26-29 July– How will the weather affect this year’s Hungarian Grand Prix?

The 2018 Hungarian Grand Prix will be held at the Hungaroring circuit around 30 minutes north-east of Budapest, it's a firm favourite among F1 fans. The track’s narrowness and lack of overtaking opportunities mean the outcome of the Hungarian Grand Prix is never clear cut, and the beautiful hillside setting means you can enjoy watching Formula One racing from almost any point in the valley.

It is regarded as one of the favourite tracks by drivers and teams. The tight and twisty circuit makes overtaking notoriously difficult at the circuit. The track provides a fantastic race for spectators, with 80% of the track visible from some areas of the grandstands.

How does weather affect racing?

Different weather conditions can result in very different races, and Formula 1 teams adapt their strategy accordingly, for example using different tyres in wet conditions, and taking account of cross winds which can cause stability problems at high speeds.

You can check the weather forecast for other events through the Events Calendar.
