The Hungarian Grand Prix comes on the back of a three-week break between races. In the middle of that break was the Young Driver Test, which this year doubled up as an opportunity to test some new construction tyres.

The race has been a fixture on the calendar every year since 1986, when it became the first-ever Formula One race behind the Iron Curtain. This was seen as a huge coup in broadening the sport's horizons.

Back then, Hungary was a quasi-communist member of the Eastern Bloc and signatory of the Warsaw Pact. Today, it's a multi-party market economy and member of the European Union and NATO.

But while the country has changed so much, the venue has not. The race is still held at the Hungaroring, close to the capital Budapest.

Michael Schumacher has the most wins here with four, while Lewis Hamilton leads the current crop with three.
