Notas de Pedro de la Rosa:
https://imgur.com/tM1fO4j.png


El Gran Premio de Bélgica se celebra anualmente en el mítico circuito de Spa-Francorchamps.

Caracterizado por un clima impredecible y su gran longitud, es el circuito más largo del campeonato.

Es un gran premio considerado clásico, debido a que desde 1925 se disputan carreras en este trazado belga, siendo una cita casi obligada del calendario. En su historia ha alternado apariciones con los circuitos de Zolder y Nivelles-Baulers a lo largo de los años, pero con la definitiva continuidad de Spa.

Entró en el mundial en el año 1950 con la primera carrera ganada por Juan Manuel Fangio. El GP del año 1982 se recuerda como un día negro por la muerte del gran Gilles Villeneuve en la vuelta de calificación en el trazado de Zolder. Históricamente Spa cuenta con la colisión de coches más grande de la F1, en 1998, donde se vieron involucrados muchísimos coches, más de la mitad de la parrilla.

El circuito de Spa se ha reducido en los últimos años de su longitud original de 14.9 kilometros, pero sigue siendo la pista más larga en el calendario. La vuelta de 7.004 kilometros actual conserva gran parte de su carácter original y sigue las ondulaciones naturales de la región de las Ardenas.

La pista de enormes proporciones en las Ardenas belgas es la favorita de los pilotos y los aficionados. La naturaleza de alta velocidad de la pista también presenta un importante reto para los ingenieros.

El circuito está dominado por las rectas de principio y final de vuelta, con una sección central virada entre las curvas 5 a 14. Curvas rápidas y radicales, incluyendo a la legendaria Eau Rouge, uno de los lugares favoritos de muchos de los pilotos de la Fórmula Uno.

Climatológicamente es el circuito más especial y extraño que se encuentra en el campeonato, con lo que en una parte del circuito puede hacer sol y en otra llover intensamente provocando carreras alocadas y divertidas para el espectador.

Bienvenido Hernán :crigon_04:

Sobre Vettel y Ferrari, si quieres te miento :gaydude:, pero no quisiera.

No es que el equipo quiera que Vettel no gane o logre podios, o que quieran que Charles gane a Sebastian.
Lo que quieren es que los dos consigan el máximo posible, nadie quiere perder puntos, ni salir en las noticias por roturas o accidentes, sería totalmente de estúpidos, y seguro que no lo son.

Son cosas distintas, aunque como siempre ocurre en los malos momentos, coinciden, son las sempiternas leyes de Murphy (que no se deben olvidar nunca).

Ferrari:
Directamente, el motor sin "los esteroides" del apasado año, no da la potencia necesaria en la forma necesaria, poca en bajas rpm, demasiado brusco el incremento, y una caida muy abrupta en altas (manteniendo el consumo máximo preciso).
Si a lo anterior, le añades un diseño aero fallido (aquello de que "el papel lo aguanta todo", todo sale muy bien, pero en la realidad es otra cosa) :ouch:...

Vettel:
El coche es muy brusco y nervioso de la trasera, y eso nunca le dió confianza a Vettel (con ningún auto), lo que hace que Vettel dude más y no apure el límite de la estabilidad, lo que hace que Charles le termine sacando ventaja, que lleva a que Vettel y su equipo no tengan claro por dónde buscar ese poco más que les hace falta, lo que fácilmente lleva a leves desajustes que en lugar de mejorar, empeoran, lo que hace más complicado buscar confianza en el comportamiento del coche... y vuelta a empezar...:confused2:

A Leclerc le molesta menos ir sobrevirando un poco (remarco el poco, porque es una línea muy muy fina) :sherlock:, lo que le concede una ventaja en confianza de pilotaje. Nadie quiere tener accidentes, y estos siempre vienen después de un exceso de confianza :sherlock:...


Y no quiero ni pensar en las guerras de clanes, familias, política y poder en Ferrari :miedito:... que siempre surjen también en los peores momentos. Los laureles les van bien a todos, pero los palos... :miedito:...

Lo bueno (desde su punto de vista), es que a los rivales se les van quitando "detalles" que les suponen una serie de ventajas.
Yo no mejoro, pero si tu empeoras...

Duro, pero aunque lo pinten de verde, o lo digan en sánscrito, la realidad es muy tozuda.

johé... me voy a cambiar el nick a ... :pensando:... el "sin 0" :gaydude::roto2rie::cunaooooo::mazo::juas:

Lo dicho Hernán, bienvenido y espero que disfrutes :chocala::occasion14:

Previas de algunos de los equipos:

Belgian GP: Preview - Mercedes"We really saw our team's mind-set come to life in Spain," says Toto Wolff in his preview of this weekend's Belgian Grand Prix, which, according to bet365 bonus offers (https://uni-bonus-code.co.uk/bet365-bonus-code/) sees Lewis Hamilton (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/9/lewis-hamilton) tipped at 13/25 to win, while Max Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen) is 13/4 and Valtteri Bottas (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/3/valtteri-bottas) is 4/1.



"After struggling in Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone), we analysed our problems and tried to come to the right conclusions within just a few days. A lot of people worked tirelessly so that we could have a better race in Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona) and our strong performance on Sunday was the outcome of that effort. Winning in Spain was a great reward for all the smart work in the days before and it makes me very proud to see how this team just keeps raising the bar.


"Last week, we and the other nine F1 Teams agreed to the new Concorde Agreement. We have always said that we wanted to stay in F1, so the agreement wasn't necessarily all that surprising, but we're happy that we could bring the negotiations to a positive conclusion. We are committed to our sport and we're looking forward to the upcoming years which will see the biggest transition F1 has ever seen. This will reward agile, open-minded teams who can adapt successfully to the demands of the new rules.


"After a weekend off, we're now starting the third triple-header of the year. Our next race takes us to Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps) where we haven't won since 2017, so it feels like there's unfinished business as we head to Belgium. It's an iconic track and one of the fans' favourites, but finding the right set-up can be difficult because of the variety of characteristics; on the one hand you want as little drag as possible on the long straights, but on the other hand, you need a certain level of downforce to be quick through the corners. It's also forecast to be rainy in the Ardennes, which won't make the job any easier.


"This weekend will also be the first time that we return to Belgium after the tragic loss of Anthoine Hubert last year. It was a dark day for the entire motorsport community and our thoughts will be with his family and friends as we remember him this weekend."

Belgian GP: Preview - Red BullWe're headed to Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps)! Is this your favourite track on the calendar?



Max Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen): I love Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps), it's my favourite circuit on the calendar so I'm always looking forward to driving there. It's a bit more old school as well so there's not too much run off in some places. The elevation changes throughout the whole track, you go up and down and there are not too many slow corners, which is always very nice in an F1 car because you really get to experience the full speed and the middle sector at Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps) gives you that.


What is your favourite part of the track?

MV: My favourite part of the track is Pouhon especially, the fast left hander, it's really fast. Getting the balance right in sectors one, two and three with the long straight and infield is crucial and so there are always compromises here and there. You're also running quite low downforce, so low wing, which means the car is really alive and moving around which makes it more exciting.


Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps) marks the start of the next triple header. What are your thoughts heading into the Belgian Grand Prix?

MV: We're second in the Teams' and Drivers' Championship so now we just need to try and keep the momentum going. There are lots of long straights which of course means you can overtake here, but also I expect the guys behind us in qualifying will be very close and knowing Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) have a lot of power they will obviously be very quick too.


Do you think this track will pose one of our toughest challenges yet?

MV: Over the last few years it has been a bit up and down in terms of results for us but you never know. We don't expect this race will be our favourite this year in terms of the layout suiting our package but we will be pushing hard as we have done at every race and maximising the result as a Team.


How much are you going to miss the 'Orange Army' this weekend?

MV: The Orange Army are normally out in full force at Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps) so it's a shame we won't have any fans this year but hopefully they will enjoy the race at home on TV and I hope everyone will like my new special edition Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps) cap for this weekend.


Has it been good to have a weekend off?

MV: It's been nice to have a weekend off, especially after the triple header which you can't just keep on doing all the time, so hopefully everybody in the Team has enjoyed a rest and is recharged, ready to go again!


Two triple headers, six races, seven weeks. How busy has the season been so far?

Alex Albon: It's been busy! But it's always busy in Formula One. Obviously we're in the full swing of the season now and the races are coming thick and fast. With six races under our belt we know the areas we need to work on and the guys at the factory are working flat out to make the car better, faster but also easier to drive. Everything's going pretty well, we are improving step by step and experimenting on what works and what doesn't, just like everyone else.


How have you spent your week off before the next triple header?

AA: I've not been up to much, I've just spent the week relaxing and recharging the batteries. The triple headers are pretty hectic so it's been good to relax and of course keep fit, but driving regularly also does that. It's just about maintaining it, staying sharp and keeping the weight off for the engineers!


How does a Formula One driver relax?

AA: Well, like everyone else your options are fairly limited with the quarantine and COVID situation. We've been extra careful and basically just stayed indoors where possible, cooking our own meals, watching Netflix, the usual things. We've been doing a bit of hiking which is fun actually, if you fancy a workout then you can run up the mountain instead, just to get the heart rate up!


This week's Belgian Grand Prix is where you made your debut for Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull)! Can you believe it's been a year already?

AA: No, it's crazy! It's gone fast, that's for sure. It definitely doesn't feel like a year. I'm looking forward to this weekend, I can take what I learned from last year's race and apply it to this one so there's a bit of experience that I can take with me which is nice. We already had ideas last year and I remember how the car felt – of course it's a different car this year but it's still got similar traits so it'll be good to compare and see what we can do. As we've seen this season, we've had some really good races and Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps) is good for overtaking so I'm excited to hit the track and get going. I have good memories from last year so hopefully we can do a good job this year – Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps) is a nice track and it's one of the best ones we go to, it's iconic.


This time last year, you'd just collected your new team kit and didn't even know your mechanic's names! How different is it heading to Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps) this time around?

AA: I was pretty nervous going into my first race with the Team. Obviously you want to do a good job because you want to make a good impression. I didn't know anyone, and I'd only been in F1 for six months with Toro Rosso (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/10/toro-rosso), so going to a big team was obviously very new to me. Now I know everyone, I'm settled in with the Team, we're making progress each weekend, so it's nice to go back to the circuit where it all started.


Last year you charged through the field to fifth after a PU grid penalty. What are you expecting this weekend?

AA: I remember this weekend last year and even though the Team didn't give me any pressure, you know you want to do well and do the best job possible so to have a race like last year was pretty special. For this year, well firstly, the ban on qualifying modes has been moved back to Monza (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/13/monza), so let's see how that plays out. I don't expect this weekend will be easy as Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps) is pretty straight-line dependent and Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) are very strong power-wise. That being said, in Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) we didn't expect much and we were flying there so let's see! It's not always clear where the advantage lies at each circuit with temperatures, tyres, etc but I really enjoy Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps), it's a nice track that I don't think has suited us that well in the past, but we've seen this season is full of surprises so let's get out there and see where everyone stacks up.


Christian Horner: Max's second place finish in Spain was another great drive and once again splitting the two Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) cars was the maximum we could achieve in that race. That said, it was encouraging that we came out of the second triple header with a win and two second place finishes.


Max's podium in Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona) made it 175 for the Team and I have been present for all of them! I certainly remember the first because David Coulthard achieved that podium in Monaco and it cost me a jump into a swimming pool with just a Superman cape to wear! I don't think I will be forgetting that one in a hurry, and of course, we have every single trophy in reception at the factory as a daily reminder of why we are all here.


So, Monaco 2006 was the first one but we actually came very close in our first year, in 2005, to achieving it at the European Grand Prix held at the Nurburgring (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/14/nurburgring). David was leaving the pit lane and a Minardi pulled out alongside him. He just released the pit limiter a fraction too early and it cost him a penalty, otherwise that would have been a podium.

But 175 is quite a tally. Particularly because in its previous incarnation, the Team only had two podiums. So since Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) entered the sport in 2005, to achieve 175 podiums is testimony to all the hard work that has been put in. There are some great memories and although we take the opportunity to celebrate every podium the focus is always on the next race, not the last one.


A key aspect of the race in Spain was the Team once again setting the record for the fastest pit stop. This year the crew have set the fastest pit stop time at each of the six races and it means strategically you come to rely on your pit crew to make a quick stop. What is the secret? It is a combination of factors starting with our Sporting Director, Jonathan Wheatley and Chief Mechanic, Phil Turner plus the training regime that our human performance team put in place and the stability we have in our Team.


There is a real pride in perfecting those pit stops. Everyone wants to be on that pit crew and there is a healthy competition for those places. It is a bit like being at school and being selected for the first team. There is a sense of pride to be part of that list.


It is all about focusing on the details, practising, working on marginal gains and addressing any issues in order to achieve consistency because there is no point doing a world record stop and then doing five slower stops. We run a well-oiled machine and we also had a little bit of a boost this year from our lubricant partner ExxonMobil who supplied us with a new wheel gun lubricant to further increase our performance.


Last week, it was confirmed that all 10 teams signed the new Concorde Agreement. Negotiations were lengthy, especially given the global challenges facing the sport but in some respects they were also remarkably straightforward in comparison with previous years. Negotiating with Bernie Ecclestone in the past was always good fun, always a bit different, but Liberty were scrupulously fair with the negotiations and we were in fact the first team to sign it in Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona).


You have to take a holistic view on these things. That is what the agreement was, that is what Chase Carey and Liberty were putting on the table and it was up to the teams if they chose to take it or leave it. There was of course back and forth on certain points and there are elements that please some teams more than others, but in the end everyone came to agree on the best way forward for the good of the sport.


It is an important agreement for F1 and although the details are confidential, it provides stability and continuity for the future so we are pleased to get it over the line.


Liberty have definitely achieved some good things for the sport in terms of opening it up and generating interest from a new fan base which can only be a positive. The most important challenge now is getting the 2022 regulations right to promote better racing.


With Sunday spent away from the racetrack, after enjoying a day with the family I put my feet up at home and decided to watch the Indy 500. It was all shaping up for an exciting finish and then there was a huge crash when Spencer Pigot hit the edge of the pit wall. It was a relief to everyone to see Spencer out of the car and I was pleased to see that the Aeroscreen once again did its job and protected him. It is a great testimony to the work carried out by the engineers at Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) Advanced Technologies in conjunction with IndyCar. We are all racers at heart and are proud to be part of the campaign to protect drivers and increase safety in motorsport.


The result was also a huge success for Honda, so congratulations to them for achieving a podium lockout and win the 104th Indy 500 with Takuma Sato. Hopefully, we can replicate that in some of our future races.


Our focus now switches to Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps) and then Monza (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/13/monza) - two weekends that are traditionally quite hard races for us. Both tracks have been a strong hunting ground for Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) for a few years but the way Max is driving this season has been phenomenal. We need a bit of luck but hopefully we can have a competitive weekend in Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps).


For Alex, this marks his one year anniversary with the Team and he has changed a lot in 12 months. He is growing in experience and more confident with his feedback in what he feels the car is doing. If you look at his race performances for the past 12 months, they have been great and he impresses us every week with his ballsy overtakes, that is something we have always looked for in our drivers and he certainly has what it takes.


Lewis has been his nemesis in terms of a podium in Brazil and even a victory in Austria in the first race this year and to get one of these under his belt would have done wonders for his confidence.

Belgian GP: Preview - McLarenLando Norris (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/60/lando-norris): "The Belgian Grand Prix weekend is one I always look forward to. Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps) is one of my favourite circuits in Formula 1 and is such great fun to drive. It's a fast and flowing track with plenty of opportunities to overtake, which is a bit of a contrast to Spain. I had a good race there last year until an issue on the final lap, so I'm looking forward to getting back out on track again and going for it.



"This race also feels like a second home grand prix for me, because of my dual British/Belgian citizenship and the family I have there. I'll be running a special helmet this weekend as well, so keep an eye out for the reveal of that ahead of Friday.


"Finally, this weekend we take the time remember Anthoine Hubert, who tragically lost his life at Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps) last year. The whole racing community was shocked and saddened by what happened, and he'll be in our thoughts as we go racing again this year."


Carlos Sainz (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/47/carlos-sainz): "After the second triple-header of this season we've had a couple of days to rest and get ready for the next one. Up next is Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps), one of my favourite tracks on the calendar. Knowing how the car is behaving this season, I hope we can put together a strong race weekend. In general, we've performed well over the opening stint of races and I hope Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona) was a turning point in my season. We need to carry forward all the positive energy built in Spain because the Constructors' Championship is extremely tight and leaving points behind is not an option if we want to stay in the fight.


"As we go to Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps) again this year, we'll take the time to remember Anthoine, who sadly passed away there last year. He was an exciting young talent that was taken from us too soon, and we'll always remember him wherever we race, but even more in Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps)."


Andreas Seidl, Team Principal: "Following a weekend away from the racetrack, and a chance for the team and drivers to rest and recharge, we're ready to get going again with another European triple-header. First stop on the road is Belgium, an exciting and historic track. We've performed well over the opening stint of the season, but we know that we face a challenge in the Constructors' Championship, with third to sixth place separated only by a small amount of points. Reliability, race operations and extracting maximum performance from the car are all critical to staying in this fight.


"Finally, I would like to echo the comments of both drivers as we remember the loss of Anthoine Hubert at the Belgian Grand Prix last year. Our thoughts remain with his family and friends and we wish Juan Manuel Correa well in his continued recovery."

Belgian GP: Preview - RenaultDaniel Ricciardo (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/15/daniel-ricciardo) has his gloves off as he prepares for the next triple-header of the 2020 Formula 1 season. First-up, Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps)-Francorchamps where the Australian is targeting a return to the points.



What is there to say about the legendary Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps)-Francorchamps?

Daniel Ricciardo (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/15/daniel-ricciardo): Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps) is so iconic. I think everyone knows why it's a great place to race and one of the jewels in the Formula 1 crown. Nowadays, I actually get more of a thrill from racing there rather than in qualifying. We've done so many laps there in the high-downforce cars that a bit of that single-lap rush has gone. Eau Rouge is full throttle and in race trim with a big tank of fuel in someone's slipstream, it becomes a real corner where you're sliding on four wheels, which is pretty epic. There's also Pouhon and Blanchimont, which are not that easy in race conditions. It's a place where you can overtake, you can defend and it's high-speed racing. It's so intense and I really like it.


