PREVIEW- Hard Hungary

Features Testing & Race Reports

Round 10 of the season takes place at the Hungaroring near the capital Budapest. The race was the first race behind the iron curtain in 1968 and was built outside the city and only took eight months to build. The circuit is very dusty because it hardly used.

Overtaking at the circuit is very difficult because they lack grid. This means that the best place to start the race is the race win. As it is a low speed circuit I would expect Ferrari to be close but can they make the move.
