The FIA will police track limits at three corners across the 7.004km Spa-Francorchamps circuit for this weekend's Belgian Grand Prix.

Turn 4 at Raidillon, Turn 9 and Turn 19 at the Bus Stop chicane will all be monitored for track limits throughout the event.

Just like previous events, any driver who goes off the track at any of these corners will have their lap time deleted during practice and qualifying.

Due to Turn 19 being the final corner on the circuit, the following lap will also be invalidated due to the possibility of carrying extra speed to start the next lap.

In the race, the drivers will be shown the black-and-white flag if all four wheels leave the track three times, unless those occasions include being forced off, with any further offences being reported to the stewards.
