2018 Hungarian Grand Prix

The 2018 FIA Formula One World Championship is an ongoing motor racing championship for Formula One cars which is recognised by the governing body of international motorsport, the Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA), as the highest class of competition for open-wheel racing cars. Drivers and teams are competing in twenty-one Grands Prix for the World Drivers' and World Constructors' championship titles.

Lewis Hamilton is defending his World Drivers' Championship, after winning his fourth championship title at the 2017 Mexican Grand Prix. His team, Mercedes, are the defending Constructors' Championship, having secured their fourth consecutive title at the 2017 United States Grand Prix. After one round, Sebastian Vettel leads Hamilton in the World Drivers' Championship by seven points. Kimi Räikkonen is third, a further three points behind. In the World Constructors' Championship, Ferrari lead Mercedes by eighteen points, with Red Bull Racing third.

A revision of the sport's technical regulations means that a new cockpit protection device—commonly known as the "halo"—was introduced for the 2018 championship. The introduction of the halo in Formula One is the first stage of a planned roll-out that would see the device adopted in all FIA-sanctioned open-wheel racing series by 2020.
