Yesterday's qualifying sessions were full of intrigue, surprises and thrills. From the early moments of Michael Schumacher's crash, to the very end with a not-so-shocking Vettel pole, we were treated to some weather-induced chaos. Perhaps there will be more on the cards today, as the drivers prepare to race for 44 laps of the Spa-Francorchamps circuit.

The action will begin at 1pm GMT+1 with the Factbyte Factbox starting one hour beforehand to provide all the build up.

Predictions

I feel positive that we have had conversations like this before, but it is another situation where Michael Schumacher is out of position and has a lot of work to do if he wants to scrape a good result today.
