Hungarian Grand Prix

Everything you need to know about the Hungarian Grand Prix

Round 12  - July 21st - 23rd


The Hungarian government decided to built a Formula 1 track and work began in Budapest in 1985. Its first ever F1 race was held in 1986, with William's Nelson Piquet winning the inaugural race, after impressively completing a round-the-outside move on Ayrton Senna.

The track is built near Budapest and its Grand Prix is known to be very hot and dry, as it's usually scheduled for the last weekend of July, and the European summer tends to be really hot indeed. Pirelli confirms that track temperatures during free practice last year peaked at nearly 60 degrees.
