Excellent weekend

My only complaint was the travelling to and from Budapest to circuit. Transport by bus was horrendous, people were squeezed onto buses like sardines in cans and there was a complete lack of organisation leaving the circuit. Wouldn't go again due to the disorganisation of transport at this event!!

Great atmosphere, bad transporting

It was a great experience, friendly and civilised spectators all around. The view to the circuit not that great for a general admission ticket holder, if you want to also have a glimpse at the podium. The only real drawback was the transporting away from the circuit, which is awful: total chaos and lots of misinformations received from the officials around the circuit. If you want to avoid stress, you need to have some 4-5 free hours after the race to get back to your destination in Budapest. I can suggest placing some FREE BUS STATION signs and arrows towards both BUS and TRAIN stations for people to find them more easily. All in all, a nice feeling to be so close to the cars and drivers. Cheers!

Fantastic race, great atmosphere, let down by fan transport

The race was excellent and the atmosphere around the track in general admission was a brilliant experience. There was plenty of food and drink outlets and queues weren't too long. Same with the toilets. My only issue came right at the end when trying to get back to the city. The fan buses weren't ready for the end of the race and we were left waiting out in the sun for what felt like ages. When the bus did arrive we chose the option to go to the nearby train station to catch a train back to the city but found that the trains were only running every 30 minutes and were arriving at the station completely full up which meant we saw 3 trains go by before there was space for us. Not the most efficient operation! HOWEVER once on the train we were entertained by a passionate group of Kubica and Verstappen fans which soon alleviated our frustration.

Road trip to Budapest

Having watched the German race on TV my son thought we should go to the next race if possible. So not being at work that week I bought a a weekend general admissions ticket for each of the family, a ticket on the Euro tunnel, checked that there were Tesla chargers across Europe and set off on Wednesday from London. Two days and 1,100 miles [1,750 Kl] later we were in Budapest. We spent Saturday and Sunday at the track and had a fantastic time. At times the views were not that good and the audio could be a lot better in this day and age but the app was essential and explained what was going on. We were delighted with the occasion and it was well worth a 2,282 mile round trip, although next time I will fly even if it is greener in an electric car! Any downsides were small and expected - 50 Euro far a cap is a bit steep! the food prices varied (generally upwards) and of course driving out after the race was horrific. All in all a great location, a great weekend and I would recommend anyone with a teenage son to make the journey.

Great introduction to F1

Had a great weekend at the hungaroring. Our first visit to a F1 race weekend. The circuit itself is great and plenty of vantage points even on the extremely well priced general admission. Booking with bookf1 was an absolute pleasure and tickets were delivered with plenty of time to spare.

Great experience

Great weekend allround. Quick word of advide - don't rely on the free buses arranged by the race organisers to get you there. It is one bus every 30 minutes, and a couple of thousand people queing. Better to get the train then walk the final 1-2 km.

Great weather / atmosphere but crap visibility!

Not enough big screens to make accessibility for all easily achieved.

Good event, terrible transport

The event and race itself was quite good. Having good turnaround times between races meant that there was always something to watch. I had general admission and the viewing areas were dotted around the track in fairly good positions. On race day I was standing next to the grandstand on the straight going into turn 1 which was a great viewing spot and was near to the bathrooms, food stalls etc.. However on Saturday getting to and from the trakctrack was an absolute nightmare. Budapest city council clearly have no idea this event happens or simply don't care as they didn't provide more frequent metros, the H8 train we had to get from Örs Vezer Tere was completely packed to the point that we could hardly breathe, and the shuttle buses were far far too infrequent and the line to get on it was at least an hour long. That really sucked the fun out of going to the event for me. We used a taxi to get there on Saturday and got ripped off as he turned his meter off and pretended his card machine didn't work. So for the future my advice would be: - Get the metro to Örs Vezer Tere and get a taxi from there. - Make sure that it's an official Hungaroring taxi (there'll be a sticker on the front windscreen) or prepare to get ripped off. Our taxi driver almost got a beatdown by the police so there's definitely something shady going on. On the way back forget the shuttle's and train and go directly to the official taxi station not far from the main entrance and save yourself the hassle. The taxi is around £25 each way which isn't too bad if you're sharing. All in all it was an enjoyable weekend still, but I'd definitely do it differently next time. And Budapest get your transport sorted for that weekend!!!

Great, but hard to get in and out

I loved the Hungaroring, the race the organization is good and I really enjoyed the race. The only issue is getting in and out of the venue. To get in the best way is to get the free shuttle from the metro station, however it only runs until 1.20pm, if you're late, then it gets complicated as you have to take the train and walk a lot (or get a taxi). To return things get even more complicated, the shuttle bus line is eternal. The best way to return is to walk to the Szilasliget train station (25min approx) and then catch the train back. Of course all of this will be packed with people so expect to wait in line for a while. Yet, besides this issues of getting in and out I think it is an incredible experience!

