26.08.2021: Alpine F1 Team is in Spa-Francorchamps for the twelfth race of the 2021 FIA Formula 1 World Championship, the Belgian Grand Prix. The circuit • Spa-Francorchamps is the longest lap on the calendar at 7.004km and also has the most circuit


Alpine F1 Team is in Spa-Francorchamps for the twelfth race of the 2021 FIA Formula 1 World Championship, the Belgian Grand Prix.




The circuit



• Spa-Francorchamps is the longest lap on the calendar at 7.004km and also has the most circuit elevation of the season at 102.2m per lap.


• The circuit also hosted the World Endurance Championship earlier this year. The fastest lap time in the race was 2min 03.930secs, which was 16 seconds off the fastest lap in the 2020 Formula 1 race posted by former team driver Daniel Ricciardo with a 1min 47.483secs.


• The track has some of the most unique corner names on the calendar. For instance, Bruxelles, also named Rivage, is due to the name of the hamlet nearby. The double left of Pouhon is based on the ferruginous mineral spring which has given Spa its repute. Whilst the final chicane was once alluded to as the "Bus Stop", as there used to be a bus stop situated there when the track was open to road traffic.






Driver/team facts





• Esteban Ocon secured his first ever win in Formula 1 at the Hungarian Grand Prix. It was also the first for Alpine in Formula 1, and Renault’s first powered win since the Belgian Grand Prix in 2014.


• In doing so, Esteban also became Formula 1’s 111th different race winner.


• Esteban is ranked third in laps led in 2021 with 65. Only Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton have led more.


• Fernando Alonso scored his best result at the Hungarian Grand Prix since finishing fourth at the 2014 Singapore Grand Prix.


• Fernando is now joint second on the all-time Grands Prix started in Formula 1 at 322 and will overtake Rubens Barrichello on Sunday.


• Alpine F1 Team has now scored points in ten consecutive races. Whilst Fernando is the only driver to have currently recorded six points finishes or more in a row.


• Last year’s Belgian Grand Prix holds good memories for the team after Daniel Ricciardo finished fourth and Esteban took fifth place. Daniel also recorded the fastest lap of the race on his final lap.






Alpine Academy




• FIA Formula 3 returns for round five at Spa-Francorchamps. Victor Martins currently sits seventh in the Drivers’ Standings, with MP Motorsport teammate Caio Collet placed tenth.



• Victor has history with Spa having stepped on the podium once in each of his last three visits here in Formula Renault Eurocup.


• Caio has also stepped on the podium in Belgium, finishing second during Race Two of the 2019 Eurocup Championship round at Spa-Francorchamps.
