Pit stop Practice at the Hungarian GP is from 10:05am-10:30am on Saturday.

Track Parade

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.

Formula 2

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

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

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.
