Race
Welcome to the Hungaroring, situated in the rolling hills of Mogyoród, Pest County, just outside Budapest, Hungary, and home of the Hungarian Grand Prix.
This circuit is often likened to a full-sized karting track with a street circuit, which makes it an exhilarating challenge for drivers.
The track's demanding nature, combined with typically hot summer conditions, is a test of endurance and understanding, especially as the infrequently used circuit gets grippier as the weekend goes by.
Circuit Overview:
The Hungaroring stretches over 4.381 km (2.722 miles) with 14 slow to medium-speed corners that offer very few overtaking opportunities, emphasising the importance of Qualifying.
Sector 1 has the best chances to pass, with the braking zone into Turn 1 and the long left-hand Turn 3 the places to try a move.
Single-file turns and a slow-speed chicane occupies Sector 2, with Sector 3's three corners best suiting those with a high-downforce setup before unleashing down the pit straight.
