A classic of the Formula 1 calendar
The Hungarian Grand Prix is a Formula One race that is part of the annual FIA Formula One World Championship. It is held at the Hungaroring, Budapest. The first Hungarian Grand Prix was held on 21 June 1936 over a 3.1-mile (5.0 km) track laid out in Népliget, a park in Budapest. However, politics and the ensuing war meant the end of Grand Prix motor racing in the country for fifty years. The 1986 Hungarian Grand Prix was the first Formula One race to take place behind the Iron Curtain.
