Results from the 1997 Formula One Hungarian Grand Prix held at Hungaroring on August 10, 1997. Hill, as defending world champion, had experienced a miserable year in the uncompetitive Arrows-Yamaha, but the team experienced a spike in performance levels at Hungary, mainly due to their Bridgestone tyres. Hill qualified 3rd, then proceeded to overtake Michael Schumacher and lead for the majority of the race. However, a throttle linkage failure developed in the last few laps and he was overtaken by Jacques Villeneuve part way through the final lap. The problem, which denied the Arrows team its first ever win, proved to have been caused by the failure of a washer valued at 50 pence.[1]

Johnny Herbert scored his only podium of the season, while Shinji Nakano equalled his career-best finish. Gianni Morbidelli returned for Sauber in place of Norberto Fontana after missing three races through injury.
