Red Bull on Pole again! -Spa Belgium Grand Prix 2010

This is one race I wanted to be at today! Alas, late/lack of planning meant no Spa and will be watching it in the dry on TV!

Has anyone been to Spa-Francochamps? If so, would love to hear of your experiences and viewing points. Maybe something I'll get round to going to some other year.

Anyway, back to today's race another Red Bull on pole (Webber) at Spa-Franchchamps, Belgium in ever changing weather conditions.

2010 FORMULA 1 BELGIAN GRAND PRIX
Pos No Driver Team Q1 Q2 Q3 Laps
1 6 Mark Webber RBR-Renault 1:57.352 1:47.253 1:45.778 21
2 2 Lewis Hamilton McLaren-Mercedes 1:56.706 1:46.211 1:45.863 18
3 11 Robert Kubica Renault 1:56.041 1:47.320 1:46.100 19
4 5 Sebastian Vettel RBR-Renault 1:58.487 1:47.245 1:46.127 23
5 1 Jenson Button McLaren-Mercedes 1:57.981 1:46.790 1:46.206 18
6 7 Felipe Massa Ferrari 1:58.323 1:47.322 1:46.314 20
7 9 Rubens Barrichello Williams-Cosworth 1:55.757 1:47.797 1:46.602 19
8 14 Adrian Sutil Force India-Mercedes 1:58.730 1:47.292 1:46.659 18
9 10 Nico Hulkenberg Williams-Cosworth 1:55.442 1:47.821 1:47.053 20
10 8 Fernando Alonso Ferrari 1:57.023 1:47.544 1:47.441 21
______________________________________________
[V11 3 Michael Schumacher Mercedes GP 1:56.313 1:47.874 16
12 4 Nico Rosberg Mercedes GP 1:54.826 1:47.885 16]

V -Note Schumacher who finished just out the Top 10 will be staring in 21st position taking a 10 place drop penalty after his incident with Barichello from last race.

RAIN Predicted in todays race so should be eventful, anyone could win, and I mean anyone, Spa is very challenging circuit and the weather is always unpredictable! Should be fun!!

Thanks for giving that info. Thank goodness we had watched the recording of qualifying before reading this.

Re: Red Bull on Pole again! -Spa Belgium Grand Prix 2010

Woah, YES What a Race!

Oh so much can happen in a race.....thanks to the rain....and .....

Vettel! Oh Vettel!! (do like him, but he's got a lot to learn especially his over taking manoevres)

Schumacher made up 14 places he started in 21st position and finished 7th!! That's schumi getting back into is old form again...may see the rain-master emerge in 2011.

Result (assume everyone's watched it by now)...

Wasn't Vettel also the cause of another accident in Sunday's race??

Not sure about cause of another accident but yes, after Vettels incident (accident) with Button (which took Button out of the race) around lap 16-17, Vettel touched with Liuzzi (FORCE INDIA) after over taking him in the chicane.


So..an eventful race for Vettel with no points scored for himself and also for Button and also Alonso scored zero points as he spun off much later when the rain started in the final few laps of the race.

Re: Red Bull on Pole again! -Spa Belgium Grand Prix 2010

Hi Newhorizon

I have been to Spa when I was part of the pit crew for a TVR Sagaris in the Britcar Series it was a 4 hour endurance race and we won. The view from where I was was great as we were in the old pits on the straight before eau rouge corner its a fantastic circuit but the rain came down like six inch nails.

I will find some photos and upload them.

Mike

Awesome!
The view and action from Eau Rouge or La Source must be fantastic...
