The favourite track of many of the drivers is one of the few remaining from the old guard. While more and more high-tech circuits are filling the race calendar, a lap at Spa leads a good seven kilometres through woods, over hills and along public roads. And then there are legendary corners too, like the hairpin 'La Source' at the very start and above all the infamous 'Eau Rouge'. It's a spot that gets the drivers' adrenalin pumping - year after year, lap after lap. At 300 km/h it's down into a dip. As on a rollercoaster, the drivers are pressed into their seats, shoot down at top speed and then up the other side, seeing nothing but the sky.
