Spa GP this weekend


F1 resumes with Spa this weekend.  After the mid-year four week holiday, F1 returns to one of the best tracks on the calendar – Spa Francorchamps in Belgium, a circuit that everyone enjoys (are you listening, Bernie).

Now we get a real race circuit, with Eau Rouge being the corner for those with big hearts (and large cojones).  Remember Webber’s pass on Alonso around the outside of Eau Rouge last year!  Will Vettel find his form again?  Will Hamilton keep his hot blood in check?  Will Button smooth his way to the top, as there is plenty of chances for rain.  We will know by Sunday night.

The race will start at 7 p.m. our time and we watch from Jameson’s Irish Pub on Soi AR, next to Nova Park.  The big screen is great and the dedicated F1 channel has good commentary with no breaks and no ads.  Come at 6 p.m. for a meal (the Sunday specials are great value) and a drink and discussion and let’s hope for some real racing.

Spa-Francorchamps. Spa-Francorchamps.
