As is customary before each Grand Prix, there's a drivers parade round the circuit. While this usually takes the form of a truck ferrying the drivers round waving at at the crowds and doing media interviews - Belgium is a little different and they come round in older cars.
Here we see race winner Jenson Button at Eau Rouge atop a Mercedes - a tip of the hat to his current team Mclaren Mercedes.
Jenson, of course, went on to win the 2012 Belgian Grand Prix with ease (after the serious competition got wiped out at La Source)
