The circuit at Spa Francorchamps is a tricky, history-rich set of elevation-changing curves. From catastrophic accidents to utterly brilliant passes, it highlights both car and driver in a way few modern F1 circuits manage.

Fortunately, you don't have to book a flight to Belgium and find a few hundred million dollars in sponsorship money to lap Spa in an F1 car. You can do it virtually, as demonstrated in this video of actual in-game footage from Codemasters' F1 2013.

The spot-on track commentary is also a welcome feature, orienting the virtual racer to the track's requirements and possibilities from the F1 cockpit.
