“Racing has always been a big part of my life. It’s my passion. All the work I put in is to become the best. I am a competitor and will not rest till I get what I am after.”
Belgium's Spa-Francorchamps circuit is among the most historic on the Formula One calendar. It remains the longest circuit on the calendar. Its mix of long straights and challenging fast corners, coupled with its picturesque setting, means that most drivers still rank it among their favourite tracks.
The weather is still notoriously changeable (it can often be simultaneously raining on one part of the track and dry on another) and Eau Rouge, with its high speed and sudden elevation change, maintains its reputation as one of Formula One racing's most technically demanding corners.
Spa itself is the obvious place to go out when at the Grand Prix. With its many outdoor cafes and restaurants, it is full of charm. It even has a Casino.
Liege is another possible destination and it has lots of bars and restaurants to suit all tastes and budgets. The coal mining town of Blegny is also worth a visit. The pits are now closed, allowing visitors to go underground to see what life was like for miners.
