Belgian GP: Mercedes F1 at Spa ready to deal with ‘unfinished business’

Mercedes boss Toto Wolff says the Belgian GP represents “unfinished business” for the world champions as they look for a first win at legendary Spa-Francorchamps in three years this weekend.

Unusually by their relentless winning standards, the world champions have only won half the races at Spa in the hybrid engine era they have dominated – three victories and three race-day defeats – with Ferrari taking each of the last two victories.

Although this time the form of the Scuderia means a hat-trick is unlikely for them, Wolff expects the usual challenges and variables of the Belgian weekend to make the result far from a foregone conclusion.
“Our next race takes us to Spa where we have not won since 2017, so as we head to Belgium it feels like there is an unfinished business,” he said.

“It’s an iconic track and one of the fans’ favourites, but finding the right set-up can be difficult due to the variety of features; on the one hand, you want to drag as little as possible on the long straights, but on the other hand, you need a certain level of downforce to be quick through the corners.

“The Ardennes are also predicted to be rainy, which won’t make the job any easier.
Mercedes impressively rebounded from the tyre blistering problems that helped Red Bull ‘s Max Verstappen to take a commanding victory last time out in Barcelona at the 70th Anniversary GP of F1, which ended their winning start to 2020.

“Winning in Spain has been a great reward in the days before for all the smart work and it makes me very proud to see how this team just keeps raising the bar,” the Mercedes team leader said.
