As ever, this year provided us with a thoroughly entertaining Belgian Grand Prix. Over the years there have been some classics held at Spa-Francorchamps, such as 1998, 2000 and most recently 2008 – but this year’s race may have even bettered all of the aforementioned. The race had everything: a chaotic first lap, plenty of overtaking, variable weather conditions and lots of incidents and crashes. I know I found it very exciting, although I was gutted to see Rubens throw away a likely high placed finish on the first lap.
Please share your thoughts on the Grand Prix below.
unfortunately for me I had my dosh on nando and to make matters worse my old mucker flav had his on lewis!
I don’t know, I think 1998 was far more dramatic but it’s certainly one of the Top 5 since I’ve been watching F1.
I don’t think there was one lap in today’s race as exciting as the penultimate lap of the 2008 Belgian GP. But as a whole race, today’s was the best I’ve seen, all it lacked was a bit of a fight for the win.
Best Spas since 1990. 2010 should be a Top 5 if you include all the races at the new Spa.
What about 2008?
If only all tracks were like Spa…
1998 was the best with 2008 those opening laps & the nail biting last few laps in the wet.
damon – oops, missed 2008. it just edges out 2000 for me. 2000 was actually a so-so race other than that pass. :)
Its hard for me to choose, I went to the track in 2008 and experienced it, but 2010 seemed more action packed expecially in the middle of the race . Hmm…
This is a difficult one for me. I find it easier to remember the Belgian Grands Prix that I didn’t find particularly exciting (1994, 2002, 2007) than the ones that were (um… …all the ones after 1994 bar the ones previously mentioned in this post)…
