    Oh man, I'd love to tag along this year but don't think I'll be able to afford it. You'll have a wicked time.

    Loads mate. You've got the F1 complex where there's shops and a museum, you can do a tour of the F1 track (if it's not in use), buy a map of the ring and go to the different viewing spots to watch other cars on track, loads of bars and restaurants. You'll be fine ;)

    No trip for me I'm afraid.

    If you do go, don't go on the track in your own car. You're not insured, and going around aslowly makes you just as likely to have an accident as someone going fast.

    I've seen insurance for around £250 a day but with some offensive excess. It's never really been an option for me over the years I've been at that price.
