It will be in the wet. This is Spa! One off the best...

With the weather that we have here now it could get interesting. Two weeks off warm temps (maybe even a bit too warm for Belgium) and now the last week is combined with alot off clouds suddenly passing by and sometimes rain out, sometimes not. Temps aren't dropping realy though.

And then you have a real micro climate on the track in Spa too...

Only some days away, hupla!

Raikone loves Spa, and he set a fastest laptime to there...

This will be interesting, one off the best weekends in F1 i reckon!! :)
Probably a personal thing though... :clap:

Badoer would be still 20th in wet aswell, he finished 10th because at the start of that practice session there was no rain, and first 10 finishers made times in drier conditions. So he is still veeeery bad :neutral:

This one came from Vitantonio Liuzzi, but I've just read an interview with Fisichella and he said Ferrari didn't call him.

Edit: I just noticed the one with Fisichella is older, so noone knows..

I don't know if you can find an english version, I read these interviews on f1hirek.hu which is hungarian.
