Welcome to race day here in Hungary, where the Grand Prix will be held in sweltering heat.

At present the temperature is 27 degrees Celsius and it is still climbing. It is expected to peak at almost 30 by the start of the race.

The teams have all been expecting this and made their race strategies accordingly. After Hockenheim, Michelin is expected to have an advantage, but Bridgestone believes its tyres will be better over a distance rather than over one qualifying lap. Once again, we will be watching a very tough race.
