Can Max Verstappen get between the two Mercedes' at the start? Can Daniel Ricciardo cause a further surprise from row two? And will the struggling Ferraris even get into the points?
The 20-car grid for the Belgian GP is packed full of potential story lines for the 44-lap race, after qualifying caused a different-looking grid to normal behind the top three of Lewis Hamilton, Valtteri Bottas and Verstappen.
The 2020 Belgian GP begins at 2.10pm, with build-up on Sky Sports F1 and Main Event from 12.30pm.
Looking strong in lower-downforce conditions, Renault could be set for bumper points haul from Ricciardo's fourth and Esteban Ocon's sixth on the grid.
Alex Albon starts between the two yellow cars in the second Red Bull for his best starting position since the season's opening weekend in Austria.
Racing Point were relatively disappointed with eighth and ninth after their attempt to make Q3 on the medium tyres didn't work out, but had displayed stronger relative race pace on Friday and should be a factor in the right behind the top two teams.
The same however could not be said of Ferrari.
Failing to feature in Q3 for the first time since 2014, Ferrari embarrassingly locked out the seventh row and look no more certain for a top-10 finish over the longer distance in the race than they did on single-lap pace through practice and qualifying.
