Jenson Button had a perfect race to win his first Belgian Grand Prix at Spa, but the race started with disaster for several of the front runners who ended up in a heap at La Source.

Your body was paralysed? You surely have be having a giraffe? Lol. Bad crash but it didn't paralyse me!! That comment really tickled me.

Anyway....awesome race best this year probably?? Was disappointed Hamilton and alonso were out, clearly grosjean is gonna take a penalty, pretty poor manoeuvre on his part. Good to see the idiot Maldonado isn't losing his touch, more *****ic behaviour, amazing he managed to fit it all in in only 2 laps!! He seriously needs to go....

Driver of the day for me has to be Hulkenberg, brilliant drive was hoping all the way through he'd be on the box. Brilliant drive by button too, clearly the rear wing worked!

Perfect afternoon and perfect weekend Mr Button.
Thank you very much indeed.
Great reward for my continued faith in you.
I am now going to have a celebratory drinkypoo, or three.
Yes haters I know, it was all luck etc etc etc bla bla bla
But guess what? We don't give a monkey's.
Jenson won pole and Jenson won the race end of story
Nothing you can say will change it
Suck it up

steve and jeanalesi. there is no way that lulu could be blamed in this incident! he held a straight line and grosjean just turned into him. there was nowhere to go.
cant help but feel that the sudden and premature start by maldo, caught so many by surprise, and may have been a factor in the overall incident.

as for others. good drives by button, seb , nico h and flip. disgraceful display by schumi. just doesnt seem to know what he is doing. also, people used to complain about trulli holding others up, senna/lalli seems to have taken over that mantle, complete with some double moves.

richard, Pastor Maldonado's season from hell continues. He got a 5 grid penalty for the jump start AND another 5 place demotion for colliding with Petrov.

richard, indeed LH did not initiate it, but he did nothing to avoid it. By slowing down and pulling right he could have avoided it, losing a place or two probably. Now he lost all. That's the difference in thinking and seeing the big picture as pointed out earlier in this thread.

dude. this was the start of a race. why on earth should lulu back of and say "after you claude". even if he did try to back off, grosjean would still have been entangled with him. i guess that you do not watch much motor racing.
