The Hungaroring race track was built almost three decades ago as a rarity, the first one beyond the Iron Curtain, and now it is still special as the second behind Monza to have continuously featured in the race calendar.
Unfortunately, the 'Thursday Pit Lane Walk' won't be held this year. Due to the pandemic situation organiers would like to avoid the crowded mass that can be impossible during the Pit Lane Walk.
Entering the track after the race will neither be possible, unlike in the previous years, spectators can join the podium celebration only from the stands.
In the race preview video below, we'll look at the track characteristics of the Hungaroring, the Grand Prix history, all the news heading into this racing weekend, plus 'performance predictions' and betting favorites
