So the break is over and next week brings Belgium, i love Spa it's one of my favourite circuits, hoping Vettel can shine and get some points to try catch Lewis.

How do you see this race going?

Logic says Ferrari should be the strongest, Kimi is strong here so hopefully he could do good. Red Bull shouldn't be in the mix which is unfortunate but who knows though? Also the relationship between the team and Ricciardo will be interesting to see.

Midfield I think it's looking good for Haas and Sauber with their Ferrari engines, Leclerc was very strong here last year so I wouldn't put it past him for a class B victory. I reckon Force India may have a strong race which they need after what's going on there.

Ideal result would be Vettel win and Hamilton DNF so Seb takes the lead for Monza, who knows though? I think it'll be a good race, last year was decent, the track is excellent and this year the field is closer. Maybe some rain to mess things up would be cool also

Nothing really happened in the race unfortunately but happy to see a Vettel victory, plus a great showing from the Force India boys. Glad Leclerc survived that crash, if the halo wasn't there we could have seen him join Bianchi

I am glad he survived the crash too. Was nasty, but exciting to watch. Crashes are for some reason! That however, is a very childish viewpoint! :eek: :D ;) :)

I think I might have that view when I first started watching, but now I always get worried when I see a big one, like Hartley in Canada

To be honest, I do still have that point of view, but once the crash ends, you start getting worried if the drivers involved are alright, or not, particularly if there's no movement straight away. Fortunately, serious incidents in Formula 1, when it's hit or miss if the driver will survive or not, is rare.

That's why I'm glad for the modern safety features, like Ericsson 's crash in Monza, whether he would have walked away if it happened 20 years ago is unlikely.

Yes, there's a lot safety involved in Formula 1, in this day and age. This certainly pays off, when you see drivers get out of the cars and walk off as if nothing has happened. If these accidents happened 20 years ago or more, more than likely death or life threatening injuries would be involved.
