F1 carnival moves to Spa after a 1 month break!

29 Aug

Truly a driver’s circuit, Spa Francorchamps, along with Monaco is one of the most awaited race of the season. Senna, Schumacher and Kimi have been the most successful racers here and we’ll know soon enough if Kimi can add a fifth Spa victory and first of this season in his resume!

The 7.004 kms circuit which the drivers have to race or 44 laps is very unique. Even though the circuit has been shortened then the original, it quite hasn’t lost its flavor. It still has the legendary Eau Rouge, the la Source hairpin, the run down the Kemmel straight or the run down Blanchimont to the bus stop chicane along with variable altitudes, the forest and variable weather!

Add to this a one month break and 2012 Formula1 season and it couldn’t get any better. Pirelli have tried to do their best to allow the racing decide the winner. They are bring the Medium and Hard compounds although the intermediates and full wets could be the most required ones.
