How to watch the Belgian Grand Prix online today


The Formula 1 season returns this weekend after the summer break with the Belgian Grand Prix at the famous Spa-Francorchamps circuit with Max Verstappen 80 points ahead of Charles Leclerc in the standings.

The 2021 world champion has won eight of the first thirteen races this season, the last coming a month ago at the Hungarian Grand Prix after a dominant performance as the Belgian-Dutchman stormed through the field from P10. F1’s return to Belgium will come after big news at the end of the summer break, with Daniel Ricciardo leaving McLaren at the end of this season, paving the way for Oscar Piastri to move to McLaren after the 2021 F2 champion falls dramatically turned down a seat at Alpine .
