The Belgian Grand Prix was designated the European Grand Prix six times between 1925 and 1973 when this title was an honorary designation given each year to one Grand Prix race in Europe. It is one of the most popular races on the Formula One calendar, due to the scenic and historical Spa-Francorchamps circuit being a favorite of drivers and fans. It was first held way back in 1925 and has been a regular feature on the F1 calendar since 1975.

Belgian GP 2022 Predictions

Given the form Max Verstappen is in, one can expect the Red Bull star man to come up trumps in Belgium as well. However, he will certainly be tested by the likes of Charles Leclerc, Carlos Sainz, Lewis Hamilton, and Sergio Perez. P1 for Verstappen, P2 for Leclerc and P3 for Hamilton is our prediction for the weekend.
