F1 Blog’s Belgian Predictions

Posted by Carrot on August 26, 2011 | No Comments

Carrot’s Predictions

  • Belgian Grand Prix 2011 Winner – Mark Webber
  • Belgian Grand Prix 2011 Pole Position – Mark Webber
  • Belgian Grand Prix 2011 Fastest Lap – Fernando Alonso
  • Other predictions – The weather forecast to be wrong, precipitation during the race.

I may be going against the trend with people expecting Sebastian Vettel to return to his winning ways or McLaren to continue their pre-break form, but it’s about the time for Webber to turn it around. He’s been looking good all weekend. I don’t believe weather forecasts when it comes to Spa, there’s rain in the area which means there’ll be rain on the race. Enjoy the race, it’s my favourite race of the year for a reason, it always produces fantastic racing.

Mark’s Predictions

  • Belgian Grand Prix 2011 Winner – Lewis Hamilton
  • Belgian Grand Prix 2011 Pole Position – Sebastian Vettel
  • Belgian Grand Prix 2011 Fastest Lap – Mark Webbe

If it stays dry, I will be going with Lewis Hamilton, but if it rains keep an eye on Jenson “The Rain Master” Button and some might be surprised for me to say, Michael Schumacher, who in practice while it has been wet has be right on the pace. The only certainty with Spa is that the weather forecast cannot be trusted!

Euan’s Predictions

  • Belgian Grand Prix 2011 Winner – Fernando Alonso
  • Belgian Grand Prix 2011 Pole Position – Sebastian Vettel
  • Belgian Grand Prix 2011 Fastest Lap – Mark Webber
  • Other predictions – DRS will have little impact at Spa.

It’s been three weeks now since Hungary and it will be interesting to see how things have changed in the mean-time. The cars may not have been developed too much with a mandatory two-week rest period for the teams, but a rest could do certain drivers a world of good. I’m backing Fernando Alonso to come back and once again mount an end of season challenge for the title. I’m sure McLaren, Ferrari and Mark Webber will not let Sebastian Vettel stroll to the Drivers’ World Championship. One change of note during the break is Renault swapping out the experienced Nick Heidfeld for the big sponsorship deals that come with Brazilian driver Bruno Senna; this amidst rumours of financial problems for the team. It will be interesting to see if they can recover from their mid-season slump after a promising start to the season.
