Lewis Hamilton is preparing for a tough Sunday slog in sweltering conditions as he bids to claw his way through the field at the Belgian Formula One Grand Prix.
The Mercedes driver will start from the last row or the pit lane after being hit with a 55-place grid penalty for exceeding his permitted allocation of engine-related components with three power-unit changes this weekend.
"It's going to be a very, very hard race," Hamilton told reporters after Saturday's qualifying session where he drove only a handful of laps, watching the rest of it in his shorts in his driver's room
"Being this hot it's going to be hard to follow, being in traffic...I envision tomorrow's going to be hard to get into the top-10 with the tires the way they are."...
The 25 year old, who was playing in the third singles final of his career, had been unable to clinch his maiden title earlier this season on both the clay of Estoril and Sao Paulo.

MANILA - Filipino mixed martial arts fighter Edward Kelly has extended Team Lakay's impressive win streak following a stoppage victory over Vincent Latoel on the undercard of ONE Championship: Titles and Titans Saturday night at the Jakarta Convention Center in Indonesia.
Kelly, 32, was on the receiving end of Latoel's trademark leg kicks in the opening round. Seemingly showing no respect for Kelly's power, the Dutch fighter had the Filipino against the cage where he ate a right hook that sent him to the canvas in the second round.
Smelling blood, Kelly was more than happy to finish his prey by unleashing a hammer fist on top to seal the knockout victory at the 0:57 mark of round two.
The highlight reel knockout improved Kelly's record to 8-3 while Latoel dropped to 16-18. — DVM, GMA News...
