The last appointment before the summer break is the Hungarian GP which will be held at the Hungaroring for the 37th year running. According to Brembo engineers, it is a track with a medium level of difficulty for brakes. On a scale of 1 to 5, it is rated 3 on the difficulty index.
The windiness of the track makes it seem like a big go-kart circuit; this affects the average lap speed which is below 205 km/h (127 mph) throughout the race but can increase to 214 km/h (132 mph) during the qualifying rounds. The lack of straight sections, with the exception of the main one which is in any case just over 900 meters (984 yards) long, stops the brakes from cooling down but at the same time, it has very few hard braking points.
