30 August


Virgin Racing gambled on a wet setup for the Belgian Grand Prix...


Spa Francorchamps delivered an exciting race as usual, and the new teams were racing closely throughout the entire race.
The sun was shining while the cars were on the grid, but no sooner had they set off than rain began to fall. The choice whether to stay out or pit for wet tyres was a tricky one, and Timo opted for wets as he had to pit for a new nosecone after taking avoiding action to miss Rubens Barrichello. Lucas, on the other hand, stayed out on slicks.

Belgian Grand Prix


29 August 2010
The Belgian Grand Prix at Spa lived up to all expectations and produced an incident packed race that saw Lotus Racing again finish ahead of their nearest rivals. Heikki Kovalainen recovered from a slow start to finish 16th, and Jarno Trulli crossed the line in 19th, a spin late on dropping him back a few places after he had put in a very strong performance in the constantly changing weather conditions.

Jaime loses his point


Aug 29, 2010
Go on admit it, the Belgian Grand Prix just would not be the same if rain did not have its say on Sunday afternoon and again today, a wet track produced some interesting scenarios, although it has to be said that, even when the track was dry, there were some thrilling fights going on from the top to the bottom of the time sheet. Scuderia Toro Rosso had been hoping for a wet race, but it did not work in our favour quite as much as we had hoped.

Belgian GP: The team reaction


Aug 29, 2010
Car 6 Mark Webber, Finish Position: 2nd, Start Position: 1st
“The start was a mess, it wasn’t ideal to lose that many positions, but fortunately it’s not Monaco or Barcelona where the positions often don’t change during the race. I was able to overtake a few guys on the first few laps and get some of the positions back – I knew the race would be quite long after that and to get second place was a good result. It was very challenging in the last part of the Grand Prix and it was difficult to keep the car on track. I can’t believe the top three qualifiers finished on the podium with all the changing conditions! It was a good day for me. It was unfortunate for the team that we didn’t get some more points, but we’re still leading the Constructors’ Championship and hopefully we will do in Monza.”

2010 BELGIAN GRAND PRIX


SUNDAY 29/08/10
JAIME MAKES A POINT
Franz Tost: “A fantastic Formula 1 race from start to finish, with some great battles throughout the field and then, as usual in Spa, the rain played its part, coming and going, causing some interesting scenarios. Both our drivers made a good start, but unfortunately, Buemi was hit by someone which damaged his left rear tyre and he had to pit and then he lost more time coming in for the intermediate tyres. We assume that the collision also damaged his floor, which compromised his performance for the rest of the race. Jaime drove a good race, however his first stop for intermediates was unnecessary, but everyone can be clever with hindsight.

SPA-FRANCORCHAMPS, 29 AUGUST
An action-packed and exciting Belgian Grand Prix in Spa today saw MERCEDES GP PETRONAS drivers Nico Rosberg and Michael Schumacher come home in sixth and seventh places to score valuable points for the team.
The mixed weather conditions benefitted the pair as they stayed out on their dry tyres before switching to intermediates on lap 34 when the heaviest rain shower of the afternoon arrived. With Michael in sixth position and Nico just two places behind, Nico had the better of the re-start under the safety car on lap 41, and made up two places overtaking Michael and Kobayashi.

AT&T Williams Belgian Grand Prix Race.


SUNDAY 29 AUGUST, 2010
After demonstrating pace on track and confident weather management from the pitwall on Saturday, race day did not run so smoothly for the AT&T Williams team. Rubens was an early casualty on the opening lap; as the sole top ten runner starting the race on the harder prime tyre, he hit a wet patch of track under braking into turn 18, colliding with Alonso’s Ferrari and retired early with car damage from his 300th race. Team-mate Nico Hulkenberg took up the mantle, but before the first pitstop window, lost full throttle control which triggered a series of difficult pitstops, challenging car control in changeable weather and constant revisions to tyre plans on the pitwall. Despite a number of considered gambles to retrieve position, he finished a difficult day in P14.

