Hell That was fast.

I am just watching this race to enjoy now. Mclaren are out of the championship.

Alonso is my driver now. I hope he wins this.

This track has traction written all over it.

I don't know that I necessarily agree with that. In my view, the Hungaroring is the epitome of an aero track - like a mini-Silverstone - because it doesn't have any stop/start corners. As such, it should suit Ferrari and Lotus pretty well.

Hockenheim required good traction too and Macca was in good shape,so it should be okay for us

Going to say: Vettel or Webber will win this one with Alonso with them all the way.

What about RedBull? The track definitely suited them in 2010/11, maybe because of EBD, but idk.

Hoping for a Kimi or Grosjean.

Hungary is a track of firsts quite often. So first Lotus win? First Grosjean win?

Ones I recall are first Damon Hill win, first Button win, first Heikki win, first de la Rosa podium (IIRC?). Must be a few more?

They're all "flowing" corners - not angular ones. In that sense you're right, but there are no really quick corners here other than T4. They're all slow-medium.

Alonso IIRC. Don't remember much else

What im sure about this race ...Mercedes can't place a car in top 4 on race probably on qualifying both of them (Michael and Nico) start on first 2 lines.

You're absolutely right. I just don't make a distinction between fast flowing corners and slow flowing corners, because drivers take each as fast as the aerodynamic efficiency of their car will allow.
