25th Formula 1 Hungarian Grand Prix commemorated on stamp

Hungary Post celebrates the 25th Formula 1 Hungarian Grand Prix by issuing a special stamp.

Racecars appear as the main motif of the graphic composition. It also includes the logo welcoming the quarter century anniversary, the silhouette of the Hungaroring track and the official logo of Formula 1. An interesting feature of the issue is that Hungarian and English texts certifying copyright compliance may be read on the edges of the printed sheets. The first day cover is decorated with a graphic composition related to the anniversary. The special cancellation stamp includes a stylised drawing of the anniversary logo.

The commemorative sheet shows a graphic composition formed of motifs connected to the 25th Formula 1 Grand Prix, the main elements of which are: a portrait of Bernie Ecclestone; a drawing of a race car with the 25th anniversary number, the year and national colour ribbon. The official logo of Formula 1 is located in the upper right part of the commemorative sheet. Two 25th Formula 1 Hungarian Grand prix special stamps have been fixed to the commemorative sheet, which have been cancelled with the special cancellation stamp related to the issue.
