Scheduling: The Belgian Grand Prix

The Formula One break has come and gone. The drivers and teams are back from their holidays, and it is time to one of the best, if not the best motor racing circuit in the world. Spa Francorchamps in the Ardennes forest in Belgium. Gone are all the BBC and Sky changes from before the Summer break, as this weekend and for the foreseeable future both sides are at full strength, with Jake Humphrey back for BBC, and Anthony Davidson back for Sky Sports F1.
