    Quick check on the weather forecasts just at the minute:
    Today might finally be dry, after all.
    Tomorrow, risk of rain; probably more in the morning than in the afternoon.
    Sunday for the race: it should be sunny, slightly cloudy but no rain expected.
    Spa being Spa, don't be surprised if it changes suddenly and unexpectedly.

    What should be pointed out are the very low temperatures expected during the night from saturday to sunday: sunday morning at about six o'clock, only 6° Celsius expected...so the track itself will be cold.

    I would prefer a dry race, but rain does make things interesting.

    Watch Ricciardos performances drop now, as red bull give max absolute control and leave smiler floundering around with a ‘so-so’ strategy. Hope he doesn’t succumb to it, but it’s dificult to fight against the car every race. Max has to step up from NOW, becuase he needs to let red bull know that letting ricciardo go wasn’t a big mistake cos it could be if max doesn’t hit a rich vein of maturity really quickly to be team leader

    Spa rear wheel spec for Merc, the ribs help transfer heat from the brakes into the tyre.

    I just plainly and simply LOVE that track, even just looking at it: that's a proper Grand Prix circuit!

    The big island got hit bad. Lots of flooding. Lane is on its way to Oahu. It should hit us in about 20 hrs. I'm on the southeast side of the island and right off the bay, so I'll really feel it! I'll be really pissed if my cable goes down and no F1! lol I'm taking things like you Texans do in inclement weather...one day at a time!

    Now back to F1! I see Chuck Calrissian is on track for McLaren. :0

    Drop off is almost normal when leaving a team.
    Decent result important for Max considering he's half Belgian

    More importantly, Hamilton needs new engine but no penalty. How did Merc swing that ?

    According to Motorsport Italy, Ferrari fitted Spec 3 in both Vettel and Kimi‘s car. They are using it in free practice today to test it. Ferrari did not say whether Kimi has a new turbo aswell. If he gets a new turbo, that means a grid penalty for him
