Uber Guide to Formula One Weekend 2013

It’s all glitz and glam on the race and party circuits… but we all know it’s a little less fast and a lot more furious trying to get a ride over the F1 weekend. In anticipation, we’ve put together a few tips to make sure your weekend is a big hit.

MORE RIDES ON THE ROAD

As expected, demand for rides is going to be off the charts this weekend. We’ve definitely added a lot more cars to the system so if you can’t get a ride, try again in a few minutes, cars will be freeing up constantly.

SURGE PRICING

As always, Uber strives to be a reliable ride, even during the madness of F1. Surge pricing will be in effect when demand begins to exceed supply. You’ll always be able to see and confirm current pricing in the app.

CALL YOUR DRIVER

If requesting for pick ups around the race circuit area, giving your driver a call to confirm your location is definitely advisable for a smooth pick-up despite the road closures and crowds.

CONFIRM IT’S YOUR UBER

Always confirm you’re getting into the right car. Double check your driver’s license plate number and have him confirm you’re the rider he’s waiting to pick up – it’s easy to get rides swapped in crowded places.

ENSURE PICK UP LOCATION IS ACCESSIBLE TO DRIVERS

Race circuit affected roads will be closed from Sept 18  to Sept 23. The below enclosed area (in red) indicates where drivers have no access to and thus where you should NOT request rides from. Walk outside of the race area before requesting your ride and make things even easier by setting your pickup location away from the masses and contacting your driver with a clear landmark
