The Belgian Grand Prix will kick-start the third triple header of races on the F1 2020 calendar this season.


After a whizz around Austria (twice) and Hungary, following a couple of spins around Silverstone and a jaunt to Spain, the calendar will take teams across to Belgium next.

The intimidating, iconic mound of Eau Rouge awaits drivers. The most thrilling corner on the tour regularly coaxes cars into hitting speeds just short of 190mph, a mind-scrambling pace while also attempting to bend right and stay on the track.

Lewis Hamilton will relish the chance to tackle Belgium once again as he continues to exert his dominance over the field.

The Mercedes driver has been impeccable for most of 2020 so far, though Red Bull ace Max Verstappen has frequently disrupted a one-two for the German manufacturer.

Verstappen has been a constant thorn in Valtteri Bottas' side so far and will hope to beat out the Finn and take a genuine shot at Hamilton as the season approaches an initial halfway point.

Racing Point will hope to continue their impressive gains in recent week, while Ferrari will hope the worst of Sebastian Vettel's form is behind him after an improved display in Barcelona.
