And that's all from us! Keep checking out Autosport and Motorsport.com for all the news as it unravels, and we'll see you tomorrow for the race!
Here's the report from a wet and wild Belgian GP qualifying session: https://www.autosport.com/f1/news/belgian-gp-qualifying-report/6655588/
Seems like it's raining even harder at this point - it'll be a struggle to get the junior series out on track.
Russell: "I thought we did a good job to get out of Q1, and now we're here on the front row. Car was great, I had so much confidence. Now, on to tomorrow."
Russell getting plenty of congratulations from the other drivers, great performance in the Williams.
Top 10 in qualifying: Verstappen, Russell, Hamilton, Ricciardo, Vettel, Gasly, Perez, Bottas, Ocon, Norris.
Gasly and Perez now occupy fifth and sixth, the French driver half a second off Vettel's fastest in this final part of qualifying.
Bottas and Vettel set times in the 2m03s, as Verstappen can't capitalise on his fastest first sector and goes second.
The track seems to be dry enough at the majority of places, although there's a few puddles hanging about in Sector 2.
We've had a few world feed shots of some karting going on at the circuit at the bottom of the main course, with one competitor finding the gravel. The conditions are even difficult at low speeds.
Spa will undergo changes to try and stop cars bouncing back into the circuit. Here's some more on the planned modifications.
Marshals are still clearing up at Raidillon, with some oil to clear up as a result of Norris' crash.
"What the **** did I say? It's unnecessary - is he okay?" said Vettel after Norris' crash, having called for a red flag earlier.
Norris had reported aquaplaning on his out-lap, and caught a moment at Eau Rouge. He's out of the car, which is always good to see.
Drivers in Q3: Norris, Hamilton, Bottas, Gasly, Verstappen, Vettel, Perez, Russell, Ricciardo, Ocon.
