The three-years wait for a win at Spa-Francorchamps was over as Lewis Hamilton cruised to victory. Mercedes won its grace as Hamilton drove in his W11.
After smashing the track record in qualifying, Hamilton started on pole and drove an impeccable race from the start. Valtteri Bottas and Max Verstappen reached the podium places by finishing second and third respectively.
The Briton extends his lead in the World Championships by 47 points. He is closing in on a 7th World title. Michael Schumacher has won 7 titles, most in F1 history and the 35 year old looks set to equal the record.
The 35 year old star already holds multiple records to his name. He has 93 pole position and 157 podium finishes from 257 starts.
After winning the Belgian Grand Prix, Hamilton is 2 wins away from equalling the record for most wins in F1 history. He has won 5 out of 7 races this season and could equal the record at Mugello in two weeks time.
“It’s not necessarily what everyone always wants to see the Mercedes at the front but we just keep our heads down. It’s an incredible mentality to work around, and we’re continuing to learn about the car.” said the 6 time world champion after the win.
The domination of Mercedes continues in the hybrid era. The world champion looks focused to get his hands on another world title.
