Although it obviously makes sense to check a weather forecast ahead of any trip you take, Spa-Francorchamps can serve up some of the craziest weather of any of the F1 circuits the championship visits each year. Although the race falls during the European summer, it’s location at 420m / 1378ft above sea level and deep in the Ardennes forest means dramatic changes in the weather are never far away. The track is so large that it can also be raining heavily in one section whilst the other remains bone dry. The conclusion? Pack clothes for all weathers and take an umbrella. If you have a backpack you can layer up and peel them off as the temperature increases. Just don’t get caught out as so many do!
