Formula One returns this weekend after being off for a few weeks for their summer break. The 2022 Belgian Grand Prix will be held on Sunday, August 28 at the Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps in Stavelot, Belgium. This will be the 14th race of the 22-race schedule. The action will get started on Friday, August 26 leading up to the race on Sunday, August 28.

The weather for the week starts warm and humid. This will lead to an increased chance of thunderstorms as we get into the second day of events on Saturday, followed by the race on Sunday. The good news is that it doesn’t look like prolonged rain is expected, just thunderstorms in spots that should pass quickly.
