SPA, BELGIUM - AUGUST 28: Fans cheer during the F1 Grand Prix of Belgium at Circuit de

Nestled in the heart of the beautiful Ardennes region and surrounded by coniferous forest is the historic Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps, home of the Belgian Grand Prix. Designed in 1920, the original circuit used public roads to link the towns of Francorchamps, Malmedy and Stavelot and hosted its first non-championship Grand Prix in 1925 before becoming one of only seven circuits that were part of Formula 1’s inaugural championship in 1950.

There have been many layout changes since then, but the one thing that has remained consistent is the F1 drivers’ love for this challenging circuit which, at 7.004km, is the longest track on the F1 calendar.
