From a driver's perspective it's a spectacular circuit and the fans there also make it a truly special place. It's a place at which I won when I was in Formula 3000, but never in Formula 1. I've enjoyed some really exciting battles there, and I'm looking forward to this weekend for some more.
One of the sport’s true greats, Spa-Francorchamps has offered some of F1’s most dramatic occasions. We’re at full throttle for longer here than any other race, and the Ardennes forest setting is a location that often comes with an unpredictable climate.
First of all, I must thank Fernando and Jenson for their professionalism throughout the weekend. It’s most disappointing to us that we couldn’t meet their expectations, or those of the team and the fans, who had been waiting for the updates to produce results.
