The 7th race of the 2020 season officially took place at the Spa-Francorchamps race track in Belgium. Race 2 weeks ago in Spain, fans continue to see Hamilton as the winner of the leg. Verstappen went on to second place and Bottas finished third with a few tire issues that affected Mercedes’ tactics for his No. 2 handlebar.
This weekend the races return to fans on a fairly long-standing track in Belgium, the legendary Spa-Francorchamps race. As expected before the Cataluyna race took place, the teams were all too familiar on the track. However, due to the complicated situation with the epidemic, the organization time has to be delayed until this point. A time when the weather was quite hot in Europe. That also significantly affects the settings for the cars of the racing teams so that they are optimal.
The Red bull is probably more effective in this regard than the Mercedes. The proof is that Verstappen has consistently been on the podium and Mercedes’ ability to split the duo is always possible in recent races.
Up until this point in the season, it could be said only Red Bull. Specifically, their main driver is Verstappen, which has the ability to influence the Mercedes duo in dominating the highest positions on the podium after the race ends.
However, at Spa-Francorchamps, which has never traditionally been Reb Bull’s forte with long straight lines, high speed corners. Mercedes will have its advantage again with the power of the engine being promoted. Spa-Francorchamps is a favorite racetrack of many riders. Normally, when playing here, very close to the Netherlands, Verstappen is always supported with a large audience.
This comeback, with regulations on social distance, will continue to have no spectators to attend sporting events. And it is almost likely that the racers will play without direct fan support until the end of the 2020 season.
