Spa 2012 Pregame
Finally, the summer break is concluded and we can get on with the second half of one of the most exciting F1 seasons in recent memory.
Our championship leader, Fernando Alonso has been energized by his third victory at the German Grand Prix, with Lewis Hamilton, Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber nipping at his heels. Thanks to the tight points spread, we are going into the second half of 2012 with that much more excitement built up. This is still very much any drivers championship to be had; with the right combination of skill and luck, several different drivers could emerge with the top honors.
This round is one held in high esteem by both driver and spectator alike. With fabulous turn combinations like Eau Rouge and Raidillon:
Plus legendary rivalries have had pivotal moments at Spa, like Hakkinen v. Schumacher (and some other guy) in 2000.
Three abreast pass by Hakkinen for the win? Yes; Spa has the credentials to make it a much anticipated event on the calendar.
You can be certain to see a follow up story here after this weekend.
Enjoy the race!
