Surely you jest. Payola. I thought that was eradicated years ago. Snort.

Gee, Hamilton's car was a lot slower than it was the week before. You're slipping, someone must have sabotaged the McLaren.

Forget the conspiracy theories. The performance of F1 cars is separated by hundreds of a second from the front of the grid to the back. Small aerodynamic changes can yield results that appear confounding. Spa favoured cars that had good downforce from body aerodynamics. That let these cars run flatter wing angles, and thus gain more top end on the long straights. Monza is the same type of track. Conversely, most F1 tracks are suited to cars that run well with a high wing angle, and do better in the corners.
