HUNGARIAN GRAND PRIX

The Hungarian Grand Prix has played a special role in the history of Scuderia Toro Rosso, because it was at this race that a couple of our drivers started their F1 careers, including our most successful alumnus Sebastian Vettel. When the Formula 1 circus first came here in '86, Hungary wasn't quite the Forbidden City, but it did provide a tantalising glimpse of life in "Eastern" Europe, with armed border guards, austere living conditions and a sense you were stepping back in time. It was often said that Budapest was a great city to go shopping if there was anything you had forgotten to buy in the Sixties! These days, it's a bustling modern city, apart from the magnificent historic buildings and its most appealing natural feature, the River Danube that cuts it into Buda and Pest, the two sides joined by some spectacular bridges. The actual Hungaroring circuit is fun and frustrating all at the same time: driving a single lap of this twisty "Monaco without the barriers" is a challenge enjoyed by all the drivers, but on race day, the difficulties of overtaking, despite the main straight being lengthened a few years back, can make for the occasional traffic jam.
