The 13th round of the 2019 Formula One season takes place this weekend at the Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps, where Sebastian Vettel was victorious last year.
The Ferrari driver beat Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton into second place to keep the pressure on him at the top of the standings, but trails by some distance this season, with Hamilton a strong favourite to retain the world title.
He comes into this weekend with a 94 point lead over the Ferrari driver, who is in fourth place in the Drivers’ championship.
It’s Hamilton’s team mate, Valtteri Bottas, who is in second place on 188 points, 7 a head of third place man Max Verstappen.
All five sessions – three practices, qualifying and the race (2.10pm start) – will be shown live on Sky Sports F1, while highlights of qualifying and the race will air on Channel 4.
