The Belgian Grand Prix is held on the Spa-Francorchamps circuit, one of the few in the world which EVERY driver loves to race at. Fast corners, long straights, nice elevation and the weather always plays it’s part. Qualifying was held in wet condition which started to dry out towards the end, basically the man who managed to get round at exactly the right moment would be on pole position. This man was once again Sebastian Vettel. On race day the weather played no part, but the blistering tires did. After some early dicing with Rosberg in his Mercedes Vettel pulled out a lead over Alonso and Hamilton. Hamilton crashed, Alonso started to slow in the final third of the race and Vettel stayed in P1 untill the chequered flag fell. Webber and Button took the remaining two podium places.
