After a month break, Formula 1 returns to its regular schedule, which opens the legendary Belgian Grand Prix. By the way, exactly 20 years ago at the Circuit de Spa in Belgium, he made ​​his debut in the Royal race, Michael Schumacher, now – seven-time world champion. It just so happened that it was for him the qualifications and there was less successful way – flown away the rear wheel on the car Mercedes GP German pilot led to his departure and the termination of the struggle at the very beginning of the first segment. But the pole again left for Red Bull – this season the team for the 12th time in 12 races will start from the first place. Despite the fact that most of the weekend was ahead of Mark Webber has extended his contract with Red Bull for another year, the curtain of the final segment has shown the best time is still Vettel, snatch it from Lews Hamilton. Hamilton, who was in an ambiguous situation with Pastor Maldonado is still possible to be punished (as venesuellets) – both drivers behave on the highway in relation to each other very strongly, so that it came to contact and damage cars. Mark Webber in the end was the third, and after it is placed Felipe Massa, the second time this season, after Hungary, ahead of his team-mate Fernando Alonso on. Spaniard this time was far enough – only the eighth. But an even more difficult situation was Jenson Button, too early to come back to the pits, allowing opponents to push him to 13th place. In fifth place he qualified Nico Rosberg, and the sixth – Toro Rosso driver Jaime Alguersuari, who in the course of the weekend in Belgium looked at the Spa very much. Sixth suddenly become Bruno Senna, replacing the same in Lotus Renault GP Niha Heidfeld. While officially only two coming races, but in the plans – by the end of the season. Sergio Perez closed the top ten (9th place) and Vitaly Petrov (10th place). Let’s see what will happen tomorrow, maybe pilots have chosen different settings for the race. If Friday and Saturday, including during the first half of qualifying at the track was damp, the Sunday weather forecasters promise dry weather. In any case, the race at Spa is never boring, and weather forecasts are often not true.
