Qualifying from Belgium // Formula 1 World Championship 2014

Published by Christine

The first qualifying session since the summer break sees our drivers take on the tricky track of Spa-Francorchamps. Getting a good lap involves sweeping through Eau Rouge, both a highlight and a challenge. Mercedes have, of course, been on top form so far this weekend, although it was a Williams on top for final practice this morning. Maldonado has spent some time crashing, whilst Red Bull have had some reliability gremlins as they attempt to close the gap to the championship leaders. Who'll be on pole position? Will it be a new face, or are we looking at Hamilton versus Rosberg - the rematch?