What is your record like there?

DR: It's been a good track for me in Formula 1: I've had podiums, a win, so it's been a successful one in the past. Last year we were having a strong weekend, but then took some damage in Turn 1. The year before I also had damage at Turn 1. Really, if you can get out of Turn 1, you're doing alright! It's one of those first corner hairpins where it's a recipe for chaos. This year it might be cleaner as we're not coming off a break, we're warmed up so hopefully it will be more straightforward.


How are you feeling with the triple-headers?

DR: It's strange actually as you're the most race fit you've been because you're in the car so much. In the car I feel as strong as I ever have. It's the days off when you feel it. In between races, you feel flatter and more fatigued and there's not a whole lot of training going on. It's really resting and recovering. We're driving so regularly our body is maintaining a lot of that race fitness.


Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps)-Francorchamps has provided Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon) with some of his favourite Formula 1 memories. From making his debut there in 2016, to qualifying in the top three in 2018, it's been a special one for the Frenchman, who aims for a strong run this weekend.


What makes Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps)-Francorchamps so challenging?

Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon): It's a demanding circuit for performance and the three sectors are all very special. I think we can perform well in Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps). Anything can happen in the race, so it'll be an interesting weekend and we'll aim to do our best.


It's been a special place for you in the past, Formula 1 debut in 2016, top three in qualifying in 2018, what do you remember about those moments?

EO: I made my debut in Formula 1 there, so Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps) is full of nice memories. I would say it's a unique track in the way you can develop as a driver. I remember being there in my first year in single-seaters and everything felt so big with those legendary corners. Then, the more you go through the junior categories you feel the difference year after year until you reach Formula 1. It felt like a good track to make my Formula 1 debut! Of course, qualifying third on the grid is one of my best memories in Formula 1 so far. It was at a crucial time when I needed to prove I deserved to be in Formula 1. To stand in the top three with Lewis [Hamilton] and Sebastian [Vettel] was something special.


How do you evaluate the past three races?

EO: It was good to come away from the races with points scored, even though we missed out in Spain. The car felt good in Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) and we definitely made a step from Hungary. I think we have a bit of work to do, but I know we'll get there. I have new parts on my car, which should help performance. I'm looking forward to that and I feel fresh after a week off and ready to race.


It's been a busy start to the season for the Renault (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/13/renault) E-Tech 20 power units as Engine Technical Director Remi Taffin previews the next trio of races, starting in Belgium this weekend.


What are the main challenges of Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps)-Francorchamps?

Remi Taffin: Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps) is a challenge because it's a long track and it has a lot of wide-open throttle time. It certainly pushes the engine to the limit but, as always, it's something we validate on the dyno. Probably the most challenging thing about Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps) will be the weather! It's very unpredictable. This year, it looks like it will be wet and quite cold. If it's wet or dry, we'll ensure the engine is working as expected and, in every corner at Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps), it correlates to what our drivers want. We're heading to three power sensitive circuits during this triple header. Esteban will have new engine parts added to his car from Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps). It's the same specification than his first engine, just brand new, as per the regulations on freezing engine spec development through to next season.


What are the main assessments from the first six races?

RT: After six races, the engine is behaving as expected. The level of drivability and performance is there and it's about getting the most out from it. The midfield is close and it's a matter of milliseconds to get into Q3. We can't let any milliseconds go aside and that's the work of our race team. The work done at the factory has been good so far with good reliability and performance. The race team is there to extract the final percentage from our package each race weekend, which is really important these days.


It's rewarding for the efforts we've put in last year and this year. We're back to the performance level we needed to achieve last year, and we've made sure to correct the gremlins we had at the first part of last season. The hard work is paying off this year. For the race team, especially, it's been very intense with the triple-headers. The turnaround has been challenging but they are doing exceptionally well.


Will there be some challenges with the latest technical directive on engine modes?

RT: On paper it won't be too difficult. We will adjust the ratio between qualifying and the race. The rules, so far, said we could run modes differently between qualifying and the race and, as always, we try to optimise the rules. Now the FIA has given us a new directive to be applied from Monza (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/13/monza) onwards, so we'll try to adapt, reoptimizing and validating the area where we need. It's the same work, just a different output. We'll have less power in qualifying, and more power in the race, so it's a new trade-off. We understand the concern of the FIA and we will work alongside them to achieve their request.

Belgian GP: Preview - Alfa RomeoEau Rouge and Raidillon, Pouhon and Blanchimont - the corners need no introduction. Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps)-Francorchamps is a place that embodies the passion and history of Formula One: true, the track may no longer snake for more than 14 kilometres in the Ardennes and names like Masta Kink and Burnenville have gone from our race weekend vocabulary, but there's still something that links the current drivers with the heroes that braved those streets in days of yore.



Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps) is magic. Still the longest track on the calendar, it's one circuit where the driver can make the difference. It's the track where Michael debuted and shone. It's where Mika passed him by going three-wide with a backmarker on the Kemmel straight, it's where Ayrton mastered the rain. It's where Kimi triumphed four times.


Like many other historical motorsport venues, and especially so for such a fearsome track, Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps) is also steeped in tragedy. It's the place that stole Stefan Bellof from a brilliant future in Formula One; it's where Chris Bristow and Alan Stacey passed away minutes - and a few hundred metres - from each other. It's where Anthoine Hubert's young rising star was cruelly taken from us last year.


Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps) helped write glorious and tragic pages of our sport but, as always, the pages we are most looking forward to are the ones yet to be written. Every time we get in the car here, we honour the many who did this before - those who came back with laurels and those who never returned. There will be hard days, there will be good days, but just to be racing on this hallowed ground is reason enough to smile.


Frederic Vasseur, Team Principal: "The week off gave us some time to regroup and get ready for the next triple header. It doesn't need saying that everyone in the team is working extremely hard to bring improvements to our car and to extract its full potential: nothing happens from a day to the other in this sport, however, so we have to be realistic about our expectations. We have to take this one step at the time, chipping away at the gap and continuing to push between now and the final race."


Kimi Raikkonen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/17/kimi-raikkonen): "Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps) is one of my favourite tracks and one where I have done well in the past, but previous form matters for very little in Formula One. Every year is a story on its own and we just have to focus on doing our job to the best of our capabilities. We need to keep working hard to close the gap with those in front of us. Everyone has to do their part, in the car and at the factory, to make the most of what we have."


Antonio Giovinazzi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/58/antonio-giovinazzi): "There are venues that are a part of Formula One history and Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps) is definitely one of them. When I was growing up, my idol was Michael Schumacher and he had a special relationship with this place, so when you first go out on track on Friday you cannot avoid thinking about all that history. Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps) is a great track to drive, full of challenging corners: it's a long layout and you want to keep a good flow throughout the lap."

Belgian GP: Preview - AlphaTauriPierre Gasly (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/53/pierre-gasly): "It was nice to have a couple of days off after the last triple-header of races. However, I was really upset to discover that my home in Normandy had been burgled while I was away. It was not a pleasant experience to realise people had been in your home and stolen a lot of personal items, of my family and mine.



"Anyway, back to the racing, I had a solid Spanish Grand Prix weekend and was very pleased to qualify seventh. The race didn't go quite as well as it could have, because I found myself in a long train of cars for a while. All the same, ninth means more points and even more important we were in the mix with some quick cars which should be a good sign for the coming races.


It still feels a bit strange in the paddock, but you begin to get used to it. It's true that we miss the atmosphere quite a bit that comes with having a crowd, and when you get to the track in the morning you are used to seeing all the fans and the ones asking for autographs. You feel the warmth of the crowd and it gives you a lot of energy. Unfortunately, for the moment, I believe it is still impossible to have them back and we just have to get used to it and adapt. I miss the interaction with the fans and I hope that might change before the end of the year.


"Once you're actually in the car, nothing has changed, because you don't think about it as you are concentrating so much on your performance and the result, so that in the end you forget about it. But when it comes to the time in between the sessions and when you leave the paddock, then it really hits you. It also affects your life in between the races. At the track, you are with the same people, I have the same engineers and my same trainer, but once I leave, it can be a bit boring as you cannot see people because you can't risk being exposed to Covid. Your social life is reduced and not so exciting, which is ok, because you have to be very careful. But I've got nothing to complain about, as I love my job.


"Now we come to Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps), Monza (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/13/monza) and Mugello together. It will be the third triple-header of the year. We were used to back-to-back pairs of races but this is quite different with nine races in eleven weeks. I think we will feel it a bit, although it is more intense for the engineers and mechanics. We're coming to some incredible circuits, with Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps) and Monza (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/13/monza). Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps) is my favourite track and racing through all those high-speed corners is a great thrill. I really enjoy driving it and have had great races there in the past. I had my first win in single-seaters there in Formula 4 and I also won the Feature Race in GP2 back in 2016.


"However, this year, returning to Belgium will also be a sad moment, because it is just one year ago that Anthoine (Hubert) lost his life after that terrible accident in the F2 race in Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps). I had known him since I was seven years old in karting, we were in the same school together organised by the French motorsport federation, from when I was 13 to 19 and we shared an apartment for six years. I think everyone in the paddock will take time to think of him."


Daniil Kvyat (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/32/daniil-kvyat): "The Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona) weekend was not the best from my point of view, so I am looking forward to getting back in the car as I think we can do well in the coming races. Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps) is always a cool track to race on. I like the layout, it's truly legendary and it has some of the most exciting corners of the year. Naturally, everyone talks about Eau Rouge, but the whole track is fantastic to drive and it's also good for the actual racing with plenty of excitement for the fans, or this year, just the viewers. The key to a good weekend at Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps) is finding the right set-up on Friday. Hopefully, we can read the track correctly and the car will work well. I've been relatively happy with the performance of the car so far this year, but we need to aim for a cleaner weekend than some of the ones we've had and then we can aim for stronger results.


"It's going to be cool to do these three races, Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps), Monza (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/13/monza), Mugello all one after the other, and I'm quite excited about this part of the season, to be honest. I love racing in Italy so I'm really happy about it! At Monza (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/13/monza), it's the usual story of finding the right balance between downforce for the corners and good straight-line speed. Again, it's all about getting it right on Friday. With Mugello, I have good memories of the track, particularly winning in Formula Renault (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/13/renault) many years ago. I enjoyed driving there, it's a very interesting track; I would even say one of the most impressive ones. I really like high-speed corners and Mugello has plenty of those. It should be something very special in a Formula 1 car. With the level of downforce we have now, it's going to be amazing to drive.


"This will be another triple-header and we're getting used to this new way of going racing. The main thing is that I enjoy driving the car, it's the best part of the job and that has not changed. Of course, the spectators and fans usually make the atmosphere very special and that's something we are missing. But for sure it will be back one day. In the meantime, with fewer activities to deal with outside the car at the track, I'm spending more time practising my guitar in the driver's room!"

Belgian GP: Preview - HaasFormula One usually travels to Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps)-Francorchamps for the Belgian Grand Prix after a period of rest and respite but in 2020 matters are of course a little different. There has been no summer recess this year and instead Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) F1 Team is gearing up for a fourth race in August, this time at the venerable Circuit de Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps)-Francorchamps.



Located in Belgium's picturesque Ardennes Forest, the circuit was born 99 years ago in 1921 when the triangle formed by the roads linking the villages of Francorchamps, Malmedy and Stavelot were used for a motorcycle race. Four-wheeled machines soon joined the scene and the Belgian Grand Prix was created, with its original fearsome 14km road circuit part of the inaugural Formula One world championship season in 1950.


The current track remains a favorite of Formula One drivers and stretches out over 7.004km across the undulating landscape, featuring fast and sweeping corners such as Pouhon, Blanchimont and of course the Eau Rouge/Raidillon complex, revered throughout the motorsport environment. It is the longest circuit on the calendar, 1.1km longer than Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone), and poses a set-up challenge for teams, with the throttle-heavy first and third sectors counterbalanced by a lengthy middle segment that incorporates medium- and high-speed turns. Teams also need to keep an eye on the sky: Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps)-Francorchamps' location within the Ardennes Forest means it is susceptible to changeable conditions, with showers known to strike some corners while others remain bone dry.


Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) F1 Team drivers Romain Grosjean (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/7/romain-grosjean) and Kevin Magnussen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/33/kevin-magnussen) have both gone well at Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps)-Francorchamps. Grosjean sealed the 2011 GP2 Series title at the track while a double victory in Formula Renault (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/13/renault) 3.5 in 2012/13 catapulted Magnussen towards Formula One. Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) F1 Team captured a double-point finish at the event in 2018, with Grosjean seventh and Magnussen eighth. Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) F1 Team is out in search of more points this weekend and beyond, after recently joining all existing outfits by pledging its commitment to Formula One's new Concorde Agreement.


Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) F1 Team committed to the new Concorde Agreement last week along with the nine other Formula One teams. Can you share what the decision-making process was behind Gene Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas)'s commitment to moving forward for another five years in the sport and what it means to both yourself and the team in general?

Guenther Steiner: "I guess Gene (Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas)) looked at it and Formula One's still a very good tool for getting his brand name, Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) Automation, out in the world. It works - otherwise he wouldn't be doing it. He loves the sport as well. Even if it is a big financial commitment, with the new regulations coming in, it should make the playing field more even and the commercial aspects better for the smaller teams - so as a result he has decided to continue. For me, it means - even at the moment when we're not running competitively, we've got a Formula One team which works, and that's more down to the team than to me. I'm part of the team though, we all work together, and in the end, Gene believes in the team. Everybody is, for sure, happy to be moving forward now with the agreement signed."


Does the signing of the Concorde Agreement and the new technical regulations coming in 2022 mark the boldest turning point in Formula One's storied history? Do all these measures add up to give an outfit like Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) F1 Team a truly competitive shot, both on and off track, in the sport?

GS: "The budget cap should level the playing field, it will level the playing field - just maybe not in the first year, but in the mid-term for sure. The payments, to make it more equal, will also mean the smaller teams get a little more revenue. It's never enough for the small teams by the way, but it levels the field and that should be the aim of a sport - any day, anybody can win. It'll take a while until that happens but for Formula One it's a big step in the right direction. Times change and I think Liberty did a great job in adapting to those times and making changes when it was needed. It was needed a few years ago, but it's better late than never."


With the Belgian Grand Prix usually marking the second half of a Formula One season - does it feel a little strange preparing to go there with only six races under the team's belt?

GS: "Everything seems strange this year. It feels like we've already done more than half a season of racing, but even if we've only raced six events, we've been working hard from March onwards. It's been a long season even if people don't see it given we only started racing in July. So, it definitely feels like we're over halfway, even if we're not. We just need to keep doing what we do."


After six races in seven weeks, and with a third Formula One triple-header starting this weekend in Belgium - how demanding, both physically and mentally, is this new-look 2020 calendar on the team? It's unprecedented in terms of the history of Formula One but could you see this becoming more normal as the series looks to add additional races in the future?

GS: "We have to treat this as an exceptional year. A lot of the staff did not work for much of the first half of the year, so they could fill their energy tanks up. So, I think it's a little bit lighter, but going forward, you cannot make this the normality. People cannot do this. We shouldn't try to do this because it's not productive."


With no plans for any upgrade packages coming this season, does that allow the team to better understand the core concept of the VF-20 and is that a benefit looking ahead to the 2021 season and the continuation of this car package?

GS: "That is the plan. We need to understand this car, the VF-20, and build on that. We can try to iron out the issues we have this year for a better 2021."


What was your first experience of racing a car at Circuit de Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps)-Francorchamps and how did you get on?

Romain Grosjean (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/7/romain-grosjean): "I think it was back in 2004 in a Formula Renault (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/13/renault) Eurocup race. There was something like 45 cars on the grid back then. I know we didn't qualify that well, and in those circumstances, Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps) always becomes an interesting race. When you see the circuit on TV, it's one of the few where you really see how up and down it actually is. But when you get there in real life, it really goes up and down. I think the maximum gradient of Eau Rouge is something like 20 percent. It's a big thing. In a faster car though, the better Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps) gets."


Describe the feeling of wheeling a Formula One car around Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps)-Francorchamps for the first time, picking up speed and testing the limits of the circuit. What stood out most on your debut there in a Formula One car?

RG: "Obviously, at Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps) it's all about the speed, you really see that. When you drive a Formula One car you go down Raidillon, reaching 300 kph before you go there then you feel like the wall's in front of you. The corners are very flowing through the middle part of the track, then you've got Pouhon, the double-left corner - which is absolutely mega. That's probably the best corner of the whole season. The low speed corners, the last turn and first turn, they're quite key for overtaking. The key is always finding the right balance between the flowing corners and those two low speed ones. Every year in Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps) though, when I go through Eau Rouge for the first time in the weekend, I feel sick. My stomach really goes up and down, but it goes away after the first timed lap. It's an amazing circuit."


You last stood on the Formula One podium at Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps) in the 2015 Belgian Grand Prix after a heroic drive in the troublesome Lotus E23. Where would that drive rank in your list of personal bests and is it extra special to savour a podium at such an historic circuit?

RG: "Yes, obviously it was a very good weekend for us - well, sort of a good weekend, there were a few issues outside of the track, but on track everything was good. From free practice the car worked really well, then I think I qualified fourth. In the race I came back from ninth, we had a gearbox penalty after quali. Everything worked to plan in the race. I could overtake the Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull), the Williams (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/11/williams) and we had a good level of drag versus grip. On that day it just felt easy - those are your best drives as everything just feels natural. Taking a podium at Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps) is always very special. Especially for me, I've had a bit of a hate-love relationship with Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps). Obviously, a lot of people remember the start in 2012, but I'd rather remember the 2015 podium."


Off track you keep yourself busy now, amongst other things, managing your own esports team? What led you down that path and what excites you the most about that side of the industry?

RG: "Well the lockdown and self-isolating this year pushed things forward. I really enjoy managing my esports team, finding the sponsors, talking to the drivers and looking at which races they're going to do. I also get involved in some of the races. It's time consuming and now that the season has started, I'm not as involved as I was early on, even though when I get home I do a bit of driving myself. I always keep an eye on the results and make sure our cars are good. I just think it's great that anyone in the world can drive against guys like Max Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen), Lando Norris (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/60/lando-norris) - they're on the games, as well as myself and so on. It's great fun. Yes, it's different from real racing, but it's also as close as it can get in terms of simulation. It's great that we get to chat with people, race against them, and things like Twitch make it easy to engage with people."


