Hello, this is F1Minute for the 29th August 2010 - the Belgian Grand Prix.

From the second the lights went out, the chaos began. Webber started on pole but went nowhere off the line, whilst Barrichello collided with Alonso, thus on his 300th Grand Prix, he couldn’t make it past the end of the first lap. Gutted. The Safety Car was deployed whilst the Williams was retrieved.

A bit of rain here, a bit of rain there, the race became all about Vettel as he kept getting mixed up in things. He passed Kubica on the safety car restart, and was investigated. He smashed into Button, and was given a drive through penalty. He swiped past Liuzzi and gave himself a puncture. He survived the race but was out of the points. Elsewhere, Hamilton led throughout, and Kubica was sat behind him until he overshot the box during a pit stop and handed second to Webber.

Finally, Alguersuari picked up a single point finishing 10th but was given a 20 second post-race penalty for cutting the chicane, handing the place to Liuzzi.

What a race.
