Guests can pay $1,000 to attend the parties, getting the chance to rub shoulders with F1 drivers -- like four-time world champion Sebastian Vettel -- royalty, celebrities and supermodels.
Force India driver Nico Hulkenberg was also in attendance. He finished the season in tenth spot in the drivers' championship. CNN
