Eau Rouge is possibly the most famous and iconic corner in Formula 1. The series of turns through 3, 4, and 5 of the Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps make up Eau Rouge and Raidillon, just before the long Kemmel straight. Eau Rouge is named after a stream that passes through under the track, with water that is reddish due to the high amounts of iron it contains.
