The Grand Prix of Hungary is run at the Hungaroring, in the Mogyorod forest near Budapest. The first modern Hungarian GP was run on this circuit in 1986. It created world wide news by being the first F1 race behind the "Iron Curtain."
The Hungaroring is 2.8 miles (4.381 km). It has 14 turns. (See map below) The circuit is narrow and twisty. It sees very little use, so it's usually dusty with very little rubber laid down on it. This means there is very, very little overtaking. A prime example was in 1990, when Senna wasn't able to get his McLaren Honda (back when that was a good thing) around Thierry Boutsen's slower Williams for the win.
Drivers who scored their 1st F1 win in Hungary: Damon Hill in 1993, Fenando Alonso in 2003, Jenson Button in 2006 and Heikki Kovalainan in 2008.
The first Hungarian Grand Prix was run on June 21st, 1936, in Budapest's Nepliget Park.

After 18 successful years Mercedes will leave the DTM series to race in........FORMULA E
Those of us who think Formula E is a bit stupid will find this hard to swallow, but Merc once again says it will assist in the development of their future road cars.

Despite a vote from the teams with a majority against, the halo will be in the cars next season. The FIA forced it through on safety grounds.
I thought the shield would at least get an opportunity to be improved to see if they could solve the issues Vettel experienced.
