FORMULA 1 SHELL BELGIAN GRAND PRIX 2012 |

Spa Francorchamps is everything a grand prix track should be – fast, fearsome and full of atmosphere. Driving through the grey-stone village down to the circuit, the place seems filled with the ghosts of racers past. History can be felt everywhere here, and the circuit retains close links with a road-racing past – although the 14.9km lap has been pruned to 7km. Nevertheless, the terrain is the same, and it’s that undulating asphalt, ploughing through dense forest, that defines its character.

Circuit Length:    7.004 km (4.352 miles)
Race Length: 44 laps, (308.052 km 191.415 miles)
Lap Record: 1:45.108 (K Raikkonen, McLaren-Mercedes, 2004)
