One of the lines in F1 ticket says
" no professional audio/video/ photography equipment" allowed

only amerature photography allowed

The exact regulations have been posted on the F1 website, and discussed on here extensively last year and this year.

Please try some research.

The answer is.....bring a "small" dslr.

alternatively can hang out at the outskirts of the fences and "hope" something happens.

If you want to get up close shots from outside in safety, may need 600mm lens.

Anyway, what happens is if your gear is too pro then you may be asked to fill up a form in which the photos taken is only for personal use.

And the official max. focal length is 300mm, and no tripods in the grandstand...

As already discussed in the other threads.

There should be no problem. But the guys at the gate wanted to stop me from bringing in AA batteries, the in-charge told them that is ok cuz I'll need it for my cameras then I was allowed in. I was also advised by the same guy not to use my monopod.

Maybe they thought AA batteries can be used in making bombs? :)

Maybe official photog for other events but not for F1 hehe.

FIA so strict on official photog approval, I'm sure there are many like this also. It's like what? 500 published F1 photos before even being considered by FIA for application? Or something like that.
