Hungarian Grand Prix

Hungarian Grand Prix- Winners, Qualifying, Circuits, Track

At the Hungarian Grand Prix, where the major part of the circuit is in the valley, spectators can enjoy a nice and fulfilling view from any part.

The F1 calendar has registered 35 Grands Prix in Hungary since 1936. The race rejoined the F1 World Championship in 1986 after the first race when it was struck off of the F1 calendar. In 1986, F1 staged the event behind the Iron Curtain that was constructed after the WW2.

Amidst the pandemic situation, while the entire F1 season’s calendar had to be revised for canceling certain races, Hungary hosted the race behind closed doors. The Hungarian Grand Prix apart from the rest of the world is also much appreciated by the Finnish.
