The 2017 Belgian Grand Prix (officially the 2017 Formula 1 Pirelli Belgian Grand Prix)[1] was the twelfth race of the 2017 Formula One season, and the sixty-first time the Belgian Grand Prix was held on the Formula One calendar. It was held between 25 August and 27 August 2017.

In qualifying, Lewis Hamilton scored his 68th pole position, also equalling Michael Schumacher's record of most poles. Sebastian Vettel joined Hamilton on the front row, once again qualifying ahead of Valtteri Bottas.


BackgroundEdit

Before the Grand Prix weekend, several teams confirmed one driver staying at each team for the 2018 season: Ferrari confirmed that Kimi Räikkönen would race for them for another year,[2] while McLaren decided to keep Stoffel Vandoorne.[3]

To celebrate the 25th anniversary of Michael Schumacher's first Grand Prix victory at the 1992 Belgian Grand Prix, his son Mick drove the Benetton B194 at the circuit.[4]

After he missed the Hungarian Grand Prix because of an illness, Felipe Massa was passed fit to compete in the Belgian Grand Prix.[5]
