Bettingpro's guide to the Hungarian Grand Prix and it's host venue, the Hungaroring.
The Hungaroring has played host to the Hungarian Grand Prix since it returned to the Formula 1 calendar in 1986. F1 chief Bernie Ecclestone had been aiming to introduce a Russian Grand Prix to the schedule but opted for Hungary instead, and plans for a street circuit were then shelved in 1985 in favour of a new track – Hungaroring – that was built in less than a year and ready for the 1986 season. The circuit is very similar in lay-out to the Monte Carlo street track used for the Monaco Grand Prix, with tight and twisting corners making it difficult to overtake. Conditions are usually hot and dry so drivers also have to battle with what is a notoriously bumpy surface, but that has not prevented it from being a venue that has hosted some memorable races over the years. Lewis Hamilton holds the record for most Hungarian Grand Prix victories after his 2019 success saw him become a seven-time winner. Only one other active driver, Sebastian Vettel, has won this race more than once, while only three drivers – Hamilton, Mika Hakkinen and Jacques Villeneuve – have managed back-to-back Hungarian Grand Prix victories in the past 20 years.
