    Own tablet with F1 app is good but i remember there being a tablet you could hire and it would have a frequency scanner set to all the cameras and team radios. so you could follow/watch what ever you wanted or just watch the TVfeed

    We are trying to get organised to go down. Probably do Saturday and Sunday in one of the cheaper stands. No pint spending $500 on seats each if we get there and my kids freak out at the noise and can't handle it!

    Found some reasonable Airbnb accommodation closish to the track so thats good also.
    I survived the patio flooding catastrophe of 2012.

    I think it will be great to be there for Bottas' first win.

    Getting close now. Flights, accommodation and Prost stand tickets all booked, staying Wed-Mon, can't wait. Have done Jones, Fangio and Brabham previously so this will be a nice change. Will probably check out the stands at turn 3/4 on Thursday for next year. Anybody got Piquet or Ricciardo stand tickets?

    Tried hard to get paddock club passes through a Hisense rep to no avail, again. It'll happen one year

    Any PF car rental hookups?

    So Im cancelling my trip. I have accommodation booked at The Langham near the casino. Anyone want the booking before I cancel it?

    If I can figure out how to transfer the booking its at less than half the price of the current rate. (Currently would be $2600 for Thurs to Mon, Ive got it booked at $1230)

    This is obviously assuming all your AUX outputs are doing something. Ie idle control, and the other does water spray, and the other updates your Instagram automatically etc.

    Superior King room, whatever that means

    I was in paddock club a couple years ago. Probably best to dress up a bit.

    We are in the Ricci grandstand.

    Looking forward to the pitlane walk on Thursday and the main straight on Sunday.

    We can walk to crown track and kittens. Will be a cracking weekend.

    Can't forget going to Nobu for black cod

    I will be around Sat for Quali. Weather looks like it'll be great but it's Melbourne so chances are it will change before then.

    I will be in the area for the weekend, but probably with family. Might go to qualy and watch the race on TV while listening to it in the background...

    I see the Porsche boys are running their steeds around at "moderate safe pace".

    I also just got a text message showing a rather troweled grey 991 GTS-RS...... I wonder if the words, "I should be a Group 1, I have an RS" were uttered prior.

    So appears there is some interest in a PF gathering Saturday? What would people prefer, during the day prior to qualy, or later on in the evening? At the track or somewhere in town?
