F1 Belgian Grand Prix 2018 - Where to watch? Online Live stream, Start time, TV coverage, Weather Forecast and Track info Spa
The grueling Formula One calendar makes its next stop this weekend at the historic Spa circuit in Belgium. The drivers will be fresh from a mid-season break and head to the Belgian Grand Prix knowing full well that the fun well and truly starts now.
At the halfway stage, Lewis Hamilton leads the driver's standings with 213 points, ahead of Sebastian Vettel in second place, just 24 points behind. Hamilton excelled at the Hungarian Grand Prix last time out and will be hoping that his momentum is ongoing as he looks to take top spot yet again at Spa.
Hamilton won at this circuit last year en route to another memorable World Championship title and while Mercedes do enter as favourites, they would be well aware of the pace of the two Ferraris who put on a show during testing at Hungary recently. Sebastian Vettel has something to prove too, after being criticised for throwing away possible victories in recent races and sometimes being off the pace as compared to his teammate Kimi Raikkonen.
Force India will also contest this race amid all the drama surrounding the takeover of the team and would be more than pleased if their drivers can come up with the goods and pick up some crucial points. It will also be a special race for one Fernando Alonso who recently announced his retirement from F1 so don't be surprised if McLaren end up throwing some surprises of their own.
