Formula One Teams Arrive In Hungary For Grand Prix - Renault’s Race Truck Got Stuck
Formula One teams are continually arriving at Mogyoród, the site of this weekend’s Hungarian Grand Prix. 



Following a race in Germany, the racers and teams immediately packed up and left for Hungary.

The journey, however, was not smooth for everybody as Renault’s truck broke through the barrier on Hungary’s M1 highway and plunged into the ditch on the other side of the road.

According to press reports, the driver of the truck got stuck in the vehicle and fire-fighters had to free him.  The team said the driver was not seriously hurt but provided no information on whether the contents of the truck were damaged. 



The 2019 race kicks off at 3.10 pm Sunday - see the video below for a quick preview.

    Classical. This is what it has become over the past years, the race track Hungaroring. It was built almost three decades ago as a rarity, the first one beyond the Iron Curtain, and now it is still special as the third behind Monte-Carlo and Monza to have continuously featured in the race calendar.
