Nick Heidfeld: "Although Spa is not particularly far from my home town of Monchengladbach, I haven't raced there much, which is a shame because Spa is one of the most beautiful circuits on the calendar. It has numerous fast corners and is wonderfully embedded into the landscape. Not only does this create a special atmosphere for the spectators, but also for the drivers. Personally, I find Eau Rouge one of the most unusual corners and I always tell everyone to view the race from it. The compression does not cause any physical problems, but the g- forces are unique. Drivers are used to sideways g-forces, or those experienced under braking. I've tried bob sleighing before and going through Eau Rouge feels just like you're sitting in a bob. Spa is notorious for its unpredictable weather. I'm hoping for rain because we don't get many wet races, although Spa might not be the best venue for it. Similar to the former long forest straight at Hockenheim, the high speeds cause the water, blown up by the cars, to become trapped between the trees instead of being blown away by the wind."

OPINION: Carlos Sainz came close to winning in Monaco but needed that race’s specific circumstances for his shot at a maiden Formula 1 victory to appear.
