The Hungaroring lies approximately 20 kilometres north-east of Budapest, and has hosted Formula 1 grands prix since its inception. Constructed during the Cold War in 1986 in the former Eastern Bloc, the winner of the Hungaroring's inaugural race was Nelson Piquet with a Williams-Honda.

The Hungaroring is considered a challenging circuit on which even experienced drivers have difficulty in overtaking. Nick-named the "Shallow Plate" due to its siting in a natural bowl, the Hungaroring's perimeter offers superb viewing for spectators.
