After a little more than four weeks Formula 1 is back at the majestic 7 km long Spa-Francorchamps track.

After the sunny day on Thursday the Belgian weather returned to normal and the rain came this morning making the first Belgian practice session an extremely wet one.

The Practice 1 end sees Felipe Massa stopping on track with a lot of smoke surrounding his F2012 suggesting an engine problem.

Kobayashi ends the practice in P1 ahead of Maldonado, Ricciardo and Vergne.
