Held outside Budapest at the height of the European summer, the Hungarian Grand Prix offers excellent spectator viewing and a laid-back atmosphere with easy access to one of the continent’s finest cities. It’s also by far the cheapest European race, with three-day grandstand tickets priced under €100 and attractive early-bird discounts.

What are the best tickets to buy at the 2021 Hungarian Grand Prix?

  • Budget (<€100): The General Admission areas at the Hungaroring offer excellent panoramic views. Alternatively, the cheapest Bronze 1 & 2 grandstands are only a little more expensive.
  • Mid-Range (€100-500): Some of the best grandstands at the Hungaroring are located on the final corner, including Silver 3 -4 and Red Bull. Gold 4 offers excellent views of the first corner, while Super Gold (the only covered grandstand) will keep you out of the sun/rain and offers views of the pits and start. Another good choice are the 3 Corner Hopping tickets that let you sit in a different grandstand on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
  • Hospitality (>€500): The Champions Club by F1 Experiences is recommended for all-inclusive hospitality above the pits and access to insider activities, while the more expensive Formula 1 Paddock Club offers the ultimate hospitality experience in Hungary.

General Admission at the Hungaroring

Much like the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, the Hungaroring is situated in a natural amphitheater. This means that the General Admission areas offer excellent viewing opportunities, especially between turns 9 and 14. Many of the grassy GA areas are located on higher ground behind the grandstands (particularly at turn 14) so whilst the view is often quite distant, you still get the opportunity to see large swathes of the track, as well as the big TV screens for the grandstands (bring binoculars so you can follow the action). At less than €100 for 3-day tickets (cheaper with early-bird discount), these are some of the best value General Admission tickets on the current F1 calendar.

Grandstands at the Hungarian Grand Prix

Given the natural contours of the circuit, most of the grandstands at the Hungaroring offer decent elevated views of the action – some over more than one corner. We think the best views can be found above the final corner, including Silver 3-4 and the Red Bull Grandstand. See below for a full analysis of every grandstand at the Hungarian Grand Prix, including video views of each.

Bronze 1 is an excellent value grandstand. Worth it for the numbered seat and the view of turn 5, a fourth gear right hander taken at around 220km/hr.
Bronze 2 is the better of the two Bronze grandstands. You’ll have a decent view of the cars taking turn 6. The disadvantage of the Bronze seats in general is that you have a long walk to the hub of the action and F1 village behind the main straight grandstands.
Silver 1 is the smallest of these grandstands, offering 1900 seats close to the exit of turn 14. As well as a ringside view of the circuit’s final turn, you’ll also get a distant view of turn 12, the pit entry, pit straight and back of the grid for the race start.
Silver 2 is a little further away from the final corner, closer to the pits. This grandstand is good value compared to the Gold grandstands further along the pit straight. On the downside, views are obscured by the advertising banner across the track.
Silver 3 wraps around the final turn 14 bend. Depending on where you sit, you will have a better view of turns 12-13 and pit entry or the exit of turn 14 and up the pit straight. As with all the Silver Grandstands (apart from Silver 5), this is a solid choice for a first time visitor to the Hungaroring.
Silver 4 is set further back from the circuit behind the Redbull grandstand. With greater elevation than the other Silver grandstands, Silver 4 provides an excellent panoramic view of turns 12-14 and the pit straight. Recommended. 
Redbull Grandstand is right in the middle of the cluster of grandstands around turn 14. Located between Silver 1 and 3, you’ll get a distant front-on view of the straight between turns 11 and 12, as well as the final two corners and along the pit straight. A good choice, not only for Redbull fans.
Silver 5, located on the short straight between turns 11 and 12, is the cheapest grandstand in this category. From the higher rows,  you will also have a distant view from turns 9-10 through to 13-14. If you can afford it, we recommend paying a little extra for any of the other Silver grandstands (or Red Bull) instead.

Super Gold (video above) is the only covered stand at the Hungaroring; good for keeping out of the hot summer sun!  Super Gold is located across from the start-finish line, top teams pit garages and podium. Great seats for the race build-up and start, but you won’t see much in the way of on-track action. Please Note: There are two categories of Super Gold, Gold 1 and Gold 2 tickets: seats in rows 1-12 are cheaper, because views are obscured by the catch fencing and you cannot see over the high pit wall at the Hungaroring. Buy the more expensive seats if you can!

