Stand by for the same thing next week, but worse! It's expected to be hotter, increasing tire wear and the tires will all be one grade softer, in order to change things up a little, also increasing tire wear. 2 stops are expected and may be mandated by the FIA.

I'm all for changing things up a little, but the organizers lack imagination. I hope they can adopt some type of Balance of Performance (BOP) rules like used in IMSA sports car racing. Add a few kilos here, change fuel capacity there, reduce air intake size. They do a great job of keeping competition high when car designs vary so much. It's a marvel that F1 cars made by different groups end up being so close, but something should be done to fix the tiers which exist now.

Martin Brundle discussed running the races in reverse direction for variety, but said it was impractical because all the run-off areas and crash barriers would be positioned wrong.

Leclerc did a suberb job in the crappy Ferrari. Vettel's season has gone from bad to worse.

Hülkenberg's last pit stop seemed unnecessary...

With the Hulk available I don't know why Racing Point's talking with Vettel whose best days it seems are in the rear view mirror.

Ferrari has sunk to even new lows. It must be embarrassing to be passed by an Alfa Romeo (with a Ferrari engine)

Just when you think F1 races couldn't be more boring, F1 at Spa happens.

I'd still rather watch a race at Spa than a group of restrictor plated engines cruising around waiting for the 'Big One'.
