The Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps is one of motor racing most historic and exciting venues, as its incredible high-speed corners, unpredictable weather and forest setting make it a unique location.
Momentum here is key, as you reach over 200 mph (320 kph) at least 3 times around the circuit and the average lap speed is almost 150 mph (240 kph).
The Belgian Grand Prix has called Spa its only home since 1985, but the circuit first hosted the event back in 1925, with the first F1 race taking place in 1950. The circuit has changed dramatically since the old days, being shortened from 15 km (9 miles) to its current 7 km (4.3 miles) in the 80’s.
Overtaking is easy but maximising your lap requires a lot of practice. This guide will show you how to have the perfect Spa break!
La Source is the first corner on the circuit and getting a good run around it is absolutely crucial to a quick lap time. You’ll be flat out from Turn 1 all the way until the end of the Kemmel Straight, making it the longest flat out zone on the calender, other than Baku’s start-finish straight.
There are two racing lines through La Source, the tight line and the wide line, and both are quick. Personally, I prefer the wide line, as traction is usually better on the outside on exit and it suits a low downforce setup, which I run on this track.
Because there’s two fast lines through this corner, and a DRS zone preceding it, this is an overtaking spot. However, don’t throw the car into a dive-bomb, if you over-extend, you’ll be extremely vulnerable up Kemmel.
Get as far to the left of the track as possible before braking just before the 100m board and down into second gear for La Source. Swing the right lock on the steering and avoid all the kerbs, especially on the outside of exit, as this can ruin your traction.
Traction is better than you’d expect here as it’s downhill on exit, so get back on the power as soon as you’ve straightened up again.
