Race results - Belgian Grand Prix 2015 - Hamilton and Rosberg joined on the podium by Grosjean

Nico Rosberg dropped back off the start line for the Belgian Grand Prix, which meant he was unable to challenge for victory. Although he did recover to finish second, he couldn't take the fight to his teammate out front. Romain Grosjean and Sebastian Vettel battled for the final podium position with the Lotus winning after a less-than-stellar strategy call by Ferrari.

Nico Hülkenberg was unable to start the race due to a mechanical issue that forced a second formation lap whilst his Force India was pushed to the pit lane. Pastor Maldonado, Daniel Ricciardo and Carlos Sainz all retired as well, which pushed McLaren up to 13th and 14th after both had reasonably good races.