Gold 1 is located on the pit straight, opposite the pits of the top teams and next to the start/finish line. This grandstand is good for pits action and the race start, but go for the similarly priced Silver 1-4 if you want to see more on-track action.
Gold 2 is good for pit action from the top teams, the race lead-up and start. You’ll also get a view of the cars exiting turn 14.
Gold 3 is located on the pit straight, closer to turn 1. It’s good for the race start and pit exit, but not much else. We don’t recommend Gold 3. Pay a bit more for Gold 4 on turn 1, or save some cash and buy a seat in one of the Silver grandstands on the last turn. 
Gold 4 (pictured below) is definitely the pick of the Gold Grandstands. It’s located before turn 1, the best overtaking spot on the circuit. You’ll also get a great view of the race start and be close to the F1 Village behind the main grandstands on the pit straight. Highly recommended.

  1. Hi, we sat in Gold 4 in 2015 with Gootickets. We were on in Section K Row 9. This year we’d like to be left and higher.

    Can I ask fro your video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ceH9hZxWVJY what your exact seat section was and who provided it as many providers get bulked in the one area.

    We’re looking for section C or D and quite high to see the action once around the turn just like the video.

    Appreciate it


    1. Hi Jason, thanks for getting in touch. Honestly, I am not sure of the section. Back in 2014 when this video was taken, they still had Free Friday at the Hungaroring, which meant you could sit in any grandstand you wanted on that day (didn’t have it last year, trying to find out right now about 2016). For tickets, we bought via the official ticket agency for the event – GPTicketShop – they should have the best selection of tickets for Gold 4. Good luck and enjoy the race, maybe we will see you there!

      1. Philip van Rijk

        Speaking of the rows Andrew! This year I will be on the first row of gold 1. Does this mean I am at the row closest or furthest from the track?

        Hope to hear from you!

        Greetings philip

  2. Jason, when you say left and higher , what section would that be? As planning my first Grand Prix this year in Hungary as part of my Birthday treat..

  3. We had super gold tickets for the 2015 gp, and if you’re into the whole pit strategy part of the race, these seats are great.

    Does anybody know if you have access to the GA areas with a gold grandstand ticket in Hungary?

    1. Hi Thomas. Yes, you have access to all the GA areas if you have a grandstand ticket (all grandstand tickets offer GA access). I am not a huge fan of the pit straight tickets, but yes, they are good for the pit strategy (plus start/finish). I prefer the final corner grandstands personally.

  4. is there a free friday this yeaar?
    I have bronze 2 ticket and was hoping to watch FP1or2 form start finish seats :D

    1. Sorry Ivan, but I don’t think there will be Free Friday this year. This was discontinued in 2015 and I haven’t seen any information that it will be returning. But you never know your luck; it can be easier to get into the grandstands on Friday if you ask nicely or get lucky when the security are not looking:)

  5. We went to Budapest last year for the GP, and had a Gold 3 corner ticket – really good value, got to see a lot of the track, and being on the start/finish on race day was excellent. Wish other tracks did it.

    1. Thanks Kirsty, good feedback! That’s got us inspired to do some research into an article on circuits that offer 3-corner tickets. Cheers!

    1. Hi Dan, I’m not sure such a plan exists online. You could ask GPTicketshop directly, as they are the official tickets partner.

  6. Me and my son have got Row 20, Section 4 in Gold 4, think this is near the top which should be fab. How long is the walk from the shuttle bus? 1/2 hour?

    1. You’ll have a great view from those seats! I’ve never taken the shuttle bus myself, but it will probably be at least a 30 minute walk. If your legs are tired, I think you will find a taxi for that short distance as well.

  7. Hello! Can’t wait for the weekend! Question: I only can see that it’s free parking with a grandstand ticket. Googled it, checked all the FAQ’s but just can’t find it. What about the general admission ticket, can i park for free or can i get a ticket somewhere? Thanks in advance!

    1. Hi Chris, FREE parking for all ticketholders. I cannot remember any checks whatsoever, so probably you could park without a ticket as well. just turn up and park!

  8. Doy know if we can enter wih flags? I mean i am a little bit concern for the pipe holder of the flag. Is there any problems with the security.
    And also do you know which gates they open after the end of the race to step foot on the track?

    1. Hi Ivan, you should be fine with the flag, but I cannot guarantee. I think they open gates at the final corner, main straight and near turn 1 to let you on to the track after the race. Enjoy!

  9. Hi, there seems to be a huge difference in price between the Super Gold (rows 1-12) tickets and the cost of just Super Gold tickets. Is it just because you do not have a good view of the pits if you sit from row 1-12?

