Following two consecutive races in Austria, the Formula 1 calendar moves on to Hungary for the Hungarian GP 2020 on 17-19 July.
Mercedes have already taken a good lead over their rivals after just the first two races. Their two direct rivals, Ferrari and Red Bull can’t seem to keep the gap minimal even at this opening stage of the season. However, there is plenty of time for a turnaround and for Mercedes to be given some sort of challenge.
Just like with the opening races, the Hungarian GP will be held without fans. Heavy fines will be imposed if any rules are broken by the teams’ personnel present at the Hungaroring.
