Following four grands prix in five weeks, Formula 1 teams are set for the final race in hungary before the annual summer break.

“The Hungaroring is one of the shortest tracks on the calendar, but as it is set within its own amphitheatre, it is a terrific place for fans to watch.”, said Williams Martini Racing‘s Chief Technical Officer, Paddy Lowe.

He added: “The race usually attracts a great crowd from across Europe who enjoy the event as well as the beautiful city of Budapest.  Temperatures can be very high and the circuit itself is quite tricky technically, so it is a good challenge for the drivers.”

“The Hungarian Grand Prix also marks the end of the mid-season, which after a triple-header followed by this double-header is greatly deserved.”

Following the race and summer break, the teams will be thrust into the last leg of the season, starting in Belgium at Spa-Francorchamps.  They will thus want to finish the first half of the season on a high note.

The team will be hoping that their bad luck will cease following the summer break.  This year they have scored a total of eight points, which were won by Russian driver Sergey Sirotkin in Azerbaijan back in April.

There are twelve races left of the season; the team will be hopeful that their points tally increases from that abysmal eight before the final race of the season in which will be held in Abu Dhabi in November.
