Mark Webber overtakes Fernando Alonso through Eau Rouge

It is reported that France’s Paul Ricard is close to inking an agreement to share alternating race hosting rights from 2013 with the fabled Belgian track.

And Pirelli’s motor sport director Paul Hembery reacted similarly: “Yuk.

“Agree (with Webber), leave Spa alone.”
