The Spa Francorchamps circuit in the picturesque Ardennes region of Belgium remains one of F1’s few remaining classic circuits. Considered by many to be the best circuit on the F1 calendar, Spa has the longest lap length of all, and is certainly one of the most scenically beautiful, surrounded by wooded hills and small farms. It is also renowned for its changeable weather; it is not unknown for one half of the track to be streaming wet and the other under hot, blue skies.
Both Scuderia Ferrari drivers have reasons to be confident in the 2018 edition of the event. Spa-Francorchamps is one of those tracks that allows a driver to exhibit skill and fire his adrenalin. Detractors — particularly those pushing for Ferrari to help the younger generation come through, will tell you that Kimi Raikkonen had his last win for Ferrari at this track way back in 2009, but such a statistic could be turned on its head by pointing out that Spa happens to have provided more wins (4) for Kimi than anywhere else.
Follow us later in the afternoon for the latest updates and results from the Circuit De Spa-Francorchamps, as the 2018 Belgian Grand Prix is about to get underway, with Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen at the wheel of the SF71H, ready to challenge Mercedes for the win.
