Formula Renault 3.5

Nico Müller knows nearly all the secrets of the Hungaroring, even though he will be racing on the track for the first time in the Formula Renault 3.5 Series. Here, the Swiss talks us through this technical, twisty circuit, where drivers can easily get stuck in a bad rhythm.

“At the Hungaroring, there’s only one long straight with heavy braking. So the first turn is the best place to try to overtake. You have to take more risks than usual at the start in order to gain some positions from the outset. The second turn can also catch you out, as the car tends to be very unstable there.

“The second sector is the most important. Turn four, a very tricky one as it is fast and blind on entry, sets the tempo for the whole sequence. It is a series of slow and fast chicanes. You have to push the car and be very responsive. The balance of the car is determined by this sector.

“The third sector is made up of slow, narrow bends. The last bend is important. It feels as if it’s never going to end, and there’s a change of grip in the middle. You really have to take care on the exit of this final turn and activate DRS as soon as possible, so that you can launch an attack at the end of the pit straight.”
