F1 Round 7 - Belgium GP
Updated: Sep 6
Hamilton won again, no chances for the competition
Before starting the race, the drivers did a tribute for Anthoine Hubert, the young F2 French driver tragically died in car crash last year in the same circuit of Spa-Francorchamps. Some of the drivers were his close friend and also did other tributes, like Pierre Gasly who drove yesterday with a customized helmet having pictures of his friend on it.
Hamilton won the Belgium GP, giving no chances for the other drivers, Bottas finished on 2nd position and Verstappen finished in 3rd, then to complete, Daniel Riccardo finished in 4th, so we did not have changes on the first four places.
The race itself was not the most exciting, except for a few moments, when we had a Safety car entrance due to the crash of Antonio Giovanazzi from Alfa Romeo and George Russell from Williams, who was unable to avoid to crash into the missing wheel in the track, also crashing into the barriers.
Esteban Ocon passed Alex Albon on the last lap finishing in 5th and Alex in 6th, just ahead of the Lando Norris in 7th. Pierre Gasly had a good racing finishing in 8th, just ahead of the two Racing Points, Stroll in 9th and Perez in 10th.
The Ferraris had a disappointing race, finishing in 13th with Vettel and 14th with Leclerc, reversed from their starting grid position and unfortunately far away from the front cars.
