Everything you need to know about the Belgian Grand Prix

Round 13 - Belgian Grand Prix - July 28th - 30th


The Spa-Francorchamps circuit was built in 1921, when Jules de Thier and Henri Langlois van Ophem designed a circuit between Francorchamps, Malmedy, and Stavelot, using public roads and a huge part of the Ardennes forest. The track was initially 14.9 km long but it was later redesigned and redeveloped in 1979, and, even though only half of the initial layout is still used, the circuit remains the longest one in the Formula 1 calendar.

The Spa-Francorchamps circuit is one of F1's most classic destinations, with several great drivers excelling on Belgian soil, breaking records and leaving memorable moments. The drivers love the track, as its perfect combination between long straights and demanding, high speed corners, allows them to really find the limits of their car. Mixed conditions are very likely, as the Ardennes forest has its own microclimate, which means that it could be dry on one part of the track, and soaking wet on some other. Grip relies a lot on the weather, as it's expected.
