Book your tickets for Istanbul 2020

2020 is producing one of the most unpredictable seasons in Formula 1 history. The racing action has been fiercer than ever, with every race proving to be a must-watch.

It has also thrown up the opportunity to visit some old favourites, and in November, the Turkish Grand Prix will be making a welcome return to the calendar.

Aside from great weather and the pure adrenaline rush of getting to see, hear and experience some much missed live track action this year, we have picked out just five of the top reasons to get yourself straight to this classic track.

First? The speed. This fast Istanbul circuit quickly became a favourite among fans and drivers alike with 70% of a lap spent at full throttle and Lewis Hamilton clocking a top speed of 200mph at the last outing in 2011. The cars have evolved leaps and bounds since then, so it's an exciting opportunity to see the cars pushed to their limit. 

Second, the challenge of Turn 8. A magnificent sweeping left-harder corner with four apexes the drivers have to nail. It's truly thrilling to watch if they manage to handle the car around it.

Next we step away from the track and straight into Turkey’s biggest city that is full of culture. Istanbul’s history dates back to 300BC, when it was the capital of the Eastern Roman Empire. The city is littered historical landmarks unlike you’ll see anywhere else.
But the modern city also has a bustling nightlife, making it a great place to unwind after the race.

Fourth is the one we’ve all been waiting for. Bring on the food. Turkey's cuisine is influenced by Eastern Europe, Middle Eastern, and Central Asian dishes, creating an incredible fusion of flavours. Authentic dishes you'll be enjoying between sessions include Baklava, Kebabs, Mezzes, and Turkish tea and coffee.

Finally, is the affordability. General admission tickets for the Turkish Grand Prix start as low as just £14, with full grandstand weekend tickets starting at just £111. With return flights from London to Istanbul around £100, this could be the perfect race for those who want to see racing on a budget.

How Red Bull endured its second car crash in two weeks

OPINION: Red Bull was justified to be upset that Lewis Hamilton survived his British GP clash with Max Verstappen and went on to win. But its attempts to lobby the FIA to reconsider the severity of Hamilton's in-race penalty were always likely to backfire, and have only succeeded in creating a PR disaster that will distract from its on-track efforts

OPINION: It wasn't just the Verstappen/Hamilton clash that had the Red Bull and Mercedes bosses at loggerheads at Silverstone, with the nature of Formula 1's 2025 engines also subject for disagreement. But hopes to have loud, emotive engines that are also environmentally friendly don't have to be opposed.
