With the season's four-week summer break drawing to a close, Formula 1 is back this weekend with the Belgian Grand Prix at Spa-Francorchamps.

Last year's race will go down in F1 history as one of the sport's most infamous Grands Prix, as heavy rain prevented any racing laps from being completed, with the sum total of the day's action being two laps behind the Safety Car.

In what was F1's shortest race ever in its 73-year history, the results were taken from Saturday's qualifying session, meaning Max Verstappen was adjudged the winner of the truncated event, with George Russell second and Lewis Hamilton third.

Will Verstappen further increase his commanding 80-point lead at the top of the 2022 Drivers' Championship in this year's race, or will Ferrari and Charles Leclerc fight back?

And with grid penalties expected for several drivers, can any of the midfield runners fight their way to the front?

When is the 2022 Belgian GP?

The 2022 Belgian Grand Prix will be staged across the weekend of 26-28 August.

There will be the usual format in place, with two practice sessions held on Friday, followed by FP3 and qualifying on Saturday, and the main event on Sunday.

How many laps is the Belgian GP?

The race will take place over 44 laps of the 7.004-kilometre Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps, with a maximum race time of two hours if there are any stoppages or delays.

What time does the Belgian GP start?

Sunday's Belgian Grand Prix will start at 15:00 local time (14:00 BST).