What was your first experience of racing a car at Circuit de Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps)-Francorchamps and how did you get on?

Kevin Magnussen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/33/kevin-magnussen): "I think it was a Formula Renault (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/13/renault) 2.0 Northern Eurocup race back in 2009 - I scored a couple of podiums and a fastest race lap."


Describe the feeling of wheeling a Formula One car around Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps)-Francorchamps for the first time, picking up speed and testing the limits of the circuit. What stood out most on your debut there in a Formula One car?

KM: "My first Formula One race there back in 2014, I was most looking forward to Eau Rouge. Back then we'd just got these new hybrid cars, it was the first year of this era, and the cars didn't really have that much downforce. Eau Rouge was actually a bit of a challenge back then, which was pretty cool. Usually, with these cars - and not that it doesn't feel good anymore, it's just less of a challenge in the bigger downforce cars. It's not such a technical part, but nonetheless, it's a mega part of the track. I think, and I could be wrong, that we could use DRS back then. You had to switch it off, then on again at the top. Nonetheless, it was a much bigger challenge back then. It's always a great experience racing around Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps) in Formula One, it's really one of those legendary tracks."


Your 2016 Belgian Grand Prix proved memorable unfortunately for your high impact lap six crash at the exit of Raidillon. As a race car driver do you simply put an incident like that behind you or does it enter your thoughts at all the next time you take to that particular circuit? How do you reboot and attack the track?

KM: "The 2016 race, well, unfortunately I just remember it for that crash. I lost the rear at the top of Raidillon and hit the wall on the outside - resulting in a massive crash. I put it behind me pretty easily, nothing really happened physically aside from a few bruises. I was fine the weekend after when we raced at Monza (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/13/monza). It wasn't really a big deal. A big crash but all was well afterwards."


After six races in seven weeks, and with a third Formula One triple-header starting in Belgium - how demanding, both physically and mentally, is this new-look 2020 calendar on you as a driver with so few opportunities for downtime?

KM: "Honestly, for me as a driver, I don't feel like it's a massive thing. Of course, it's busy and we're away a lot right now, and with all these triple-headers we don't really get to see our families, but we were all together for a few months during the lockdown. I missed racing, I missed Formula One hugely, so I've enjoyed being back like this with the intensity of all these races together. It's been good to be driving again and getting into racing. I feel worse for the mechanics as they work really, really long hours during the weekends. They then have to work on the cars between races as well. The engineers also work really hard. As drivers we have less to do. Yes, there's a lot of meetings and analyzing data, but we don't go to work every day. We show up at the weekends having had some meetings during the week. It's not as intense as it is for the rest of the team. We're very lucky in that sense, but of course, we then take the risks on track and all the rest, but I do feel worse for the team with this schedule."

Belgian GP: Preview - Racing PointSpa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps) is typically a firm favourite amongst the drivers. You must be looking forward to this one?



Lance Stroll (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/57/lance-stroll): "I am. It's a great track and traditionally it's been good for our car. A Formula 1 car really comes to life at Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps), just like it does at Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) or Suzuka (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/20/suzuka). You really get to feel the sensation of pushing a car to its limit and understanding what it can do at these kinds of circuits."


You have a link to Belgium through your family - does that make it more special?

LS: "It does. My mum is Belgian born, so there's some Belgian blood in me. It's always great to 'go back' to Belgium and hopefully I can get a strong result too. Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps) is always a highlight of the season for me and I can't wait to get out there."

How did it feel to have Checo back alongside you in Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona)?

LS: "It was great to see Checo back behind the wheel. We all missed having him around and we're happy he was able to recover so quickly. We push each other forward. You could definitely see that in qualifying and during the Grand Prix too. That's what you want from a team-mate."

Do you feel back in the groove again after returning to the track in Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona)?

Sergio Perez (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/13/sergio-perez): "It was a real challenge to come back last time out because it was a very demanding race physically with the heat and we had to carefully manage the tyres to make our one-stop strategy work. The team did a great job getting me up to speed again and now that I've done a race, I feel much more prepared for this weekend."


What are your expectations for Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps)?

SP: "We did a really good job last time out in turning our qualifying form into a strong race result and executing our strategy well too. We can take that momentum to Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps), target a lot of points and try to keep pushing in the Constructors' Championship."

You've got a strong track record at Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps). Does that give you more confidence for this weekend?

SP: "I'm quite proud of my record at Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps). I've finished in the top five there a few times, so it's definitely one of my stronger circuits. I'm enjoying driving the RP20 and it has performed strongly at different types of circuit this season. If we put everything together, we can fight for another strong result this weekend."

Belgian GP: Preview - WilliamsWith racing now fully underway the team prepares to head into its third triple-header starting in Belgium, before moving to two races in Italy at Monza (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/13/monza) and Mugello. The hill circuit is set in the Ardennes forest and is one the drivers' most loved tracks due a lot of changes in elevation, rewarding power and downforce that allows them to push their cars to the edge of their capabilities. It is the longest circuit on the Formula One calendar and with all this in mind is generally considered one of the most challenging. The weather in the Ardennes is notoriously tricky that can often lead to highly unpredictable races as it can sometimes be raining on one part of the track and dry on another.



Dave Robson, Head of Vehicle Performance: The third triple-header of the 2020 season will probably go down as one of the most breath-taking sequences of races in recent Formula One history. We begin at the famous Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps) circuit in Belgium before moving to the historic high-speed circuit in Monza (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/13/monza) and then, finally, to the epic Autodromo Internazionale del Mugello for the Tuscan Grand Prix. These venues each have their own varied characteristics and collectively will push the cars, drivers and engineers to the limit.


We begin in the Ardennes at the long, exciting Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps)-Francorchamps circuit. Trading downforce and drag to balance performance across the three sectors is key to success here, with S1 and S2 rewarding low drag but S2 containing a series of demanding corners that need high downforce. Teams will try different compromises and will watch what their competitors are doing before settling on a solution. Whilst finding the best aerodynamic package, we also need to concentrate on the tyres. This year, Pirelli bring a range of compounds that are a step softer than last year and this will influence both qualifying and race strategies. We will concentrate on getting the best out of the qualifying tyre for a single lap whilst also looking at the wear and degradation of all three potential race compounds.


The weather normally plays a part in the Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps) weekend, and this year is unlikely to be any different. Currently the outlook appears mixed, but nonetheless, we will be prepared for anything.


George Russell (https://www.pitpass.com/67766/drivers/66/george-russell): I am looking forward going back racing for the next triple header. On paper, Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps) may be a slightly harder circuit for us, due to the high efficiency of the track with the long straights and fast corners. However, we should have a few different components to try and see if that helps us. Nevertheless, it's going to be great going back to Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps). It looks like it is going to be varied weather conditions which should mix things up and we will be pushing as hard as always to make the most of what the weekend gives us.


Nicholas Latifi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/62/nicholas-latifi): It was good to have this last week and a half off to analyse everything from the last triple header and to recharge the batteries, but now I am super excited to get back behind the wheel. Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps) was one of the races that I was most looking forward to driving in Formula One this year, as it is so iconic, and with corners like Eau Rouge and Pouhon, it is the perfect track to drive an F1 car around. Hopefully we can be a bit more competitive than we were in the last race, the team has been doing a lot of work in the background, so I can't wait to hit the track and get into the next round of triple headers.

Belgian GP: Preview - PirelliFor the Belgian Grand Prix, Pirelli's C2 compound has been selected as the P Zero White hard, C3 as the P Zero Yellow medium, and C4 as the P Zero Red soft. This is a step softer than the nomination at Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps) last year.



This choice has been made because most drivers chose the medium and soft tyres last year. In fact, many drivers selected a full allocation of 10 soft tyres in 2019 and only one hard (although this will not be possible this year as all the allocations are standard: two sets of hard, three sets of medium, and eight sets of soft).


The weather in Belgium at this time of year is extremely variable. Although high temperatures have occasionally been seen at Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps) in the past, in the Ardennes we're unlikely to have the same sort of weather as Spain (last year's Belgian Grand Prix was run with track temperatures consistently below 30 degrees centigrade) - and rain is always a distinct possibility. It is even possible for it to be raining on one part of the track but dry on another. If it does rain, drainage is a common problem, with little rivers forming across the track that can cause aquaplaning. This is another reason why the tyres in the middle of the range have been selected.


This variation is also because the 7.004-kilometre lap - the longest in Formula 1 - is so extensive and mixed, with epic corners such as Eau Rouge imposing heavy combined forces on the tyres: both vertical and lateral. As a result, Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps) is one of the most challenging circuits for tyres seen all year. The asphalt is also quite aggressive in nature.


It is not just the corners that provide a big challenge: at nearly 800 metres long the Kemmel Straight cools the tyres down, affecting grip throughout the following corners.


Despite the imposing demands of Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps), it was largely a one-stop race last year, with the top three all using a soft-medium strategy (with a nomination that was a step harder). Three of the drivers in the top 10 stopped twice, while Renault (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/13/renault)'s Daniel Ricciardo (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/15/daniel-ricciardo) did practically the entire race on the medium after a very early stop.


Mario Isola: "The reputation of Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps) speaks for itself: it's an old-school track with plenty of elevation and other variables, which the drivers love because of the many challenges and sensations that it delivers. This year's tyre selection is a step softer than last year's, even though we expect the cars to be considerably faster, as has been the case for most of the season so far.


"Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps) is one of the few rounds this year that has not had a date change compared to its traditional slot, so the teams should have plenty of relevant data, even though this is probably the circuit where it's hardest to predict the conditions. So the teams and drivers who are best able to rapidly adapt to changing circumstances tend to be those most rewarded.


"One difference this year is that the Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps) 24 Hours hasn't taken place as usual a couple of weeks ago: it will be interesting to see if that has any effect - although any rubber that is previously laid down is often washed away by rain in any case.


"Finally, but most importantly, I am sure that Anthoine Hubert will be at the forefront of everybody's minds this weekend and we would all like to pay tribute to him, a year on from his passing."

Max VERSTAPPEN marca en mejor tiempo de la sesión. Tras él ha finalizado RICCIARDO, que no pudo completar la sesión debido a un problema hidráulico que le obligó a parar a mitad de una vuelta.

Los Mercedes han hecho distintos programas con HAMILTON utilizando el blando y el duro y BOTTAS el medio y el blando. Han terminado 3º y 6º. Entre ellos han finalizado ALBON y Checo PÉREZ.

Como los Mercedes, los pilotos de McLaren también han probado compuestos distintos; NORRIS, probando el blando y el duro ha terminado 7º mientras que SAINZ ha utilizado el blando y el medio y ha finalizado 9º, con OCON finalizando entre ambos.

En Ferrari siguen perdidos y hundidos en la clasificación, quedando incluso por detrás de los Alfa Romeo y no lo hicieron detrás de los HAAS porque no terminaron de cambiar las unidades de potencia de sus coches hasta tan solo 30 minutos del final de la sesión, por lo que no rodaron prácticamente.

Bienvenido, hernanperez. :hello:

A Vettel este año lo veo bastante descentrado. Creo que está muy desencantado de Ferrari y un coche que no está a la altura a la que debería y que encima no es muy de su gusto le están haciendo cometer más fallos de los habituales. Lo veo prácticamente imposible, pero ojala Ferrari encuentre algo que permita que el coche mejore y Vettel recupere algo de confianza, aunque me temo que solo quiere que acabe esta temporada ya.

Estaba claro que ibamos a ver varios homenajes a Anthoine Hubert pero sinceramente ayer vi algunas imágenes que me parecieron «excesivas», como las de Gasly rodeado de cámaras mientras depositaba un ramo de flores. Estoy segura de que es un momento duro para Gasly pero no sé, hacerlo tan «público» no me parece bien, aunque respeto que cada cual exprese su dolor como considere, eso sí, siempre respetando a la familia.

Sobre Correa, todavía le queda bastante para recuperarse. Esperemos que lo logre y que lo haga con las menores secuelas posible.

Impresiones de los equipos despues de las sesiones FP1/FP2:

Belgian GP: Practice team notes - MercedesValtteri set the fastest time in the morning session with Lewis in P2. Lewis finished the afternoon session in P3 with Valtteri in P6.



Today's programme focused on rear wing comparisons and understanding tyre performance on low and high fuel around Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps).


Lewis Hamilton (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/9/lewis-hamilton): It's generally been a good day - I love driving around this track, it's incredible.

Fortunately for us it was dry today, which gave us plenty of time to get a lot of running in and understand the car. It's very close out there between Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) and us; I think they might be a little bit quicker even at the moment. Racing Point (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/14/racing-point) are also looking strong, they're right with us as well and so was Daniel in the Renault (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/13/renault). It's really close with everyone and we have to understand why - whether they've taken a step forwards or we've taken a step backwards. So we've definitely got some work to do overnight, dig through the data and try and dial in the car a little more. But it looks like we've got an exciting weekend ahead of us.


Valtteri Bottas (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/3/valtteri-bottas): It's been a good birthday so far for me - I can definitely think of worse things to do on your birthday than driving this track. The first session was good, the second turned out to be a bit more tricky. It was nothing major, and I didn't get the laps quite right, but I think we might have to revert some set-up changes back to FP1. We were struggling with understeer all day and didn't really find a good solution for that. I think once the front end feels a bit stronger and I can get the car into the corners better, we'll find some lap time. Every year you come here, you think 'how can we possibly go faster than this around this track?' But then you come back a year later and it's faster still. The cornering speeds are so high, you feel the g forces - it's just great fun, I'm really enjoying it.


Andrew Shovlin: We've had new power units in both cars today and some updated bodywork. So far that all appears to be working as expected. The sessions were a bit messy, although it's always difficult with such a long circuit as you don't get many laps in each run. Both drivers have struggled a bit with the balance, mainly with a weak front end and we looked a bit slower than we normally do on a Friday even when the car seems to be working well. We've got a few areas that we are already looking into and hopefully we can make some progress for tomorrow. On the high fuel runs the midfield appears a bit closer than they did in previous races, so we can probably find a bit of time there. Looking at the forecast, there's a good chance of rain on Sunday, which would make this a very exciting race.

Belgian GP: Practice team notes - FerrariScuderia Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) did not enjoy the best of Fridays at the Belgian Grand Prix. The team struggled to get the tyres to work properly with both Charles Leclerc (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/61/charles-leclerc) and Sebastian Vettel (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/21/sebastian-vettel)'s cars and so the performance of the two SF1000s was considerably worse than expected, even if the team knew before taking to the track that
Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps)-Francorchamps would not be an easy track this year.



In the 90 minute morning session, the team focussed on fine tuning the car working with the Hard tyres.

Then, both drivers switched to the Soft tyre with which they set their best times: Charles stopped the clocks in 1:45.759, while Sebastian did a 1:46.179, good enough for 14th and 15th respectively on the time sheet. They completed 33 laps between them.


The afternoon session started on time, but with a damp track following a light shower, everyone stayed in the garages for the first 15 minutes. It did not delay the programme much and once the track had dried, Seb and Charles headed out to continue fine tuning the cars and evaluating tyres. This time, they opted for the Medium compound with Charles being quicker than Seb, the former doing a 1:46.030 and the latter 1:46.360. With 40 minutes remaining, they switched to the Softs to simulate qualifying but once again, they did not produce the desired results, with the SF1000 lacking grip on this compound. Charles did a 1:45.440, while Sebastian lapped around two and a half tenths slower in 1:45.683, only good enough for 15th and 17th places respectively. In the second session they completed 40 laps between them.


There is now plenty of data that will be analysed tonight to try and work out what did not work the way it should have done. Solutions arrived at by the engineers will then be tested in the third free practice session tomorrow at 12 CET. Then qualifying is next at 15, when it will be vital not to make the slightest mistake in order to get the best grid position possible. The Belgian Grand Prix starts on Sunday at 15.10.


Charles Leclerc (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/61/charles-leclerc): "It was a very difficult day. We are really struggling with the balance of the car. We tried quite a few things in the second session, including something quite aggressive in terms of downforce level but it didn't quite work out.


"It's probably a surprise to be so far back, but we are just lacking pace at the moment and have to work hard to catch up. But I'm not expecting any miracles this weekend. Our job as drivers is to give our best and that's what I am trying to do. It has happened before that we have been struggling on Friday and then come up with a solution on Saturday, so I hope this will be the case tomorrow."


Sebastian Vettel (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/21/sebastian-vettel): "It was a difficult day for us. The car was tricky and difficult to drive and we are not quite where we should be as we struggled with the balance. We are looking to find options for the set up and we tried something different.


"I am sure tomorrow will be a bit better, but we don't yet know what the weather will be like. We had a glimpse of wet conditions this year in Austria therefore we are aware it won't be the easiest thing to deal with, but it always provides a chance to mix things up, so let's wait and see what happens."

Belgian GP: Practice team notes - Red BullMax Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen): "The car seems to be handling well, it is of course early days but from our side it was a positive Friday and overall I'm pretty happy. A racing car is never perfect and you always try to find things on the car and with the tyre prep that you can improve, so we will be looking at that tonight. Personally, I think Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) are still struggling a bit with the balance and I expect them to be stronger tomorrow. You can see already that they are very competitive on the long runs and I don't think I will be fighting them for pole because we can't really follow when they turn it up in qualifying. If we can at least be a bit closer that would be good ahead of the race. It was important to get some decent dry running today, even if the conditions change over the weekend, so we can find a good baseline. It's never easy around Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps) to find the perfect downforce level and you can see everyone trying different things, but I think we are in a reasonable place and we will find out tomorrow exactly where that puts us."



Alex Albon: "It's been a promising day and I felt good with the car from the very first lap. It felt strong and the car is gelling better. The corner balance feels good and so I'm happy things are progressing the right way. I think it's actually helped a lot having that experience in the car from my first race with the team here last year as coming into this weekend I knew what we were going to do, what worked at this track and what didn't - having that experience is really beneficial. It's hard to say what everyone else is doing as it's practice and people are running different engine modes and fuel but you can see some people are targeting straight line speed more than others so let's see how tomorrow plays out. The times are surprisingly close and so we'll continue to fine tune the car and dial out what we can but it will be tight tomorrow."

