The most popular weekend of the year in Budapest is the Hungarian Grand Prix weekend. In the end of July the best Formula 1 racers in the world come to Budapest to compete at Hungaroring, so also in 2017.
The main race during the Hungarian Grand Prix in 2017 will be arranged on July 30th. There will be qualification races on July 28th and July 29th, but the big final will be held on July 30th. If you want to be there, then you can buy tickets for the event from Viagogo.
It is worth noticing, that you should book your Budapest hotel as soon as possible, because prices go up and rooms are sold out quickly after the announcement of the dates for the Hungarian Grand Prix. You will for sure find rooms in hotels close up to the event as well, but if you want to find the hotel room of your dream stay in Budapest, then you better hurry up!
In 2016 Lewis Hamilton won the race in Budapest (for the fifth time), but can he do so again in 2017? He is currently the most winning driver at Hungaroring (with five victories), one more than Michael Schumacher. Last year he not only won the race in Budapest, he also won the Grand Prix in total. Are you coming to Budapest to cheer for Lewis Hamilton or some other driver?
