Hungary's Hungaroring takes over from Silverstone as F1 test track

This F1 season’s two in-season tests will take place in Hungary and Bahrain, while Silverstone misses out

Hungary's Hungaroring has taken over from Silverstone as an official Formula 1 test track.

According to several reports today, this season’s two in-season tests will take place in Hungary and Bahrain, while Silverstone misses out.

Under F1 regulations, teams can take part in two two-day tests during the 2017 season with the Hungaroring taking pole position as host.

The latest schedule means Silverstone loses out for only the second time since the in-season tests returned to Formula 1.