Belgian GP: Practice team notes - RenaultRenault (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/13/renault) DP World F1 Team completed a productive day's practice at Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps)-Francorchamps today in preparation for this weekend's Belgian Grand Prix.



Daniel Ricciardo (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/15/daniel-ricciardo) ended the day second on the timesheets with team-mate Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon) eighth after competitive low fuel runs for both drivers in the afternoon session.


Esteban set the fastest overall Sector 1 time in Free Practice 2 with Daniel quickest of anybody in Sector 3.

Both practice sessions remained dry, though, there is a threat of rain for Saturday and Sunday.


Daniel and Esteban ran inside the top ten throughout the day as they progressed through their usual practice programme, which centred around finding the right downforce balance and assessing the tyres.

Daniel's day was cut short after a problem with his car during Free Practice 2, which the team is investigating.


It was a decent day's practice and that is backed up on the timesheets. We will assess our work overnight to make sure we're well prepared for qualifying.


Daniel Ricciardo (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/15/daniel-ricciardo): "It was another good FP2 as has been the case for us at the last few rounds. We have to
do it tomorrow, though, as that's when it counts. Today was strong, even with the issue at the end. For safety, we pulled the car over as there's no point taking risks with mechanical issues on Fridays. Our low fuel run was a good one. During the lap, I knew it felt good and sometimes you just know when the car's working. I knew it was competitive and I wasn't that surprised it was up there on the timesheets. It was a good day and we certainly understood a lot from it."


Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon): "Today was decent and we seem to be competitive as a team. We've made a good step from Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona) and I'm happy with today's running. There were lots of things we understood, which we'll aim to put into tomorrow and Sunday. It definitely looks promising for qualifying. It's always nice to see a purple sector next to your name and that shows we have the speed. The long runs are hard to read especially with the red flag. We might see some cars running high fuel in FP3 to make up for the lack of running."


Ciaron Pilbeam, Chief Race Engineer: "We're mostly happy with today's running. The morning session went smoothly and to plan. There was some rain before FP2, which meant most teams held back before going out on track but, by the time we went out, the track was completely dry, and it didn't have a significant effect on our overall run plan. Both drivers are reasonably happy with the car today. Daniel's Soft tyre run was competitive; however, we've seen that before on a Friday so I would say only that we are cautiously optimistic. Esteban was also happy with the balance on his car. Daniel's long run was going well but, after a couple of laps, the car stopped on track with a problem. That interrupted everyone's long runs, including Esteban's, but his run on Mediums looked consistent. We have everything we need to look at tonight to work on our qualifying and race strategy."

Belgian GP: Practice team notes - Racing PointSergio Perez (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/13/sergio-perez): "I felt really good in the car today and we can be happy with a positive Friday programme. I'm excited to go away tonight and see if we can find a few extra tenths in the car and fight for a strong starting position for the race - I think we've shown today we're certainly capable of that. We can be optimistic considering our pace in the short and long runs today. Like everyone else, the red flag late in FP2 means it's harder to figure out the pecking order, but I'm confident we're in a good place right now. We didn't get any truly wet conditions, so we'll have to see what tomorrow brings. I think we're better prepared for wet conditions than we were at the beginning of the season, so we're ready for whatever tomorrow brings."



Lance Stroll (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/57/lance-stroll): "It's been a good day and I'm happy with how the car feels - I just wasn't quite able to put together a clean and quick lap in FP2. But we've already shown that the pace was pretty good in FP1, so I'm happy with today's work. Checo was able to put together a strong programme, so we've got plenty of positives to take from today. I also think we've found a couple of small areas where we can make a few tweaks and find some improvements for tomorrow. I'm looking forward to trying to take a step forward in FP3 and then fighting for a good starting position inside the Top 10 for Sunday."

Belgian GP: Practice team notes - AlphaTauriPierre Gasly (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/53/pierre-gasly): "Another Friday finished and it was good to end the day in the top 10. However, at the moment I'm still not fully satisfied with the car balance and I have the feeling we haven't found the sweet spot yet. I think we have a bit of work to do tonight to find more performance because I'm sure we can do even better. We'll analyse everything and try to make the right changes to take the fight for the top 10 this weekend."



Daniil Kvyat (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/32/daniil-kvyat): "I think it was an OK Friday, we ran the usual procedures and did as many laps as possible today. We were able to get the car in a decent place straight away, so we will put in some good work overnight to make the balance better for tomorrow. Hopefully, it will put us in a good position to fight for Q3 in Qualifying."


Jonathan Eddolls (Chief Race Engineer): "Coming to Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps), we faced the usual uncertainties around the weather as the forecast was changing daily with a mix of rain, overcast and sunshine. This made planning for the weekend more difficult when it came to rear wing level and downforce choice because when the track's dry, it favours one level, but when it's wet it favours something completely different. We built that into our plans and the weather today has been good with no rain affecting the sessions, so we could run a completely dry programme to gather a lot of useful data.


"FP1 was quite a productive session, the performance was in line with expectations, particularly over the short run, and our top speed was looking competitive. We lost a bit of time with Pierre's car due to some damage to his floor after having hit a kerb, which was unfortunate, so he didn't get all of the running that we would have liked in that session. You can run a car quite low and aggressive here, but the downside is that if you run a bit wide you can cause quite a bit of damage. While this cost him some time, we were still quite positive at the end of FP1.


"We made some changes heading into FP2, but the balance went to more understeer for us, which wasn't ideal, and I think overall, we didn't quite show the competitiveness in FP2 that we hoped to, so we will look to make some changes tomorrow to help with the balance. Our long runs weren't as clean as we would have liked as there was a VSC and a red flag.


"With Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps) having such a long lap, it means if there's an interruption on track, the number of laps you get on each tyre is reduced and this makes it a bit more difficult in understanding the compounds in preparation for Sunday. However, we have information on all three compounds now, and we'll complete our analysis with the view of making the best choice for tyres and downforce level heading into tomorrow and the race."

Belgian GP: Practice team notes - Alfa RomeoA dry day in Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps) is somewhat of a rarity, but precipitation held off on the Ardennes on Friday, letting teams go on with their work during the first day of on-track action. It wasn't the most straightforward day for Alfa Romeo (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/15/alfa-romeo) Racing ORLEN, a small issue with Antonio's power unit keeping car #99 marooned in the garage for the first session; it was, however, a productive day nonetheless, with the team manging to adapt the afternoon programme to catch up on lost time.



Placement in the low teens for both sessions is a good sign, although Fridays are never a solid indication of what the rest of the weekend harbours. The objective remains the same - making progress to be able to fight for a place in the top ten come Sunday. There's no silver bullet, but a time-honoured recipe for it: lots of hard work, an evening spent crunching numbers and the need to put together a good lap in qualifying - no small feat on a circuit like Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps)-Francorchamps...

Kimi Raikkonen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/17/kimi-raikkonen): "It has been a relatively straightforward Friday for me. As always, there are still many things to improve but the feeling is that if we put everything together, we can be a bit more competitive. It's still very early in the day, we need to build on what we did today and see where we are tomorrow when it matters."


Antonio Giovinazzi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/58/antonio-giovinazzi): "Missing out on FP1 was not ideal, but we made good progress in the afternoon so we made up some of the ground we missed. I felt good in the car and, when you do, everything becomes easier, so I am happy now. Hopefully we can find some more performance tonight and see where we stand tomorrow. The weather is still a big question mark for the race, but for now our focus is firmly set on qualifying. My target is to make it to Q2 for the first time in the season."

Belgian GP: Practice team notes - HaasThe seventh round of the 2020 FIA Formula One World Championship began with practice Friday at Circuit de Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps)-Francorchamps as teams prepared for Sunday's Belgian Grand Prix.



Two 90-minute sessions - FP1 and FP2 - were run under mostly cloudy skies on the 7.004-kilometer (4.352-mile), 19-turn circuit.


FP1 started in the worst possible way for Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) F1 Team drivers Romain Grosjean (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/7/romain-grosjean) and Kevin Magnussen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/33/kevin-magnussen) with both VF-20's forced into early retirement with unrelated power unit issues. Magnussen was out with just his install lap to his credit while Grosjean had started his wake-up run when he encountered a loss of power out on-track and returned to the garage. Neither driver set a timed lap with both cars subsequently requiring a power unit replacement.


Each car crew worked feverishly enabling Magnussen, who was first to hit the track, and Grosjean to join FP2 with just over 30 minutes left in the afternoon session. Both drivers banked some bedding in laps on the Pirelli P Zero Red soft tires on low fuel. Grosjean's best lap was a 1:45.834 - placing him P19. Magnussen lapped in 1:46.242 for P20. With the clock winding down and following a short red-flag stoppage for debris at the first turn, a handful of high fuel laps brought a frustrating day to a close.

Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) F1 Team was limited to a total of just 27 laps on Friday - 14 by Grosjean and 13 by Magnussen.


Romain Grosjean (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/7/romain-grosjean): "It was a tough day for everyone, especially the mechanics. Going out in the morning, then having to straight away change the engine - that's not ideal, especially with both cars and at Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps) where you really want to get laps and knowledge. We at least managed to get out in the afternoon - the boys did a mega job. The car didn't feel too bad. We're obviously not at the top of the timesheets, but that's understandable after doing just one timed lap on a one lap tire. Being two tenths away from Vettel after having only done one lap, it's not bad. The car actually felt good, so that's nice, but we'll pay the price for the straight line here. I believe we'll be in the fight for 15th to 20th - I just don't really see much more, but I hope I'm wrong."


Kevin Magnussen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/33/kevin-magnussen): "It wasn't the ideal day. We didn't get out in FP1, then because we had to change the power unit, we were also delayed in FP2. Not a great start to the weekend but of course we'll try and make up for it tomorrow. The car didn't feel too bad, you only really get one lap on the C4 soft tire - and that's your first flying lap. It'll come though. We'll see where we are tomorrow. Hopefully we'll get on top of the pace. You can't just go into your first lap and be right on the pace. There's a lot of lap time missing from us just getting up to pace. If it rains tomorrow though it doesn't give any value to the experience anyone else gained today, so maybe fingers crossed for that."


Guenther Steiner: "It's been a very disappointing day today. We didn't do any laps in FP1, other than the installation laps, because of both engine failures. The only good thing from today is that the guys did a fantastic job to get the cars together again. We at least got back out in the afternoon to find some kind of balance on the car, that's what we achieved. We just need to get the best out of tomorrow's one-hour practice session. Again, I just want to say a big thank you to the guys - they kept on working hard to get us back out there."

Belgian GP: Practice team notes - WilliamsDave Robson, Head of Vehicle Performance: Both drivers had solid days as we looked at some downforce configurations and general set-up. We had no issues with the cars, and we are now in a good position to push things along tomorrow. Although today was dry for the F1 sessions, the forecast for tomorrow and Sunday remains mixed and we will need to be alive to any rain during qualifying and the race.



The cars are running well, and the drivers are enjoying each lap of this great circuit. We need to find a bit more pace if we are to compete with Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) and Alfa Romeo (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/15/alfa-romeo) tomorrow, but we have a good baseline on which to build that performance.


George Russell (https://www.pitpass.com/67801/drivers/66/george-russell): It is always great to drive around Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps). We tried some different set-ups to try and get a bit more straight-line speed. Some were more beneficial than others, but I think we have a good understanding to gather the data and make the most of it tomorrow. It is going to be a tricky Saturday, Q2 is still the target and beating the Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) and the Alfa. We would like to see some rain to mix things up which would give us a chance to get a good result if we can maximise it. Nevertheless, we have got to make the most of whatever the conditions throw at us, and I will be ready to do that.


Nicholas Latifi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/62/nicholas-latifi): It was an average day and there are some things we have to work on. We don't have a true reference to the Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) from their missed running in FP1, so they were always going to be on the back foot.


We definitely seem to be struggling a bit more to the Alfa, we knew it was going to be a weaker track for us because of the efficiency of the circuit that is all dependent on straight line speed. There are some things to work on but it wasn't a bad day overall. It would be nice to have some mixed conditions in either qualifying or the race to create a bit of a challenge. I see that as a positive for us and something that we will try to capitalise on. However, even if its dry we will be able to make some gains tomorrow.

Belgian GP: Practice team notes - PirelliMercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) was fastest in the morning session courtesy of Valtteri Bottas (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/3/valtteri-bottas), while Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) and Max Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen) were quickest of all in the afternoon: seven-tenths of a second faster than Bottas's FP1 time. In both free practice sessions, the P Zero Red soft compound was used to set the best time.



Conditions were cool all day, with some drops of rain as well: although not during any of the Formula 1 sessions. These cool and humid conditions, typical of Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps), are expected to remain for the rest of the weekend.


All three compounds were sampled during free practice, with each set to play a valid role in the race strategy on Sunday.


Other stand-out performances in FP2 include Daniel Ricciardo (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/15/daniel-ricciardo), who was second for Renault (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/13/renault), just behind Verstappen, and Alex Albon - fourth in the other Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull).


Mario Isola: "With a softer compound choice here compared to last year, the work today mainly consisted of assessing the performance of the soft, to see how it could fit into the overall race strategy. With Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps) being the longest lap of the year, the differences between the compounds are magnified and the difficulty of putting together a perfect lap increases. Conditions today were tricky but quite normal for Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps), with ambient temperatures consistently under 20 degrees centigrade and a track made slippery by some light rainfall, but all three compounds still offered performance in line with expectations and this weather seems set to be representative of the rest of the weekend. We're seeing a bigger time gap between the medium and soft compounds than anticipated so far, which will clearly have an effect on qualifying strategies tomorrow - making it harder to get through Q2 on the medium."

Resultados FP3
Sábado, 29 de agosto de 2020


El más rápido de esta sesión ha sido Lewis HAMILTON, una sesión en la que una ligera lluvia en momentos puntuales y en sitios puntuales del circuito, ha hecho que los coches no rodaran demasiado.

OCON, NORRIS y ALBON han sido los pilotos que han terminado tras Hamilton separados por medio segundo.

Carlos SAINZ ha finalizado 9º, entre los Racing Point de STROLL y Checo PÉREZ.

Desastre de los equipos motorizados por Ferrari, que han terminado en las últimas posiciones con tan solo RUSSELL entre ellos.

Doloroso ver a VETTEL cerrando la clasificación a más de 2 segundos de Hamilton y con LECLERC en 17ª posición. Si no cambian algo, hasta les va a costar pasar a Q2.

Hamilton, Bottas y Verstappen han sido los más rápidos en la Q1. Sainz pasa el corte en 8ª posición.

Los Ferrari han logrado pasar el corte en su último intento. Vettel ha terminado 13º y Leclerc ha estado cerquita de no pasar al finalizar 15º. Han tenido que hacer uso de los rebufos para poder pasar a Q2.

Russell vuelve a poner a su Williams en Q2.

No hay sorpresa entre los eliminados, aunque da pena ver a Kimi fuera con lo bien que se le da este circuito.

Los eliminados en Q1 son:

17 Grosjean
18 Giovinazzi
19 Latifi

Carlos ha terminado 5º. Norris pasa también el corte pero por sólo 8 milésimas con respecto a Kvyat, que ha sido el primero de los eliminados.

Como era de esperar, ninguno de los Ferrari ha pasado el corte. Se han quedado a un segundo del tiempo de Hamilton, y eso que ellos han marcado su tiempo con el blando y Lewis con el medio.

Resultados Sesión de CALIFICACIÓN
Sábado, 29 de agosto de 2020


Lewis HAMILTON sigue mostrando su dominio y se lleva su sexta pole en el circuito de Spa-Francorchamps. Una pole que deja el récord del circuito en un crono de [b]1:41.252/b].

A medio segundo ha terminado BOTTAS, en lo que es una nueva primera línea para Mercedes.

De nuevo, en tercera posición ha terminado VERSTAPPEN, que se ha quedado a solo 15 milésimas de Bottas. Los tres serán los únicos pilotos de entre los 10 primeros que tomarán la salida con neumático medio por el blando del resto.

Max tendrá mañana a su lado a RICCIARDO, que ha vuelto ha hacer una gran clasificación.

Tras ellos saldrán sus compañeros, con ALBON en la 5ª posición y OCON en la 6ª.

En la misma décima que Ocon ha finalizado Carlos SAINZ, que mañana partirá desde la 7ª plaza. Carlos ha comentado que han reglado el coche 100% para seco porque no esperan lluvia durante la carrera aunque dice que no le importaría que lloviera.

Extraño ver a los Racing Point tan atrás, ya no solo por cómo están yendo este año sino porque aquí el antiguo Force India siempre ha ido muy bien. Parece que al hacer su copia, han «borrado» del coche lo que les favorecía en este circuito. Mañana CHECO saldrá 8º y STROLL 9º.

En 10ª posición saldrá NORRIS, al que no se le ha visto muy cómodo.

Las siguientes líneas estarán ocupadas por los AlphaTauri de KVYAT y GASLY y los Ferrari de LECLERC y VETTEL, que finalmente lograron pasar a Q2 aunque sin mucho margen. Mucho tienen que trabajar los de Maranello.

Tras ellos saldrá RUSSELL y el resto de pilotos con motor Ferrari y LATIFI, que partirá penúltimo.

