Robert Kubica believes Renault’s chances of a strong showing in this weekend’s Belgian Grand Prix will depend on how well it can get its F-duct running. The French car manufacturer is introducing its blown wing concept for the first time at Spa-Francorchamps – at a track where the straight-line speed boost it provides could be a big help.
