After two back-to-back races at the Red Bull Ring in Austria, Formula 1 is heading to Hungary and we have all the details on how you can watch the 2020 Hungarian Grand Prix on TV or online.
The third Grand Prix in Formula 1's 2020 schedule will be held at the Hungaroring in Mogyoród, Hungary and the track has 14 turns with a circuit length of 2.722 miles. The Hungarian Grand Prix will consist of 70 laps and drivers will cover just over 190 miles before finishing the race. Retired German driver Michael Schumacher currently holds the best lap record at the Hungaroring at one minute and nineteen seconds which he set back in 2004.
The Hungaroring also holds the distinction of being Formula One's first Grand Prix behind the former Iron Curtain. Back in 1985, former chief executive of the Formula One Group Bernie Ecclestone decided he wanted a race in the USSR and a friend recommended Budapest. The circuit was originally intended to be located in Budapest's largest park and be similar to the one used in the Monaco Grand Prix. However, the Hungarian government decided to build the Hungaroring outside the city near a major highway.
As was the case with the Austrian Grand Prix and last weekend's Stryian Grand Prix, each driver will get two sets of hard tires, three sets of medium tires and four sets of soft tires for this weekend's race.
At last weekend's Stryian Grand Prix, Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton managed to improve upon his fourth place finish at the Austrian Grand Prix and take the top spot followed by his teammate Valtteri Bottas and Red Bull's Max Verstappen. There are still five rounds left in the 2020 Formula One Season but currently Bottas is ranked number one with 43 points, one win and two podiums though Hamilton is a close second with 37 points, one win and one podium.
Whether you're closely following the 2020 Formula 1 season or just want to tune in to see all the action at the Hungaroring this weekend, we'll show you exactly how to watch the 2020 Hungarian Grand Prix from anywhere in the world.