2010 BELGIAN GRAND PRIX


SATURDAY 28/08/10
“…the team did a very good job…”
Jaime Alguersuari: “Q1 was a nightmare, but it was the same for everyone I guess. We had to come in and switch to intermediate tyres, in very slippery conditions. But it was just enough to get into Q2 and try again in similar conditions. Then later on the slick tyres, I had a strong feeling of confidence from the car, because this weekend the car balance has been quite good as we have worked well over the two days. On my last run, Turns 13 and 14 were still slippery so although I pushed as hard as I could for most of the lap, I backed off a bit at these two points and that’s where I lost all my time, which meant I was not going to make Q3. To be honest, I never expected to be this high up the order, so I hope it rains again tomorrow, which will suit us well.”

Belgian GP - Qualifying lottery in the rain

null
Spa-Francorchamps, 28 August – If you had to pick a circuit at which to have a less than satisfactory qualifying session, then Spa would definitely be one of them, partly because this fantastic track provides real overtaking opportunities and also because the weather gods are unlikely to let the race pass without wishing to have their say at some point. The story of today’s three qualifying sessions is a tale of chaos and intermittent rain, with Felipe Massa securing a spot on Row 3 of the grid in sixth place and Fernando Alonso will start from Row 5 in tenth spot.

Jarno Trulli just missed out on Q2 after yellow flags at the end of an action packed Q1 forced him to back off, robbing him of the chance of joining his team-mate in the afternoon's second session.

Here's what the drivers and team management made of the day's events in Spa...


Car 6 Mark Webber (Position: Pole): “Spa is certainly a great venue to get pole – it’s a very special track. I was very happy with my first lap in Q3, but you never know in the current company if it’s enough. You get to the finish and wait for Ciaron (Mark’s engineer) to come on the radio and say ‘P...?’ and you’re thinking ‘what is it?’. At that point the lap was enough, but then you have to do it again. You get another set of tyres and see how you go. We had a rain shower, which spiced things up and made it hard for people to improve. Lewis did a pretty good job to improve to P2 at the end when La Source was a bit greasy. I’m pleased to be on pole and tomorrow’s race is going to be interesting, I don’t think the race will be won on the first lap. I’m looking forward to it.”

Weather: mainly wet track, 18-20°C air, 17-26°C track
After a totally wet practice in the morning with some heavy downpours, the second free practice for the Belgian Grand Prix was held in mixed conditions. About half way through the second 90 minute session the drivers were changing from full wet tyres to intermediates, and in the end the conditions were even okay for slicks. Both cars and drivers performed well and the cars carried two more sponsor logos than in the last race four weeks ago – Burger King and new partner, Mad Croc.

Spa-Francorchamps, Friday August 27
MARTIN WHITMARSH Team principal, Vodafone McLaren Mercedes
“The weather made things interesting, if challenging, today. Both our drivers were forced to conserve wet tyres in the expectation of needing them later in the weekend, which limited our running. However, they were satisfied with the balance of their cars – although in these conditions it’s almost impossible to establish competitiveness relative to rivals. So, overall, I guess I’ll just say that we’re pleased to end the day with two undamaged cars!”

Sam Michael, Technical Director
With wet running in both of today’s practice sessions, we had to re-prioritise the test items we had on our list, but the rain would have affected all of the teams today. This is Spa as well, so we're used to it here! There’s a reasonable chance that the remainder of the weekend will be wet, so we were also saving tyres throughout the day. We are now working on strategy and our ideal qualifying and race set-up.

Eric Boullier: “Ready to fight until the end of the season”


Eric, let’s look back on Budapest where both R30s qualified in the top ten and showed good pace over the weekend. Were you satisfied with the performance of the car?
It was very good to see the relative pace of the car and to see both drivers qualify in the top ten. However, the outcome of the race was a mixed one because we missed the chance to get both cars in the top six. Also, we are here to fight everyone and it’s clear that Red Bull are still much quicker than us. So we know that we still have a lot of hard work ahead to improve our pace if we want to fight with them.

