Singapore Grand Prix 2014 - Premier Walkabout vs Esplanade

This will be my first time to a GP and I have read through many many reviews and recommendations here and on other websites and have narrow down to two options - Premier Walkabout or Esplanade Grandstand.

I am torn between the two and would really appreciate any suggestions. Thanks.

Can you stand up for the whole time? Can you get to the circuit on Sunday 4 hours before the race to claim your spot on the zone 1 Bleachers? If yes go for the premier walkabout, if no go for the grandstand ticket.

Point taken. Thanks.

Of the Esplanade Grandstand I understand A3 is the best. Shall I aim to sit high up, middle section or as close to the track as possible?

Thanks.

High up and as close to the water seems to give the best view.

What about Stamford vs Esplanade? Do you think it's worth paying that bit more for the Stamford or Connaught?

I would choose Stamford, worth the premium for the view and it's also one of the easiest stands to get in and out of being right next to gate for Raffles City Shopping centre. Easy to get out in between sessions and for shelter, air conditioning and cheap refreshments. Block 3 and higher if you don't want to look to the right to see the big screen ( cars come from the left). Block 1 has the best view as the come around T7.
