Hungaroring Circuit: three corners in detail

Turn 2
After exiting the tight Turn 1 in second gear, the drivers accelerate quickly up to 6th before braking downhill into Turn 2. It is very easy to break too late, locking a wheel and compromising the racing line at corner entry. Equally it is very tempting to get on the power too early, which will compromise the racing line through 3, this penalty being carried along the entirety of following straight. This sequence of corners rewards patience and precision. From an engine’s perspective, the aim is to produce the exact torque requested by the driver, this being just as important on overrun as on traction.

Turns 8 and 9
Although these are definitely two corners in their own right, they are inextricably linked. Exiting the chicane, the drivers accelerate from 2nd to 4th, brake and drop down to 3rd to negotiate turn 8. A quick spurt and momentarily back up to 4th before a quick touch of the brakes and back down to 3rd to tackle turn 9. Drivers have to be careful to not be too greedy through turn 8, as this will compromise their line through turn 9, this loss of speed being carried down to turn 11 as turn 10 is easily taken flat. The engine needs to be able to respond instantly to the driver’s rapidly changing demands throughout this section, such as 50ms downshifts followed by almost immediate power application.

Turn 14
Turn 14 is last corner of the circuit. Taken in 3rd gear at between 130-150kph, it is negotiated over a period of around two seconds from the point of turn-in. It is unusual in the sense that it is not a typical point-and-squirt corner, where the driver brakes, turns in and gets back on the power straight away. Instead the driver holds some pedal throughout the corner, potentially stabbing at it deliberately to overcome any understeer balance. Finally the driver arrives at the end of the corner, hopefully on the right line to get the best exit onto the start/finish straight. The engine will need to respond well to this relatively unusual set of circumstances, as any hesitation or drivability issue could upset the balance of the car mid-corner.
