The Belgian Grand Prix is the first race after the three-week summer break. Who will return in winning form at the Circuit De Spa-Francorchamps?

Every team would have head back to their respected camps and strategised to the best of their abilities the remaining season and especially the Belgium Grand Prix. 

The track Circuit De Spa-Francorchamps is symbolic on the calendar for being a complete mix of speed, endurance and challenging terrain. It is the longest circuit on the calendar and one of the most beloved by the drivers. 

F1 Standings


The Lewis Hamilton vs Jos Verstappen rivalry is still hotly contested, and many punters are looking forward to the two once again locking horns through out the track. 

Hamilton holds a slim eight-point lead on the driver’s standings after finishing second in the previous Hungarian Grand Prix. Verstappen finished in 9th which cost him the top spot. 

The previous year it was a Mercedes 1 and 2, with Hamilton winning comfortably. Valtteri Bottas finished 8 seconds behind, and Verstappen came home in 3rd. 

Team Standings


Mercedes - 303 Points


Hamilton and Bottas once again lead the German team at the halfway mark. The lead is slim however and Mercedes is by no means a lock to win their 8th Constructors Championship in a row. 

Red Bull Honda Racing - 291 Points


Max Verstappen has had an incredible start to the year and has the F1 world buzzing as the first genuine contender to take Hamilton’s throne. Sergio Perez has also performed well in his first year for Red Bull despite his seat being hotly contested all season.

Ferrari - 163 Points


After a shocking year last season, Ferrari have found consistent form dominating the Mid-Tier battle. Both Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz have pushed up the order even finishing in the podium’s multiple times. 

McLaren Mercedes - 163 Points


McLaren were tipped to lead the midfield battle if not steal a win or two from the leaders. No Grand Prix wins yet for the season, but Daniel Riccardo and Lando Norris would be happy with being up the front of the midfield. Norris especially has had an incredible season to date. 

Alpine Renault - 77 Points


F1’s French Team has improved with their blend of young and old this season. Veteran Ferando Alonso has slotted nicely yet all eyes on Esteban Ocon as he is coming off his first Grand Prix win for his career. 

AlphaTauri Honda - 68 Points


Red Bull’s second team have been incredibly consistent as they remain the only team to have scored at least 1 point across all Grand Prix’s so far. Pierre Gasly has fought well to prove he is a top tier driver and rookie Yuki Tsunoda has impressed all as he too has competed for points all year. 

Aston Martin Mercedes - 48 Points


It has not been a smooth return to Formula 1 for Aston Martin. The team has lacked consistent results all season from drivers Lance Stroll and Sebastian Vettel. The 4-time champion has managed a podium result for the team which is a start.  

Williams Mercedes - 10 Points


It has been a great start for Williams considering where they have been for the last few seasons. With George Russell being marked an elite driver in the works and Nicholas Latifi finally scoring his first points for the team last Grand Prix. 

Alfa Romeo Racing Ferrari - 3 Points


Disappointingly, Alfa Romeo have not made the right strides that many predicted. Former Champion Kimi Raikkonen and Young gun Antonio Giovinazzi have struggled to break through and gather consistent points for the Italian Team. 

Haas Ferrari - 0 Points


The American Team went back to the drawing board this season and were tipped to be at the bottom. The two rookie drivers Mick Schumacher and Nikita Mazepin have made the best of a bad situation and are racking up as much experience for their team and their own careers.

Verdict

Lewis Hamilton has a chance to become a back-to-back Belgium Grand Prix winner. The last Belgium back-to-back winner was Kimi Raikkonen in 2005.
 
Ferrari and McLaren sit tied in the constructor’s championship and have traded places all season. The once strong rivalry looks set to reignite as both teams prepare for Sunday.
 
Expect Aston Martin to come out of the break with a point to prove. The team were expected to charge up the standings, not plummet down. Although unlikely, Alpine and Esteban Ocon could make it back-to-back Grand Prix wins as they are coming off the Hungary Win.

But this should be all about Hamilton.
