Lewis Hamilton wins the Belgian GP

His teammate, the Finn Valtteri Bottas, and Verstappen, who followed him on the starting grid, completed the podium.

The Renault of Australian Daniel Ricciardo and Frenchman Esteban Ocon were 4th and 5th.

For Ferrari, lacking rhythm on this track, the nightmare continues: the German Sebastian Vettel was 13th and the Monegasque Charles Leclerc 14th.

Leclerc was called up by the race marshals, who reproached him for driving too slow during the reconnaissance lap, before settling on the grid.

The Thai Alexander Albon (Red Bull), the British Lando Norris (McLaren), the French Pierre Gasly (Renault), the Canadian Lance Stroll (Racing Point) and the Mexican Sergio Pérez (Racing Point) completed the top 10.

A spectacular exit from the track by Antonio Giovinazzi (Alfa Romeo) on lap 11 also caused the abandonment of Briton George Russell (Williams), who could not avoid one of the Italian’s wheels, who had returned to the track. Both pilots emerged unscathed.
