F1 track action starts on Friday at the Hungaroring with two, 1-hour free practice sessions (FP1 & FP2) for teams to find the perfect setup.
Free practice 3 (FP3) takes place on Saturday afternoon, building up to qualifying; a 3-part session where lap times decide starting positions for the Grand Prix on Sunday.
|Friday||First Practice||14:00 - 15:00|
|Second Practice||17:00 - 18:00|
|Saturday||Third Practice||13:00 - 14:00|
|Qualifying||16:00 - 17:00|
|Sunday||Grand Prix (70 laps or 120 minutes)*||15:00 - 17:00|
*An F1 race has a maximum time of 2 hours, but can run for up to 3 hours if there are red flags. Jump to full timetable.
Try not to blink if you have a view of the pits. This is where pit crews hone their skills for the 2-second tyre change.
Pit stop Practice at the Hungarian GP is from 10:05am-10:30am on Saturday.
This is your chance to snoop around the world’s most expensive garages with a salivating up-close look at some glorious F1 tech.
Pit lane walks at the Hungarian GP are scheduled for 4:00-7:00pm on Thursday. Anyone with a 3-day ticket AND a pit lane walk ticket (€25) can attend. Find out more and buy your tickets here.
This is when the grandstands really start to fill up. 2 hours before lights out, drivers warm-up for the race by waving at fans and answering questions. Last chance photo op before the helmets go on.
The driver’s parade at the Hungarian GP is from 1:00pm-1:30pm on Sunday.
A good chance to see the star drivers of the future. F2, the feeder series to F1 has seen many well-known names pass through its ranks. The single-seater cars have an identical chassis, engine and tyres which means it’s all about driver skill and the racing is close.
On Friday the F2 action starts with a 45-minute practice session in the morning and a 30-minute qualifying in the afternoon. The Sprint Race is on Saturday and the Feature Race in on Sunday.
Formula 3 is an important step on the road to success in single-seater motor racing. Drivers who do well here usually go on to compete in F2 and sometimes even make the leap to F1.
The F3 schedule starts with a 45-minute practice session on Friday morning followed by a qualifying session. The first race takes place on Saturday morning and the second and final race takes place on Sunday morning.
W Series is an all-female racing series that aims to popularise motorsports for women and girls. By doing so it hopes to provide a launchpad for higher tiers of motorsport including ultimately, F1. The emphasis is on driver skill so all cars use an identical chassis and engine which are comparable to Formula 3 cars.
Action gets underway on Friday with practice and qualifying. The 30-minute race takes place on Saturday afternoon.