Em amplo domínio, Lewis Hamilton conquista pole em Spa-francorchamps pela 6ªVezLewis Hamilton sobrou na turma hoje em Spa, na sessão de classificação de agora a pouco, o piloto inglês mostrou sua força e conquistou sua 93ªpole da carreira. Sobrou em relação até mesmo ao seu companheiro de equipe Valtteri Bottas, que teve muita dificuldade para ficar com a segunda posição, a 15 milésimos de frente para Max Verstappen.
http://portalsportszone.com.br/wp-content/uploads/2020/08/F1_Belgica_sabado2020-15.jpgSe a classificação foi incrível para Hamilton, para os pilotos da Ferrari acabou sendo um pesadelo. Ou melhor, para todos os pilotos que usam os fraquíssimos motores Ferrari, Grosjean e Magnussen foram os primeiros a entrarem na pista e viraram muito mal, a equipe norte-americana teve problemas na sexta-feira, que impediram os pilotos de andarem. Tanto Grosjean como Magnussen foram facilmente superados pelos outros pilotos.
Na primeira volta, Hamilton com 1:42.323 e Bottas com 1:42.554 sobraram em relação aos outros. A surpresa positiva era Daniel Ricciardo na terceira posição. Na metade da classificação, Leclerc vinha na 14ªposição e Vettel em uma terrível 18ªposição. Ele estava eliminado junto de Latifi, Raikkonen, Grosjean e Magnussen.
http://portalsportszone.com.br/wp-content/uploads/2020/08/F1_Belgica_sabado2020-21-1024x576.jpgPraticamente todos os pilotos foram para a última volta, Leclerc precisava fazer um tempo que garantisse seu carro no Q2, no que ele não consegue. Vettel já foi mais feliz e se colocou um pouquinho mais a frente.
http://portalsportszone.com.br/wp-content/uploads/2020/08/F1_Belgica_sabado2020-17-1024x683.jpgFelizmente a Ferrari conseguiu na bacia das almas levar seus carros para o Q2. Kimi Raikkonen (Vencedor de 4 corridas em Spa), Romain Grosjean, Antonio Giovinazzi, Nicholas Latifi e Kevin Magnussen acabaram eliminados.

Logo que começou o Q2, Lewis Hamilton e Valtteri Bottas entraram na pista e comprindo o manta da equipe em 2020. Seu dois pilotos fizeram os 5 melhores tempos, com Lewis na frente de Valtteri, por 112 milésimos. O resto brigava pelo 3ºlugar, Max Verstappen ficou na frente de Daniel Ricciardo por milésimos de segundo, mas a se falar do ótimo desempenho da Renault em Spa-francorchamps.
http://portalsportszone.com.br/wp-content/uploads/2020/08/F1_Belgica_sabado2020-5-1024x683.jpgOs pneus médios funcionaram com a Mercedes e Red Bull, mas não com a Racing Point que ao final da primeira volta ambos estariam de fora do Q3. Lembrando que o pneu da melhor volta no Q2 seria o pneu que o piloto vai largar. Um pneu médio na largada daria uma vantagem no decorrer das voltas para quem largasse nas primeiras posições. Isso as duas melhores equipes na temporada conseguiram.
Já a Ferrari vinha em um final de semana bem ruim, já na primeira volta de Vettel e Leclerc dava para ver que nenhum dos dois teria qualquer chance de passar para o Q3. O mesmo acontecia com George Russell com a Williams.
http://portalsportszone.com.br/wp-content/uploads/2020/08/F1_Belgica_sabado2020-9-1024x576.jpgNos últimos minutos, todo mundo vai para a pista, com exceção de Daniel Ricciardo que fica nos boxes e coloca sua classificação em risco, mas acabou não chegando a correr grandes riscos. Com os pneus macios, tanto Perez como Stroll se classificaram com facilidade para o Q3. Alexander Albon ficou com bela volta, ficando na 3ªposição. Atrás de Hamilton e Bottas e na frente de Verstappen. Além desses quarto, os pilotos da Renault, Mclaren e Racing Point classificaram para o Q3.
http://portalsportszone.com.br/wp-content/uploads/2020/08/F1_Belgica_sabado2020-18-1024x683.jpgFicaram de fora do Q2: Danill Kvyat e Pierre Gasly da Alpha Tauri (Primeira classificação que o russo ficou a frente do piloto francês), Depois Charles Leclerc e Sebastian Vettel, que vão dividir a 7ªfila com a problemática Ferrari e George Russell da Williams.

No Q3, parte final da classificação não teve para ninguém. Lewis Hamilton foi impecável, logo na sua primeira volta, o inglês colocou quase 6 décimos a frente de Valtteri Bottas, que ficou a poucos milésimos a frente de Daniel Ricciardo e Max Verstappen. O finlandês teve de corrigir o carro por duas vezes. Albon, Sainz, Ocon, Perez, Stroll e Norris completavam os 10 primeiros colocados.
http://portalsportszone.com.br/wp-content/uploads/2020/08/F1_Belgica_sabado2020-6-1024x683.jpgNos últimos minutos, Hamilton e Bottas foram os primeiros a entrarem, seguidos dos dois pilotos da Red Bull e depois os pilotos da Mclaren e Renault. Os dois pilotos da Racing Point acabaram não saindo para a pista.
http://portalsportszone.com.br/wp-content/uploads/2020/08/F1_Belgica_sabado2020-2-1024x683.jpgLewis Hamilton novamente deu um Show, e com o tempo de 1:41.252 acabou marcando a 93ªpole position da carreira na Formula 1. O inglês colocou mais de meio segundo de frente para Valtteri Bottas, que teve muita dificuldade para completar a dobradinha na primeira fila. Apenas 15 milésimos a frente de Max Verstappen. O piloto Holandês lamentou por não ter largado na segunda posição pelo rádio. O piloto da Red Bull é o único que consegue lutar contra os pilotos da Mercedes até agora nessa temporada.

Impresiones de los equipos después de la sesión de Clasificación:

Belgian GP: Qualifying team notes - MercedesLewis claimed his 93rd pole position in Formula One - his fifth of the 2020 F1 season and sixth at the Belgian Grand Prix. Valtteri will start tomorrow's race from P2, his first ever start from the front row in Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps).



Today's result marks the 14th pole position at the Belgian Grand Prix for Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes)-Benz Power, equalling Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) as engine manufacturer for most poles at this race.


Both drivers will start the 2020 Belgian Grand Prix on the Medium tyres.


Lewis Hamilton (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/9/lewis-hamilton): I feel incredibly blessed to be able to take pole on a day like this. I woke up this morning to the terrible news about Chadwick Boseman. What a humble man he was, portraying these iconic black figures. As a kid I wanted to be Superman, and it's so important today for young black people to have a superhero to look up to, who looks just like them. It's really not easy to perform at your best when you have something weighing on your heart, and to be truthful it was so difficult to shake off that negativity and channel it into something exceptional, but Chadwick showed that was possible. I've done a lot of laps in my F1 career, but those two laps in Q3 were almost perfect. You can't see my face under my helmet out there, but I was smiling, this track is just incredible and I was totally on the limit. We decided to go out early and run in the clean air as it's so easy to make a mess of the tow if you get blocked or there's a yellow flag and we definitely made the right call. We've got a big race still to come tomorrow and the Red Bulls looked good on the long-runs on Friday, but today it was an honour to be able to dedicate that pole to Chadwick because he inspired me. My prayers and thoughts are with his family.


Valtteri Bottas (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/3/valtteri-bottas): I'm quite happy with Qualifying, my lap felt good today, especially the second run in Q3. I don't think I made any mistakes in that run, so I'm not sure where the delta to Lewis came from, I'll have to look at the data. But I'm actually not too bothered about missing pole, as starting second or third can be an advantage in Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps). We've seen it before that with a tow on the first lap you can overtake the leader going into Turn 5. I hope there's plenty of opportunity tomorrow to try and fight for a good result and I'm looking forward to an exciting race.


Toto Wolff: It's always good to qualify on the first row in Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps), which is a real drivers' circuit. We didn't really have a super smooth weekend so far; it was challenging to find the right set-up in Free Practice sessions, particularly in the low-speed corners. We still saw that pattern to a small degree in Qualifying, but much less so than before. I'm really interested to see how the race is going to pan out tomorrow, especially the first laps should be exciting. Riccardo has shown tremendous straight-line speed today, so he will be strong in the run up to Turn 5 tomorrow. Verstappen was very strong in the long runs yesterday, so I'm sure he will be in the fight as well. I'm looking forward to an exciting race - new game, new chance.


Andrew Shovlin: It was a bit closer at the front than it's been at the previous races this year. We're clearly running a bit more downforce than the Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) and losing a couple of tenths to them on both the long straights but we're quite a bit faster in the corners and ended up nicely ahead. Lewis put together a very good lap; Valtteri was struggling a bit in some of the braking zones and lost a bit of time there, but it's great that he's on the front row as well. The midfield is also very close behind which should make the race quite open. We expect the run to Turn 5 to be pretty exciting; it's difficult enough to hold the lead here but given that Max is a bit quicker and Daniel looks to have about 8kph on us, so it could get end up getting quite crowded towards the end of the straight. It's normally a fun race though and there's also a risk of rain to factor in.

Belgian GP: Qualifying team notes - FerrariScuderia Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) expected a difficult Saturday at the 65th Belgian Grand Prix and so it was. Having struggled all weekend to get the tyres of their SF1000 into the right operating window, Charles Leclerc (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/61/charles-leclerc) and Sebastian Vettel (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/21/sebastian-vettel) failed to make the cut out of Q2 and will therefore start from the seventh row of the grid tomorrow when the five lights go out above the Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps)-Francorchamps start line.



Both drivers started qualifying on the Soft tyres: Charles did a 1:44.228 on his first run, while Seb did a 1:44.554.

Neither driver was safe to make the cut and so the team sent them both out again on another set of new Softs. Leclerc was first on the road with no one to slipstream and managed to get down to 1:43.656. Vettel benefited from tucking in behind other cars to set a 1:43.567, good enough for both to get through to Q2.


Both drivers had two sets of new Softs each for this phase. Leclerc's first run produced a 1:43.959 and Vettel did a 1:43.693. On their second sets, Charles found another nine tenths to do a 1:42.996, good enough for 13th, just 266 thousandths away from a place in the top ten shoot out. Seb improved his time by almost half a second to 1:43.261, which put him 14th.


Charles and Seb have a free choice of tyre for the start of the race tomorrow and that opens up various strategy options when compared to most of their competitors. The weather could also play its part given that rain is expected at some point during the race in the Ardennes.


Charles Leclerc (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/61/charles-leclerc): "I think my final was ok and that P13 and P14 was the best we could do today. We managed to improve the car balance since yesterday, but unfortunately we didn't find the performance we were hoping for there.


"The race will be tough but I'm always optimistic. Hopefully, with a strong start, the right strategy, and good tyre management, we will be able to fight for some points.

These are tough times for all of us, including everyone who is supporting us watching from home, and I will give my all to bring home the best possible result tomorrow for them. It's important for everyone in our team to keep their heads up and stay motivated. Together we will work hard to find the cause of the issue we are having and address it."


Sebastian Vettel (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/21/sebastian-vettel): "We need to stay strong and keep doing what we are doing as we knew this would be a tough weekend for us. We lose quite a bit on the straights and this circuit has a lot of straights. We are also struggling to get the tyres working properly. However the race is long so you never know what might happen.


"In the end I think today's result reflects our real level on a track like this. We are ready to do battle tomorrow, I don't think the rain can change a lot but for sure we will be trying anything, also on strategy, to bring home some points."


Laurent Mekies Sporting Director: "A very difficult qualifying with neither driver making it to Q3. This follows on from an even more difficult Friday, when we never managed to get the tyres to work properly. With very little grip, Charles,

Sebastian and the team did what they could, turning the setup on its head to try and at least to get back to the performance level we had seen in previous races.


"Thanks to a lot of hard work from everyone, today was better than yesterday, but it was not enough to fight with our usual competitors. We also went for an aero setup aimed at tomorrow's race, when the rain could be a factor.


"Tomorrow we will do all we can and then work on finding out why we never managed to get our package working properly, right from the first free practice session."

Belgian GP: Qualifying team notes - Red BullMax Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen): "Overall, it's been a really positive weekend so far, we came here and thought it was going to be really tricky for us and actually to be that close to Valtteri and in P3 is a good result. The lap was decent and of course I always look at the fastest car and we are half a second down but I think it is the closest we have been to Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) in qualifying this year. For us on this track, that is not normally our type of qualifying track, I think we can all be very happy with the result and now I'm looking forward to the race. I don't think we prefer a wet or dry race but a change in weather during the race would spice things up. This track is amazing to drive in qualifying and already very exciting in the race, but if the weather comes into play a bit like last year at Hockenheim then it could be very special. I'm happy with the balance of the car and we have made a good step. Now we need to hope for a good start and then we can push Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) hard and maximise our result again."



Alex Albon: "I'm happy with P5 and it's all to play for tomorrow. I think P4 was possible but I made a small mistake into Turn One on my final run which cost me some time otherwise I think we could have been there. My best lap was actually in Q2 so there are little bits for me to improve on but I'm happy. It's been a much smoother weekend and the car felt good straightaway from the start of FP1 and it hasn't changed much since. We've been chipping away, fine tuning it, and it's been a positive weekend. I think there's been a step forward on my side too which hopefully we can take forwards. We're on a different strategy to Max and start tomorrow's race on the soft compound. The start is obviously important here with such a short run to Turn One so we'll be looking for a good and clean getaway. After that, we'll see but with the possibility of rain it should be an exciting race."


Christian Horner: "There was some great teamwork by the drivers today and they delivered a strong result for the Team. Third and fifth, so close to the front row, with Max just a hundredth off Valtteri gives us confidence at a track we know you can overtake at. Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) have got that advantage in qualifying but to be so close on a long track that has not been a favourite of ours marks a good Saturday. We have a slightly different strategy between the two cars with Max starting on the medium tyre and Alex on the soft, but that gives us options and of course we don't know what to expect from the Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps) weather. There could be some mixed conditions and we don't know what the tyre degradation will be like so there are always opportunities. It will be hard to attack the Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) but with Max we have a real fighter of a driver and it's great to have Alex up there as well."

Belgian GP: Qualifying team notes - RenaultRenault (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/13/renault) DP World F1 Team will line up with both cars inside the top six as Daniel Ricciardo (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/15/daniel-ricciardo) and Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon) produced a strong qualifying display at Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps)-Francorchamps for the Belgian Grand Prix.



Daniel will join Max Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen) on the second row of the grid with Esteban lining up alongside the second Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) car of Alex Albon on row three for tomorrow's 44-lap race.


Both drivers were in good single-lap form on Saturday, easing through Q1 on one run, which meant they saved a set of Soft tyres for Q3.


Daniel progressed through Q2 on one run with Esteban's first effort also good enough for the top ten, despite not finding improvement on his second run.


In Q3, Daniel's first lap put him in third place, 0.6secs off the lead with Esteban in seventh. Daniel had to abort his second run, to finish fourth, while Esteban found improvement to jump to sixth place.


Daniel Ricciardo (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/15/daniel-ricciardo): "I'm very happy with today's qualifying. It was so close to the top three, but Max got me by a couple of tenths at the end. My lap was clean and probably as good as it was going to get. I left it all out there and the second row is a big reward. The car works well in lower downforce and that was the same last year. Tomorrow looks interesting.

We have good pace in the dry, but if it's wet, we've shown in the past we're not bad either. If it rains, it creates more opportunities, so whatever the conditions, we'll take it and aim to do the best possible job."


Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon): "It's been pretty good all weekend and we've certainly looked strong with the car handling a lot better than the past couple of races. All the changes we made coming into this race has given us confidence and we've seen it's working well on track. It feels good, so I'm happy. We have a great chance to fight tomorrow. There is a chance of rain, so that could be interesting, and we'll give our best for a good team result."


Alan Permane, Sporting Director: "It was a very good qualifying session for us today, with Daniel finishing fourth and Esteban sixth. Both cars are working well and have been nicely balanced since the first runs of Friday. Looking ahead to the race tomorrow, there is more of a threat of rain than the past couple of days, but we feel confident in all conditions. We can have a very strong race and bring a good points haul home for the team."

Belgian GP: Qualifying team notes - AlphaTauriDaniil Kvyat (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/32/daniil-kvyat): "I had strong laps all through Qualifying and I've been feeling better and better with the car since yesterday. We made steps in the right direction with my engineering crew, so I'm happy with the progress we've made, especially from Friday to Saturday. I think we have a good chance to have a strong race tomorrow, so we'll do our best to make it happen. It will be a long one and, as it often happens in Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps), the weather can play a part. If it rains it could definitely spice up the race, so we need to stay on top of our game in these conditions, as many things can happen and we need to be there to take advantage."



Pierre Gasly (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/53/pierre-gasly): "I would have liked to make it to Q3 as there were only four one-hundredths of a second to Norris in P10.

I didn't nail the last chicane and had a poor exit, I tried to give it a bit more and lost traction which cost me a tenth. Still, we have a free tyre choice and we will fight from there. I would like it to rain tomorrow - I come from Normandy so we have rain pretty much every single day! We have a decent starting position in P12 and anything is possible from there, it's super tight in the midfield as always, so I'll push as hard as I can and hopefully we can get a few points. Actually, it's ideal to start P11 and P12 because of the free tyre choice, but I wanted to be P11! However, Dany did a very good lap and I just had to do better today - I can only blame myself."


Claudio Balestri (Chief Engineer - Vehicle Performance): "Based on what we learnt on Friday, we modified our set-ups overnight to improve the car balance, which is always tricky on this track where we run with less downforce. The changes we made brought some improvement and this was evident in FP3, where we showed quite a good performance, especially on the Prime tyre. In preparation for qualifying, we made further changes to improve the balance on softer tyres. This afternoon, both drivers were able to easily make it to Q2, but we have missed Q3 by only a few hundredths of a second, which is a shame. Our focus now switches to preparations for the race and, with the qualifying positions providing us with some useful strategy options, we will be looking to take advantage of any opportunity which might present itself. We expect it to be an interesting race, especially if the rain comes."

Belgian GP: Qualifying team notes - Racing PointSergio Perez (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/13/sergio-perez): "I was a bit surprised to only be P8, so we need to look over the data and figure out why we seemed to lose some pace today, because we weren't as strong in FP3 or qualifying compared to yesterday. It was also really tight out there and the gaps between cars were very small. I don't feel we were able to show our true pace and we struggled on the mediums in Q2. We know it's going to be tight in the race tomorrow too, but I feel confident we will have good race pace. I think we can move forward and still score plenty of points. There's going to be a bit of an unknown with the weather too, so we might need to react quickly if rain arrives for the race."




