Thumbs up F1: Belgian GP '20

last year nobody left the track with nice feelings especially people who were close with Hubert.. it can be nice to remember this young and fast guy died on track..




-----


this race it ll be the first race after FIA bans using multiple engine maps during the race.. we ll see what sort of things this ll change on 30th.. here is the last years race day highlights..



for Belgian GP '20 program here..

and here is a side to side comparison with Leclerc's last years quali lap vs. Porsche 919 Evo lap.. actually this lap is slower than 919's fastest lap.. 919 is like 0.8s faster than last years quali lap of Leclerc's.. but better to keep in mind that 919 have no regulation limitations.. its a fantasy car..

I hear ya. The only English options I have are ESPN and F1TV and both are Crofty/Brundle commentary. There's no way I can tolerate ads interrupting the race on ESPN so I have to go with F1TV.

This will be the first race without the Party-Mode . I'm very curious to see how that will go during the QF and further in the race .

Hockenheimring 2019 repeat?
As for the cars: The Merc's high output engines will not like the rain and more importantly the low rake floor isn't ideal for standing water. Ferrari will not have a problem with engine output and the high rake will benefit them but the low downforce means aquaplaning chances are higher. RB, RP, and Renault will be in a good position.
For the drivers: Max always shines in the rain. HAM is 99% perfect in the rain. BOT is yet to show a good performance in rain. Perez has a good car and he's generally good when it's wet. Seb had good performances in the rain but he also had miserable mistakes. Leclerc was really fast in Spa in F2 and qualified in pole 7 tenths up on P2.
So it should be a good race as there's a mix of good/better cars with good/better drivers. Let's just hope that Qualy is wet too?

Saturday QF => 50% chance of rain showers .
Sunday Race => 80% chance of light rain .
