For the Star stand, a three-day ticket will cost Rs. 7,500 while the Sunday-ticket is priced at Rs. 5,000.

The tickets can be bought online at and also from the Mercedes-Benz showrooms in Delhi, Noida, Gurgaon, Mumbai, Bangalore, Pune and Chandigarh.

"Formula 1 lovers now have every reason to cheer as single day race tickets have been launched together with the season tickets in order to draw more and more number of spectators for the race day. With one of the cheapest tickets available on the F1 calendar, we hope to put up another memorable racing weekend at BIC in October," Sameer Gaur, MD & CEO, JPSI, said in a release.
