Hamilton vs. Vettel will not be the only battle

The Formula 1 season did not roar back into life on Friday morning exactly, as the expected damp start to the weekend in the Ardennes muted the action.

McLaren and Force India are locked in a fierce battle for fifth place in the Constructors' standings, while Sauber and Toro Rosso will look to be sniffing around the tail-end of the points.
