Todays Formula 1 race from the fantastic Spa Francorchamps in Belgium was one of the best I have seen in a long time.

The action started already in the first corner when Max Verstappen went for gap that never existed, quite immature move after such a poor start.

Max Verstappen also drove like an immature “kid” on several occasions through the race, putting people of track here and there.

Kevin Magnussen had a huge accident on the top of Eau Rouge. I think he was “lucky” that the car hit the barrier in the angle it did, it could have ended much worse than it did. According to the Renault F1 team on twitter Kevin most probably has hurt his left ankle, more information will follow after the check at the hospital has been completed.

Rosberg took a well deserved win in front of a very happy Ricciardo, Lewis Hamilton ended on P3 after help with a “free” tyre change under the red flag.

My money today was on Hulkenberg and Kimi, so no luck there 🙂
