Throwback Thursdays: 1962 Belgian Grand Prix

This long summer break probably feels like a short blip for those working on F1 teams but it endless for fans now used to a race almost every week end.

But it wasn't always so, in 1962 the Formula One calendar had only nine races, The Belgian Grand Prix on the old 14 km Spa circuit was the third race of a season that was a complete debacle for Ferrari and the marked the rise of British teams, Graham Hill won the championship for BRM but it was Lotus, with it's revolutionary 25 monocoque driven by Jim Clark who would change F1 forever.
