In today’s blog we will be analysing and reviewing the classic wet/dry race around Spa Francorchamps for the 2010 Belgian Grand Prix. At the start Red Bull driver Mark Webber was so slow off of the line especially compared to Mclaren Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton and Renault driver Robert Kubica who occupied the top 2 positions at the start of the race with lap one ending with Williams driver Rubens Barrichello crashing into Scuderia Ferrari driver Fernando Alonso who was lucky his Belgian Grand Prix wasn’t ended because of this. Robert Kubica though would lose his 2nd place athe start of lap 2 after going off at Eau Rouge allowing the leaders Mclaren team mate Jenson Button to take over 2nd position with Red Bull driver Sebastian Vettel also taking a position of the polish driver. And soon enough Vettel would catch Jenson Button but sadly for Vettel he lost all control of the situation by hitting Button’s car and ending his race with Vettel having to pit for a new front wing.

Meanwhile for the race leader Mclaren Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton he was seemingly cruising to victory especially after making his first and seemingly only pit stop of the race with Hamilton rejoining easily into the lead of the Belgian Grand Prix. But the wet weather that affected the early laps of this 2010 race in Spa would return and give Lewis Hamilton who was leading the Belgian Grand Prix the freight of his life as he went off at Rivage and almost hit the tyre wall which certainly would have ended his race. And this freight would force not only Mclaren driver Lewis Hamilton into the pits but also Red Bull driver Mark Webber and Renault driver Robert Kubica who was jumped in the pit stop phase by Webber. The rain became so bad that Ferrari driver Fernando Alonso was forced to retire hitting a tyre wall around the Spa circuit but the wet climate would not prevent Mclaren Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton from winning the 2010 Belgian Grand Prix. Spa Francorchamps once again threw up another classic race with its infamous wet weather.
