McLaren-Mercedes: Lewis Hamilton – “After a month out of the cockpit, I think every driver on the grid is really looking forward to racing on a track like Spa-Francorchamps, which is easily one of the greatest circuits in the world. Spa’s always been one of my favourite tracks – it’s a place where you really feel on the limit, and that’s pretty awesome in a Formula 1 car. I’m already looking forward to my first flying lap on Friday morning…Read Full

Red Bull – “The Spa circuit has everything that a driver dreams of – unbelievably fast corners and slow chicanes, and it can be full of surprises due to the weather. It can be raining one minute and then the sun can be shining the next. The track follows the hills of the Ardennes – and it’s one of my absolute favourites. Eau Rouge and Blanchimont are real highlights…Read Full

FIA – We’re not going to allow DRS to be used through Eau Rouge during practice. We want to avoid drivers going through thinking that their wing is in the right position, when it might not be. We think this is the correct safety measure to have taken at such a fast… Read Full

Sauber: Kamui Kobayashi- “Spa is a very beautiful circuit, and one of my favourites. It has a lot of high speed corners which should suit our car well, because it has a similar average speed to Silverstone. Normally the temperatures are not very hot there, so for the tyres it should not be too difficult. But the weather is always very unpredictable, as it was in Silverstone, at the Nürburgring…Read Full

Pirelli’s Motorsport Director Paul Hembery: “Spa-Francorchamps is one of those legendary names in motorsport, which has become a real icon of the Formula One season. It is a track that tests ultimate commitment, so once again we have to supply tyres that are capable of not only absorbing the colossal forces that they are subjected to on a regular basis, but also of delivering maximum performance in complete safety. In many ways Spa isRead Full


Williams – “There’s no doubt that Spa is one of the great tracks. To do well there, you often need to be looking up as well as down to see what the clouds are doing,” says Williams F1 technical director Sam Michael…Read Full



Mercedes GP: Michael Schumacher“The race in Spa will certainly have a special touch to it this time, as this is where I drove my first ever Formula One race 20 years ago. It’s hard to believe that this was such a long time ago. A lot has changed in those 20 years, but one thing has not… Read Full

HRT: “Spa Francorchamps is every driver’s favourite circuit, because of its high speed nature and the challenge it represents. Our car should be better suited to tracks like this, so I’m really looking forward to it. It’s a bit of an anniversary because on August 28…Read Full 

Virgin: Timo Glock – Race Driver #24“To come back racing in Spa is a perfect way to pick up the rest of the season. It’s one of my favourite races, it’s a fascinating layout and a historical circuit.”… Read Full 

Team-Lotus:  Heikki Kovalainen, Car 20, Chassis T128-04 – “After a really good break in Finland it’ll be good to get back to work. I’m feeling better than ever and it’s always exciting heading to Spa. Eau Rouge is, of course, the corner everyone talks about and while it is still flat out it’s actually not that hard for us now, but it’s still a big thrill. Any corner you take at… Read Full

Force India:  Adrian Sutil – I always say that Spa is my favourite circuit of the year. I just love the place. There’s nowhere else like it and the range of corners feel so impressive in a Formula 1 car. I think all the drivers have a big smile on their face when they come back to Spa… Read More
