The Hungarian Grand Prix looks set to remain on the Formula 1 calendar until at least 2021 after Bernie Ecclestone agreed a new deal with the country's government.
Photographers were assembled ahead of Sunday's race to see the F1 boss sign the contract along with Hungarian Minister of National Development Zsuzsanna Nemeth.
"It is an extension of what we had until 2021. The whole atmosphere is good here, it is old style and we are going to see the same in Austria," Bernie Ecclestone told Sky Sports F1's Martin Brundle on his grid walk.
Earlier last week, it was confirmed that the Austrian Grand Prix will return to the calendar next season after an 11-year absence.
The Hungaroring made its debut in 1986 and only Monaco and Italy's Monza circuit have been on the calendar for longer uninterrupted spells.
