NOTES:
The Hungarian Grand Prix at Hungaroring is the 11th round on the 2014 Formula One calendar.

There have been 28 previous Hungarian GPs, and all of them have been contested on the Hungaroring circuit. Monza (Italian Grand Prix) and Monte Carlo (Monaco Grand Prix) are the only circuits with a longer run of consecutive races.

Michael Schumacher and Lewis Hamilton share the record for most victories in the Hungarian GP with four each. Hamilton has won this race the past two years.

McLaren leads all constructors with 11 victories in the Hungarian GP. Williams is next in line with seven wins, followed by Ferrari with five. McLaren has won six of the last nine races in Hungary.

Fernando Alonso set the record as the youngest driver to win a F1 grand prix when he took the checkered flag in Hungary in 2003. Driving for Renault, Alonso's maiden F1 victory came when he was 22 years and 26 days old. Sebastian Vettel surpassed that record five years later when he won the Italian Grand Prix at the age of 21 years and 73 days old. Vettel drove for Toro Rosso in 2008.

Damon Hill also scored his first career F1 victory in the Hungarian GP in 1993, driving for Williams. Hill became the first son of a former world champion (Graham Hill) to win a grand prix.

Jenson Button's victory in the 2006 Hungarian GP -- the first win of his F1 career -- came from the 14th starting position, which is the furthest back a driver has started and won this event. Button drove for Honda that year. Nigel Mansell claimed the victory in the Hungarian GP from the 12th starting spot in 1989, driving for Ferrari. All other Hungarian GPs have been won from a starting position no worse than fourth.

Hamilton's win in the 2009 Hungarian GP was the first F1 victory for a car equipped with a Kinetic Energy Recovery System (KERS). He drove for McLaren at the time.

Four-time F1 world champion Sebastian Vettel has yet to win the Hungarian GP. Prior to 2014, during his first five seasons as a Red Bull driver, Vettel claimed at least one victory in every other country to host a grand prix.

F1 takes a three-week "summer vacation" before round 12 in this year's world championship, which will be on Aug.24 with the Belgian Grand Prix in Spa, Belgium. Vettel won last year's race there, beginning a record-tying streak of nine victories to finish the 2013 season.
