Win for Vettel And Close Call For Hamilton In Belgium

Sebastian Vettel reclaimed the Number One spot at The Belgian Grand Prix last weekend. It was his first win after failing to come first in the last three races. However it was at the renowned Spa-Francorchamps circuit where the German secured his latest victory. The RBR-Renault driver has vowed not to rest in his laurels this late in the season; despite being ahead on the leader board. It was evident by the way Vettel guided his team mate Mark Webber to take first and second place respectively. They were ahead of McLaren’s Jenson Button who came third.

The Brit left from 13th place on the starting grid. He ended up overtaking Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso, with two laps left to take third spot. The Spanish racer, on the other hand, fought furiously with Vettel for first place. But he had apparently fallen victim to his team’s decision to utilize a smaller quota of tyres. It was a strategy that didn’t seem to work.

But coming third seems to have put a spanner in Buttons plans to catch up with Vettel.

However all eyes seemed to be on his McLaren team mate Lewis Hamilton. The British driver was involved in a frightening collision. His vehicle slammed into a barrier at the thirteenth lap. This was after he reportedly clipped the Sauber driven by Japan’s Kamui Kobayshi. Fortunately Hamilton emerged from the collision unscathed. But the incident resulted in his retirement from the race. It is also believed to have pretty much put him out of contention for the championship.

It is now on to the next stop on the motor racing calendar. Racing fans can travel to Monza for the Italian Grand Prix, The Formula 1 Gran Premio Santander D’Italia 2011. It takes places on Sunday the 11th of September 2011 at 14:00.
