    ING has determined that the Hungarian Grand Prix could benefit from more challenging format. Next to Monaco, the Hungaroring is the circuit with the lowest average speed - due to its 14 curves and relatively short straightaway. Overtaking usually results from other driver’s mistakes or a clever pit stop strategy. Usually this summer Formula One Grand Prix is a real high-temperature race and the number of curves takes its toll on the drive’s concentration. The track is very sandy - just like the plains of Hungary. That means poor traction. The cars are set up for maximum downforce. The many curves make good vehicle balance crucial.
