The waiting came to an end this past weekend, when Formula One returned to action around the epic circuit of Spa-Francorchamps. It was a packed weekend, from watching the F1 world road trip their way to Belgium, to Michael Schumacher crashing out in qualifying, to Sebastian Vettel stamping his mark on the championship once more. Here are ten tweets that highlight how this past week has gone.
