Button won in Belgium his second victory of the 2012 season

Start the Belgian Grand Prix 2012 started with a serious accident, initiated by, is far from being the first time this season, turned out to be Roman. The car caught the Frenchman rear wheel front wheel cars of Lewis Hamilton, after which the British McLaren a little off and caught the stern Renault. Unmanaged fireballs flew to the first turn, where the victims were two riders – Sergio Perez started the fourth and championship leader Fernando Alonso. The latter is not immediately able to leave a broken car, but fortunately, with the Spaniard everything was in order. Thus, barely begun, once the race has lost four of its members. Moreover, the race came shortly Pastor Maldonado, who the day before was stripped of his third place in qualifying for blocking Nico. And at the start of the Venezuelan I moved a little earlier than the time to go out red lights, plus his hooked taken off Grosjean with Hamilton. Do not escaped the fate of contact with the emitted and a second pilot Sauber Kamui Kobayashi. Thus, starting from the second and fourth places, the Swiss team could count on excellent results in Belgium and in the end everything turned into a complete collapse, not the fault of its drivers or technology. In the absence of many machines and strong average team in the fight including the pilot, which was not always possible to perform well this year. But there are still riders finished in the top teams, with the first of them crossed the finish line half a league winner of Jenson Button. To Jenson’s victory in Belgium was the second of the season, but it is very welcome. The first race the Englishman won the first stage in Australia, and to a certain point, the pilot McLaren started bad luck. In the last race the situation began to change for the better, and now, finally – a victory. And not just to win but to win with a lead from start to finish, which this season has not been. And I could get a grand slam, but the best lap of the race showed Bruno Senna, who put a fresh set of tires for a few laps before the finish, when the tanks of cars was already low on fuel. The same pit stop and made ​​Michael Schumacher, in the Mercedes originally planned to travel the distance with only pit stop, but the rubber did not survive. Seven-time world champion, who in Belgium had his three hundredth Grand Prix, fought with dignity throughout the race and could claim almost on the podium, but in the end finished only seventh. The winner had only one pit-top, the same trick was a success and a silver cup Sebastian, an excellent performance in Spa. Starting from tenth place, the young German champion had a lot of overtaking, attacked from start to finish, that will be compensated – Seb came in second place in the standings. Another podium for third place this time of Kimi Raikkonen. Previously, the Finn with Belgium had a special relationship. For seven of the Grand Prix, he scored four wins, while the remaining three races for Kimi ended retirements. So finish on the podium in the absence of victory was a great result. But who has managed the most of the situation by gathering strong contenders at the start – so this is Nico. German driver in the beginning of the race for a long time kept the second position, but the finish brought his car Force India to fourth place, earning a lot of points for the team, experiencing recent serious financial difficulties. Benefited siuatsiey pilots Toro Rosso – are both finished in the points: Jean Eric eighth, and Daniel Riccardo – ninth. Zamnul top ten another Pilot Force India – the Scot Paul di Resta. The lack of leadership Scuderia Ferrari’s Felipe Massa is well made. Brazilian attacked at a distance, he did not admit mistakes and finished the race fifth, ahead of Mark Webber (6th place) on a fast machine. The next race will be held on at least the legendary Monza circuit in Italy for exactly one week. The gap between Vettel on Alonso is only 24 points, so the intrigue in the championship after the withdrawal of Spaniard has deteriorated.
