41: Spa: Racing Point Genuine Contenders For Verstappen's Podium?


In this Pits To Podium (https://bit.ly/pitstopodium) segment, Soumil and Kunal look forward to the 2020 Belgian Grand Prix hosted at the oh-so-awesome Spa Francorchamps. Will this be the last time we could see the Mercedes cars qualify ahead of their rivals by a mile? Yes, this is the last race where different engine modes will be permitted in qualifying.

The ‘pink Mercedes’ (Racing Point, duh!) cars have historically done well at this circuit. Can they be genuine podium challengers to Red Bull Racing’s Max Verstappen? Will Ferrari use a low-downforce setup to aid Charles Leclerc’s chances one more time? There’s always the uber-competitive mid-field battle and George Russell’s qualifying lap we keep high hopes for. Tune in!
