Hungary: Hungaroring

Circuit name: Hungaroring
Location: Budapest
Laps: 70
Circuit Length: 4.381 km
Lap Record: 1:19.071 – M Schumacher (2004)

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.
