Belgium GP: Ricciardo ends Mercedes domination after Rosberg’s mistakes

Red Bull driver Daniel Ricciardo beat Nico Rosberg to win an incident-packed Belgian Grand Prix on Sunday, while Rosberg extended his championship lead over Mercedes teammate Lewis Hamilton in acrimonious circumstances.

Finnish driver Valtteri Bottas was third.

The increasingly strained relations at Mercedes could now get even worse after Rosberg effectively ended Hamilton’s race chances with a risky overtaking move that saw him clip and puncture the Briton’s left tire.

Hamilton retired with five laps remaining after his team noticed some further degradation.

It was a second straight win for Ricciardo after victory at the Hungarian GP last month and the third of an impressive season. The Australian continues to outshine his Red Bull teammate Sebastian Vettel who was fifth.

Mercedes Non-Executive Chairma and ex triple time world champion Niki Lauda admits that the lap two incident was Rosberg’s mistakes.
