Welcome back to race day at the Hungaroring for the Hungarian Grand Prix, the 13th round of the 2006 FIA Formula One World Championship.

Sunday's weather had been due to be the best of the weekend, with a forecast high of 23 degrees Celsius and a mainly dry but cloudy day. However, the day started damp and the morning's GP2 race was run in sodden conditions. The question now is whether they will remain for the afternoon's main event.

The 4.381 kilometre (2.722 mile) circuit is unchanged since last year. The 70-lap race will run over 306.633 kilometres (190.560 miles) and will start at 1400 hours local time (1200 GMT).