Lance Stroll (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/57/lance-stroll): "We weren't as competitive as we wanted to be today and we were expecting more. We tried to reach Q3 on the medium tyre, but it just wasn't possible. In Q3 I lost two tenths on my best lap by locking up at the last chicane, which is a crucial part of the lap. When the grid is as tight as it was today, that's costly and it meant I wasn't able to improve on P9. It was a frustrating day, but now it's about bouncing back tomorrow. We need to go away tonight and review because there's a lot for us to analyse and improve to try to get back to the sort of pace we were showing on Friday. All in all, I think we'll have solid race pace tomorrow and anything can happen - and there's always the possibility of rain. We're right in the mix and it's going to be a close battle, so we can still fight for good points."


Otmar Szafnauer, CEO & Team Principal: "We had hoped to reach Q3 on the medium tyres, but with all the teams so closely-matched, we had to switch to the softs to progress. This left both drivers with just one set of the softs for Q3 and we chose to run early in the session. Our qualifying pace didn't quite match our expectations from practice, so that's something we need to understand going forward. It's tomorrow that counts, though, and we're certainly well placed to compete for good points. I'm optimistic that the race pace will be strong, but there's a chance rain showers could influence the race too."

Belgian GP: Qualifying team notes - Alfa RomeoThe Circuit de Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps)-Francorchamps is the longest track on the modern Formula One calendar. Laps take in excess of 100 seconds, an eternity compared to some shorter layouts (and don't get us started on the "Outer" Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir) one!). Gaps tend to be bigger, the percentage of difference between times being dilated by the extensive distance covered.



To miss out on a slot in Q2 for less than a tenth - 0.087, to be precise - is therefore frustrating. A slot in Q2, perhaps two, was a concrete possibility but today it was not to be. Kimi went really close, finishing just a smidgeon outside the safe zone; Antonio wasn't far either, just a few tenths¨üä away from a slot in the top 15. It was this close.


Disappointing as it may be, to be this close to a place in Q2 with both cars offers some optimism for tomorrow's race. The field is bunched up, opportunities are bound to crop up and we'll need to be ready to make the most of them. With good race pace and the right strategic choices, we will aim to be in the fight for the top ten.


And then there's the rain, that ever-present threat here in Belgium. Precipitation could turn this race upside down: it's always helpful to have a brolly at the ready here...


Frederic Vasseur: "Being edged out of Q2 by such a small margin, less than a tenth, is always a disappointment, but we can still be positive about our pace. On some clean laps, we would have had the pace to make it through with both cars, and that would have been a very good result. As things are, we line up just behind the Ferraris and we take the fight on from here. We still have a chance to make up some ground tomorrow: the grid is tight and the race is going to be long. The conditions are a big question mark and they could provide some good opportunities to move up the standings towards the points."


Kimi Raikkonen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/17/kimi-raikkonen): "We tried our best and today we really had a chance to go through, but we fell a bit short in the end. There was quite a bit of traffic on the outlap and the tyres were a bit too cold when I started the lap: I struggled with oversteer in turn one and lost some time compared to my previous lap. After that the car felt good, I went quicker than before but that wasn't enough to make it to the top 15. It's disappointing but that's how it is. We'll just see how it goes tomorrow and do our race: the rain would definitely make it a hectic day but we are not going to rely on that."


Antonio Giovinazzi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/58/antonio-giovinazzi): "It was close and maybe there would have been a possibility to be in Q2, but I made a small mistake in turn eight and that was enough to lose the time we needed to make the cut. It's disappointing but it is what it is. Tomorrow's going to be another race full of battles, we will need to give our best and try to score some points. It may be wet and that would mean a chaotic race: whatever the conditions, however, we will need to do a good job and see where we end up."

Belgian GP: Qualifying team notes - HaasHaas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) F1 Team drivers Romain Grosjean (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/7/romain-grosjean) and Kevin Magnussen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/33/kevin-magnussen) qualified 17th and 20th, respectively, for Sunday's Belgian Grand Prix, the seventh round of the 2020 FIA Formula One World Championship at Circuit de Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps)-Francorchamps.



Both drivers had three new sets of the Pirelli P Zero Red soft tires at their disposal for their planned Q1 qualifying runs. Grosjean clocked a 1:45.073 on his first timed attack but the Frenchman subsequently had to scrap his next run losing time at the FIA weighbridge on his return to the pits. His final outing in the dying minutes of the session netted a 1:43.838 on new softs - placing him 17th overall. Magnussen logged a 1:45.377 on his first stint before bettering that with a 1:44.314 on his second set of tires. An off-track excursion at turn 14 on his third and final timed run on fresh rubber eradicated any hopes of improvement leaving the Dane 20th at the checkered flag.


Romain Grosjean (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/7/romain-grosjean): "We knew we'd part of the six to eight last cars in qualifying. It's no secret though that here, Monza (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/13/monza), Mugello - they're all likely to be difficult weekends. The best we can do is to get the maximum from the car, and I think I did. My fast lap was a fun lap, Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps) is absolutely mega - I wish we could race more often here. Even if you're 17th if feels fast. If conditions are changeable tomorrow, then we can try different things and hopefully play to our strengths."


Kevin Magnussen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/33/kevin-magnussen): "It was very tight after the second run, in terms of time trying to do three runs here in Q1. After my second run though, the gap wasn't too big to the midfield guys in P13 and P14. That would have been a very good position for us. I knew I really had to come up with an extremely good lap to do it. I gave it everything I had but I just overdid it. I made a mistake at turn 14 and went off. We didn't have any tows in the first two runs and that costs you about three tenths or so. It just didn't really come together for us. We obviously don't really know much about our race pace, hopefully - as it often is, we're quicker in the race than compared to qualifying. I'm hoping that's the same tomorrow. There's a pretty good chance of rain on Sunday which could make things exciting."


Guenther Steiner: "It was a difficult qualifying, but then the whole weekend up until now has been difficult. We didn't have a lot of time to make up for the time we lost on Friday. We tried our best, we made progress, but it didn't work out. We had planned to have both cars do three runs in Q1 - to make sure they could get as much driving time in before going for their fast lap. Romain (Grosjean) was called into the weighbridge, so we lost one of his attempts, we had to cancel it as there wasn't the time. Kevin (Magnussen), on his fast qualifying run, he just tried to get the maximum out and he just tried too much. They both did a good job, it's just difficult if you don't run on Friday to get the confidence to attack like this as it's a fast track. Kevin just tried hard because we haven't got a lot to lose at the moment. We need to try hard and not be worried about taking calculated risks, we obviously don't want to do anything stupid. If it rains tomorrow, we're not going to do anything stupid, but we'll take calculated risks."

Belgian GP: Qualifying team notes - WilliamsGeorge Russell (https://www.pitpass.com/67813/drivers/66/george-russell) qualified 15th and Nicholas Latifi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/62/nicholas-latifi) 19th for the Belgian Grand Prix. George made Q2 for the fifth time this year, clocking his fastest time of qualifying with a 1:43.468. Nicholas improved on his final run in Q1, posting a 1:44.138.



Dave Robson, Head of Vehicle Performance: It was nice to be back in Q2 again this weekend and it is testament to all the hard work throughout the team that we were. The new parts that we brought here are working well, which bodes well for the future.


Nicholas was unfortunate with the brief yellow flag that cost him some time in his final lap of Q1, but otherwise it was a good session and both drivers enjoyed reasonably clear laps, which is never easy at this circuit.


It was a little surprising to be fighting with the two Ferraris, but it was nice to see us resume a proper battle with Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) and Alfa Romeo (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/15/alfa-romeo). Tomorrow is of course where it really counts but we have put ourselves in a good position with both cars to fight with Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) and Alfa Romeo (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/15/alfa-romeo). If we can also put some pressure on the Ferraris then we are set for a good race.


George Russell (https://www.pitpass.com/67813/drivers/66/george-russell): I am thrilled, and it was probably the best qualifying of the year for us. On paper, our car does not suit this circuit because of the long straights, so we were not expecting to be close to Q2. We put a really good lap together and the car was feeling great. It was exhilarating driving around here with the car on the limit like that, so I am really pleased. We hope for rain tomorrow, as if it is wet it might mix things up a bit, so fingers crossed the heavens open.


Nicholas Latifi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/62/nicholas-latifi): I am quite frustrated as the potential was there to get into Q2. We got very unlucky getting caught out by the yellow flag with the Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) so I had to lift for that on my last attempt. My lap considering this issue would have been good enough. However, the car was feeling great and we made some good changes overnight and everything was there to get into Q2. For sure in the race we will be looking to fight and challenge the other cars.

Belgian GP: Qualifying team notes - PirelliLewis Hamilton (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/9/lewis-hamilton)'s pole time on soft was not only nearly 1.3 seconds faster than last year's pole, but the Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) driver also set a new track record at Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps) four times during qualifying (including on the medium tyre) eclipsing the previous benchmark from 2018. The first seven cars in qualifying were all faster than last year's pole.



A lot is always said about variable conditions at Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps), but it's all true: weather will be the determining factor when it comes to strategy, especially with a considerable possibility of rain tomorrow. This will point teams towards a flexible strategy to allow them to take advantage of changing circumstances.


The top three cars - Lewis Hamilton (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/9/lewis-hamilton), Valtteri Bottas (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/3/valtteri-bottas) and Max Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen) - will all start the race on the P Zero Yellow medium tyre, having used it to set their best times in Q2, while the rest of the top 10 behind them will start on soft.


Both Renault (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/13/renault) cars have been quick all weekend, with Daniel Ricciardo (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/15/daniel-ricciardo) qualifying fourth and Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon) sixth.


The optimal strategy for the 44-lap Belgian Grand Prix is on paper a one-stopper, but as usual the tactics in Belgium will be heavily influenced by the weather. Aside from the possibility of rain, estimated earlier at 80%, ambient and track temperatures will also play a part.


The fastest theoretical strategy is to start on the soft tyre for 18 laps and then complete the race on the medium. The exact opposite can work too.


Second-quickest is another one-stopper, with the soft for 16 laps and the hard for 28 laps, while a two-stopper is feasible as well: start on the soft for 14 laps, then medium for 16 laps, then soft for 14 laps.


Slower is a one-stopper using medium for 20 laps and hard for 24 laps - but all the strategies listed above are actually quite close, so it will come down to individual race circumstances when deciding the best solution.


Mario Isola: "There were only a few drops of rain seen earlier today, and on the P Zero Red soft tyres - one step softer than the softest compound we brought to Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps) last year - Lewis Hamilton (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/9/lewis-hamilton) broke the all-time Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps) lap record four times during qualifying, including once on the medium tyre. The fact that the top seven on the grid are all faster than last year's pole underlines the impressive evolution of the cars since last year. We've seen some divergence in strategies already, with the top three cars on the grid starting the race on the medium tyre tomorrow. This will make for a particularly interesting first stint: those on the medium should be able to go longer, but the drivers on soft will have a speed advantage that could be considerable in the early stages. While the teams will always be planning their strategies carefully, Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps) is a race where tactics often have to react to changing circumstances, which could well be the case with uncertain weather predicted tomorrow."

FORMULA 1 ROLEX BELGIAN GRAND PRIX 2020 -Spa-Francorchamps
Resultados CARRERA
Domingo, 30 de agosto de 2020


Nueva victoria de Lewis HAMILTON que sigue imparable hacia su séptimo título mundial.

Tras él, los habituales: Valtteri BOTTAS y Max VERSTAPPEN.

Ha sido una carrera bastante aburrida en la que RICCIARDO ha tenido una gran actuación al terminar 4º y logrando llevarse el punto extra de la vuelta rápida. Tras él ha cruzado la meta OCON, que logró adelantar en la última vuelta a ALBON, que fue el único que tras salir con el blando, terminó la carrera con el neumático medio, haciendole perder posición con los dos pilotos de Renault.

NORRIS cruzó la meta en 7ª posición mientras que SAINZ no pudo ni comenzar debido a problemas con el escape.

Gran actuación de Pierre GASLY, que fue el único piloto que comenzó con el neumático duro y realizó bastantes adelantamientos. Su compañero KVYAT no pudo puntuar al terminar 11º.

Los últimos puntos han sido para los Racing Point de STROLL y Checo PÉREZ, que fue el piloto que más alargó su primera parada y tuvo luego que remontar desde el final de la parrilla. Muy discreta la actuación de los coches rosa.

Kimi RÄIKKONEN le ha sacado los colores a Ferrari al quedar por delante de ellos, incluso adelantó a VETTEL en pista.

LECLERC se vió obligado a hacer una parada extra en la que el equipo aumentó la presión neumática del motor por motivos de seguridad. Eso le hizo quedar por detrás de Vettel.

La clasificación la cierran GROSJEAN, LATIFI y MAGNUSSEN.

Al abandono, o mejor dicho al no comienzo de Sainz, hay que añadir los abandonos de GIOVINAZZI y RUSSELL cuando un error del italiano le hizo irse al muro, dejando fuera de carrera al de Williams por culpa de una rueda suelta del Alfa Romeo.

Esperemos que las próximas carreras no sean tan sosas, que ya tenemos bastante con el dominio de Mercedes y Verstappen.

Ferrari pierde un puesto en el mundial de constructores y Renault ya está a solo dos puntos. Y si esto sigue asi, se las van a ver por el 7º puesto con Alpha Tauri, equipo al que da gusto ver por cierto. La imagen que han dado hoy es absolutamente lamentable. Cuanta razón tienes, Goval, de que se van a librar en Monza al no haber público porque dan la impresión de ir hacia un ridiculo histórico.

La carrera aburrida y, me sabe mal decirlo, pero una tónica los últimos años en Spa.

Em Spa-Francorchamps, Lewis Hamilton tem corrida perfeita e conquista 89ªVitória da carreiraSem surpresas na corrida de hoje. O inglês Lewis Hamilton conquistou a vitória no GP da Bélgica, foi sua 5ªvitória na temporada e a 89ªvitória da carreira. Em uma corridas sem as emoções que se esperava devido ao acidente de Antonio Giovinazzi que envolveu George Russell. Isso fez as táticas de pneus de todos os pilotos a partir da 10ªVolta.
Antes da largada, a Mclaren descobre um problema de escapamento em Carlos Sainz jr. O Espanhol não foi para o grid e não disputou a corrida. Com apenas 19 pilotos no Grid foi dada a largada do GP da Bélgica.
http://portalsportszone.com.br/wp-content/uploads/2020/08/F1_spa_domingo2020-3.jpg

Nessa largada, Hamilton e Bottas largam bem e mantiveram as 2 primeiras posições, Verstappen vinha em 3º e Ricciardo em 4º. Na terceira curva, Verstappen tentou passar Bottas, mas quase foi pego no contrapé por Daniel Ricciardo e teve de lutar muito para manter a 3ªposição em cima do piloto da Renault. Esteban Ocon fez uma bela largada e ganhou a 5ªposição em cima de Alexander Albon.
Ao final da volta, Gasly superou Perez, ganhando a 9ªposição. A Grande largada foi de Charles Leclerc, que pulou da 13ª para a 8ªposição. Um excelente trabalho do piloto da Ferrari. Porém, a ruindade do carro SF1000 não permitiu o monegasco lutar para manter as posições contra Pierre Gasly na reta oposta na 3ªVolta, e na volta seguinte, foi a vez de Perez superar Leclerc e de ganhar a 9ªposição. Essa seria uma normalidade no começo da corrida. Pra dizer a verdade, A Ferrari naquele momento estava em uma posição muito acima do que deveria estar.


Nas primeiras voltas, Bottas vinha perto de Hamilton, aproximadamente a 1 segundo entre os dois pilotos. Verstappen vinha 3.4 segundos do líder. Já Ricciardo vinha bem mais distante do piloto holandês. Enquanto isso, Leclerc vinha sendo superado sistematicamente pelos pilotos da metade do pelotão. Na 6ªVolta, foi superado pelo Norris e na 7ªvolta por Danill Kvyat. Com isso, o piloto da Ferrari já vinha em 12ºlugar.
http://portalsportszone.com.br/wp-content/uploads/2020/08/F1_spa_domingo2020-2-1024x683.jpg
Hamilton que vinha sendo pressionado pelo companheiro de equipe, começou a andar rápido e marcar melhor volta da prova. Após 8 voltas, a disputa da corrida estava entre Lance Stroll e Pierre Gasly, uma briga valendo a 7ªposição.
Na 10ªVolta, Antonio Giovinazzi roda e bate forte, uma das peças do carro do piloto da Alfa acerta a roda do carro de George Russell que também foi para o muro. Com toda a destruição que ocorreu na pista, o Safety car entrou na pista. Isso fez com que quase todo mundo fosse para os boxes, colocarem os pneus duros (Com exceção de Albon que colocou os pneus médios). Pierre Gasly em 4º e Sergio Perez em 5º não foram para os boxes. Hamilton, Bottas, Verstappen mantiveram as 3 primeiras posições.


Foi um longo safety car que durou por 5 longas voltas. A relargada aconteceu na volta 15. Gasly em 4º sofreu um ataque de Sergio Perez, mas resistiu muito bem e conteve o ataque do piloto mexicano. A partir dai, foi Perez que começou a sofrer com o desgaste de pneus e com a pressão de Daniel Ricciardo. Ao mesmo tempo em que Vettel acaba superado por Kimi Raikkonen, ganhando a 12ªposição.
http://portalsportszone.com.br/wp-content/uploads/2020/08/F1_spa_domingo2020-19.jpg

Ao entrar na 17ªVolta, Riccardo passa Perez e assume a 5ªposição. O piloto da Racing Point perderia posição para Albon no final da volta. Na entrada da 19ªVolta, Perez vai para a sua parada e cai para as últimas posições. Na mesma volta, Vettel e Leclerc se tocam ao disputar a 13ªposição. Vettel levou vantagem nessa disputa na tentativa de ultrapassagem do piloto monegasco.
Após 20 voltas, Hamilton abria vantagem de 2.5 segundos para Bottas, que estava vendo Max Verstappen se aproximar dele, a 1.2 segundos. O Holandês queria aprontar mais uma, se aproveitando da dificuldade de aquecimento de pneus do carro do finlandês da Mercedes.



