F1’s first foray behind what used to be known as the Iron Curtain came in 1986 at a purpose-built circuit near the village of Mogyoród, the Hungaroring, less than a 30-minute drive north-east of the wonderful twin cities of Buda and Pest – where you can still see bullet-holes on the walls going back to the failed anti-Communist uprising of 1956. In F1’s turbo-charged heyday Ayrton Senna put his Lotus Renault on pole but it was compatriot Nelson Piquet’s Williams Honda which won, as it did again in 1987.
