Max Verstappen says he is eager to return to racing at the Hungaroring, which he has likened to a go-kart track.

The Hungarian Grand Prix is one of the most established events on the Formula 1 calendar and next weekend's race marks the mid-point of the 2016 campaign.

Verstappen, who took a then-career best of fourth at the 2015 event, is hopeful of a good result.

"I always enjoy driving there because it’s a small track with a big car so it gives a bit of a go kart feeling," said Verstappen, who has taken three podium finishes this season.

"It’s also pretty tough due to all the turns, so you don’t really get a chance to rest and usually end up pretty sweaty in the heat.

"Sector 2 is my favourite part of the track, it’s all about hitting the apex of one corner right so you are in the right position for the next one. If you get it wrong it’s a big time penalty, so you need to be really focused.

"I have been there a few times testing with 2.0 litre, with Formula 3 and once with F1 so I’m really looking forward to it again."
