How to watch the F1 2021 Hungarian GP

The Hungarian Grand Prix will take place between July 29 and August 1, 2021. Here's everything you need to know about the session times and where you can watch all the action unfold.

The 2021 Hungarian Grand Prix marks the final event in the first half of this year's championship. With teams heading into a four week long summer break, both Red Bull and Mercedes will be aiming to sign off with a flourish and carry momentum into the break.

Last year had Lewis Hamilton dominate proceedings for Mercedes, with Max Verstappen coming home in second despite crashing on his way to the starting grid.

Budapest's Hungaroring is a very different circuit to Silverstone, with the Hungarian venue a tight, twisty and tortuous circuit which rivals Monaco for how hard it makes a driver work.

RacingNews365.com will also be on hand to cover all of the action and you can find our live blog to follow every second of the Hungarian Grand Prix.

We will have exclusive interviews, news and analysis throughout the entire weekend in Hungary.

With the circuit playing host to the usual media day on Thursday July 29, Friday sees the return of the normal practice schedule after the changed schedule for Silverstone.

FP1 will take place on Friday morning, with FP2 then following in the afternoon.

Heading into Saturday, the usual FP3 session will take place in the morning ahead of a standard qualifying session in the afternoon.

This will determine the grid for Sunday's Grand Prix, which takes place at 2pm BST / 3pm CET.
