The first part of the 2021 season of the F1 will conclude this weekend with the Hungarian Grand Prix, which is carried out in the circuit of Hungaroring. After this test there will be several weeks without activity since the contest will face its second part on August 29 with the Belgian GP.

The dutch Max Verstappen (Red Bull) arrives as the leader of the tournament with only eight points of advantage over the English Lewis Hamilton (Mercedes), who drastically reduced that difference with their victory in the Grand Prix of Great Britain and the abandonment of his rival, with whom he touched during the first lap of the race ...

2020 Hungarian GPUnlike Silverstone, which is marked by abundant fast linked curves, the Hungaroring is the closest thing to a large-scale go-kart circuit: The track is narrow, with an old-school layout and twists and turns, without offering any break for the tires. Overtaking is usually difficult here, a detail that determines the strategies in the race.

Temperatures are high at these heights of European summer, to which is added the location of the track in a kind of natural amphitheater, which reduces the flow of air. This sum of circumstances makes this test a challenge for both single-seaters and drivers.

In the 2020 edition, a large number of strategies different, largely as a result of the appearance of rain before departure. In 2019 there were options at one or two stops (the winner, Lewis Hamilton, opted for the latter). The teams accumulate a wealth of experience and data at this track, which has been on the calendar since 1986.

2020 Hungarian GPPirelli has designated for this appointment the three middle zone compounds from the range: C2 as P Zero White (hard), C3 as P Zero Yellow (medium) and C4 as P Zero Red (soft).

The cover nomination is identical to the one used last season. It is a circuit that is not very demanding on the tires, so those in the middle of the range adapt perfectly.
