Lance Stroll believes the Hungaroring is “an old school circuit” and is looking forward a physically tough race.
The Hungarian Grand Prix is the last race before the summer break but Stroll says it is a race that is very hard on the drivers.
“This is a hard race, it is demanding on the drivers as it is tough physically, you don’t get a break and it is usually very hot weather.”
The Williams Martini Racing driver won in Hungary during his Formula 3 days and feels it is an enjoyable track to drive as it is quite old school and narrow like the Circuit de Monaco.
“Having said that, it is really enjoyable to drive there and I am looking forward to getting back to what I consider a great track.
“It is an old school circuit, but it has been resurfaced so it’s not exactly the same as it used to be. It is also quite narrow and, like in Monaco, overtaking is not that easy, but that is all part of the challenge.”
The Canadian finished fourteenth last year and after a tough opening half of the season, could do with a favour from a track and city he loves.
“Not only is the track great, but I also love the city and have had some good times there.”
