2018 Hungarian Grand Prix

27 Jul 2018 - 29 Jul 2018

F1 Hungarian Grand Prix


The first Hungarian Grand Prix was held in 1936, and fifty years later, in 1986, the FIA included it in the Formula One calendar for the first time. Ever since then, the race has been an annual affair.


F1 Grand Prix of Hungary - Qualifying



The Hungarian Grand Prix has been competed on the Hungaroring each year. The circuit lies in Mogyoród, near Budapest and hardly sees any rain during the mid-summer stretch when the race is usually held. 2006 was the first time that the race was conducted in wet conditions.

The track was constructed due to a collective desire to organize a Grand Prix beyond the Iron Curtain. The resulting race saw an enormous amount of support from the fans and remains a calendar favourite for many viewers.

The narrow, twisty corners extend the length of the circuit to 4.381 kilometres. The surface of the track is typically dusty, due to sandy soil and infrequent usage throughout the rest of the year. However, over the course of a Grand Prix weekend, the rubber residue from cars helps the circuit gradually gather more speed.

Over the past 33 years, the winner’s trophy has been awarded to Lewis Hamilton five times, making him the most successful driver of the Grand Prix. Meanwhile, McLaren have had a strong-hold over the circuit as constructors, emerging victorious an impressive eleven times. Sebastian Vettel is the reigning winner at the circuit and he would be looking to defend well.

The race is run for 70 laps, covering a total distance of 306.663 km. It has been confirmed that Hungary would play host to a Grand Prix till 2026, after which the contract may be renewed.

For 2018, the Hungarian Grand Prix would be held on the 29th of July, at 1:10 am GMT and it would be the last race before the summer break.
