Hungarian Grand Prix 2013 Live Stream, dates and tickets info. Hungarian Grand Prix 2013, the 12th race in the current Formula One Season, will be held on July 28. This is one race where Sebastian Vettel of Red Bull has never won. Incidentally, this is also the only Grand Prix where it has never rained. In all all likelihood, this time too it is going to be a dry race. Or, probably it might rain if Vettel wins.
Vettel still starts as the favourite here. After all, he leads the drivers’ championship points tally. Currently, he has a 36 point-lead over Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso. If he fails to win in Budapest this time too, his hold on the top will be weakened. Vettel and Alonso are not the only drivers who will be anxious about the results of the race. Lewis Hamilton will be looking for redemption after recent controversies over illegal tyre testing and a dismal season so far. He won here last year, albeit with McLaren. Kimi Räikkönen too will be using all his experience to close in on Vettel and Alonso.
All about circuit
Hungaroring, the racing circuit about 20 km away from Budapest, is a product of the Cold War. The first Formula One race was held here in 1986, when Hungary was part of the Soviet Bloc. It was the Formula One boss Bernie Ecclestone’s sustained efforts to conduct a race in Soviet Union or one of the Eastern European countries that resulted in the birth of Hungarian Grand Prix in 1986. The race, anyway, proved a bad omen for the governments of these countries, as the Soviet Bloc collapsed a few years later.
Hungaroring is a 4.381-km-long circuit, where the drivers have to cover a distance of 306.663 km in 70 laps. Michael Schumacher has won here four times, the most by any driver. What would give Vettel confidence is that fact he has set the fastest lap at this circuit.
Overtaking is virtually impossible here. Qualifying for the pole position and avoiding mistakes – tactical or pit-stop related – will almost guarantee a win. The occasional deeds of overtaking have been recorded as spectacular events of the circuit’s history.
To sum up, those who love tactical races and nuanced driving will never miss the Hungarian Grand Prix 2013 and its live streaming.
