Very interesting grid for the race! Mercedes was once again dominant while Bottas did a great job to make it into the top-3. The biggest surprise of the session was certainly Grosjean with his amazing fourth place. Ferrari was plain terrible; a mechanical failure for Räikkönen and only ninth place for Vettel. They were beaten by both Lotuses, among others. But McLaren was even worse - if that underpowered Honda engine is this bad in Spa, how awful will it be in Monza? I hardly dare to think about it.

There might not be a great battle for the victory as Mercedes seems invincible but the closeness of the grid behind promises yet another thrilling race at Spa-Francorchamps.
