The Belgian Grand Prix was another humdinger, with Lewis Hamilton winning after a controlled drive, but behind him there was wild action as the rest of the field scrapped for the points. In the end it was a Mercedes 1-2, but the battle for third place was terrific with Sebastian Vettel gambling on a one-stop race, while Romain Grosjean charged from eighth on the grid to third, on a weekend when the team is teetering on the brink of financial disaster. His two-stop strategy meant that he had the advantage in the closing laps. Romain hunted down the Ferrari, as the laps ticked away, and was poised to pass when Vettel’s gamble failed and his tyre gave up the ghost. Behind them, there was more fine racing as Red Bull, Force India, Williams and Sauber battled for points. Grosjean ended up the star of the day – after an inspirational performance.
