Belgian Grand Prix: Gutierrez eyes top ten as Sauber soldiers on to Spa

For head of track engineering Tom McCullough, however, it will be a case of keeping one eye on the skies and the other on what is happening on track.

“We have improved the competitiveness of the C32 throughout the first half of the season and we aim to capitalise on that between now and the end of the year,” he claimed, “After the August break, the whole team feels refreshed and we are looking forward to the remaining nine races.

“Spa-Francorchamps is a favourite track for many engineers and drivers as the track requirements are different to the majority of the tracks we visit. The circuit efficiency penalises higher levels of drag so the rear wings will return to the medium levels of downforce and, as always, we will have to keep an eye on the forecast as this often influences the race weekend in Spa-Francorchamps.”
