The Hungaroring is a 4.381 kilometer (2.722 mi) permanent racing circuit located in Mogyoród, Pest County, Hungary, about 20 kilometers (12 mi) northeast of Budapest.

  • Track record: 1:13.447 (Lewis Hamilton, 2020)
  • No. of turns: 14
  • Nicknamed: “The Hungaroring” or “The Magny-Cours of the East” due to its tight and twisty nature, similar to the Magny-Cours Circuit in France.

The Hungaroring was the first circuit behind the Iron Curtain to host a Formula One Grand Prix in 1986. It’s known for its tight and twisty layout, with only one long straight. This makes overtaking difficult, so races at the Hungaroring often rely on strategy and tire management.

The circuit has seen some great racing over the years, including:

  • Jenson Button’s victory in the wet in 2006
  • Daniel Ricciardo’s come-from-behind win in 2014
  • Lewis Hamilton’s late overtake on Max Verstappen in 2019
  • Fernando Alonso’s defensive masterclass to deny Hamilton a win in 2021
