Hungary is a track which DRS and fast degrading Pirelli rubber seemed to give new life too in 2011; the pit straight where the DRS is located is certainly going to be the best place to sit then and luckily this is where most of the grandstands are. Having said this overtakes may be done by turn 1 or may be setup down the start finish straight and completed in turn 2 or even turn three and these areas don’t have stands or general admission which seems a shame.

 

General admission is round the final section of the lap and is set back a little from the track so you may want binoculars to get the best view if you buy general admission Hungarian grand Prix tickets. You will get to see turn 13 at a distance though which is the Hungaroring circuit’s other overtaking chance or at least half-chance and Button and Hamilton exchanged places here in 2011. The view from General Admission is on a hilly area so you don’t have the problem as in many general admission areas of only just being able to see over barriers, on the other hand there are no TV screens for the General Admission section so you may want a Hungarian Grand Prix ticket in a stand if you want to follow the race.