    1. Hi Ellie, that’s pretty much correct. The pitwall is quite high in Budapest, so below row 12 you can’t really see into the pits. You will also have the catch fencing getting in the way.

      1. thanks for the reply. In your honest opinion do you think its worth the extra £150 (for 2 tickets) to sit in gold 4, or as you can see the screens in Super Gold its not too much difference viewing wise

  10. Hello! I also have a question regarding seats. If you buy a ticket for the Bronze seats, do you also have acces to “General Acces”? This is just in case we want to take a walk and see other corners. Thank you in advance!

    1. Hi Gina, yes you do! It’s a good idea to buy the Bronze seats so you have somewhere to sit for the race. The rest of the time you can wander around the General Admission areas. Enjoy!

  11. Hi Andrew,
    I was about to buy the Bronze 1 ticket when I found your site.
    You seem to recommend the Bronze 2 over B1 as a better option. My logic would say that we would have better view of the cars taking corner 6 instead of seeing the cars going in a straight line.

    What would be your main reason for the Bronze 2 seats?
    Thank you in advance!

    1. Hi, I don’t really have a strong preference for either Bronze grandstand. They are both outstanding value, the cheapest grandstands at a European Grand Prix.

      1. I had a feeling that’s the case. I will flip a coin then :) Thanks for the quick response! Christmas present sorted!

  12. Buying tickets from gpticketshop.hu for 2018. It says that tickets can not be posted outside Hungary, is this normal? Is this the official seller?

      1. I was redirected there from http://www.hungaroring.hu, do you think it’s a doggy website then? This seems like a big think to alert people about if it is a scam. Visited their Facebook account and it’s hungarian or poor English. Not getting a good vibe from them.

  13. I’ve booked tickets for silver 5. Will they allocate our seats or is it sit anywhere within the silver 5 grandstand. Will they sit us together?

    1. Hello, you didn’t state where you bought the tickets from, so I cannot answer your question. Please contact the ticket agency where you bought the tickets.

  14. Hi, I bought tickets for the Red Bull stand this year. I just received them by post and we’re seated at section A, row 27. Do you by any chance know where section A is located on the Red Bull tribune?

    1. Sorry Nikki, I’m not exactly sure if section A is closer to the start/finish line or the other way around. Row 27 should be quite high in the stand. Either way, I think you’ve chosen a good place to watch the action at the Hungaroring!

  15. Hi there. Firstly, thank you very much for the website, which has so far been an informative and useful one-stop shop for me.

    In the last few days I’ve bought a (3-day) ticket in Silver 2 from Gootickets. However, I also noticed (before buying) that GPticketshop (the one you’re directed to from the official Hungaroring website) is instead showing all Silver grandstand options (except Silver 6 I think) as sold out. Therefore, is there a risk of my transaction “bouncing” due to lack of availability? And, if so, when am I likely to be informed of this? Any steer/advice you have is welcome.

    1. If you’ve paid for the tickets, you have nothing to worry about. Gootickets is the same company from Monaco (Platinium) that supplies official F1 Tickets. They get allocations for each race, so I guess they still had tickets available when they sold to you. Enjoy the Hungarian GP!

  16. Hi,

    we bought 2 tickets for Gold 1 Rows 1-12 for this year’s GP. Does it mean that I wasted more than 500€ for nothing, as I won’t be able to see anything from there?

    1. Depends. If you have row 1, you will be near the noise the most, but with less overview and yes, no view into the pits. Higher row-numbers means higher up the grandstands and also more overview, less noise and more people who can block you view. :-)

  17. Hi, can you tell me what level of ticket gets you access to the Formula 1 village at the Hungarian Grand Prix? Regards Chris

    1. Chris, not sure what you mean about “Formula 1 village.” If you mean the F1 Fanzone behind the Main Grandstand, then anyone can go there. If you mean the F1 Paddock behind the pits, then access there is very restricted. F1 Experiences does offer some packages with access to the F1 Paddock. Please email me if you want more info about this.

  18. Hi,
    I have just received our tickets for Hungarian GP. The seats are in Red bull corner, section J, row 1. Are they OK?

    1. Not sure about section, but row 1 is probably at the front. Not the best, as you won’t have so much elevation to see more of the track. Red Bull is an excellent grandstand!

  19. Hi, We have bought tickets for Bronze Grandstand. Just wondering if the seats are numbered as it looks like benches in the pictures?


