F1: Nico Rosberg wins at Spa
A frenetic 2016 Formula 1 Belgian Grand Prix saw Mercedes’ Nico Rosberg take a commanding win from Red Bull’s Daniel Ricciardo, with the second Silver Arrow of Lewis Hamilton a fighting third, having started from the back row of the grid.
Force India’s Nico Hulkenberg again missed out on that elusive maiden podium, finishing fourth ahead of team mate Sergio Perez and the Ferrari of Sebastian Vettel, while Fernando Alonso – last on the grid – was a superb seventh for McLaren.
The Williams of Felipe Massa and Valtteri Bottas were eighth and tenth respectively, split by Kimi Raikkonen who completed the top ten in the second Ferrari.
For Rosberg it looked like a stroll in the Ardennes as he scored his sixth victory of the year, the 20th of his career, and his first at Spa-Francorchamps, but for pretty much everyone else the race was a bitty, sometimes ill-tempered affair.
