When the /DRIVE crew came to Europe to film their Germany/Spa special for NBC Sports, I met up with them at the Belgian racetrack to check out what happens at one of their shoots. »
The many drivers who cut the corner at Raidillon this morning during the Belgian Grand Prix raised more than a few eyebrows this morning. It took turn 4 from being a corner to, well, much less of a corner. Not going around the curbing seemed to be a fast line. Was F1 ignoring its own rule here?
Ferrari tried a single-pit-stop strategy with Sebastian Vettel’s car for the Formula One Belgian Grand Prix today that didn’t ultimately work out, as you can see. One of Vettel’s Pirellis popped in spectacular fashion on the next to last lap.
This weekend, NBCSN’s Steve Matchett and Leigh Diffey plan to cover the Formula One Belgian Grand Prix at Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps, then fly over to Pennsylvania to cover IndyCar at Pocono Raceway. How, exactly? We picked Diffey’s brain on how the television sausage is made to find out.
Your fancy-schmancy Caterham, TVR or even Miata won't do you any good when the heavens open up and the clouds take a big wet dump all over your race track. You need something with more traction. An engine over the drive wheels, perhaps. You need a front-wheel-drive hatch. »

The BMW M3 CSL doesn't do drift days; it lets its tail hang out whenever and wherever it pleases. Last August, a CSL opted to go slightly sideways of the racing line at the legendary Spa-Francorchamps circuit in Belgium. »
We’re back! After a four-week summer break, Formula One has returned to Spa-Francorchamps. And it was overtake city, crazy qualifying and terribly gorgeous drives. Warning: spoilers. »
To whet your appetite for this coming weekend’s Belgian Grand Prix, here’s a gallery of photos our man in Warsaw, Adrian Lepa, has sent us from a recent trip to Spa-Francorchamps.
