Summer’s not over yet, but the Formula 1 summer break of definitely is. Scuderia Ferrari went back to work in full swing this week and now its drivers, Kimi Raikkonen and Sebastian Vettel, are preparing for the race weekend at Spa-Francorchamps, a track that everyone loves.
Four-time Spa winner Kimi Raikkonen comments on the venue for the next round of the 2018 Formula One season: “I really like the layout of this circuit, driving here is great. I preferred the old part of the track, at the Bus stop chicane, but apart from that bit, the circuit hasn’t changed too much. This place always brings good racing, so it’s nice for us and also for the spectators. We’ll see what the weather holds; here it can change very quickly, it might rain in one place and the next corner it can be dry. We’ll need to adapt the best that we can. As any other race it’s a bit of an unknown where we are going to be against the others; we will find out over the weekend and especially on Sunday. We’ll keep doing the same job we have done so far and then we’ll see what the outcome is.” – Scuderia Ferrari Finnish driver Kimi Raikkonen said, as reported by the Maranello team’s official website ahead of the 2018 Belgian Grand Prix.
Kimi Räikkönen is the most successful active driver at the Spa-Francorchamps circuit – he won four of the five races held between 2004 and 2009. Michael Schumacher holds the record for the most wins with six, and Ferrari is the most successful constructor with 16 victories to McLaren’s 14.