Great race and track but rubbish access / viewing for general admission

Overall a great experience but unfortunately it was spoilt by the lack of veiwing areas and access for general admission ticket holders, the fences spoilt the good veiwing points of the track and the security spoilt the experience by asking us to stand up in good veiwing areas then our view was spoilt by top of the fencing being solid panels so when we stood up we couldnt see for the panelling , we were constantly asked to stand up or move areas also the fan zones were limited and made one way access after the 1st two days which made it hard for toileting, food, walking availability and also we were made to feel very low class for being general admission, i felt that as we travelled from the UK to see this event and it was disappointing because of the above, compared to Silveratone general admission access which is the whole track and fanzones are accessible for all general admission and we were allowed to sit in the grand stands in the lead up to the event which made are experience of silverstone alot more inviting plus the fencing is less invasive and there are more veiwing points for all ticket holders.

Hungarian Grand Prix 2019

The circuit staff are an utter disgrace! On the first day they could not find our tickets (already paid for) for over an hour and several calls back to the UK booking agent, which meant we very nearly missed the pit lane walk and then they were the wrong tickets. So the next morning the tickets no longer worked and we were accused of having stolen them and made to wait another hour (missing racing) and more calls to the UK before they finally produced our real tickets. Then we were told it was our fault for not been patience enough the previous day for them to do their job properly! Also the food at the circuit is ridiculously expensive (£15 for any food- burger/ pasta/ even pancake) and the service dreadful as this simply is no queuing just a free for all. Finally the traffic control is an absolute joke, the one way system changes at least daily and sometimes just whenever they feel like it. We left before the final lap on the last day and still spent over 2 hours queuing to get to the main road, while the endless police and security staff escort empty buses up and then back down (still empty). oh and if you take an umbrella it will be confiscated on the way in but you can buy one of theirs for €50 when inside! On the positive side, the actual racing was great and there was ONE programme seller who was polite. To maximise your experience I would a) go to another track or b) get your tickets posted to you well in advance, go to the supermarket and take your own food in and then just stay at the track until 9pm on the final day before attempting to leave.

Terrific Hungarian GP Experience

The whole day was thoroughly enjoyable. The arrangements for picking up our tickets went like clockwork, the weather was fantastic, Lewis won a thrilling race and my son had his first experience of F1 live and wants to repeat it next year. The Hungaroring is a marvellous venue and great value compared to other circuits. We’ll be booking earlier next year to secure grandstand seats (this year was a last-minute decision and the grandstands were sold out), but all-in-all, we had a terrific time.

1st Hungarian GP

Great atmosphere! Facilities were better than expected Drinking water readily available We had General Admission tickets and were therefore excluded from certain areas Big disappointment was the lack of screens for viewing and very limited commentary areas We would go again but would purchase stand tickets Transport home on race day Could have done with a few more buses Brilliant friendly atmosphere

Great weekend

Cheapest way to experience F1. Easy to get around for people who don’t speak the native Hungarian language. Only downside is that security should pay more attention for general wellbeing in certain areas with general admission areas (enforce people to sit down to not block the view instead of atanding up) and enforce a way for placing oversized flags) City of Budapest has a lot of amazing places. Worth getting a weekend ticket to explore the city. Great value for the money you pay. Prices in the track aren’t skyrocketing. Beers are going for 1000HUF which is around 3,5euro. Food vendors have a lot of varietys aswell for good prices. Toilets are always maintained to a very great standart. Even with all the people in there. Public transport gets you around in a really quick way and is cheap. DON’T OPT TO TAKE TAXIS BECAUSE THEY WILL MOST LIKELY OVERCHARGE YOU FOR 80-100EUROS TO GO OUT FROM THE TRACK TO THE CITY CENTER!!! Normal price would be around 20-40EUR! Do not be scared to stand in the line to take the bus which is FREE for every F1 attendant. The queue will be big but even standing at the far end of the whole queue at GATE 3 will be around a 40minute wait.

Great weekend at the f1

Great weekend, everything inside the race circuit was well run and easy to get to for things such as food, drink and toilets. Queue times were very quick and the exsperience was pleasent. The only bad thing about the weekend was getting home. People queuing for hours to be told no more buses or taxis were being offered. Me and my husband ended up walking it an hour to the train station to find our way back to the city centre. All part of the adventure I suppose but after a long day it’s not ideal

Hot, too crowded, lack of services

General admission was not the best idea. Too crowded, visibility depends on whether someone stands up in the front row and no chair policy backfired as everyone took large blankets and having too much space. Let’s not forget the touching squad employed to deprive people of their drinks during +34 Celsius and places that sell drinks without possibility to pay with credit card. Part of it my fault due to lack of research but heads up could be given proactively. Otherwise it was fun and crowd was awesome.

