One of the most popular meetings on the Formula 1 circuit is the Hungarian Grand Prix. World class race drivers pit their wits and skills against each other on the Hungaroring track about 12 miles (20km) from central Budapest. The 1986 event was the first Grand Prix to take place behind the Iron Curtain, its narrow and twisting track contributing tense races where cars must make dangerous and difficult passes to move up the field. It's a wonderfully exciting, hugely popular and unmissable sporting extravaganza.

Venue: Hungaroring Circuit, Mogyorod

Date: 30 July to 1 August 2021
