Belgian Grand Prix to be a Part of the F1 Race Calendar Until 2025

The Formula 1 Belgian Grand Prix will be a part of the race calendar for two more years. The first Belgian Grand Prix was held in 1925, and currently, it is one of the oldest Grand Prix in Formula 1 history.

With some intervals in between, the Grand Prix has taken place a total of 79 times. The legendary racer Michael Schumacher has won the race six times, which is the most by any driver. When it comes to constructors, Ferrari has won the Grand Prix a total of 18 times.

This year, when the Grand Prix took place, Charles Leclerc from Ferrari secured the pole position in qualifying. Well, the Red Bull drivers got a double podium finish, with Max Verstappen winning the race and Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton completing the fastest lap of the race. It was a completely versatile result, to be honest, but that is what F1 is defined for.

Well, now it is a part of the F1 Race Calendar until 2025, and let’s see who dominates the 7-kilometer (4.3-mile) long circuit.
