Race prep: Belgium (cont.)

"Well, last year is a little bit of a form card. Obviously, the regulations have changed a lot since then, so let's see how that goes. Clearly, McLaren and Ferrari aren't hanging round as well. Qualifying has tightened up a lot in the last few events and so have the races, as we saw. Silverstone would have been a track where you would think we could have been a bit more competitive or more dominant compared to the high standards we have set around some particular venues around the world and this one you might pick as well. So, find out Sunday night."

Race prep: Belgium

"After a month out of the cockpit, I think every driver on the grid is really looking forward to racing on a track like Spa-Francorchamps, which is easily one of the greatest circuits in the world. Spa’s always been one of my favourite tracks - it’s a place where you really feel on the limit, and that’s pretty awesome in a Formula One car. I’m already looking forward to my first flying lap on Friday morning. Corners like Eau Rouge, Pouhon and Blanchimont are fantastic, just because they’re so fast - Pouhon, in particular, is incredible, because you’re really at the limit of the grip level, and you’re gently playing with the throttle and trying not to scrub off too much speed with the steering. Getting it right is an amazing feeling."

- Lewis Hamilton
