Formula 1 Hungarian Grand Prix in Budapest
Posted by Mia Balogh · Jul 17, 2014

Speed, power, fantastic atmosphere at the Hungarian racetrack – experience the charisma of Formula 1 in Budapest, from 25 to 27 July, on the weekend of the Hungarian Grand Prix.

If you are a Formula 1 fan, and you can spend some days in Budapest at the end of July, then don’t miss the F1 Hungarian Grand Prix. The event takes a whole weekend, from 25 to 27 July: there are qualifying trainings on the 25-26th and the race on the 27th.

The racetrack is located near Budapest, next to Mogyoród, a small town approximately 20 kilometres from the capital. The circuit was built in a valley so you can enjoy the unique atmosphere and the race from almost every part of it.

The Hungarian Grand Prix is an important part of the Formula 1 race calendar since 1986. This was the first Formula One race held behind the Iron Curtain and it was won by Nelson Piquet (Williams-Honda).

We are sure that after 27 years of racing, his year’s Hungarian Grand Prix won’t be boring, either. During the approximately 90 minutes of the race, the drivers need to stay focused and hydrated, because it will be a hot summer weekend.

Did you know?

With a valid F1 race ticket, you can also take a pit walk on Friday, 25 July, between 16.00 and 19.00. You can see the pit lane, racing cars, and meet some engineers and drivers there.
