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.



I second that Mr Silly! And here across the pond we have used "Webbo" for several years, I think I've always called him that.


Time for the Prancing Horse to sit on top of the podium again. Here's my twenty bucks to Hammy rear ending Seb on his out lap to the grid! Two twits with one stroke!!!


Let the flaming begin in 3, 2, 1,........ :rofl:


I for 1 hope that Hamilton wins. Teach these stewards.to take his win away...
Requiescat in pace, Jules Bianchi

One of my favourite Spa laps - Raikkonen in 2002. The sound of that V10 engine, and the way he slides the car nearly everywhere. He stayed flat when there was a smoke screen at Radillon! Superb.

Belgian Grand Prix Fast Facts
http://www.yallaf1.com/2010/08/26/belgi ... a-preview/
* Some of motorsport’s greatest names have been multiple winners of the Belgian Grand Prix. Seven-times world champion Michael Schumacher has won the race six times; triple champion Ayrton Senna won it five times; double champion Jim Clark was unbeaten from 1962-1965, while 2007 world champion Kimi Räikkönen is also a four-time Spa winner.
* The Belgian Grand Prix has been part of the Formula One World Championship since 1950, and has failed to appear on the calendar only six times: 1957, 1959, 1969, 1971, 2003 and 2006. Along with the Monaco, British and Italian Grands Prix, the Belgian Grand Prix is one of only four events surviving from the original 1950 World Championship.
* No Belgian has ever won the Belgian Grand Prix. Of the 22 Belgians to have raced in Formula One, only two have won grands prix: Jacky Ickx (8) and Thierry Boutsen (3).
* Three venues have hosted the Belgian Grand Prix since 1950: Spa-Francorchamps (42 times); Zolder (10: 1973, 1975-1982, 1984) and Nivelles (twice: 1972 and 1974).
* One of the most memorable Belgian Grands Prix was in 1998, when a huge 14-car accident occurred on the first lap of the race. Seven cars were unable to take the restart and there was a further incident on lap 25 when race leader Michael Schumacher’s Ferrari hit David Coulthard’s McLaren, losing a wheel and forcing Schumacher to retire after completing most of a lap on three wheels. Through the chaos the Jordans of Damon Hill and Ralf Schumacher emerged to take the team’s first victory, as a 1-2 finish.

just watched highlights of Grand Prix 2000. Mika did a great job with that overtaking maneuver. Judging on his reaction during press-conference he felt lucky to stay on the road after it.

I think there will be the same amount of cutting if not more in that corner.
