Belgian Grand Prix 2010 | Spa

The Belgian Grand Prix has always been a gold standard venue set in Spa-Francorchamps in the Ardennes hills of Belgium.

In the last ten years only in 2003 and 2006 were there no races.  Of the remaining races of the last decade, Ferrari have won five races and McLaren three.

Last year Kimi Raikkonen won, the previous year Massa and in 2007 Raikkonen again. In '04 and '05 Raikkonen won again and in 2001 and '02 Michael Schumacher.

The weather is notoriously fickle.

So who will take the honours this year?  The circuit favours out and out top speed and very courageous drivers, notably eau rouge bend as it sweeps out of a deep compression and up hill.  The circuit also suits high downforce with its long fast bends.

If Massa is allowed to do so this could be a race where he dominates.
