Formula 1 Hungarian Grand Prix 2022: Time, TV, Live Stream

Fresh from a crucial French Grand Prix in the title chase, Formula 1 is heading straight to the Hungaroring for the Hungarian Grand Prix.

Charles Leclerc had withstood an attack from Max Verstappen during the first stint at Paul Ricard, but shortly after Verstappen had pitted Leclerc against him, he had lost the rear of his Ferrari and slipped into the barriers. His French GP was over.

Verstappen took full advantage as he took the win and extended his title lead over Leclerc to 63 points – the biggest gap enjoyed by a league leader so far this season.

Leclerc had already said the the preparation for the summer holidays was “very important” and now he reaches the last of those races, the Hungarian Grand Prix, with his title hopes fading.

Here’s everything you need to know ahead of the 2022 Hungarian Grand Prix.

Where is the 2022 Hungarian Grand Prix taking place?

The Hungaroring, located in the small village of Mogyoród, Hungary, has proudly hosted the Formula 1 Hungarian Grand Prix since 1986.

The narrow and winding 2.72-mile circuit earns its nickname “Monaco without the buildings” and as a result overtaking is quite difficult, but spectacular when a driver gets it right.

Formula 1 holds the Hungarian Grand Prix in mid-summer and that only adds to the uniqueness of this place.

Usually a track gets faster over the race weekend because it is “rubberized”. But that doesn’t always happen at the Hungaroring due to the dryness and dustiness of the area at this time of year.

It took until 2006 to see the first wet Hungarian Grand Prix.

The current track has 14 turns. Turn 4 is named after Nigel Mansell because he lost a wheel there in the 1987 event, while Turn 11 is named after Jean Alesi because of the big accident he had in this curve during the qualifying for the 1995 Hungarian Grand Prix.

Where can I watch the 2022 Hungarian Grand Prix?

British pay-TV broadcaster Sky Sports will broadcast the entire race weekend on its dedicated Sky Sports F1 channel. You can also access a live stream of the coverage through Now TV for a one-time fee.

Route to the Hungarian Grand Prix

The Hungaroring is a fairly easy track to reach. It’s close to Budapest and its Ferihegy International Airport, but it might be cheaper for some fans to fly to Vienna and then travel to Budapest by bus or train.

There are four main train stations in Budapest, but most international trains will arrive at Keleti station on the M3 metro line.

With shuttle buses now linking local train and metro stations to the circuit, daily Grand Prix journeys are much easier.

You can reach the circuit from Budapest by driving northeast on the E71/M3 towards Miskok.

Which drivers have won the Hungarian Grand Prix?

Lewis Hamilton, Mercedes, wears street clothes in the paddock.  France, July 2022.

Lewis Hamilton has enjoyed more success than any other driver on this circuit and, in some way, winning eight of the 14 F1 races he has entered. One more win would see him set a new record for most wins by a driver at a grand prix.

Michael Schumacher has the second most wins, winning four times. The third of them, in 2001, was particularly significant since this victory earned him his fourth world championship.

The only other driver to win in Hungary more than twice is Ayrton Senna, who did so in 1988, 1991 and 1992. He could have had more too, narrowly missing out in 1989 and 1990.

Nelson Piquet, Damon Hill, Jenson Button, Sebastian Vettel, Mika Hakkinen and Jacques Villeneuve have all won the race twice.

And in 2021, one of the most chaotic Hungarian GPs in history saw Alpine’s Esteban Ocon record a shock victory, the first and only of his Formula 1 career to date. Could lightning strike twice for the Frenchman?

The last 10 winners of the Hungarian Grand Prix are as follows:

2021 Esteban Ocon (Alpine)
2020 Lewis Hamilton (Mercedes)
2019 Lewis Hamilton (Mercedes)
2018 Lewis Hamilton (Mercedes)
2017 Sebastian Vettel (Ferrari)
2016 Lewis Hamilton (Mercedes)
2015 Sebastian Vettel (Ferrari)
2014 Daniel Ricciardo (Red Bull)
2013 Lewis Hamilton (Mercedes)
2012 Lewis Hamilton (McLaren)

Tire choices for the 2022 Hungarian Grand Prix

As with the last round in France, Pirelli will take the mid-range compounds to the Hungarian Grand Prix.

This means the C2 tire will be the hard tyre, the C3 the medium and riders will have the C4 available as the soft tyre.

As always, intermediate rain and rain tires will also be included. Judging by the forecast, these might be needed on Saturday.
