Public registration for a total of 180 available positions is open now and will conclude at 11:59pm, 31st March 2014, local time. Positions are available in key trackside functions, including track marshals, flag marshals and fire marshals, among others.

Depending on the area of responsibility, each marshal can expect to clock a minimum of 32 hours of training. First time race officials will attend approximately seven days of theory and practical training, conducted over weekends starting in May.
Highlights of the practical training include performing recovery and extrication exercises on a Formula BMW open-wheeler and a Subaru WRX. Senior officials will also undergo specialist hands on training in fire safety and track recovery.

The only sport Akram watches is Formula One and aims to visit every race in the F1 calendar in a single year. Looks like he's going to be a busy man.

"Volunteering is generally considered an altruistic activity and is intended to promote goodness or improve human quality of life. In return, this activity can produce a feeling of self-worth and respect"

 

I don't see how this job fits any part of the above.

 

Made sense to do it for the first night race in 2008 when tickets were fully snapped up.

Now, with tickets in abundance, why do people still bother to be free labour?

Don't be stupid & volunteer. Formula 1 is a highly commercialized & profitable business. Volunteering simply means someone is making even more money. Furthermore, volunteering in Formula 1 means you are probably depriving another person of a job. Want to volunteer? Do it at a nonprofit charity!

i think its more for people who cant afford to watch the race but are sort of F1fans who would love to be part of it and also get to watch for free. Im guessing they're probably given some time to "turn-by-turn" watch the race
