Belgium, Spa - August 31st - September 2nd - 2001

About the Belgian GP

The Spa-Francorchamps circuit is still the most challenging circuit on the calendar, and the Belgian Grand Prix is normally scene of good racing. Its hilly nature with the awesome Eau Rouge is still a favourite amongst most drivers, as well as fans who flock there from all over the world. The weather never fails to throw up surprises, and a good qualifying performance is required to secure the ideal grid position. Last year’s race was notable following Mika Hakkinen’s excellent win, which included one of the best overtaking moves of all time when he passed Michael Schumacher into Les Combes.

Set up

Downforce settings need to be medium to low to promote high speeds on Spa’s long straights. An all round balance is essential to be competitive on this challenging layout.
