2016 Belgian GP Post-Race Stats

In the first five laps of the Belgian GP five cars retired from the race, so it was a little bit of a crazy start.

In the first ten laps there were two safety car/virtual safety car periods and a red flag from Kevin Magnussen’s big accident, luckily he got out with little more than a sore ankle. Lewis Hamilton had a tough weekend, with a 60 place grid penalty for power unit infringements, starting 21st on the grid and thanks to not pitting when the safety cars came out he gained a lot of positions and then had a free tyre change during the red flag, helping him get to third before half the race was even over.

Nico Rosberg started the race on pole, led for every lap and then took the flag. Daniel Ricciardo finished second, leading to Mark Webber drinking champagne from Ricciardo’s shoe, and Hamilton third with the fastest lap of the race. Fernando Alonso started the race in 22nd with a 60 place penalty, finishing in an impressive seventh place.


Only a couple of changes again, Sebastian Vettel retakes fourth from teammate Raikkonen, meanwhile Nico Hulkenberg continues his tradition and changes position yet again, now up to ninth dropping Massa to tenth.


After being down in eighth at one point Force India have taken fourth place in the Constructors’ Championship from Williams, and with Alonso’s seventh place he has taken McLaren ahead of Toro Rosso for sixth.
