Formula 1 2014 Belgian Grand Prix

Recommended Posts



So, F1 is back this weekend at Spa! The forecast as always talks about cold weather and rain (Saturday only at the moment). Do you think Williams will challenge Mercedes? With a low downforce setup, how dominant will the Mercedes engines be?

Williams have been going down hill for a few races now so i'm thinking it will be a battle between Mercedes, RBR and Ferrari.

So to score points, they drop Kobayashi for a 32-year old making his F1-debut.


Colin Kolles up to his old shady tricks again.

Williams won't get close to Mercedes. Let's face it, the only time they've been distinctly close to them is Austria, basically because it's a track full of straights and slow speed corners. Aerodynamic performance in the high speed stuff is their weakness, and that will give Mercedes a buffer at Spa.

No, I don't like MotoGP. I'll look it up now though.

Enjoy ! Never been to Spa but if it's anything like Silverstone you'll have to be there very early (obvious , but anyway). Good luck.

I can't like MotoGP too because like half of the field is using bikes suited for SuperBikes but with Soft tires.

My dad went to Spa in 2012 and camped along the  back straight after Eau Rouge. He only woke up on the Formation Lap.

Looks like Lotterer does have some sponsorship backing after all, in the form of energy drinks company "Hype". So expect the car to look like this!


What's even more hilarious, is that Hype has been owned by none other than Bertrand Gachot.

So, a German sports car racer debuts at Spa and is backed by a company owned by a driver whose own imprisonment resulted in the debut of another German sports car driver 23 years ago at the same track.

Small world.

It's going to be the best looking car on the grid if they do use it :)
