Spa from the sky: Located in the Ardennes forest of Belgium, Spa-Francorchamps is one of the greatest racing tracks of the world. Fast and challenging, with daunting Eau Rouge as the main attraction for both drivers and fans, it is no wonder legends like Clark, Senna and Schumacher won here multiple times. Raikkonen has raced to victory in the last three Belgian Grands Prix.

Dan Gurney’s Eagle flew in the forest in 1967 for a historic win. The late Phil Hill took the win here for Ferrari on his way to the 1961 World Championhship.
The first Grand Prix at Spa, the European in 1925, was won by Antonio Ascari in the Vittorio Jano designed Alfa Romeo P2. The now famous Spa 24 hours race was inaugurated in 1924.
The Spa 1000km sports car race in 1985 claimed the life of young rising German star Stefan Bellof.
