Monaco’s Charles Leclerc celebrates the first GP win in his career. At Spa-Francorchamps’ seven-kilometre Ardennes Rollercoaster, the just 21-year old Ferrari ace crossed the finish line ahead of the Mercedes pairing Lewis Hamilton (34) and Valtteri Bottas (30). Sebastian Vettel in the second Ferrari came fourth.
RAVENOL’s Formula One partner, the SportPesa Racing Point F1 Team, also experienced a good weekend, with both Sergio ‘Checo’ Perez (29) and Lance Stroll (20) making it to the points by finishing sixth and tenth respectively. The team can rely on an experienced partner, RAVENOL that supports the Formula One squad with its expertise gained in numerous decades of research, development and production. With this involvement, RAVENOL establishes as one of the globally leading high-end lubricant manufacturers.
At the same time, the race weekend in Belgium was clouded by a horror crash in the Formula 2 race on Saturday that cost young Frenchman Anthoine Hubert, member of the Renault young-driver programme, his life. Our heartfelt sympathy.
As early as on the coming weekend, the GP calendar features the next round in the battle for F1 world championship points and race wins: the Italian Grand Prix, contested at Monza, Ferrari’s home turf.
