This race is held just twelve miles to the north-east of Budapest, Hungary and is the
fourth race in the F1 calender. The Hungaroring circuit has been in the racing calender
since 1986 . The circuit is 4.0 km long and a total of 77 laps have to be completed to
decide the winner.This circuit is very much like a combination of brazil and monaco as
this circuit is bumpy and dusty making it slippery and there is not much place to overtake
so the higher you are on the grid the better your chances of ending up in a strong
position, thus making this circuit very physically challenging. In 1998 the circuit was invaded
by fans coming on to the track at the end of the race which could have proved disasterous,
and the organisers were slapped with a $1 million dollar fine.inspite of there being no fast
corners and no place to overtake this circuit has been in the F1 calender ever since.
Micheal Schumacher won the race in 1998.
