The Belgian Grand Prix, run at the Spa circuit, is one of the drivers’ favorites. It’s a beauitful and fast track with ever changing condition. During the practise runs there was very heavy rain and during the race there was lovely sunshine. The race itself was exciting, but for the wrong reason. Sebastian Grosjean caused a huge crash at the start when he squeezed Hamilton where he could not be squeezed. The results were flying cars and Alonso, Hamilton and Grosjean out of the race. Hamilton’s McLaren teammate Jensen Button started from pole and he finished in first place, in what was a relatively easy race for him.
