Fans’ videos from the 2012 Hungarian Grand Prix

F1 videoPosted on Author Keith Collantine

Fans’ videos from the Hungarian Grand Prix including a great close-up from the grid, Michael Schumacher facing questions from local Hungarian children, and more.

Practice in slow-mo

Some slow-motion shots from practice, including the wet second session. Keep an eye out for the flow-vis on Fernando Alonso’s car and Romain Grosjean getting a bit of opposite lock on.

Schumacher and schoolchildren

Some good questions – and answers – as Michael Schumacher meets a group of local children. “It is usual to slide but not hit the wall”.

Continues here.

On the grid with Rosberg

A terrific close-up video with Nico Rosberg from someone who was on the grid at the start of the race.

Aborted start

Perhaps still sweating from the grilling he received from a group of infants, Schumacher fluffed his start by pulling up in the wrong spot.

Here’s an angle showing his mistake (see another one here) which caused the cancellation of the first start.


Lewis Hamilton gets a perfect launch as the race starts while Bruno Senna also gets away well in the Williams.

Hamilton almost loses his lead at turn one as Romain Grosjean fends off Sebastian Vettel. Michael Schumacher arrives at the first corner much later than the rest having started from the pits.

Lap one

Further around on the first lap the drivers have settled into the familiar Hungaroring single-file.


McLaren’s pit stops verged on shambolic earlier this year. Now they are one of the slickest and best-drilled teams in the pits. Here they turn around race leader Hamilton lickety-split.

Track invasion

Fans pour onto the track at the final corner after the race.
