Hungarian Grand Prix 4th August
The Hungaroring is a circuit where the cars are set up to carry maximum downforce. The track features a sequence of flowing low to medium-speed corners with short straights. Braking stability, as well as good traction, is crucial. The limited track width does not offer many ideal lines which makes overtaking difficult and emphasises the importance of a good grid position.
At the time of its debut, the Hungaroring made history by hosting its first Formula One Grand Prix before the fall of the Iron Curtain. Since 1986, the circuit has hosted a Grand Prix each year, establishing itself as one of the go-to races of each season.
