The ticket sale for the Heineken Formula 1 Italian Grand Prix 2021 starts today. The race event will take place in the Autodromo Nazionale Monza on 12 September 2021. The circuit will be able to welcome a number of fans reduced by 50% compared to the past and only spectators with a European green pass during the race weekend from September 10 to 12., respecting all the Covid-19 regulations in force, including those concerning the distance, as specified by the decree we were all waiting for. The event, which marks a partial return to normality for all motorsport fans after more than a year of behind closed doors activities, will take place exactly one hundred years after the first Italian Grand Prix of 1921 in Montichiari (Brescia).
The Monza National Circuit will be accessible only to Green pass holders, as established by the decree law issued by the Council of Ministers, on the proposal of the President Mario Draghi and the Minister of Health Roberto Speranza. The „passport“ will allow the Autodromo to welcome the public for all three days of the weekend, with a number of tickets on sale that will be less than 50 percent of the maximum capacity available. In the public there will be vaccinated people, people healed from Covid-19 or people with a molecular or antigenic test negative result. Fans will be Italian or coming from all those countries allowed by the Ministry of Domestic Affairs.
For the so-called EU digital COVID certified holders, seats on the stands and bleachers will be sold online for every single day of the race. There will be the opportunity to pay for a „weekend ticket“ that will allow the spectator to access the circuit on Friday, Saturday and Sunday at a promotional price. In the case of new government measures allowing more people in the Circuit, the number of seats assigned at the time of purchase could be modified as a result of a reduction in distance.
Tickets can be purchased on the official website of the Circuit www.monzanet.it and on Ticketone website www.ticketone.it., which is the only authorized retailer. It will not be possible to buy tickets at the entrance of the National Circuit Monza. The only way is to buy tickets in advance through the indicated sales channels. To access the event, it will be necessary to complete a check-in procedure, similar to the one used in airports, that will help tracking spectators in order to guarantee the protection of the public health.
The definition of the ticket prices for Formula 1 Heineken Grand Prix of Italy 2021 takes into account the reduction in seat capacity imposed by our current law and the debut of the new Sprint Qualifying on Saturday, September 11, from 4.30 pm to 5 pm. The new format will determine the Sunday grid for the Grand Prix; it will consist of a fast and spectacular race of approximately 100 km with all the cars on the track. This activity will be preceded by an hour of free practice on Saturday morning at 12 pm. On Friday, instead, there will be the first one-hour free practice from 2:30 pm to 3:30 pm and qualifying sessions from 6 pm to 7 pm that will determine the starting grid of the Sprint Qualifying the next day. On Sunday the standard program will remain the same with the race starting at 3 pm.
Throughout the weekend, the Fan Zones will guarantee entertainment activities for the public and spectators in the stands will be able to follow all the track sessions and live connections of F1 TV reporters through the maxi screens installed in the Circuit, not to miss even a minute of the action and the “behind the scenes” of the event. This year Monza National Circuit will offer a variety of activities which won’t be exclusively sport-related.
If the event is declared behind door closed or if it is necessary to reduce the number of seats available due to the change in legislation linked to the epidemiological situation, excess tickets already purchased will be refunded for the full value of the face price, according to a priority order based on the purchase date. More information about tickets and how to access the event are available on www.monzanet.it.