Na 21ªVolta, Ricciardo vai para cima de Gasly (Que já vinha com os pneus desgastados). O francês nada pode fazer para impedir a ultrapassagem do piloto da Renault, que naquele momento voltava a 4ªposição. Logo depois, foi a vez de Albon disputar posição com o piloto da Alpha Tauri. Na volta 24, o tailandês supera Gasly e assume a 5ªposição. Já não fazia mais sentido que a Alpha Tauri mantivesse o piloto na pista com pneus tão desgastados.
http://portalsportszone.com.br/wp-content/uploads/2020/08/F1_spa_domingo2020-20-1024x683.jpg

Na volta 27, Gasly vai para a sua parada nos boxes (Antes disso, foi superado por Esteban Ocon na volta anterior), colocando os pneus médios e voltando em penúltimo lugar. Lá na frente, Hamilton abre 3.8 segundos à frente de Bottas. O piloto Finlandês ganhou um folego a frente do Verstappen e sua vantagem para o vice-líder do Mundial subiu para 2.0 segundos. Ricciardo vinha a mais de 15 segundos do piloto da Red Bull em 4º. Depois vinham Albon, Ocon, Stroll, Norris, Kvyat e Raikkonen nas 10 primeiras posições.
Quando a corrida chegava ao seu terço final, Perez e Gasly começavam a aparecer de novo na corrida, com seus pneus novos e superando os adversários com pneus desgastados.


Na 32ªVolta, Perez já vinha em 11º, apontando suas armas para tomar a posição de Kimi Raikkonen, já Gasly vinha em 12º, após superar Sebastian Vettel (Que já vinha em dramática situação de pneus). Nas duas voltas seguintes, Perez e depois Gasly superaram o Homem de Gelo. A próxima vitima de ambos seria Danill Kvyat.
http://portalsportszone.com.br/wp-content/uploads/2020/08/F1_spa_domingo2020-4.jpg

Lá na frente, Hamilton vinha a 4.8 segundos de Bottas e 9 segundos sobre Verstappen. A corrida estava teoricamente tranquila para os três, mas os pneus eram o grande problema deles, que vinham sofrendo com o desgaste deles. Mais atrás, Lando Norris se aproveitou do desgaste de pneus de Stroll e acabou tomando a 7ªposição do piloto Canadense. Um pouco mais atrás, Perez e Gasly superaram Kvyat e voltaram à zona de pontuação.
Hamilton saiu da pista por causa do desgaste de pneus. Voltas depois, foi a vez de Bottas dar uma passeada por fora da pista, na chicane que levava a reta dos boxes. Verstappen reclamava de trepidação dos pneus. Tudo poderia acontecer nas últimas voltas de prova.


Enquanto que lá atrás, Ocon chega em cima de Albon, com pneus em melhor estado, o piloto da Renault teria uma boa chance de passar o segundo piloto da Red Bull. Foram 5 ultimas voltas de uma bela disputa de posição. Alexander Albon até se defendeu bem de um ataque de Ocon a 3 voltas do final.
Isso permitiu que Norris chegasse nos dois, mas na última volta, Ocon acabou superando Albon e garantindo o 5ºlugar. Pierre Gasly antes disso passou para a 8ªposição, superando a Lance Stroll.
http://portalsportszone.com.br/wp-content/uploads/2020/08/F1_spa_domingo2020-6.jpg

As tensões dos pneus ficaram no até as últimas curvas, mas dessa vez, nenhum piloto sofreu com pneu furado. Lewis Hamilton conquistou a 89ªVitória da carreira. Chegando a está a 2 vitórias de igualar o recorde de vitórias que pertence a Michael Schumacher (91 vitórias). Um final de semana irretocável do piloto da Mercedes.
http://portalsportszone.com.br/wp-content/uploads/2020/08/F1_spa_domingo2020-5-1024x683.jpg

Depois de alguns insucessos e falta de sorte, Valtteri Bottas conseguiu a segunda posição e completou a dobradinha da equipe Mercedes. O finlandês esta agora a 3 pontos de Max Verstappen, vice-líder do campeonato fez uma boa corrida, mas diferentemente de outras corridas, não conseguiu penetrar na briga das duas Mercedes e teve de se contentar mesmo com o 3ºlugar…
http://portalsportszone.com.br/wp-content/uploads/2020/08/F1_spa_domingo2020-26-1024x683.jpg

…Até por que, Daniel Ricciardo tirou muito dos 16 segundos que tinha de desvantagem sobre Max nas últimas voltas. Isso não só rendeu o 4ºlugar ao piloto da Renault como a melhor volta da corrida, que dá ao piloto Australiano mais um ponto no campeonato. Um dia em que sem dúvida o piloto esta bem sorridente com seu dia. Igualmente a Renault, que obteve seu melhor resultado do ano, já que Esteban Ocon acabou em 5ºlugar, superando a Alexander Albon da Red Bull e a Lando Norris da Mclaren.
A corrida do Tailandês foi abaixo do esperado, já do jovem piloto britânico foi acima das expectativas modestas da equipe de Woking no circuito de Spa-francorchamps.
http://portalsportszone.com.br/wp-content/uploads/2020/08/F1_spa_domingo2020-23-1024x653.jpg

Sendo eleito piloto do dia pelos fãs da Formula 1 (Com muita justiça, diga-se de passagem). Pierre Gasly andou muito bem, conseguiu levar o carro da Alpha Tauri com competência a zona de pontuação. Seu começo de corrida se destaca com um excelente rendimento com os pneus duros e mesmo com um certo erro de tática da sua equipe, ele ainda conseguiu se recuperar e chegar ao 8ºlugar.
Completando a zona de pontuação ficaram Lance Stroll e Sergio Perez. Uma corrida bem abaixo das expectativas da Racing Point, ambos ficaram sem pneus. Pior ainda ficou para Danill Kvyat, que teve um desgaste excessivo dos seus pneus na reta final de corrida. Mesmo sem cometer nenhum erro, acabou de fora dos pontos, na 11ªposição. Perto do piloto russo ficou o Finlandês Kimi Raikkonen, que levando-se em conta a bomba que ele tem nas mãos, foi uma ótima corrida do Homem de Gelo.
http://portalsportszone.com.br/wp-content/uploads/2020/08/F1_spa_domingo2020-16-1024x683.jpg

Agora, Que final de semana terrivel da Ferrari… Nada deu certo para Sebastian Vettel e Charles Leclerc (Que ainda teve o brilho da largada, mas que não se sustentou por muitas voltas). Como um carro que ganha a prova do ano passado, no mesmo período acaba perdendo a mão do carro, sem potência e sem expectativas de melhora. A prova em Monza semana que vem tem tudo para ser um capitulo bem triste da equipe de Maranello na Formula 1.
http://portalsportszone.com.br/wp-content/uploads/2020/08/F1_spa_domingo2020-12-1024x683.jpg

Romain Grosjean da Haas, Nicholas Latifi da Williams e Kevin Magnussen da Haas só constaram na classificação, pois pouco fizeram e pouco puderam fazer com seus carros nesse final de semana.
Semana que vem, teremos a 8ªetapa do Mundial de Formula 1. No tradicional circuito de Monza, onde Hamilton, Bottas e Verstappen disputarão mais uma vez a vitória. Já a Ferrari torce por um milagre para seu final de semana que vem não seja uma catástrofe como foi o esse final de semana.

Impresiones de los equipos después de la carrera:

Belgian GP: Race team notes - MercedesLewis took his 89th career victory today, his fourth at the Circuit de Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps)-Francorchamps and fifth of the 2020 season. Valtteri came home in P2, completing a 1-2 victory for the team, and claiming his best result at the Belgian Grand Prix.


Today's result marks the 50th 1-2 finish for the Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) works team in the modern era (since 2010).


Lewis (157 points) leads the Drivers' Championship by 47 points from Max Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen) (110 points), with Valtteri in P3 (107 points). The Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes)-AMG Petronas F1 Team (264 points) leads Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) (158 points) by 106 points in the Constructors' Championship.


Lewis Hamilton (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/9/lewis-hamilton): Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps) is such a special circuit, I could just drive around here for lap after lap. It's not always been an easy one for me, so to come here and get pole and the win this weekend is fantastic. The first lap can be a nightmare, because of the huge tow down the big straight, but I managed to keep Valtteri behind me on lap one and from there I had a strong race. Of course, I'd love to be able to win every race wheel to wheel, but today was a different kind of race, it was all about managing the tyres and the gap to the cars behind. I was slightly nervous at the end that we might see a repeat of the tyre issue we had in Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone), but thankfully it held in there. Huge credit to the team, both here and back home in Brackley and Brixworth. No matter how much success we've had over the years, everyone just keeps their heads down and focuses on trying to improve. It's an incredible mentality to have and it's inspiring to be working in that kind of environment.


Valtteri Bottas (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/3/valtteri-bottas): The race was pretty straight-forward today; I was hoping to really get some good opportunities today in the first lap and at the Safety Car restart, but I couldn't use the tow going up to Turn 5 enough today. I was actually really close to Lewis out of the first corner, but the tow effect was much smaller today than it was in previous years. I'm not quite sure why, maybe that's because we had a tail wind going into Turn 5. I don't think there was really any other opportunity to catch Lewis; he was on pole, drove a good race and deserved the win today. Towards the end of the race, we had to really manage the tyres quite a bit; I was starting to get the same kind of vibration that I felt before the end of the race in Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) when I suffered the puncture. I had to reduce the pace quite a bit to save the tyres, but it worked out and I'm happy that this time I didn't lose the points. I was just told that this was my 51st podium - the same number of podiums that Mika Häkkinen scored in his career. He was my idol growing up, so it's great to equal him in that way, although he is obviously mostly known for his two titles.


Toto Wolff: That was a great race. We had not won in Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps) since 2017, so to come back with such a strong performance and very good pace on a track that troubled us before makes me really happy. The race was relatively straight-forward after the start, but it ended up getting very tricky towards the end, because the tyres were almost at the end of their life. We could see the same on Verstappen's car and at that point it was really about bringing our cars home safely. So we told our drivers to stay off the kerbs and lose quite a bit of pace. It gave us a bit of a headache because the memory of the punctures in Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) was still fresh and that's obviously what we wanted to avoid at all cost. So for us, the race wasn't over until both cars had really crossed the line - but luckily they did and secured this great one-two. We're really looking forward to go to Monza (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/13/monza) next week and then to Mugello - the races keep coming thick and fast and it just doesn't stop.


Andrew Shovlin: Another great result for the team. The safety car was a bit earlier than we'd have wanted, which made it difficult to get the hard tyre through those last few laps. In the early part of the second stint we thought it was close between a one and a two-stop, but seeing the degradation on the hard, we realised that Verstappen on the two-stop would be a significant threat around lap 25 when he was close behind Valtteri. That caused us to get both drivers to drop the tyre management and put some quick laps in. They were both able to build gaps that meant we could cover if Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) did stop but the fast laps did take a bit out of the tyres and they were really dropping off in the last few laps. Overall though, it's been a good weekend for the team. The car hasn't had the same pace we've enjoyed at other tracks this year, particularly in qualifying, but the team has done a good job to get the most out of it and we've operated well throughout the weekend. We're looking forward to Monza (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/13/monza), but we need to find a lower drag set-up as we're behind Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) on the straights already and the latest technical directive from the FIA on engine modes is going to cost us time in qualifying. But the team will be working hard in Brackley and Brixworth over the next few days to try and stay ahead.

Belgian GP: Race team notes - FerrariScuderia Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) came away from the 65th Belgian Grand Prix empty handed at the end of a disappointing race, which saw both cars finish outside the points. Sebastian Vettel (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/21/sebastian-vettel) was 13th and Charles Leclerc (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/61/charles-leclerc) was 14th. Although in reverse order, the two SF1000s finished where they started, which confirms the difficulties that beset the Maranello cars all weekend long.



The only bright point of the weekend was Charles' start, which saw him move up three places and on the following lap take another when he got past Sergio Perez (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/13/sergio-perez) for eighth, no doubt helped by his Soft tyres. However, after that he began to struggle and had to give best to Pierre Gasly (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/53/pierre-gasly) (AlphaTauri (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/16/alphatauri),) Perez and Lando Norris (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/60/lando-norris) (McLaren (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/5/mclaren)).


On lap 10, the Safety Car was required after Antonio Giovinazzi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/58/antonio-giovinazzi) crashed in the Alfa Romeo (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/15/alfa-romeo), an incident which also involved George Russell (https://www.pitpass.com/67837/drivers/66/george-russell) (Williams (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/11/williams).) At this point, Charles pitted for Hard tyres. Sebastian came in next time round to switch from the Mediums to the Hards. When the race resumed on lap 16, Vettel was 12th and Leclerc 14th, but their pace was lacking to the extent that Sebastian was passed by Kimi Raikkonen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/17/kimi-raikkonen) in the Alfa Romeo (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/15/alfa-romeo). Therefore, at this point the team decided to split the strategies, bringing Charles in again on lap 24 to fit Medium tyres.


At two thirds distance, Seb was 12th, five places ahead of Charles, who on his last set of tyres was again able to pick up the pace and began to make up ground. He passed Nicholas Latifi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/62/nicholas-latifi) in the Williams (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/11/williams) and Kevin Magnussen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/33/kevin-magnussen) in the Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas), climbing up to 15th spot, while Vettel was beginning to have tyre wear problems and had to give best to Gasly. Then, on the final lap, Charles was able to pass Romain Grosjean (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/7/romain-grosjean) in the other Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) to finish 14th behind his team-mate.


The 2020 Championship now moves on to the second race of this third triple-header, with the action resuming next week at Monza (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/13/monza) for the usual Italian Grand Prix. After that, it's on to Mugello which hosts a round of the world championship for the very first time, the Toscana Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) 1000 Grand Prix.


Sebastian Vettel (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/21/sebastian-vettel): "It was not an easy race. We finished in the same place in which we started. We tried everything with both cars, but we were just too slow. I hope the situation on this circuit doesn't repeat itself. I think this track maybe exposed our weaknesses a bit more than others.


"I believe we can do a bit better next week. We must work to make sure that we take everything we can from this weekend, learn all there is to learn and go forward."


Charles Leclerc (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/61/charles-leclerc): "It has been a very difficult day. I had a very good start and managed to make up several positions thanks to a good tow up to turn 5, but after that things started to get worse. First of all, we lost time during both pit stops due to some issues.


"During the second stint, we knew that we couldn't make any miracles happen so, seeing the position we were in, with a train of cars ahead and no possibility to overtake, we decided to try something different and go for a second stop. It's a shame that it didn't work out, but ultimately, today we just didn't have the pace we needed.


"The next race will be a difficult one for us, but hopefully from Mugello, it could get better. We have to stay united, react and work hard to come back to where we were before."


Mattia Binotto Team Principal: "On a track that requires aerodynamic efficiency and power, we were severely lacking
in both. Charles and Sebastian did their very best, both yesterday in qualifying and today in the race, but we couldn't even get into the points.


"We are disappointed and angry, as indeed are our fans and with good reason. It's a difficult moment in a season that we knew from the start would be a tough one, but it's at times like this that we need to stand firm and look ahead in order to get over this difficult period. It's the only way we will get out of this situation.

Belgian GP: Race team notes - Red BullMax Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen): "I love this track but the race was not really the most exciting from my side. It wasn't really much of a fight and I just tried to do my own race and maximise the result. On the medium tyre I didn't have a lot of grip and then on the hard I was initially trying to put pressure on Valtteri but he was told to speed up and was able to build a good gap, so after that it was a bit lonely. There was not much action up front unfortunately and the tyre wear was quite high so we couldn't really push. I had some vibrations towards the end of the race so I really had to manage my tyres, I took no risks and brought it home. Overall, we had a good weekend and the car balance was nice so we can be pleased with that. We are not here to finish third and we want more but it is always good to be on the podium."



Alex Albon: "It was a frustrating race and it was pretty tricky to do anything. We knew before the race that the Renaults would be hard to overtake with their low downforce and straightline speed and that proved to be the case. I felt pretty good at the start on the soft tyre and then we managed to jump Ocon in the pits when we changed to mediums, thanks to a good stop from the boys in the garage. I don't think we expected as much degradation as we got on that compound and maybe they weren't the right choice in the end but I pushed as hard as I could to try and do the overtakes and the tyres just dropped off. We'll have a look at it to see what we can learn before our focus shifts towards Monza (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/13/monza) in a few days but it's nice to move up to fourth in the championship which is a sign we're making progress."

Christian Horner, Team Principal: "It was a tricky race today with tyre management but we managed to get solid points on the board with both cars. Max didn't quite have the pace to fight the Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) with tyre degradation in the second half of the race proving to be significant, so we were weighing up whether to one or two stop. Daniel's straightline speed was obviously very strong so we opted to stick with a one stop and Max managed to bring the car home for his sixth podium in a row. Meanwhile, Alex lost a place at the start to Ocon but managed to get it back through his pit stop when we elected to put him on the medium tyre which we thought was the best compound to attack the Renaults. He did a good job today defending hard throughout the Grand Prix but unfortunately the Renaults were just too fast on the straights with their lower downforce configuration and he lost P5 on the final lap. Alex is now up to fourth in the Drivers' Championship and he's had a very solid weekend so now we'll continue to work hard as a Team before we arrive in Monza (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/13/monza) next week."

Belgian GP: Race team notes - McLarenLando Norris (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/60/lando-norris): "A good race in the end: P10 to P7, so I'm pretty happy. It was a tricky start - I don't know what happened at the end of the back straight, there was some water or a bit of oil on track or something and I completely lost the rear. It put me down a few positions more than I wanted and set me back - but the rest of the race was really good.



"I controlled my pace when I had to, knowing that the Racing Points and Renaults were quick when we had a similar tyre life. I knew I might've been able to overtake and that's what I did. I felt the car came on strong - it got better and better towards the end of the race and we managed to push forward a bit with some good pace. One more lap and I could've done something to get P6, but I'm still happy with P7."


Carlos Sainz (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/47/carlos-sainz): "I'm extremely disappointed not to race for a second-consecutive year here in Belgium. Having started from P7 and seeing how the race unfolded, we definitely missed a very strong chance to score big points and get a good result. So, I'm very far from happy.


"It's the second engine with issues this year and the frustration of losing points again is very tough. I strongly feel this is not the season we deserve so far. However, we'll put it behind us and switch our focus to Monza (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/13/monza) tomorrow. We move on."


Andreas Seidl, Team Principal: "It was damage-limitation today. Despite having a good race car here, we could only score six points. Carlos' race was over before it began with a PU failure on his reconnaissance laps-to-grid, which forced us to retire the car before the start. Lando unfortunately lost two positions during the first lap, which compromised his race.


