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.”
