Video 17 - Belgium Preview - F1 gets back to racing at the much-loved Spa-Francorchamps

Published by Mr. C

Following on from the politics and the controversy surrounding the FIA hearing in Paris this week, it'll be good to get back to some racing. Luckily, there's no place better to go racing than the Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium.

After a one year hiatus, the circuit returns to this year's calendar with a revised final chicane and revamped pit-area. Eau Rouge may be flat in a modern F1 car but there are plenty of challenges in store for our drivers, so join Christine as she takes a fantastic roller coaster ride through the Ardennes to see what all the fuss is about.

We also discover what the ING Race Index thinks of this place, as well as taking a look at the championship tables to see how the FIA's verdict on Thursday mixed things up.
