The Ritz-Carlton and Marriott Bonvoy Bring Exceptional Experiences to the Grand Prix


A new partnership between the powerhouse brands and the world-renowned event.

The Formula 1® Heineken® Australian Grand Prix 2022 has announced a new partnership with the Ritz-Carlton and Marriott Bonvoy.

The partnerships will see the powerhouse brands collaborate to bring Exceptional Experiences and Exclusive Benefits to VIP Marriott Bonvoy members and guests around the track. The announcement follows the news that The Ritz-Carlton is set to expand its presence in Australia, with a second property opening in Melbourne in 2022.

Marriott Bonvoy is Marriott International’s global travel program, delivering unrivalled rewards and exceptional experiences to members. The Ritz-Carlton, a participant of Marriott Bonvoy, is renowned for providing its guests with unforgettable experiences and legendary service in the world’s best destinations. The brand re-entered Australia in late 2019 with the opening of The Ritz-Carlton, Perth, and will bring a timeless, distinctive luxury that will set new benchmarks when it opens in Melbourne late in 2022.

After the disruptions of the last two years, the Formula 1® Heineken® Australian Grand Prix 2022 has returned bigger and better than ever to Albert Park. Marriott Bonvoy members and those who sign up during the event will have exclusive access to a series of unforgettable, money-can’t-buy experiences trackside at this exhilarating, glamorous event.

Friday Grandstand tickets for the Formula 1®️ Heineken®️ Australian Grand Prix 2022 are available from $91. Get them before they sell out.

Marriott Bonvoy members will be able to use their points to bid for a range of insider experiences at the Formula 1® Heineken® Australian Grand Prix 2022. For members who particularly love the Formula 1® Australian Grand Prix, these experiences will amplify the event in ways they could never imagine.

Experiences include:

  • Tickets to the exclusive Glamour on the Grid cocktail party – attended by the who’s who of Australia’s A-list, the event kicks off the Formula 1® Heineken® Australian Grand Prix 2022
  • A lap of the circuit of the Albert Park circuit in a course car
  • A Pit Canopy experience – normally something experienced only by Formula 1® team members, Marriott Bonvoy members will have the opportunity to watch the race from the pit wall canopy, where the teams’ TV screens and communications are set up. Members will also get to listen to the race via headphones hooked into the communications system
  • A Pit Lane walk – members will walk along the pit area to see the Formula 1® cars

Marriott Bonvoy will take over the Paddock Lounge at the Formula 1® Heineken® Australian Grand Prix 2022 for the second year running, providing A-list guests and members with an elevated experience. The Paddock Lounge sits at the entry to the Paddock area of the event, where all the drivers and teams prep for the races and relax in between. It’s the place to see and be seen. Marriott Bonvoy Lounge ticketholders that are members of Marriott Bonvoy or who sign up – for free – during the Formula 1® Heineken® Australian Grand Prix will also have access to a Marriott Bonvoy ‘members-only’ viewing platform on the roof of the Lounge, offering VIP views of the track.

Also returning for the second year will be Marriott Bonvoy’s Buggy service, offering Marriott Bonvoy members - or those who sign up to the program during the event week - chauffeured transfers around the Albert Park grounds. During what are exciting but long days at the event, anyone taking a Marriott Bonvoy Buggy will feel like a VIP.

Sean Hunt, Area Vice President, Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific, Marriott International said, “The Formula 1® Australian Grand Prix is a truly landmark event, and a great opportunity for us to showcase the exceptional experiences and unique access that a Marriot Bonvoy membership provides. With the return of the Formula 1® Heineken® Australian Grand Prix 2022, we are excited to partner with The Ritz-Carlton to host our members for an unforgettable, exhilarating trackside experience, and to bring our Marriott Moments program to life.”

Andrew Westacott, CEO, Australian Grand Prix Corporation said, “We’re thrilled to partner with The Ritz-Carlton and Marriott Bonvoy ahead of the Formula 1® Heineken® Australian Grand Prix 2022. The Marriott Bonvoy program embodies exceptional luxury experiences and first-class hospitality, which are synonymous with Formula 1®, making this the perfect partnership for fans.”
