McLaren’s Jenson Button starts with the pole position; the British speedy took his 14th victory in the F1 career. Red Bull racing’s Sebastian Vettel made second place starts from the tenth on the grid. Kimi Raikkonen set third position on the grid.

The dramatic collision made on the start of the race, Grosjean come out to move over on Lewis Hamilton on the run to starting grid strait line and their collision consequence was Hamilton, Grosjean, Alonso, and Perez are eliminated from the race.

Lewis Hamilton talks to Grosjean immediately after the crash and gesticulation at him in a manner that suggested he believed the Lotus driver was to blame. Alonso’s retirement was his first of the season, but whatever the result of the Belgian GP he will still leave the race as the point’s leader.

The Mexican Perez said he was a blameless victim of the crash, which also left his front-row-starting team-mate Kamui Kobayashi with harm.

“It was on the braking for Turn 1 and then suddenly I had a big hit from other drivers and there was nothing I could do,” Perez said. “We basically paid for a mistake from one driver.”

Grosjean speaking to Sky after the crash: “[I had] a very good start and then boom – it was the end of the race. I haven’t seen the images and I need to see them to have any point of view.

“But the main thing is that everybody is OK. That is the most important for me.”… More follow
