Williams are sitting fifth in the Constructors' Championship this season, 60 points behind Force India fourth.
The Belgian Grand Prix takes place Sunday at 8AM ET from Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps.
Here are the main storylines to keep track of in Belgium this weekend.
"I feel good, I feel ready to get back in the vehicle". "On the high downforce tracks Mercedes are very strong".
"Spa is my favourite track of the year".
"It definitely feels like a home Grand Prix for me because it's so close to the border". According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, Lewis Hamilton is the favorite to win this race, as he has -142 odds to win.

It is more than three years since Michael Schumacher's life-changing skiing accident.
Hamilton is 14 points behind Vettel.
"How do you eat your frites?". While he races under the Dutch flag, Verstappen was born in Belgium to a Belgian mother, growing up on the border between the two countries. "Very unusual feelings. I was not feeling good to race". The atmosphere was electric a year ago, so don't expect 2017 to be any different. "It was the first time I had this".
The revamped F1 cars for 2017 have received widespread acclaim from drivers and fans alike, thrilled by the added downforce and speed they have boasted so far this season. Indeed some within the paddock even suggested that Kubica could replace Palmer after the summer break.
The confirmations of Kimi Raikkonen and Stoffel Vandoorne, while unsurprising, have tipped the dominoes that should help the remainder of the market to firm up.
It is not a significant gap, but Vettel has been keeping his Ferrari in front all season, and Hamilton needs to increase the pressure on the German driver over the remaining nine races.
