    Maybe the best track in the world?

    I've only driven 3 tracks outside of the U.S., but to me Spa is the best....the location, the track and it's history, very hard to beat.

    Spa is great, but Nordschliefe is far greater, imo.

    He has been doing karting and now he is racing in the F3 championship . 

    Also , he lives close to Nicola Prost , Alain Prost's son . Maybe they are all in contact . It' s a small world around here .

    +1.. certainly my favourite GP track by a mile. The 'ring is a different animal, and I at least leave a bit of a safety margin there. At Spa I can be a bit more committed.

    Definitely the best current GP track - excited to drive there again in October Smiley

    Re: 2017 Belgian F1 Grand Prix at Spa-Francorchamps

    The ring is total different from a track, my personal track top chart is:

     

    1) spa

    2) mugello 

    3) imola

    Re: 2017 Belgian F1 Grand Prix at Spa-Francorchamps

    My preferred tracks to drive on : 

    1) ....      ( I have never done Spa  yet  )

    2) Mugello

    3 ) Imola  , but very close to Mugello

    4) Paul Richard  together with Dijon 

    And then you also have to take the context into the appreciation, which can make a big difference .

    But the best driving experience and pleasure is by far  :  The RING ! 

    The worst to drive on :

    1) Nürburgring F1 track

    2) Hockenheim

    Track record and ties MS for number of poles if I'm not mistaken. Good race to look forward to AFTER the fight tonight. The boxer will win?  Any bets?  Going way off topic but F1 deserves it.

    Would be nice, may join last-minute if the planets line up.

    You should swing past Zürich. There's a few of us here - would be good to have a mini RT meet-up

    Re: 2017 Belgian F1 Grand Prix at Spa-Francorchamps

    Glad to see Ferrari being able to keep up with the Mercs...

    Alonso so angry with his car it almost became comical.

    Verstappen....real pity in front of 'home' crowd.

    Force India...they really need to do something...maybe those 2 go to Vegas and fight it off on the ring? :-)

    Good summary, FI are a danger to the field at this stage, team will have to make drastic changes before someone gets hurt !!!

    Re: 2017 Belgian F1 Grand Prix at Spa-Francorchamps

    Will drive Spa 4th and 5th of October. Hopefully the new engine can hold together this year. But guess I'll need to order a fuel truck full of oil to be able to keep up with the new engines oil consumption. 

    Really love Spa, but don't really agree with Gnil, since I think Hockenheim is quit fun however not close to Spa ( even if a spun a cup car there this year....frown)
