Best Running Pilot on the Spa Runway Kimi Raikkonen continued to push the pace of the legendary route host to the Grand Prix of Belgium. Ferrari's Finnish driver improved the track record by recording 1: 43.916 minutes, and continued to increase his chances of winning on Sunday. Before that, however, Raikkonen will have to stay fastest on the track in the next-hour qualification.
Ferrari's teammate Sebastian Vettel remained second, with 0.197 seconds behind the leader. The four-time world champion did not reach Raikkonen's record pace, but continued to work more focused on the race for Sunday's race.
