"There was no room for error or mistake" — Lewis Hamilton

28 Agosto 2017, 11:43 | Cornelio Vivanco

The truth at Spa was that he won the race by taking pole position and maintaining track position, and that Ferrari had the edge on race pace all weekend, despite Mercedes bringing an engine upgrade. They had the better pace today but fortunately I was able to stay ahead.

"With the safety car I felt a chance but it wasn't good enough chance". Magnussen locked up his brakes and ran wide at the final chicane on lap 33, finishing outside of the points.

The Mercedes driver crossed the line 2.3 seconds ahead of Daniel Ricciardo of Red Bull, Finn Kimi Raikkonen in the second Ferrari and his compatriot Valtteri Bottas in the second Mercedes.

Lewis Hamilton criticized the decision to deploy the Safety Car during Sunday's Formula 1 race in Belgium, believing it was done in the interests of creating a closer battle at the front of the field.

The Spa track, nestled in the Ardennes forest, is the longest in F1 at seven kilometres and the race is often full of incident, especially when it rains. The best reaction from the Mercedes camp that was announced just before Vettel's extension was that by Hamilton. I was waiting for Lewis to make a mistake - and he didn't - and he was waiting for me - and I didn't.

Some other highlights of the Belgian GP include a couple of encounters between the two Force India cars.

Four laps later, the safety car peeled in, and Hamilton, as he did in Azerbaijan earlier this summer, began to bunch the pack. There was no room for nothing and Lewis did a fantastic job.

Esteban Ocon salvaged points for Force India with ninth after twice colliding with team-mate Sergio Perez who was forced to retire.

Ricciardo managed to hold down third place while Vettel pushed hard and stayed within striking distance of Hamilton, but couldn't find that little bit extra to get by.

"It was good fun, it was really intense", said Vettel after the race.

The reality is that Mercedes are all too aware that their cars tend not to work so well at the low-speed, high downforce circuits. That was to the disappointment of the fans, of which there were many supporting Verstappen. But one does wonder how Vettel would fare in a team where he has an equal driver, like Hamilton had in Nico Rosberg? "This is just a test".

Kimi it had to be. "I have no protection now.anyway, it doesn't change my life". It is really frustrating. He now equals Michael Schumacher for top spot starts and seemed genuinely emotional at finally drawing level with Schumi's longstanding record of 68 poles.

Extraordinarily, on lap 30, this became a self-fulfilling prophecy, as Ocon touched Perez's right rear, ripping off the Frenchman's front wing and shredding the Mexican's tyre.

"It hasn't come up".
