Planning Your Trip to the Qatar Grand Prix: Ticket Options, Hotel Recommendations, and Activities in Doha

In late November, Qatar will host a prestigious Formula 1 race at the Losail International Circuit near Doha. Here’s a breakdown of the trip costs, recommended hotels close to the track, and additional activities to enjoy during the Qatar Grand Prix.

The 75th season of Formula 1 starts at the end of February. There are 24 stages planned throughout the year, and the penultimate one will be held in Qatar from November 29th to December 1st. The race will take place at the Losail International Circuit, not far from the country’s capital – Doha.

Qatar Grand Prix Ticket Options

Depending on the budget, tourists can purchase tickets for the North Grandstand (with a view of the start/finish lines, pit lane, team garages, and podium ceremony), the Main Grandstand (located on the main straight, opposite the pit boxes), or the T16 Grandstand (a side grandstand with views of the cars before they enter the main straight). VIP-level fans are offered a special bonus: exclusive access to the Paddock Club, a complex located directly above the pit lane and team garages. This allows you to see the racing cars and team operations during pit stops up close.

What’s Included with Qatar Grand Prix Tickets

A ticket to the Formula 1 in Qatar includes entry for all three days of the event to the corresponding grandstand, access to the fan village (entertainment, events for adults and children), access to the food court (local and international cuisine), entry to all Formula 1 concerts after the race, and free transfer from Lusail Metro Station to the racetrack and back.

Best Hotels for Your Formula 1 Trip to Qatar
