"Until 1970, it was run on a fearsome, much longer incarnation of the circuit (14.9km at its maximum length) than the contemporary one,"

I was there in 1972 for the 1000K, and it was still 8 miles round...

Only me that felt a bit sorry for Jolyon then? Hope he doesn't end up with a gearbox pen as well.

I have never seen the tyres wobble like that. The slow motion footage shown during qualifying of the rear tyres contact patch (and the rear of the cars) wobbling side to side is very concerning. The vibrations could lead to car failure and that can be very concerning here in Spa and the next race in Monza due to the speeds reached.

That was a very clean start. Alonso up from 10th to 7th.

That's Verstappen's race run. It looks like another engine failure.

The first FCY of the race. Debris on the track from the two Force India's coming together. Both Hamilton and Vettel pit.

Congrats to Lewis on winning what was a rather dull race. He closes the gap on Vettel.

He certainly deserved it but I think the puncture and the debrief with the team may be more painful than anything the stewards were likely to do, which may have figured in their decision.

True enough I guess, but as was commented upon, minor nudges in corners or pushing people off in relatively innocuous areas gets penalised, a bigger shunt there could have been catastrophic.....

In Hungary Max recieved a penalty for running into his teammate by accident.

now Perez pushes his teammate into the wall TWICE: "no further action"

this makes no sense at all
