Daniel Ricciardo has said his likes the Hungaroring as the Aston Martin Red Bull Racing driver arrives in Budapest for the final race before the summer break.
The Australian won the Hungarian Grand Prix in 2014 and disagrees with the saying that it is like Monaco.
“I like the Hungarian GP.” Said Ricciardo. “Everyone always says it’s Monaco without walls, but it’s not, it’s Hungary!
“It’s fast, it’s normally really hot and even though it’s a tight track there’s still quite a lot of overtaking and always a bit going on.
“The middle sector is one of the best of the whole year, it’s pretty fast with really quick changes in direction.”
Ricciardo has been on the podium a further two times after his win and enjoys spending time in the city of Budapest.
“The track used to be pretty bumpy but it’s improved a lot recently. I’ve always liked the circuit but the city is also really cool.
“Budapest is amazing; it’s very pretty, there’s really good food and I always enjoy spending time in the city centre.”
Hungary is the last race before the summer break and Ricciardo admits you can tell in the paddock that everyone is looking forward to it.
“Because it’s just before the summer break there’s also always a good feeling in the paddock before everyone takes a well-earned holiday.”