"On a positive note, Lando drove a great race to fight his way back up to P7, and that result lifts us back up to P3 in the Constructors' Championship, taking points away from both Racing Point (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/14/racing-point) and Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari). The team in the garage and back at the MTC did an excellent job to stay focussed after the big disappointment with Carlos and executed Lando's race perfectly, including a very good pit-stop.


"Tomorrow we reset and prepare for the Italian Grand Prix. We've seen here that we can compete on the low-downforce tracks, which should put us in a good position for a fight with our closest rivals at Monza (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/13/monza)."

Belgian GP: Race team notes - RenaultRenault (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/13/renault) DP World F1 Team claimed a superb result from today's Belgian Grand Prix, picking up 23 points courtesy of Daniel Ricciardo (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/15/daniel-ricciardo)'s fourth place - and bonus point for Fastest Lap - and Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon)'s fifth place finish at Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps)-Francorchamps.



On a thrilling final lap, Daniel eased home in fourth position and claimed one extra point for the Fastest Lap of the race with Esteban pulling off a fine overtake on Alex Albon at Les Combes to match his best result in Formula 1 in fifth.


On the one-year anniversary since Anthoine Hubert's tragic accident at this circuit, today's result certainly is a fitting tribute to the late Frenchman.


Both drivers made solid starts with Esteban passing Albon on the run out of La Source while Daniel put pressure on Max Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen) into Turn 5.


As the race settled both drivers occupied fourth and fifth. A safety car on lap 10 meant both cars double stacked for Hard tyres with Esteban dropping a place to Albon in the pits.


Daniel began progressing his way back up to fourth with Esteban locked in a tight battle for fifth, which he was able to snatch on the final lap of the race.


Today's result is the team's highest points haul from a Grand Prix weekend since returning to the sport in 2016.


Daniel Ricciardo (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/15/daniel-ricciardo): "What a race and definitely an excellent result for the team. We had a lot of pace today and fourth is a strong result. It's been a while since I've had the fastest lap of the race, so that was also nice. My engineer told me what the current fastest was and I thought 'I got this'! It was a proper big lap; I used all the track and went for it. Maybe it was better than my qualifying lap yesterday! This was a good track for us last year and Monza (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/13/monza) was even better. We'll see what happens, but we can go there with a lot of confidence."


Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon): "That fifth place was ours today, so I'm very happy to secure it on the last lap. It's fantastic for the team to have fourth and fifth today, we've been quick all weekend and fighting with the top cars. The race was pretty solid, we got Albon at the start and then lost it at the pit-stop. The guys did a great job on the stop, so we'll see where we missed out there. From there we had to keep working hard, close the gap and then find a pass at the end. It's positive that the car is performing well at these tracks, so we can go to Monza (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/13/monza) feeling ready to go again."


Cyril Abiteboul, Team Principal: "Today's result is dedicated to Anthoine Hubert who we think of on this particular weekend. We knew Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps) would suit our package and there were big points at stake. We executed our plan all the way through the weekend. While we're satisfied with today, we have to stay focused. It's the same car that failed to be in the top ten in Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona) and that shows a lack of consistency for competitiveness and improving this will have to be our priority. In addition to the strong finishing positions that brings us closer to the teams ahead in the championship, the fastest lap today by Daniel rounds off in style the result and I see that as a reward to everyone in Viry who has been working so hard for several years to get on top of the complexity of the power unit. We'll celebrate a little bit to give us the energy to attack what's coming next, but our focus is already on Monza (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/13/monza) and the milestone of the change to the qualifying mode that we must prepare with the highest possible care."

Belgian GP: Race team notes - AlphaTauriPierre Gasly (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/53/pierre-gasly): "It was an important day for me because I wanted to do well for Anthoine after what happened last year. We decided to go for a different strategy, starting on the hard compound. It was better than expected and I was able to attack and overtake quite a few cars. The move on Perez was especially intense but very enjoyable! We knew a safety car between the start of the race and lap 20 would be a killer for us, but unfortunately, that's what happened and gave the other cars a free pitstop. We didn't give up because we had a great car, good pace, so I pushed as hard as I could.

After our pitstop, we exited almost last and we had to fight back through the field, but I enjoyed it and to recover to P8 was just great! I reckon the safety car cost us a potential P5 today because I think we lost around 20 seconds there and finished seven seconds behind Ocon in P5. We had a big job ahead of us today, so to recover the way we did was great and I think we can be very happy with that. It's nice to be voted Driver of the Day, so thanks to all the people who voted for me and I'll try to put this kind of performance again and again in the coming weeks."



Daniil Kvyat (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/32/daniil-kvyat): "I think that we didn't choose the right strategy today, so we will have to review our race. We couldn't have known it before the race, so we split the cars and unfortunately, I was on the wrong side of the strategy call. It would have been better to start on the harder compound, and I felt I was always in the wrong place at the wrong time today, because at a track like Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps), it's very hard to keep cars behind on old tyres."


Claudio Balestri (Chief Engineer - Vehicle Performance): "We had a good race today. We optimized our low downforce package during the weekend and it paid off. Our competitive top speed in the race permitted us to overtake many cars. The pit wall did a solid job in terms of strategy because we tried to maximize the advantage of free tyre choice. In the end, Pierre put in a fantastic drive, overtaking many cars which is very satisfying. Daniil was on different strategy, he pitted under safety car which was deployed for the crash between Russell and Giovinazzi, and similarly to most of the drivers we tried to go to the end with him on the base tyre. At the end of the race, Pierre finished P8 and Daniil finished just out of the points in P11. We now head to Monza (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/13/monza) with a bit of momentum to continue the fight for points."


Franz Tost (Team Principal): "After Qualifying, Daniil and Pierre finished in P11 and P12 - which is quite a good position because you can decide which tyres to begin the race - so we opted to split the strategy. Daniil started on the Prime, while Pierre stared on the Base. Both had a really good start; Pierre immediately started to overtake the cars in front, moving up to P8. Daniil was two places behind when a safety car came as a result of Giovinazzi's crash, so we decided to pit Daniil and leave Pierre out on the Base tyre, as for our strategy it was too early to pit him. Pierre did a very good job defending his position until, later on, other drivers managed to overtake him on fresher tyres, so we pitted him for Prime on lap 26. He then started a competitive comeback to close the gap and was able to overtake the Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas), Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) and the Racing Points to finish in eighth position. It was a fantastic drive from Pierre and without the safety car, our strategy to start on the Base would have paid off even more as I think Pierre could have finished higher up the order. Like many other drivers, Daniil suffered with the tyres at the end of the race, therefore he wasn't able to score points and finished in P11. Now we are looking forward to going to our "first home race" out of three in Italy, it's always nice to be back in Monza (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/13/monza), where we have very good memories."

Belgian GP: Race team notes - Racing PointLance Stroll (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/57/lance-stroll): "It was a difficult race today. We made a good start and gained a place, and we were looking comfortable in the first stint, but we had degradation in the second on the hard tyre and it was difficult to manage. We were running in P7 late on and I'm disappointed to have finished in P9 - but there was nothing I could do to hold onto a higher position. The positive is that we were able to score points on a challenging day regardless, and we've got a chance to improve and score more points next weekend at Monza (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/13/monza). I think the circuit should suit our car, but we need to go away and analyse everything that happened today to find some solutions to ensure we hit the ground running at Monza (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/13/monza)."



Sergio Perez (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/13/sergio-perez): "It's important we go away and review the strategy, but I don't think it had a big bearing on the race as we were able to get both cars into the points - which is the positive from today. The task now is to go away and understand why we weren't able to maintain the pace we had at the beginning of the weekend through qualifying and the race. We were able to make up places after our pitstop and get back into the points, and it was nice to be able to make a few overtakes out there! But overall, we just didn't have enough pace today, so we need to make sure we come back stronger at Monza (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/13/monza) next weekend. It's a track that should suit us, and I'm hopeful we can score good points there."


Otmar Szafnauer, CEO & Team Principal: "Getting two cars home inside the points was the goal today, but we had hoped to be higher up the order at the end. We need to understand why we were not as strong in the final stages of the race where we lost some positions in the final few laps. I think strategically the safety car presented some difficult decisions for everybody. At the time it was questionable whether a one-stop race was possible at that point. That was why we kept Sergio out under the safety car in the hope that he would have a tyre advantage at the end compared to our competition. We will take away the lessons learned this afternoon to come back stronger in Italy next week. In terms of the standings, we're now fourth but we're only a couple of points off third, so we will work hard to reclaim that position in the coming races."

Belgian GP: Race team notes - Alfa RomeoProgress, of sorts, isn't always immediately visible. Sometimes it can be a sneaky kind of progression, under the radar. It often doesn't deliver immediate results, but it's there. Today felt a bit like that. P12 doesn't bring any reward, no points to add to the tally, but the way in which it was obtained is a little bit of a positive.



There was pace in the cars, both Kimi and Antonio fighting with the Ferraris in the opening stages before an incident for the Italian brought out the Safety Car. There was plenty of fighting spirit in display, as Kimi passed Vettel after the restart and made it, on merit, into the top ten. There wasn't a lot of luck, unfortunately, as the Finn seemed to be quicker than Kvyat in the wrong parts of the track, where making further progress wasn't possible. Stuck behind the Russian, he was at the mercy of Sergio Perez (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/13/sergio-perez) and Pierre Gasly (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/53/pierre-gasly) who, on fresher tyres, edged him into P12. We finished the race as the highest-ranked Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari)-powered car, two places away from that all-important P10.


There are no points on offer for 12th, but we're making progress. Progress isn't always immediately visible, but that doesn't mean it's not happening. The important is to keep working at it.


Frederic Vasseur, Team Principal: "It was a race of two halves, unfortunately, but we showed some more competitiveness compared to previous rounds. Kimi lost some ground at the start but was able to make it back into 15th within a few laps, whereas Antonio had a really good launch and was putting pressure on Vettel's Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari). His race ended at lap nine, but both drivers were able to keep their rivals honest with some decent pace. Kimi had a strong race and ran in the points after the pit stops: unfortunately, we seemed to be quicker on the twisty part of the track, where overtaking is not that easy, and he couldn't make his way past Kvyat. In the end, P12 is the most we could have done today and, while points remain elusive, we can take a bit of encouragement from our performance."


Kimi Raikkonen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/17/kimi-raikkonen): "I feel the result today is as good as it could have been. The car felt good but P12 is the most we could get, and that gives you no points: it's disappointing as we really gave everything we had. The start was bad, the car went into antistall at turn one and it put me at the very back. After that we had good speed but sadly not enough to make it into the top ten. I got stuck behind Kvyat, I felt I was quicker than him in the middle sector but couldn't get a run on him where I could try a pass. We'll try to make more progress in Monza (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/13/monza)."


Antonio Giovinazzi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/58/antonio-giovinazzi): "A disappointing ending to my race: I was pushing a lot to keep within DRS range of Sebastian [Vettel] and the car just snapped on the exit. I was on the limit and when you're there, sometimes mistakes can happen. I feel sorry for the team as they deserved a good result this weekend, and of course also for George [Russell] as his race was compromised as well, although I couldn't do anything about that. There are still some positives I can take from this race: I had another really good start, I made up a few places and I was able to be in a fight with the Ferraris, so we can build on that. Next race up is my home race in Italy, I'll need to reset and be in a better shape for next weekend."

Belgian GP: Race team notes - HaasHaas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) F1 Team drivers Romain Grosjean (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/7/romain-grosjean) and Kevin Magnussen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/33/kevin-magnussen) classified 15th and 17th respectively at the Belgian Grand Prix, held at the Circuit de Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps)-Francorchamps Sunday.



Grosjean started the race, which took place in cool and largely cloudy conditions, 17th on the grid, using Pirelli's P Zero Yellow medium tires. When the Safety Car was called due to a large accident involving Alfa Romeo (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/15/alfa-romeo)'s Antonio Giovinazzi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/58/antonio-giovinazzi) and Williams (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/11/williams)' George Russell (https://www.pitpass.com/67829/drivers/66/george-russell) 10 laps into the 44-lap race Grosjean boxed for the White hard tires. Grosjean kept that set of tires through to the checkered flag and battled Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari)'s Charles Leclerc (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/61/charles-leclerc), falling narrowly short of beating last year's race winner. Grosjean classified 15th.


Magnussen also used the Yellow medium tires for the start and rocketed up the order on the opening lap, surging from 20th to 15th, making more gains than any other driver. Magnussen also boxed for hard tires when the Safety Car was deployed, and he came in again on lap 36 for a switch onto the Red soft rubber. He reached the finish line 17th.

Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) F1 Team maintains ninth in the Constructors' Championship with one point. Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) F1 Team will be back in action for the Italian Grand Prix, to be held at the Autodromo Nazionale Monza (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/13/monza), from September 4 to 6.


Romain Grosjean (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/7/romain-grosjean): "We wouldn't necessarily haven taken P15 this morning, if offered it, but what we would have taken is to be able to fight with Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari). For us, that's a benchmark, and in that aspect we did well. I thought I could keep Charles (Leclerc) behind me, but sadly on the last lap I had a bit of a lock up at turn one - anyway the tires were running out of life. It was fun in that aspect. We did the best behind Vettel and Leclerc; Alfa Romeo (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/15/alfa-romeo) did a good job being in front of them."


Kevin Magnussen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/33/kevin-magnussen): "We needed something to help us today, weather or something, but we didn't get any. I had another good first lap though, I'm really happy about that. But from there we just didn't really have the pace, especially on the first stint on the C3 tire. At the beginning of that stint I was very slow, just overheating the tires. I got that under control later on, then we pitted onto the C2 and it was a little bit like that again - just struggling a bit on the first part of the stint but getting better towards the end. I lost a position at the end when we pitted again. It's been a tough day but there was not much we could do."


Guenther Steiner: "I don't have a lot to say today. It was obviously a disappointing result but not unexpected. This is where we are right now. The only way forward is to get better."

Belgian GP: Race team notes - WilliamsNicholas Latifi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/62/nicholas-latifi) finished 16th in today's Belgian Grand Prix. George Russell (https://www.pitpass.com/67830/drivers/66/george-russell)'s race unfortunately ended in the barrier after being unable to avoid a lose wheel coming across the track from Giovinazzi's car which crashed just ahead.


George started the race 15th on the medium Pirelli tyre, with Nicholas lining up 19th on the same compound. Nicholas pitted twice, stopping on laps 11 and 30, firstly taking on new a set of the hard tyre and then switching back to the medium compound.

Dave Robson, Head of Vehicle Performance: We felt that we had made some progress with our race pace this weekend, but we didn't really get a chance to show it today. Both drivers started well and made places initially but were unable to hang on to them for the first lap. This put both out of position and ultimately meant that George was behind Giovinazzi when he crashed. George was forced to take evasive action but couldn't avoid the debris and ultimately the wall. Although very frustrating, we are relived that nobody was hurt in what could've been a nasty incident.

Following the safety car, we opted to switch Nicholas to a two-stop race and in the final stint he showed good pace despite not being fully happy with the behaviour of his car and was quickly able to catch the cars ahead. When Magnussen pitted, we were able to keep him behind and continue to close on Grosjean and Leclerc. Frustratingly, we caught them on the final lap but didn't get an opportunity to pass.


We learned a lot this weekend that will help us next week in Monza (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/13/monza) and we are keen to get the cars back on the track and continue to push the cars around us.


Nicholas Latifi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/62/nicholas-latifi): Straight from the formation lap and the start of the race I didn't have a good feeling with the car, there was quite an imbalance. The conditions were different compared to the previous days and it was a real challenge out there. I enjoyed the last stint pushing flat out on the edge, chasing Romain and the Ferraris. Overall, it was a very tough race today.


George Russell (https://www.pitpass.com/67830/drivers/66/george-russell): It is frustrating, I was in the wrong place at the wrong time and there was nothing we could do. I went to the left to avoid Antonio's car and then his wheel came from nowhere and hit the front of my car which pushed me into the wall. It was quite a big impact, but I am ok. I feel very fortunate to have the halo on the car as it could have gone quite near my helmet. It was a very unfortunate set of circumstances, but that's just racing sometimes. Up until that point I was in a good rhythm. I had overtaken the Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas), but it would have been a long and difficult race out there for us.

elgian GP: Race team notes - PirelliMercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) driver Lewis Hamilton (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/9/lewis-hamilton) won the Belgian Grand Prix from pole, stopping just once to switch from Yellow medium to White hard tyres on lap 11 under a lengthy safety car period. All three podium finishers used an identical strategy.


The safety car heavily influenced the strategy, with all the drivers apart from two stopping to change tyres. Of the drivers who stopped, only Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull)'s Alex Albon didn't switch to hard for the second stint (instead choosing medium).


The drivers who didn't stop were AlphaTauri (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/16/alphatauri)'s Pierre Gasly (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/53/pierre-gasly) and Racing Point (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/14/racing-point)'s Sergio Perez (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/13/sergio-perez). Gasly was the only driver to start the race on the hard tyre, and he swapped to the medium on lap 26, eventually finishing eighth from 12th on the grid. Perez switched from Red soft to hard after 18 laps, also finishing in the points.


The top four in the race all finished in grid order, with the top nine all having stopped just once under the safety car. Only three drivers stopped twice: Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari)'s Charles Leclerc (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/61/charles-leclerc), Williams (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/11/williams) driver Nicholas Latifi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/62/nicholas-latifi), and Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) driver Kevin Magnussen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/33/kevin-magnussen).

Despite earlier predictions of rain, the race remained dry from start to finish.


Mario Isola: "The safety car dictated the strategy for most drivers today, pushing them towards a longer final stint than was expected on the hard tyre. This meant that they had to manage the compound carefully towards the end of the race in particular, on a notoriously demanding track. However, they all accomplished this perfectly and some drivers also chose a different strategic approach. Pierre Gasly (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/53/pierre-gasly) showed plenty of pace with his unique hard-medium strategy and we also saw Sergio Perez (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/13/sergio-perez) choose not to stop under the safety car and try something different. All three nominated compounds played an important role today, and were well suited to the conditions here at Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps) - one of the biggest tests for tyres of the year."
