The 2002 Belgian Grand Prix was a Formula One motor race held at Spa-Francorchamps on 1 September 2002. It was the fourteenth race of the 2002 FIA Formula One World Championship.

The race was won by Michael Schumacher, driving a Ferrari. Schumacher took pole position, led the whole race except during the pit stops, and set the fastest race lap. With the win, he became the first driver to win ten Formula One Grands Prix in a single season, surpassing the record jointly held by himself and Nigel Mansell. Team-mate Rubens Barrichello finished second, with Juan Pablo Montoya third in a Williams-BMW.

Two months after the race, it was announced that the Belgian Grand Prix would not be held in 2003 due to a row over tobacco advertising.[2] Spa would return to the F1 calendar in 2004, however, when the Bus Stop chicane was modified significantly.
