Belgium 2012 - Race results // Button takes a strong lights to flag victory, as first lap carnage takes out Alonso

Published by Christine Blachford

The racing in Belgium is known to be chaotic, but that's usually down to the weather. Today the sun shone over Spa, but the action still managed to deliver. A first lap incident caused by Romain Grosjean took out four cars in the first corner - leaving Button unchallenged at the front as he led the way to the chequered flag. Great racing occurred behind, but it was Vettel and Räikkönen that joined him on the podium.

    That explains everything.... Keep forgoting to listen to Christine's predictions before I put my money on who's going to win....

    I did pick Alonso and Hamilton for 1st and 2nd....for the win, not for first ones DNF'ed......

  • I think Ima stop predicting now.

    No. You have to keep going. Don't think it of jinxing. Think of it as predicting bad stuff. None of the rest of us can predict anything. You at least can consistently predict bad stuff. If you can tune your predictions a little to predict good stuff you could be the best predictioner ever
