The BMW WilliamsF1 Team heads to Hungary for the Grand Prix on the 19th August with three victories, two pole positions and five fastest laps from the first 12 races. However, the team is aware this race will present it with a difficult task, as the low-downforce Hungaroring track is almost equal to Monaco in being tight, twisty and one where a good grid position is vital, as overtaking opportunities are very rare. The Hungarian race has been one of highs and lows for WilliamsF1. The team won the first race there in 1986 with Nelson Piquet and has won seven of the 15 races. Meanwhile Nigel Mansell clinched his World Championship there in 1992, but in 1987 started from pole, led for 70 of the 76 laps and then lost a rear wheel in sight of the chequered flag.
