PHUKET, 28 July, 2010 - HotelTravel.com's new Formula 1 event guide moves to beautiful Budapest for this week's Hungarian Grand Prix, traditionally one of the most exciting events on the F 1 race calendar.

According to HotelTravel.com Chief Marketing Officer, Tom Racette, after last week's scandal-plagued German Grand Prix F 1 resident 'bad boy', Fernando Alonso, will be the centre of attention at the Hungaroring circuit.

"Alonso is no stranger to scandal in Formula One. Throughout the last few years he has played a part in most of the controversial events that have rocked the sport. In the 2007 Hungarian Grand Prix qualifying rounds, Alonso controversially and deliberately delayed his pit stop exit, which prevented then team mate Lewis Hamilton from completing his last qualification lap," he added.

HotelTravel.com’s comprehensive F1 event guide for the next race also includes an up-to-the-minute Hungarian Grand Prix countdown timer, Hungarian Grand Prix contacts, track tactics, local weather forecasts and ticket information in addition to live RSS and Twitter feeds.

In the fast paced world of Formula 1, the HotelTravel.com event guide is quickly becoming an important resource in the world of F 1; especially for this week as fans look for value for money deals on Budapest hotels.

The same will be true for the last two races on the current European leg at the Belgium Grand Prix and the Italian Grand Prix.

After which Formula 1 action returns to Asia in late September for the Singapore Grand Prix, followed by the Japanese Grand Prix and the first ever Korean Grand Prix.

Mr Racette said: "While the HotelTravel.com Formula 1 event guide focuses on racing, we believe our core customer base is also tapping into our F 1 hotel promotions in popular destinations like Budapest. It's a unique destination for a weekend getaway from anywhere in Europe.  A Grand Prix weekend is just icing on the cake."