  20. Hi there,

    We have a 2 weekend silver ticket?
    Is it allowed to take my wife on saturday training and my daughter on the sunday race?

    Thank you

    1. Hi Alex, the dates for the Hungarian GP are highly unlikely to change, but if you want to be on the safe side, you should wait until October 12. This is when the FIA World Motorsports Council will meet to approve the 2019 F1 calendar.

      1. Thank you, its more surrounding the airline tickets.
        as its highly unlikely, what would the grounds be for the FIA council to change the dates> presuming if it classed with another event in the FIA calendar

  21. Hi, was thinking of getting my partner tickets for 2019 Hungary race. Can’t secide between general admission or bronze? What are the different between the two? Do you still get to see enough with general admission, are you able to access the track after the race? Can you access the fan zone with general admission.


    1. Hi Heather, just buy the Bronze tickets. The current prices are 76 EUR for 3-day Bronze and 72 EUR for 3-day General Admission. But you get a grandstand seat with Bronze, and you can still go wherever you want in the General Admission areas. So you get the best of both worlds, even if you only use your grandstand seat for the race.

  22. Hi. I was on the Hungarian GP last year at bronze sector. Now all the tickers at this sector are sold out for the next year ;/ I wonder if that was all the tickets avaliable in this sector, or after 31st of december (when the discount will be ended) there will be additional tickets avaliable in higher prices? Now I don’t know what to do (buy general admision entrance or quite expensive tickets for Silver 5 sector which aren’t the most interesting, I think)
    I didn’t expect that Kubica’s comeback will bring this kind of problem at the beginning of december :) Thank you in advance.

    1. Hi Mario, I’m afraid the tickets are already sold out (to Kubica fans mainly!) and there will not be anymore. I like the General Admission area at the Hungaroring, but I guess it will be busy next year. Otherwise, just get a grandstand seat on the last corner. Silver 3 costs only 156 EUR till end of December and it’s a great view from there.

  23. Hello Andrew! What do you think, will there be grandstand tickets to buy at race day or quali-day, at the gate or outside the track?

    1. Hi, I wouldn’t take the risk, especially if Robert Kubica starts the 2019 season strongly. The Poles could cause a sell out in Hungary! Better to buy in advance.

  24. Hi Andrew, i hope it will be my first time at F1 this year. Please tell me, will be general admission tickets available even on june/july?

    1. Hi Konrad, I think you should buy the tickets now. If Kubica starts the new season well, I think the race will sell out before June. I’d buy the Bronze 1 or 2 grandstand – the price is only a few EUR more than General Admission, and you will have your own seat to watch the race. You can still watch from the General Admission areas. Pozdrawiam!

  25. Hi Andrew,

    I was looking at taking my son to the Grand Prix who is in a wheelchair. I know they only sell wheelchair seating in Gold 3. Do you know what the seating is like as im struggling to find any information on the seats. Cheers

    1. Sorry Stuart, I don’t know exactly how the wheelchair section in Gold 3 looks like. I suggest contacting the circuit – I’m sure they will reply (office@hungaroring.hu). The one thing I would say is that it gets very hot in the sun at the circuit, so take precautions. Gold 3 is not covered – Supergold is the only covered grandstand at the Hungaroring.

  26. Hello Andrew!

    As my boyfriend is a big fan of F1 and especially Robert Kubica, I would like to buy the tickets for Hungarian GP for his birthday. This will be our first GP and I am wondering which tickets to buy. I have to choose between 3 corner Red Bull (Gold1,SuperGold,RedBull) or just a RedBull grand stand for a weekend. Could you advise best option? Is the 3 corner worth to buy just to see friday and saturday in Gold perspective? It is almost two times more expensive than just a Red Bull granstand for a weekend and I am not sure if it is really worth it.

    Thanks in advance for your advice and regards from Poland ;)

    1. Czesc Anna! Great idea, I’m sure your boyfriend will be very happy with this birthday present :) I would buy the Red Bull Grandstand – you have the option of paying 20 EUR extra on Friday to sit in another grandstand, and you can also walk around the General Admission areas at any time. The views from the Red Bull grandstand are really good!

  27. Hi Andrew.

    Great website you have here! I am looking to come to the GP for the first time ever and was wondering about where best to sit.

    it seems as if only silver 6 is avaiailable now at a price around £170. I can’t find much information about these as i’m presuming its a new stand. Could you give me your thoughts and if it is worth the money or stick with the general admission or bronze stands?