Good value, fun, hot - prepare!

I had a mostly positive time in Hungary. The food was cheap, transportation easy and all the bookf1.com-recommended services worked well for me. Having the little A5 folder for ticket and other essential items was especially appreciated. Advice: - Budapest is hot. Budapest is hot. Budapest is hot. Glad we got that out of the way. - If you have a disability (like me), bring advice about what to do in an emergency with you - in Hungarian. I had some, but it was in English, and I ended up being treated for the disability instead of the heatstroke for which I needed treatment, through a mutual miscommunication. - Using the sleeper train to go from Prague to Budapest is a lovely idea, but if using it, do remember to print out the ticket and bring it with you. (The same applies to all your travel tickets. Your race ticket will be in the BookF1 mini-folder, which makes it easy to check you have actually packed this item...) - Get a 3- or 7-day Budapest travelcard. The latter is 4950 Forints and will cover the metro, bus and trains within Budapest. Also, you'll only need two 250 Forint Suburban Railway tickets (Ilonatep-Mogyorod) per day instead of two 600 Forint version, should you prefer to take the train (for example, because it is Pit Walk Day). You will probably have made enough journeys to justify the cost of the correct length of travelcard for your stay before race day has even begun. Note that this is different from a Budapest Card, which is much pricier but also allows free entry to many attractions in addition to the free/cheap transportation. - I stayed at the V61 Hostel (when not in hospital). Cheap, clean, efficient and will literally go the extra mile to help you if you are in trouble. - The free F1 Bus is brilliant. On the three days of the race weekend, it can be picked up from either Budapest city itself (in a bus station near a metro station) or near Mogyorod train station, and it goes to the bottom of the hill on which the track is located. - Consider taking one 0.5 litre bottle to drink while walking to the track and binning it in sight of the gate marshals, leaving your main (again, 0.5 litre) water bottle untouched in your bag. Guards are particular about the size (1.5 litre bottles should be put in a locker for the return trip, if accidentally brought), so make sure every member of your party carries their own bottle in their own bag. - The water from the sinks at the side of the toilets is hard but perfectly potable. Bring filters for your water bottles if you live in a very soft-water area, but otherwise, you will do well to drink early and refill often. Do *not* wait for your body to give the signals. If you prefer flavoured water, fill your "main" 0.5 litre bottle with the flavouring, then buy a drink bottle (fruit juice is the same price as mineral water) and refill the water component from the portaloo toilets as needed. - If you have enough water, walking from Mogyrod station to the track is safe and enjoyable, because traffic through the village is limited. - Bring your Hungarian textbook to shops. Some give better service if you ask in Hungarian. In fact, some give better service if you simply remember to preface your (English) request with "Kezem" (Hungarian for "please"). More of an issue in the village than in the city, and hardly any vendor at the circuit will care if you ask in Hungarian or English. - Your ticket will mention not to touch the fence. Take it seriously. That fence is for your safety. It is your friend. Guards will remind you of it should you forget - possibly quite forcefully. - Please try to budget for at least one full meal at the track each day. The food is unusually good for a circuit and is not particularly expensive. I especially recommend the cheese and garlic langos in the Fanzone and the ham-and-salad waffle sandwich from the waffle store at the back of the circuit, but there are no "bad" food stores here. - Go easy on the beer. I saw 3 people throwing up after drinking too much beer and not enough water. It's no fun, especially if you are the one doing the throwing up. - Bring hearing protection - if the cars don't bust your ears, the party music in the Fanzone in the late afternoon will. - The front of the Fanzone gets really crowded at times. If you don't need to literally meet the driver or step on the dancer's toes to enjoy your experience, staying at the other end of the Zone will still give you a clear view of the Stage and some space to do some proper dancing. - There are several good sites for General Admission - in practise and qualifying. I particularly recommend the one to the right of the Red Bull grandstand and the copse of trees near Turn 10. However, on race day, anyone not in the front row of these areas will see nothing, so consider picking higher ground, topping up your suntan and looking over the heads of the early birds. - Make a pact with your neighbour to protect your space. Fans tend to be friendly at the Hungaroring and like mutual trades of this kind. - Programmes make good sources of entertainment for bored children. They're not bad for adults either. Just don't expect support race entry lists in them. - Bring suncream, and lots of it. It's suprisingly difficult to get good suncream in Budapest. - Have huge amounts of fun.
