Famous for its technically demanding layout, the Hungaroring is an awkward and narrow circuit just outside the wonderful city of Budapest. Loved by the drivers for the challenge it poses in the heat of summer, its delightful setting, old-school layout, and fantastic carnival atmosphere are particularly relished by the fans.
The Hungaroring is also the first circuit to have hosted a Formula 1 Grand Prix on the "other side of the Iron Curtain". Indeed, in the early 80's, Bernie Ecclestone had tried to organise a Grand Prix in the USSR. After having failed to do so, he settled for Hungary and the Hungaroring was built. The Hungarian Grand Prix has been on the calendar since 1986, establishing itself as one of Formula 1's most famous venues.
The race is the perfect excuse to combine a visit to Budapest, one of the world's most delightful cities, full of old world charm and luxury amenities with the excitement of Formula 1.
