2011 Belgian Grand Prix Preview


12th of 19 Rounds of the FIA Formula One World Championship, 26-28 August 2011

Circuit
Spa-Francorchamps / 7.004 km
Race distance
44 laps / 308.052 km
Schedule
Qualifying and Race at 14:00 hrs local time (12:00 hrs GMT)

To  date Spa will be the lowest downforce level the teams have run, with a lap of slightly over seven kilometres it is the longest track of the season . A lot will depend on the weather conditions, because they are very unpredictable. As always in Spa, teams have to monitor the weather closely over the weekend. The circuit itself is very popular with the drivers, and a great place to engineer a car. The track is primarily high speed with long straights and well known corners.  The Pirelli tyres are the soft and the medium compounds. Teams are aware from Silverstone that the soft tyre works well with the high speed corners, but teams have some work to do with the medium compound
