A city known for its history, beauty and culture, the mid-summer jaunt to Budapest for the Hungarian Grand Prix makes it a particularly popular event, even before you consider it is the 'home' race for many surrounding countries, with large influxes from Finland, Germany, Austria and Poland, amongst others. HISTORY A race that emerged from Bernie Ecclestone's desire to have a Grand Prix behind the 'Iron Curtain' (though a race was originally pitched at the USSR) Hungary instead got the nod to host the first Eastern European F1 event in 1986. Held at a new, purpose-built venue - after the proposed inner city circuit was shelved - the Hungaroring has become a mainstay on the calendar ever since. Opinions differ about the circuit; its twisty layout, high kerbs, minimal overtaking points and relentless corners (which are often made more arduous by the typical high temperatures) have earnt it a reputation as a 'Monaco without the walls! Layout changes in 2003, which saw a slower first corner and revisions to turn twelve, were well received, but while Alonso and Hamilton are fans, many others are not.
