Formula 1 2018 Belgian Grand Prix
August 24-26, 2018

Belgium’s Spa-Francorchamps circuit is among the most historic, hosting its first (non- championship) Grand Prix in 1924. The longest circuit on the calendar, it is one of the most popular venues with drivers and fans alike. Boasting high speed and sudden elevation change, it is one of Formula One’s most technically demanding tracks.

Taking place on narrow public roads, it is notoriously difficult and dangerous, proven by the fact that only six men have won the race more than twice.
