The first Grand Prix to be held after the compulsory 4 week summer break during which the Teams are barred from performing any development activity on their cars will be held at the infamous Spa – Francorchamp Circuit in Belgium

Over the years Spa has become known for the unpredictable weather at the circuit, which makes a very fast track with several of the most difficult corners in all of Formula One even more challenging.

Last year the Belgium Grand Prix produced an exciting unpredictable race with Giancorlo Fisichella looking as if he was to be able to claim Force Indias first every first place finish after claiming Pole Position during qualifying. Fisichella drove a magnificent race but the Ferrari of Kimi Raikkonen had a speed advantage because of its KERS system and Kimi used that advantage to great effect overtaking Fisichella on one of the long straights.

This year overtaking is going to be much harder with none of the teams using the KERS system, my bet is that it is going to be a race between McLaren and Red Bull. Spa should suit McLAren as it has consistently been one of the fastest cars in a straight line this season and the long straights at Spa should give it an advantage, but Red Bull has not been standing still either and now has an effective F-Duct system adding to their top line speed. Ferrari have also been making huge strides forward in terms of overall performance so they can’t be ruled out completey either.

Lets hope next weeks Grand Prix produces another action packed race, which is usually the case at Spa especially when the weather intervenes.
