MILESTONE
Located between Liege and Brussels in the Ardennes forest, at 7 kilometres Spa-Francorchamps is the longest circuit on the calendar. Despite some significant modifications over the years from its original 14.9km layout, the current track is still predominantly run on narrow, public roads while following the natural landscape.

Pouhon, Stavelot and Blanchimont are corners synonymous with speed and they're all found here along with undoubtedly the most technically challenging corner for any driver, the Eau Rouge, the only corner in F1 where drivers experience negative G forces. A medium downforce track, with medium tyre and brake wear, it's the engines that experience the greatest demands at Spa.

The weather often has an influence on the outcome of races. The Ardennes region of Belgium seems to have a micro-climate of its own, and such is the circuit's length that it can be raining on one section and dry on another.
