Spa is a track you will get to enjoy as an F1 fan – it hosts the Belgium GP and has produced many great races in recent times, usually due to it’s high speed layout and unpredictable weather!
2008 Spa – Kimi Raikonnen of Ferrari going for 3 or 4 (?) Belgium GPs in a row, versus title challangers Felipe Massa (Ferrari) and Lewis Hamilton (Mclaren).
They run 1st Kimi, 2nd Hamilton and a distant 3rd Massa when the rain comes on. Hamilton quickly closes the gap to Kimi and overtakes by cutting a chicane. The rules state the Mclaren driver must give the position back to Kimi, which he does – but almost immediatly the British driver re-overtakes legitimately on the main straight.
The next sequence is brilliant and highly dangerous – the Mclaren and Ferrari both end up off the track and seem to criss cross each other, almost colliding while driving at 200mph up the Eua Rougue/Radillon and Kemmel Straight hill. Kimi loses control and crashes but Lewis is able to drive the car home to victory*.
*This exiting race was spoilled slightly by the FIA giving Hamilton a penalty for the chicane shortcut incedent.
