Two hours prior to the start of the 28th Hungarian Grand Prix, the head of the F1 ‘dlying circus’ Bernie Ecclestone and the Hungarian Minister for National Development, Zsuzsa Németh signed an agreement to secure the future of the Hungarian Grand Prix up to 2021, extending by five years the previous contract.
