities.

Fantastic weekend in beautiful surroundings in Parco di Monza. Adverse conditions during qualifying on Saturday gave other teams a good chance and a starting line-up different from the usual two teams up front. Things to remember when travelling to the Formula 1 in Italy are; * there's quite some distance between the parking/ station/ shuttle bus drop-off, so wear good walking shoes. If it is raining it will be muddy. * most stands are plain steel beams, so bring something to sit on (also available for purchase in the stores in the main shopping area). * bring cash. No cash machines / ATM's available at the Circuit, and not all the food / beverage / misc. vendors accept credit cards. * leave your umbrellas at home, you are ruining the view for everyone else. Bring a rain poncho or similar. * only plastic containers allowed. This goes for everything from sun screen protection to water.

If you want to go to Monza, I suggest you read this. The organisation and facilities at this circuit are appalling. We have been to many circuits around the world but this was our first visit to Monza. Our seats were at stand 8… stand 8b to be precise. We searched on line for the best way to get to the circuit and on numerous sites were advised that on the Saturday, we had to travel from Milano Centrale to Monza station, as the train to Biassono Lesmo did not run on the Saturday. So, we did as advised and boarded our train at Centrale. It was raining heavily. After a 30-minute ride, we got off the train at Monza and boarded a bendy bus. All reasonably smooth. Another 20/25-minute ride on the bus, we were dumped a mile or so from the southern end of the track. Still raining. After walking a mile to the southern end of the track we hit the 1st of many pointless queues. Knowing that our stand was at the 1st chicane we missed the first queue and attempted to walk around the outside of the track. For some unknown reason, we were prevented from doing so and had to go into the circuit to continue to our stand, where we had our tickets scanned for the first time. There were hardly any directional signs and a distinct lack of staff who had the slightest inclination of what was going on. After being directed out of the circuit and back in again, queuing each time to have our tickets scanned and traipsing for another hour through the mud, we finally arrived at stand 8 only to find ourselves at the back of a very long queue to get into the stand. The queue was not moving and the rain was still hammering down. By this time, we had been travelling for nearly four hours, mostly on foot and in the pouring rain. Q1 was an hour away and it was at this point we realised that if the rain persisted, qualifying would probably be postponed, even until Sunday morning. Having stood for another ten minutes where the queue had not budged, we decided to give up and go back to Milan. We walked out of the nearest exit to the main road and eventually flagged down a taxi and paid £50 for a ride back to our hotel, where we got out of our soaking wet clothes, showered and went for lunch. Qualifying, had been postponed several times and started at 4.40pm, so by the time we had lunch and calmed down, we got back to the hotel and watched it on TV. I know that they could not control the weather but the lack of organisation and information, the unnecessary queueing and scanning of tickets all compounded the misery of being soaked to the skin. Sunday- Race day: It was nice and sunny! Travelling to the circuit was much easier. We travelled from Milano Centrale to Biassono Lesmo which is at the northern part of the circuit and very close to the entrance for Stands 9 and 10, which are situated by the 2nd chicane. There was a huge queue to get into that gate but we missed that and walked around the outside of the circuit to the gate nearest to stand 8. The queue wasn’t bad and when we got to the stand it was a fairly small queue to get into the stand…. Tickets scanned again. However, it was a little confusing because the stand was marked as 8a… we had tickets for 8b. We asked where 8b was. Again, the stewards didn’t seem to know anything. We ended up just going to the numbered seats in stand 8a and hoping that we were in the right ones. From boarding the train to sitting in our seat it had taken 90 minutes which was not bad at all but we had set off earlier than on the Saturday (8.00am train & 9.30am in our seats). Soon after, we discovered that if we wanted to get anything to eat or drink, or go to the toilet, we had to queue up to get out of the stand and have our tickets scanned (in and out) yet again. Until about 11.30am this wasn’t too bad… the queues were bearable. After that, the queues to get out of the stand were ridiculous. The queues for the food/drink were horrendous and the queues to get back into the stand were equally bad. Why there was a need to scan everyone in and out of the stand was beyond me. I understand the heightened security considering the recent terror attacks but there didn’t appear to be any sense to it at all. We had already had our tickets checked on entering the circuit, why were the toilets facilities and food and drink stands not within the security boundary? Which now brings me to the facilities….. The food and drink stands were completely inadequate for the number of people in that stand. After 11.30am it was an hour-long queue to get a drink or something to eat. And from what I saw of the food (because I certainly didn’t get a chance to eat any of it), all that was on offer were cheese and ham sandwiches or chips. And the port-a-loos…. The worst I’ve experienced anywhere. We left straight after the chequered flag, walked back to Biassono Lesmo and on to Milan. Travelling to and from the circuit was far better on the Sunday than it was on the Saturday. We discovered from other race-goers that we could have got a train from Garibaldi station to Biassono Lesmo on the Saturday. Hindsight is a wonderful thing. In conclusion, we loved Milan but we will never be going back to the Italian Grand Prix at Monza. For a purpose-built circuit, the facilities are very poor indeed. It’s worse than Barcelona (although, once in the know, the travel facilities are better). Silverstone is head and shoulders above Monza for facilities, food, drink and general organisation. If you are determined to go to this race, my recommendations are as follows: 1: We like to be seated on a bend or a chicane, which is why we went for stand 8. With the knowledge we have now, I would go for 9 or 10, due to their proximity to Biassono Lesmo station. 2: Consider a covered stand. Unfortunately, I don’t think there are many and those that are covered are not on bends or chicanes. 3: Don’t bother with qualification if heavy and persistent rain is forecast. In fact, if you are in an uncovered stand and the weather forecast is bad, don’t go at all. I hope this helps!