Robert Kubica: “We want to get back to scoring regular points”


Spa is a unique circuit - what challenges does it present?
Spa is quite different to all the other circuits we run at because, although we use lower downforce levels similar to Canada, this circuit has many more high-speed corners. That makes it tricky to balance the downforce level with getting good top speed, which you need because there are two very long sections at the start and end of the lap, where you spend a long time at full throttle. Often, this is a circuit that throws up some surprises, and suddenly cars that haven’t been quick all year can be good in Spa. From the team’s point of view, we will be running the f-duct for the first time this weekend, and we hope it will work straight away so that we have as much practice time as possible to extract the maximum performance from this system.

It was a very satisfying weekend. We thought that we would be quick because our car works well on this sort of track. The car was easy to drive and I found a good balance with my engineers so that I could get the most from the car. It was a weekend where everything came together; we improved step-by-step; and I didn’t make any mistakes. It was nice to begin the summer break after a race like that.

Going to Spa to keep the momentum


Twenty six days after the Hungarian Grand Prix, the sound of Formula 1 engines will be heard once again this Friday, echoing around the Ardennes, as the World Championship resumes after its summer break, with round 13, the Belgian Grand Prix. This year’s event will be its fifty fifth running, the forty third at Spa Francorchamps, with the first Grand Prix dating back to the start of the Formula 1 World Championship in 1950. Scuderia Ferrari has won here sixteen times and even if the sport moves so quickly that past form is not really a pointer to what might happen this year, the Prancing Horse can face the weekend with confidence, arriving in Belgium on the back of a hat-trick of Spa wins, courtesy of Kimi Raikkonen in 2007 and ’09 and Felipe Massa in 2008. The Brazilian also finished second in 2007, one place ahead of Fernando Alonso, for whom this was his best finish here.

Spa-Francorchamps, Friday 20 August 2010
After a four week break, the Formula 1 Championship gets underway again at the fast, hilly and twisty track of Spa-Francorchamps. Hispania Racing, HRT F1 Team is well prepared for the historical Belgian Grand Prix. The circuit in the Belgian Ardennes has the nickname of ‘roller coaster’ and is 7.004 km in length, making it the longest layout of the Formula 1 calendar. The most famous part of this circuit is the ‘Eau Rouge’, which is taken in sixth gear at 300 km/h and where the drivers have to race down a straight before crossing the stream and being launched up a very steep hill through a blind corner. Spa-Francorchamps is a circuit that really demonstrates the importance of the drivers’ skills.

Hungaroring, 1 August 2010 - Fernando Alonso produced a sensational drive to finish second in the Hungarian Grand Prix, while Felipe Massa delivered a faultless performance on his return to the Hungaroring, finishing where he started in fourth place. In fact, the thirty points the Scuderia takes into the summer break is probably slightly more than expected, given the week long dominance of the Red Bulls, who finished first and third courtesy of Mark Webber and Sebastian Vettel.

“Not an easy Grand Prix today. We knew the start was crucial, especially at a venue like this where it’s difficult to overtake. I knew I would be on the back foot fighting with Sebastian and Fernando at the start. I settled into the first stint, but then it was a chess game as to how we would jump Ferrari. The safety car opened up the race and we went off strategy and did something completely different to Fernando. When the safety car came out and I was told to stay out I hoped Fernando would go in to pit.

A problem with the nut on the right rear wheel saw the wheel come loose as Nico went down the pitlane and led to his retirement.

Despite sustaining some injuries, he returned to resume duties on the pitcrew for the second tyre stop of the afternoon, following a precautionary visit to the medical centre. Having started on the prime tyre, the early Safety Car effectively neutralised Rubens’ race plan and he was forced to run a long first stint, but in a courageous move on new options tyres, he claimed P10 for the last point of the day.
