The Belgian Grand Prix was about as chaotic as qualifying, but most of the action was over after the first couple of laps. The team thoughts are a fascinating look at what happens when the order is turned on its head.

The Race

The first lap saw four retirements, three pit stops, and a safety car, but thankfully the rest of the race quietened a little. There was still room for drive through penalties, fuel rig problems and wheel spinners.

Several of the teams are happier than they have been all year, but there is still some wonderment about how the order got so messed up. Still, Ferrari are happy, and Force India have finally got some points!
