The Spa race didn’t disappoint those hoping for plenty of action. Both drivers made a good start, immediately moving up a few places. A lot of overtaking and different strategies conditioned the outcome of the race: Kimi Raikkonen pitted twice, while Sebastian Vettel was the only driver to try for a one stop.
With two laps to go, the German was third, but his right rear tyre suddenly let go, robbing him of a place on the podium. Kimi Raikkonen finished seventh, after a great climb up the order. The win went to Lewis Hamilton, who finished ahead of his Mercedes team-mate, Nico Rosberg and Romain Grosjean in the Lotus.
