FDCs: Formula 1 at the Hungaroring

My sister and her family bought these 3 covers for me at the Hungaroring in Budapest, Hungary, on the occasion of the 2013 Hungarian Grand Prix, which saw a victory for a British driver :)

20 Year Anniversary

The following 2 covers commemorate the 78th Stamp Day in Hungary (to promote philately and Hungarian culture) with a souvenir sheet of the Hungaroring circuit and stamps featuring F1 cars and drivers. The stamps were issued in 2005, marking 20 years of Formula 1 racing at the circuit, which was built specifically to bring F1 to Hungary. The stamp featured on the souvenir sheet is also a charity stamp.
