Hungary Hungary Hamilton! By far the worst opening line I’ve ever typed. At the start of the season Vettel hadn’t won four of the races on the 2013 calendar, now just two remain, Hungary and USA. Vettel could also achieve his 40th pole position.

This will be the 28th Hungarian GP, all of which have been held at the Hungaroring. The Hungarian GP is one of few races to be held every year since the first race, but no other race first held in the 80s has ran every year up to today. The Hungaroring is a 4.381km circuit with 16 corners and 70 laps in the race, a total distance of 306.670km. 12 races have been won from pole position and another five from second on the grid.

15 drivers have won the Hungarian GP, McLaren are the most successful at the track with 11 wins and Michael Schumacher the most successful driver with four. Schumacher also holds the lap record, set in 2004, with a time of 1:19.071 and an average speed of 199kph or 124mph.

This weekend will be Adrian Sutil’s 100th grand prix and possibly his 70th race finish. Sutil has driven for three teams, but they are all the same team. He started as a test driver for Midland, who became Spyker before the season even finished, raced for Spyker the following season and then stayed with the team when Vijay Mallya purchased it.

The Silly Stats

The Rubik’s Cube was invented by a Hungarian, you could line 76,860 of them around the Hungarian GP. It would take 14,832,564 of them to completely cover the track surface in Rubik’s Cubes.
