The Hungaroring held its first grand prix in 1986 and has since been ever-present on the Formula One calendar.
The circuit is a modern complex and facilities are good. But overtaking is difficult and this often turns the races into a procession, earning the race a reputation of being boring.
Not one of the favourites on the calendar for most of the drivers, a maximum speed of 291kph is reached along the track’s main straight.
Directions: The Hungaroring is close to Budapest and its International Ferihegy Airport and the track is easy to reach. It is surrounded by beautiful countryside and has a natural amphitheatre setting. You can reach the circuit from Budapest by driving north-east on the E71/M3 towards Miskok.
