The 12th round of the 2017 Formula One season takes place this weekend at the Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium.

He took the chequered flag in 2004, 2005, 2007 and 2009, while title challengers Sebastian Vettel and Lewis Hamilton have each registered two victories.

Vettel comes into the weekend on 202 points, Hamilton is 14 points behind in second place, while Bottas is a further 19 points behind in third.
