The Hungarian, the German or the British GP

Any help and tips would be appreciated. I know I'm early, but you know, it's a big thing for me, cause I've never been to any kind of motor sport event outside Finland, ever. I will be going in a group of three people, all first-timers to an F1 event.

I went to Budapest this season. The flights were quite cheap with Ryanair from Birmingham. I bought gold tickets for the race, but I think general admission 3 day ticket was about £120 . They had the driver signing session on the thursday. The circuit is easily reachable by the train fron the city centre. 20 minutes on the train, plus a 25 minute walk from the station. Budapest is an amazing city, and it's cheap !
I went to Montreal in 2008. The flights have gone up a lot since I went, but it was an amzing experience, it's more of a festival than a race.
Barcelona is a really cheap race to go to. £60 return flights. 4 euro return train ticket to the circuit from barcelona city centre. It actually worked out cheaper than going to Silverstone

Give yourself a few days either side to enjoy Budapest and remember to schedule a visit to Szechenyi Furdo and also the Great Market Hall to enjoy a langos bread which is shockingly unhealthy and yet...

You're at the corner which is furthest away from the train station. It's still walkable, but not fun in the heat. Budget for and arrange cabs from your hotel and aim to fill the car each way. You can do the free bus from the centre of Budapest but that drops you off at a town about twice as far from turn 5 as that corner is from turn 1. Also, the grandstand isn't covered, and it gets hot. Or wet. Don't underestimate quite how hot it will be.

The way i see it is that Hungary is the cheaper, more fun option but some the circuit isnt the best although we do get some good races
Belgium just seems the ultimate for the race, seeing the cars stretch their legs, but more expensive
Is it difficult to access Spa ? We would be staying in hotels for both options

We also have tickets for the first corner
