The Hungarian Grand Prix was the 13th round of the 2006 Formula One Season. Run in changeable conditions on August 6th 2006, the race was won by Jenson Button – the British driver's first win in F1. In a career-best second place was McLaren-Mercedes driver, Pedro de la Rosa, with Nick Heidfeld completing the podium for BMW Sauber. This is the only time that the Japanese national anthem was played on the podium after the race, driver or constructor.

In the treacherous conditions, only 11 cars crossed the finish line. The final point for eighth place however, was awarded to Michael Schumacher as the he had begun his 68th lap before crashing out. 9th place Tiago Monteiro completed the race 3 laps down on the leader, having only completed 67 laps.

Robert Kubica had finished the race in 7th, but was disqualified when his car was found to be underweight.

The result left standings at the top of the Drivers' and Constructors' championships almost as they were before the race, with Fernando Alonso leading Michael Schumacher by 10 points, with Felipe Massa a further 38 points behind. Renault retained their lead over Ferrari by a slightly shortened lead of 7 points (previously 10). McLaren-Mercedes closed the gap behind Ferrari to 57 points.

* Michael Schumacher and Fernando Alonso were given two-second time penalties for each part of qualifying for infringements incurred in practice. Schumacher overtook two drivers (Robert Kubica and Alonso) under red-flag conditions in the Saturday practice session, while Alonso was penalized for dangerous driving and overtaking under yellow flags.

Jenson Button and Christijan Albers both received a 10 place grid penalty because of earlier engine changes.

The Grand Prix stewards stated that Scott Speed impeded another driver during the qualifying session, and penalized him by cancelling his three fastest qualifying times. His qualifying time became 1:23.005 instead of 1:22.317, setting him one position back on the grid.