Alles sehr gut, ausser das für die Verpflegung über 1h wir anstehen mussten. Ansonsten alles tip top!

As a spectator,this was the worst organised GP that I have ever been to,and I have been to no less than twelve international races,some twice or three times. I guess that if you are in a grandstand on the inner part of the circuit that you are able to leave your seat to get a drink or something to eat without going through security. We were sat close to the chicane, at the end of the main straight.It took us half an hour of queuing to pass through security outside of our grandstand,and we had to go through this rigor every time we wanted a drink or somethind to eat because the facilities were outside of the security zone. The organisers need to learn from Silverstone where there are security and ticket checks at the external perimeter and no further checks,apart from a quick check on entering a grandstand to ensure that you are entitled to be there. When you did get to a food or drink location,there were too few people serving with a take it or leave it attitude knowing that you had no choice but to once again queue for ages to get served. I for one will not be going to Monza again,but I will continue to go to other international events

The transport link on race day is straightforward and good from central rail station. Every other day it is very poor with none of the track personel providing any information on how to get back to the shuttle bus. Add to this the walk from the drop off point to the main gate is one and a half miles. The transport is so bad we must have walked 8 to 10 miles on the Saturday. Getting to our seats and then the impossible task of finding a way back. We have never had this trouble at any other race track. It's a shame as when you get there the event is week run. Won't be going back.

Excellent weekend . We stayed in centre of Milan, race day travel was easy by using the underground and buses, recommend starting early as buses soon get busy, be prepared after the race for a wait for the buses. Atmosphere was what you would expect from the Italians, brilliant. Facilities were adequate with plenty of food and drink but be prepared to queue, prices were not expensive.

Really good day at the F1.It is not an easy circuit to get to by public transport. We opted to get a taxi there which was 60 Euros from the Crowne Plaza Linate. It helped that there were four of us to spread the cost out. Once in the circuit- there is a long walk to get to your seats as well. We left at 10am from the hotel as we wanted to make sure that we had enough time to get there and to find where our seats were. The beers are about 7 Euros each so be prepared to pay quite a bit for food and drink. The toilets are not nice at all - make sure you take your own tissue paper and hand wipes as there are no facilities to wash your hands.

We have been to Monza for the last three years and it is great to see that the 'Temple of Speed' has survived to live another day. Noting that for many folk this was their first time at Monza can we share a few wee tips & tricks re access on the 3 days, photo spots etc. Worth getting sandwiches at the Monza railway station before going into the circuit. ;) Fri FP1: I have always set up for FP1 at Della Roggia. It is the perfect spot for photography. You need to get there early (certainly on or about 0800-0830) to sit in the right hand stand. Cracking views of car entry into the chicane and some super shots on the exits. On Friday we have always gone to Lesmo station rather than Monza. 200m from Lesmo gate entry point and 5 minutes walk to Della Roggia. There is a sandwich bar/burger place conveniently behind the Della Roggia stands. Fri FP2. Worth a wander round to the start/finish straight. Get high up the back and some cracking shots (lens dependent) into the various garage areas. The area opposite the Ferrari garage is usually pretty busy since the Ferrari supporters club block book that section across the weekend, and even on Friday is quite busy. Parabolica is also worth a look for photos. Also where the old circuit crosses over the entry point into Lesmo 2 there is a superb wee perch at the bridge. Get there before the Italians and you will have a near uninterrupted view back up the straight to the Della Roggia exit. The vantage point is well above the line of the fencing and is just over the track. ;) Sat & Sun kind of take care of themselves, but one option to consider travel wise both there & back is to take the Milan Metro red line to Sesto Maggio (the terminus). Make sure that if travelling from Central Milan (e.g. Lima which is nearest our flat in town) that you buy an extra urban ticket with the extra zone (a bit like London Underground). It is 2.50 Euros. Sesto station there are a number of trains transiting through Monza - not just the pre-arranged trains from town. Likewise, repeat when you get back. Get off at Sesto Maggio and then jump on the Metro. Which is invariably very quiet on the way out & back ;) We're doing Barcelona next year as our 'away trip' - for those who enjoyed Monza - have a great time in 2016. V & A W

What a great weekend , great atmosphere and an exciting race in glorious sunshine in the park. My 2 complaints are that there were no cash machines to take money out at the site and if you found yourself choosing between making a train from Milan to Monza or grabbing cash and having to wait 30 minutes for the next one you will severely struggle to pay for food or beer at the circuit. My other issue is that the on each of the days we went to th circuit (sat and Sunday) the train shuttle bus combo dropped us off at different ends of the biggest park in Europe meaning a hell of a lot of walking and head scratching trying to decipher the piss poor signage. Bernie I hope your going to ensure Monza organisers upgrade the signage, supply some mobile cash machines and get the shuttles to drop you closer to the track from 2017. apart from those issues perfect weekend.
