Thank you so much for all your replies I really appreciate it. It sounds as though it might be out of my price range. I did consider Silverstone but I am not sure if it would be a better experience for us to go away for a couple of days as a little break or to get better seats at somewhere like Silverstone. I am only considering going to the race day as our son will get bored going a couple of days in the row, which is why I wasnt sure about Silverstone as one day might not seem as much as an experience as a mini break. Somebody mentioned Germany, would this be a good alternative to Monaco as the plan would be to spend Saturday sightseeing, see the race on Sunday and then fly back on Monday. I know Monaco has a great racing reputation which is why I initially thought of it but as I dont know much about racing I would happily consider other places if the price and experience were right.

Once again can I say thank you for all your help as I realise I am asking simple questions but really want to try to get this right, which is why I am looking into this 5 months in advance.

Which is her favorite circuit?

I would feel safe saying most F1 fans would prefer to see the Belgium GP at Spa over the German GP.

next years german gp is at Hockenhiem i belive (it is in doubt tho) the nearest town is Frankfurt and from my experience there wasn't much there and its very corperate, not sure about sight seeing there.

Spa is more rual i think so might be better there.

If the F1 is at Donngton rather than Silverstone next year (for the british GP) Dontington is right in the derby county side also theres a excellent F1 museum there also

Hockenheim though offers an excellent viewing experience.

Thanks again. I will try to find out sneakily what is her favourite race and I appreciate the comments regarding Germany and Belgium.
