Hungarian Grand Prix 2019: Time, TV channel and live stream details

It’s time for the 2019 Hungarian Grand Prix! The 12th stop on the 2019 Formula One world tour is the Hungaroring in Mogyoród, with practice, qualifying and the main race spread across Friday, Saturday and Sunday. You’ll be pleased to hear that there are no (particularly) early morning starts this weekend.

Our guide explains how to catch this weekend’s Hungarian Grand Prix action, including channels and UK times for practice races, qualifying and, of course, the main event. Plus, how to live stream everything, no matter where in the world you are.

Hamilton, who had his first stinker of the season last time out in Germany, was victorious in Hungary last year − and he’ll be looking to bounce back this weekend after his ninth-place finish last Sunday. He’s still miles ahead of everyone else in the race for the championship though.

Arch-rival Sebastian Vettel, on the hand, put in what was probably his best performance of the season, starting at the back of the pack and speeding his way into second place.

Red Bull’s Max Verstappen once again caught the eye, picking up his second victory from the last three races. Can he hold off Hamilton once again?
