Lewis Hamilton puts his Mercedes car through its paces
27 August, 2017, 01:23
And Mick Schumacher, the 18-year-old son of seven-time Formula 1 World Champion Michael Schumacher, will be at the Belgian Grand Prix for an exhibition drive behind the wheel of a 1994-spec Benetton F1 vehicle.
This weekend's Belgian race could also see one of his records equalled, with Mercedes driver and three-time world champion Lewis Hamilton needing one pole position to match Schumacher's unprecedented 68.
Seeking his third Belgian win, Hamilton will be the pre-race favourite to win again but knows that Ferrari have regained the momentum in the title race following their dominant one-two finish led by Vettel in Hungary. Other short odds to win are Sebastian Vettel (+275) and Valtteri Bottas (+350).
Hamilton and Vettel have traded wins this season, with four victories each and one angry exchange of words in a heated moment at the Azerbaijan GP.
Hamilton is a two-time victor of this race, last taking the win in 2015.
Vettel could only manage fifth in the second session while Britain's Jolyon Palmer also showed better pace after a hard first half to the season in 10th place.
After two world titles with Benetton in 1994 and 1995, the German won five in a row with Ferrari from 2000 to 2004, then retired in 2006 before making a comeback with Mercedes, but could not repeat his earlier success.
Michael Schumacher made his F1 debut at Spa in 1991 and won his first race at the Belgian track a year later. This year, Bottas is third in the point standings thanks to joining Mercedes.
After three years of total dominance, Mercedes has surprisingly been hit with unexpected reliability issues concerning tires and the rear balance of the auto this season - which is probably why Wolff is sounding cautious.
