Conclusions after the Belgian Grand Prix

Conclusions after the Belgian Grand Prix

At Red Bull they showed muscle at Spa and Ferrari did or could, besides going wrong again with Charles Leclerc; Verstappen was superlative in Belgium

Red Bull played its cards and decided to mount a Power Unit, almost completely new for Max Verstappen’s car, which squeezed resources and won emphatically. For Checo Pérez, it’s an unprecedented podium in his career, but the Mexican does not leave completely satisfied, due to the difference his teammate has made over the weekend.

Another weekend to forget at Alfa Romeo, with Valtteri Bottas retiring on lap two after going off the track to avoid a collision with Nicolas Latifi. For his part, Zhou Guanyu started from the back of the grid as part of his unit change penalties and had a less than memorable event, finishing just 14th. Few things to remember for Alfa Romeo at Spa, just after announcing that 2023 will be its last year in the series.– Raphael Zamorano

Alpha Tauri

It looked like another weekend to end empty-handed, however, Pierre Gasly picked up two vital points from the pit lane. Few things to say about Yuki Tsunoda with performances that stand out for their absence at the bottom of the grid. — Sebastien Aceves


With a phenomenal start to the race, Fernando Alonso catapulted himself into the lead of the race only to be involved moments later in an incident with Lewis Hamilton which cost him several places in the running order, adding to the historic rivalry between the two pilots. In the second part of the race, he made a significant comeback which allowed him to position himself fifth, two places ahead of his teammate Esteban Ocon, who maintained a regular pace throughout Sunday despite a start far on the grid, penalized by speed changes. your unit. — Raphael Zamorano

Aston Martin

A lot has happened for Aston Martin over the past month, but none of it has really been an improvement on the track. Sebastian Vettel announced his retirement, the team signed Fernando Alonso and the latter unleashed a storm on Alpine which has still not dissipated. Vettel gave his best to finish 8th in Belgium, which really seems like a lot considering Stroll finished 11th, more than a second behind Williams’ Alexander Albon. — Erick Cervantes There


Carlos Sainz fought as hard as he could against both Red Bulls, but in training it was clear the Austrians would have the advantage in the Ardennes. However, they got it wrong again in a decision with Charles Leclerc, which cost them points. Ferrari lost another weekend to get closer to Red Bull and prolong the championship as much as possible.– Victor Macin Serrano

to play


Alex Pombo with the analysis of the most important actions of the circuit of Spa-Francorchamps.


No importance of Haas cars at Spa. They have never come close to challenging for a point and there are already three competitions in a row in which they sit on the sidelines. — Victor Macin Serrano


Those of Woking did not have the best of the relaunch of the championship, since they did not add a single point at Spa-Francorchamp. For half the race, Daniel Ricciardo was in the points zone after starting in seventh position, but reality caught up with him and he finished in fifteenth place. His smile is gone and he seems destined to roam the lower midfield until the end of the season when he leaves the team. Meanwhile, Lando Norris was among those sanctioned for changing components. He started seventeenth and finished in 12th place, remaining five seconds from the points area. — Richard Honey


The early withdrawal of Lewis Hamilton did not allow us to see the full potential of the “Silver Arrows” for the second half of the season, if what George Russell did was not an individual achievement, then we will see a very good car that could end up in second place in the championship on both its own merits and the implosion of Ferrari which can be seen in the near future. — Erick Cervantes There

Red Bull

The World Cup is virtually doomed. Max Verstappen runs to another galaxy. He currently has no rival and will hardly have a fight at the end of the season with exceptional performances like today. In addition to the impending ‘Mad Max’ title, Red Bull can smile to have a great delivering partner like Checo Pérez. Paint a historic year to revive old glories and take both World Cups to Milton Keynes.
. — Sebastien Aceves


Alex Albon once again defended the whole team. After nine long races, the Thai-born driver entered the points zone and also experienced the emotional moment of the weekend by qualifying for Q3. He started sixth due to penalties for seven riders, but got the most out of the FW44 and eventually finished tenth. Meanwhile, Nicholas Latifi is still one of the weakest on the grid and he only made headlines by causing Valtteri Bottas to retire. — Richard Honey
