Post-Race Statistics of the 2014 Belgian GP

Well… Spa was a little bit insane, great for the media, not so great for Mercedes.

The permanently happy chappy that is Daniel Ricciardo now has another reason to smile after winning the Belgian GP from fifth on the grid, winning the last two races. Current championship leader Nico Rosberg hasn’t won two races in a row, only Lewis Hamilton and Daniel Ricciardo have. Nico Rosberg finished in second place for his 10th podium of the season and the young flying Finn Valtteri Bottas in third.

Kimi Raikkonen finished the race in fourth place, the first time this season that he has finished a race ahead of teammate Fernando Alonso and is the last driver to beat their teammate in a race. Lewis Hamilton retired from the race late on, suffering a puncture on lap two after contact with Nico Rosberg, which is about as much as I will say on the incident.

German driver and multiple Le Mans winner Andre Lotterer made his F1 debut at the Belgian GP, he qualified ahead of Marcus Ericsson but retired from the race on the first lap. Bit of a shame for Lotterer as it was a one-time deal and he didn’t get much of a chance in the race to show what he can do in an F1 car.

Not really much to say, Raikkonen’s fourth position moved him from 12th to 10th, dropping both Magnussen and Perez down one position. In the Constructors’ Championship McLaren moved up to fifth ahead of Force India, but only by just two points.

Daniel Ricciardo is slowly lurking up behind the two Mercedes drivers, it’s unlikely, but he’s not out of it yet. There’s a 19 point gap between Rosberg and Hamilton and a 64 point gap between Rosberg and Ricciardo.
