|1. The Hungarian Grand Prix attracts fans from various countries that don’t have a local Grand Prix, for example Scandinavia and Eastern Europe.
2. The circuit’s construction began on the 1st of October, 1985 and was completed in eight months.
3. The straights are shorter than on other similar circuits, which makes overtaking difficult and rare.
4. This circuit has a length of 4,381 meters, and is of a narrow and twisty nature.
5. The Hungaroring is built in the bottom of a valley, allowing spectators to view a large portion of the track from their seats. According to the official F1 site, "more than 50 percent of the track can be seen from most vantage points."
6. The designers had originally intended to incorporate some more inspiring fast corners, but their plans were foiled by the discovery of an underground spring.
7. A critical point for visibility is the fourth corner, the fast left hander is taken blind on entry, so drivers need to be extremely alert.
8. Quite a bit of understeer occurs in the last few corners. In this high-speed chicane, the drivers run the curbs, but hitting them too hard upsets the car’s balance.
9. As overtaking is extremely difficult and the weather tends to be quite hot, this circuit is considered to be one of the toughest physically for the drivers.
10. To keep a cool head, the drivers need to cool down their body. All drivers drink a lot of fluids during this race and some even wear special cooling vests before the race.
