The longest circuit on the F1 calendar at 7.004km, the 2021 Belgian Grand Prix will see drivers and teams return from the summer break at the end of August. Although Spa-Francorchamps is half the length it used to be, that hasn’t stopped the track from being one of the drivers’ most beloved circuits.

Formula 1 Belgian Grand Prix 2021

The iconic track was one of seven that made up F1s first championship back in 1950, clocking in at 14.9km in length. Located in the Ardennes region of eastern Belgium, the track underwent changes in 1979, cutting it’s length in half while becoming a hit with drivers and teams alike.

Featuring long straights, sweeping corners and weather that can change in an instant, the track features of several of F1s most famous corners. La Source starts the lap with a tricky U-shape, the slowest corner of the track, while Eau Rouge forces drivers to sweep left and then right while going uphill through Raidillon. The bus-stop chicane, named because this part of the track was open to traffic at certain times, remains a tricky end to the lap.though run-off areas across the circuit have been widened to make the track more forgiving.

Weather has often played a factor in determining the winner of the years, as parts of the track can be dry while rainy and slippery in other sections.