    Many Thanks

    1. Hi Amish, yes Silver 6 is a new grandstand. Not the best location, but all the other Silver ones (good ones on final corner) are sold out. Also Bronze tickets sold out. General Admission is good, but I’d prefer to have a seat for race day and not battle all the other fans for a view of the action!

  28. Hi Andrew,

    I’ll be visiting the Hungarian Grand Prix this year (Silver 4) and had two quick questions: I have a ticket for the full weekend, but the pitlane walk will be on Thursday, can I access the circuit on Thursday with my fri-sun ticket?
    Also, last year I went to the Spanish Grand Prix, where I was able to access the Gold grandstand with a Silver ticket on both Friday and Saturday. Do you know if this is the case with the Hungarian Grand Prix as well?

    Many Thanks,

    1. Hello. Yes you can go to the pitlane walk on Thursday if you have a weekend ticket. Hungary no longer has “Free Friday” where you can sit in different grandstands. But you can purchase access to a different grandstand on Friday for around 20 EUR – not sure of exact details, but you should be able to pay at the circuit on the day for this.

  29. Hi, I want to buy 2 tickets but I can’t do it from official F1 site, because you have to be 21 years old. But when I want to buy them from gpticketshop.hu I only have to be 18. So my question is: do I have to be 21 to enter the track on my own, or just 18? Or if I’m 19 do I need to be with someone who is at least 21?


  30. Since choices are limited now what are the Silver Grid Grandstand seats like?

    1. If you mean Silver 1 and 2 on the main straight, these are still pretty good seats. Not as good as the ones on the final corner, but still decent!

  31. The Sunday ticket gives access to GP2 and GP3? How the “pick up” ticket collection method works?

    1. Yes, you can watch all the on-track action (now called Formula 2 and Formula 3, plus Porsche supercup). There’s normally a ticket collection booth next to the gate at the circuit. You’ll need to bring passport or ID to collect your tickets

  32. Hello. Can i have a backpack with water in plastic bottle + digital camera with set of lenses? Michal

  33. Mate your page is unreal! im just wondering, is there an option of being able to pick up tickets at the sales booth at the race track? or are all companies just shipping tickets? id like to save some money and pick them up on the race weekend. any ideas?

    1. Hi Vlad, yes you should be able to pick up your tickets from the track – especially now with the race coming up soon! It’s a better idea in my opinion, saves issues with the post. You can pick up from the track with my company Gootickets – you need to state this in the checkout process.

  34. Hi, Cant wait for the race next week!

    There are 12 of us with general admission tickets. I’ve heard that you need to get there early to get a good spot/view and that the best place is between silver 5 and silver 6 to be able to get a good view, is this right?

    What time would we need to get there to make sure we get a good spot?

    Thank you!!

    1. Hi Emma, last time I went in GA was 2014. You can get pretty good views up on the hill behind the last corner. Sure you will get a better spot if you get there earlier, but don’t go crazy. My opinion you will still find a good spot somewhere if you get there a bit later.

  35. Hi Andrew!

    First of all, thanks so much for taking your time to answer all these questions. There’s so much useful info over here that I found reading through the comments!

    Now to my question:
    How long are the queues after the race? I know there’s a rather large one for the taxis. What about the trains (or the free buses)? How much time approximately would it take to get back to Budapest on Sunday after the race?


    1. Hi Henrikas, the queues can be really long – but that is at the peak time. Just relax at the track after the race, grab a drink and let the crowds die down. I think the train is the best way to get back after the race. I estimate the whole trip should take around 2 hours.

  36. Please tell me, are the ticket personal or anyone can use the ticket. I ask because my friend got ill….

  37. can i get tickets on friday for general admission, are they limited seats, because someone tell me there are solt out, please help me , ok

    1. Hi Jane, I don’t believe General Admission tickets are sold out. You should be able to buy a weekend GA ticket for 90 EUR at the track.

  38. Stathis Ballas

    Hi Andrew!
    nice work with your site!
    we will be travelling to Budapest tomorrow with 2 little kids for the GP with GA admission
    we will be arriving by car
    what is your opinion about GA views with kids as well as the easiest way to come and go by car
    thank you for your time

  39. Is it possible to buy 1 day grandstand tickets for the Friday or Saturday, an if so what is the price range. These do no t seem to be advertised on the F1, gootickets or other websites but I did see mention (perhaps a few years ago) that they could be bought at the circuit on the day

    1. I don’t believe so Mick. Not that I’m aware of. What you can do is buy an upgrade to a grandstand, definitely on Friday. For example, if you have General Admission, you can buy an upgrade to selected grandstands on Friday for around 20 EUR.

