DRIVER VIEW from Hungaroring

Lewis Hamilton


"The Hungaroring is one of the most demanding circuits for drivers because you’re busy throughout the entire lap. It’s a bit like a kart circuit - there are lots of twists and turns and the only place to relax is along the start/finish straight, which is quite short. It’s also quite low-grip which makes overtaking particularly tricky. It’s a circuit that really rewards consistent, precise driving - push too hard and you tend to lose rather than gain time."

 

CHARACTERISTICS from Hungaroring

Budapest:

The Hungaroring was the first race behind the old Iron Curtain and is still the only one in Eastern Europe. A slow, undulating and twisty track with little overtaking, the Hungaroring has no high-speed corners, leading teams to run the highest possible downforce engines. Mechanical grip will be an important factor on this low-speed circuit and teams will try to run a car with softer settings all around. The circuit has been well attended in the past by Finnish fans, but latterly by Poles cheering on Robert Kubica and Russian supporters of Vitaly Petrov.
