1990 Hungarian Grand Prix

The 1990 Hungarian Grand Prix was a Formula One motor race held at Hungaroring on 12 August 1990. It was the tenth race of the 1990 Formula One World Championship. The race was the sixth Hungarian Grand Prix and the fifth to be held at the Hungaroring. It was held over 77 laps of the 3.97-kilometre (2.47 mi) circuit for a race distance of 305.5 kilometres (189.8 mi).

Belgian driver Thierry Boutsen, driving a Williams-Renault, took his third and final Grand Prix win after leading the entire race. Ayrton Senna, driving a McLaren-Honda, finished less than 0.3 seconds behind Boutsen, having survived a collision with the Benetton-Ford of Alessandro Nannini. Nannini’s teammate Nelson Piquet finished third. As of the 2021 Bahrain Grand Prix, this is the most recent victory in Formula One for a driver competing under the Belgian flag.

With rival Alain Prost failing to finish, Senna increased his lead in the Drivers’ Championship over the Frenchman.
