Thats not possible though, for Hamilton to win the race without retaking the points lead.


Plaah, yes my mistake. And seems to be another tough race for Maccas. Unfortunatelly...
So, new ones:
1) Who will take pole and who will win the race? - Vettel for both
2) Which driver will lead the WDC after Spa ? Mark "Webo" Webber
3) Any further problems for Mclaren? I surelly hope not...
4) Will Mercedes do anything good? Nah. Don't think so.
5) Will Yamamoto outrun his teammate in Spa ? What? Are you kidding me? NO WAY! He shouldn't even be in Formula 1.

Spectacular analysis!!! :thumbsup: :lol:

brings back to my mind this one.......
Off-Topic: show
2. Who will win the race?--schumi
3. Will Michael Schumacher finish ahead of teammate, Nico Rosberg?--Nope

If Schumi wins the race, how will he finish behind Nico? :D

Well, I myself saw that one first time in Finnish forum called F1-Forum, and well yes that was after RB gave that another new wing to Vettel when he broke his own one so...

Should be a great race, Spa seldom fails to be (a great race), and I'm cautiously tipping a Red Bull (hopefully Webber, or "Webo" as he seems to be now known :p ) for the victory, with Ferrari and McLaren close behind.

2007 + 2009 was pretty dull. I don't like the new Blanchimont + Bus Stop complex. The 2004 version was better.

Autosport: Unsettled weather set to affect Spa

Autosport.com wrote:Weather patterns have been inconsistent across Europe over the last two months to say the least. The heatwave that central Europe enjoyed during the British, German and Hungarian rounds has long gone, replaced by endless low pressure systems interspersed with a few fine days in between.

This trend is set to continue in the lead up to the Belgian Grand Prix, as an intense 990 millibar area of low pressure makes the familiar trek during midweek, across the Atlantic on a north-east track, covering the UK and off towards southern Scandinavia. The Wallonia region of Belgium is in a knife-edge location, as showers may clip the circuit from time to time throughout the weekend - particularly in the evenings.

Early Forecast On Thursday evening, light or possibly moderate rain will pass through Belgium as much heavier rain skirts past to the north. Conditions will dry out overnight, leaving a dry first practice session on Friday morning. Light showers are possible towards the end of the afternoon, but temperatures will be low at just 17 degrees.

Saturday morning practice is expected to be dry but - towards the end of qualifying and during the GP2 main race - showery outbreaks of rain are set to develop once again. Temperatures will rise slightly to 18 Celsius.

A second area of low pressure will move south east from Iceland during the course of Saturday night and throughout Sunday, across the UK and towards the low countries. Sunday will start dry, but further showers could break out during the afternoon as the leading edge of this next band of rain sweeps in from the north west of Belgium. Temperatures will suffer with a maximum of just 17 degrees Celsius.

So a cool and possibly blustery weekend in store for the teams as Formula 1 hits the road again. Add in the micro-climate that Spa and the Ardennes is famous for and on paper we could be set for a thrilling weekend.

Look at how strong Hamilton was in race pace though and spa has more and longer straights than Barcelona. If they can get the blown diffusor working i think come race day it will be close

Boo.

I wish Spa was in its pre-2002 condition, with Eau Rouge being the best corner in F1, the Bus Stop being better and more challenging and there being gravel and grass rather than tarmac as run off areas.
