Track walk around Hungaroring on


Conceived in the mid-1980s, placed just outside of Budapest, and built in a rapid eight months, the Hungaroring became the host of the first-ever Formula 1 event in eastern Europe in 1986 when it welcomed the inaugural Hungarian Grand Prix. Originally, organizers had wanted a street circuit, similar to Monaco; while a permanent circuit became the eventual choice, the track features a number of tight and challenging corners that make it polarizing among drivers.