  40. What you think about the 3 corner Ticket with Sunday a place in Gold 4?
    It is Friday Silver 5 – Saturday Silver 1 and Sunday Gold 4. I like the idea to seat at different points during the weekend.
    Gold 4 for the whole weekend has the same price with 297€.

    Any experience? I just think having a seat at Silver 5 and Silver 1 on Friday and Saturday also offers great value.

    1. Yes, I like the 3-corner tickets in Hungary. It’s good to have some variety. The only issue is that none of these grandstands are covered and it gets really hot in Budapest! Don’t forget your hat (Only the Super Gold Grandstand opposite the pits is covered, by the way)

  41. Hi,
    Which do you feel is a better grandstand. Silver 3, silver 4 or the Red Bull one? And which has a better view of the TV screens?


    1. Hi Julian, not much between Silver 3 or Red Bull. I’m not sure about which has the best view of TV, but would be Red Bull or Silver 3. (Silver 4 is higher up on the hill)

  42. Hello,

    I bought two tickets for Gold 2 Rows 1-12 separately. I bought one at the end of 2019 and the other 10 days ago. Is there a chance that we can sit together? Are those seats numbered?


    1. Yes, the seats are numbered. I suggest contacting the ticket company who you purchased from and explaining the situation – hopefully they can give you the seats together. If that doesn’t work, you can always ask the people in the seats to move when you are at the race. Good luck!

  43. Hi,
    are there any information if there will be spectators at next season’s races because of coronavirus? It is still not possible to buy tickets on the official f1.com website or have any information (except for e-mail notification about tickets). How is it possible that tickets are already sold on gp1tickets, and there is no any information about selling tickets on the official website? I plan to buy tickets for the Budapest GP. Is parking there free?

    1. Hi Dora, thanks for your questions. Yes, there is a plan for spectators to return to the track next year. The CEO of Formula 1 has said this. However, I think there are more likely to be some restrictions during the first half of 2021. The “F1 tickets” store is just a reseller, like other similar companies. Yes, they are affiliated with F1, but the “official” place to get tickets is direct from each circuit or the company that the circuit appoints. Currently, tickets are on sale for 8 races out of 23 next year – mainly in the second half of the year. You will see on our website that tickets are already on sale for the Hungarian GP. We recommend Grand Prix Tickets, who will provide you with a refund in case the event is cancelled or run without spectators. Prices are also 15% cheaper when you buy before the end of the year. When it comes to booking accommodation or flights etc, I also recommend you book with free cancellation or free change so that you don’t lose money if the race is cancelled or runs without spectators. I hope that helps! As for parking at the Hungaroring, yes it is free. More information in Trackside

      1. Is there anything to prove they will provide a refund?

        On their terms and conditions it states:

        “GPT is only a ticket agent and not liable for the reimbursement of admission charges. Should an event be cancelled, GPT will make every effort to arrange a refund by the promoter.”

        Might be worth reflecting that in the comment unless I’m missing something :)

        1. Hi Harley, I guess GPT has to legally say this in their terms and conditions. The reality is that we are all at the mercy of the promoter when it comes to tickets. The promoter is responsible for providing refunds (either to individual buyers or to ticket agents). The issue we saw with many ticket agents in 2020, and the reason why we changed to GPT, is that a lot of agents were receiving a 100% refund from the promoter but then retaining 10-20% for themselves and not giving it all back to the ticket buyers. We know that GPT will not do this. I should say there is no reason not to believe that the promoter in Hungary won’t provide 100% refunds next year – but I can say that I know the French GP promoter will not. Instead they will only transfer tickets to the following year of the event, or another event at Paul Ricard. When I update our “French GP tickets” page, I’ll be sure to state clearly that policy. Hope this helps.

    Hi, very useful site, thank you.

    I have tickets for this year’s race, does anyone know a decision date as to whether spectators will be allowed?


    1. The organizers are selling tickets and currently planning for a full – or close to full capacity. Of course something can change in the meantime, but I understand that is the current plan.

  45. Hello,
    I have been searching For information regarding The requirements and coldn’t find it. Do you know if the spectators have to be vaccinated? If not, I assume we have to provide a negative PCR test?

    1. Hi Eve, I think entry requirements haven’t been published for the Hungarian GP. But it seems that the general rule of thumb is that you will need either to show you are vaccinated, recently recovered or provide negative PCR test (less than 72 hours old) to gain entry to the circuits this year.
