World Championship leader Nico Rosberg will be the star attraction in Thursday’s Drivers’ Press Conference ahead of this weekend’s Belgian GP.

As the sport prepares for its resumption following the three-week summer break, Rosberg currently leads Mercedes team-mate Lewis Hamilton by eleven points at the top of the standings.

Joining Rosberg in the Thursday afternoon conference, broadcast live by Sky Sports F1 at 2pm, will be Marussia driver – and reputed Ferrari target – Jules Bianchi as well as Daniel Ricciardo of Red Bull, Williams’ Felipe Massa, Romain Grosjean of Lotus and Daniil Kvyat. Just what will the Russian make of Toro Rosso’s decision to appoint Max Verstappen as his 2015 team-mate?

Friday’s team bosses' press conference will be an altogether more technical affair, with a host of senior personnel summoned to face the press. Their number will include Red Bull’s Technical Director Adrian Newey and Williams’ Rob Smedley, along with Ferrari’s Pat Fry – whose future with the Scuderia has been cast in considerable doubt in recent weeks.
