In recent years there has been a lot of criticism about the very high prices for food and drinks during the F1 races and the races in Miami and Las Vegas in particular have seen some of this. They received fierce criticism in Miami last year and that has certainly not diminished this year.

Seasoned F1 fans have known for years that high prices are charged for a pint of beer or a portion of fries during the F1 race. High inflation everywhere has caused not only ticket prices but also prices for food and drinks to rise significantly in recent years, including during the F1 races.

But in Miami they are really an outsider on the F1 calendar in that respect. For example, a ‘cheap’ ticket for the F1 race costs more than 1,000 dollars, while the more expensive tickets easily exceed 10,000 dollars. And the organizers of the Miami GP must have thought: what is possible for tickets, that is also possible for food and drinks.

Last year there was already fierce criticism of the exuberant prices for drinks and refreshments and that criticism has only increased this year because a visitor to the race posted a photo of a price list with some refreshments at the Hard Rock Beach Club on Reddit. on the track. Fans who are there should not have to watch for ten, excuse me, a hundred, more or less.

After all, a refreshing fruit salad costs $190, you read that right. And for some shrimp with sauce you can pay just under $300, $290 to be precise. By the way, if you want to add a portion of caviar to any dish, you can do so for around 400 dollars.

When you soon see the similarly overpriced prices at Spa-Francorchamps during the Belgian GP, ​​think back to the Miami GP, it could indeed be worse…
