The 2020 Belgian Grand Prix will not go down as the most memorable event that has taken place on the famous 4.35 miles of Spa-Francorchamps.
And yet, across the weekend in the Ardennes, there were several important moments, which established where the race would be won, that were also an essential part of the impact and legacy one of Formula 1's greats is creating.
Even though his career is not yet over, Lewis Hamilton will go down as one of the best drivers F1 has ever had - if not the best. On statistics alone, which will surely become even more relevant in the coming weeks as he closes on Michael Schumacher's all-time win record, he has made his mark on history. Of his peers, so have Sebastian Vettel, Kimi Raikkonen, and the (soon-to-be) returning Fernando Alonso. Max Verstappen and Charles Leclerc are also already forging their own path into the record books.
