McLaren’s Jenson Button Star of Belgian Grand Prix

“Jenson Button salvaged McLaren’s day after an explosive start to the Belgian race saw team mate Lewis Hamilton eliminated along with championship points leader Fernando Alonso, Sauber’s Sergio Perez and Lotus’s Romain Grosjean,” an article on the official Formula 1 website wrote after the race. The website story continued, “After debris from their collision was cleared away, and the safety car went back in, Button owned the race and sped home to a 13.6s victory – his first at Spa – over Sebastian Vettel who drove with great commitment and a clever strategy to take a supremely valuable second for Red Bull. Behind them, car problems kept Lotus’s Kimi Raikkkonen from launching his expected challenge, but the Finn also took home valuable points on a day when Alonso’s lead suddenly began to look vulnerable. His team mate Grosjean was subsequently handed a one-race ban and a 50,000 Euro fine for triggering the first-corner mayhem.” Read the full article here. | Raymond Matt, CFP, CLU, TEP, CHS
