Vettel hoping for rain
Sebastian Vettel is hoping Spa-Francorchamps' rare dry spell does not continue.
Oddly this weekend, the fabled layout in the notoriously fickle Belgian Ardennes region has remained rain-free so far.
So after a poor qualifying, Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel is turning his eye to Sunday's weather man, who thinks rain might affect the Belgian grand prix.
"My (qualifying) lap was good until the last chicane, so I'm not happy with myself," said the German.
Now, he is hoping either for chaos due to the new clutch settings and radio clampdown, or a spattering of status quo-disturbing rain.
"There is the potential for a chaotic start tomorrow," Vettel is quoted by Brazil's Globo. "I just hope it's not as chaotic for us and things flow as they did in Hungary," he laughed.
"We also have many wet tyres here, so I think we can change them as often as we need to," he added.
