It is never easy with any big investor or businessman to convince them for anything!But the Hungaroring was and will remain the classic circuit which is held F1 races yearly since 1986 without pause!The first F1 circuit on the race calendar beyond the iron curtain,inside a socialist block country! We Hungarians are very proud of this fact as Bernie Eccleston is! So new investments and upgrade will be done in the next years on the track and surounding infrastructure!
I do hope that the 2021 date will be extended! :cheers1:
Congrats on keeping your race! Dealing with Bernie cannot be an easy thing.

I wouldn't call Hungaroring really classic.
There will be no India GP in 2014, as they are moving towards the beginning of the calendar in 2015 (lumped with those other Asian races). So this somehow solves the problem of too many races for 2014.

Yet, something gotta go out of the calendar in 2015 if they are to keep the 19-race limit.
Currently there is an informal 20 race limit, but Bernie is already talking about 22 races a year in the coming years (extra races in Rome, France, Thailand, Mexico are all being talked about). I guess the teams will agree if the money's right.

Interlagos improvement planned for 2014

new and bigger pitlane









Terrific pix. But as long as they are moving the pit lane and start/finish, why don't they lengthen that straight to the old Curva 3, then follow the old circuit to back behind the current pit entrance. I think in general the trend towards short pit straights in not good for racing.
it has no run-off space, unless they embank the lake that exists there
Time for my favourite circuit of all:






Indeed, **** the tilkedromes. This is a REAL track.

F1 circuit in Perú... soon.
Spa has been ruined by the massive amount of run-off areas.

And by the lack of blood running down the track. Yeah yeah yeah. We've been hearing from the anti-safety folk for decades now. Racing is no fun unless there are dead bodies everywhere. Only real men raced inches away from the trees and sheer cliffs, etc. Thankfully, no one listens to you anymore. :eek:hno:

That would be interesting. Any details on the track?

Classic or not,this is not important! In 2016 we will celebrate the 30.th anniversary of the first F1 race track beyond the iron curtain!
There was plans to take the race to Soviet Union or to China! Even Yugoslavia was an option. But Hungarian lobby and passion was stronger and Bernie Eccleston was convinced! And he still convinced by the professional Hungarian attitude and support! And Hungaroring operates since 1986 non stop! :)

30 (or about) is indeed a respectable amount. On the way to be a clasic.
Don´t like the track though, but that´s not important...
All in all they do always have got a good amount of spectators there.
Big talks with Mexican companies (CIE , TELCEL, TELMEX) mexican government and F1.. Mexican race coming up soon? I think so.!
So Ricciardo will run with Red Bull next year. Now let's see where Raïkkonen is going to.
Just been to the Italian GP last weekend, and although the atmosphere was brilliant with the Tifosi, but the utter dereliction of Monza as a track for fans is unbelievable. Loads of old squat style toilets and areas that just need a good old lick of paint. Track side (which i was on at the end) is top class, the paddock area is as good a cocoon as it can get for the drivers and teams of F1 and support races too.

However, they need to spend about €10m on fan facilities, such modern toilets and such as boy its like Glastonbury for F1, or what Glastonbury was like a decade ago.

Monza needs to spend at least €50m on a new pit building, fan facilities and additional grandstanding in specific areas and cutting down of some trees in some areas in order to better the view for some grandstands.

Bloody good experience, i will do Monza again one day, possibly changing grandstand, but its the finer things that need so e money spent on.
