The Team extends gap over P3 in the Constructors’ Championship ahead of summer break
Lewis Hamilton finished fourth and George Russell sixth in today’s Belgian Grand Prix.
Starting third on the soft tyre, Lewis avoided contact as the field squeezed into turn one to maintain his grid position.
George, lining up eighth on the medium compound, lost out however as he was boxed in behind the damaged McLaren of Piastri and dropped to P11.
As the race settled into its rhythm, Lewis dropped behind Verstappen to P4 before stopping for the Medium tyre on lap 12. George extended his stint until lap 24, switching to the Soft tyre.
George dropped to P16 but quickly made his way back through the field and up to P6, managing the soft tyre to the end. Lewis boxed for a second set of soft tyres but was unable to undercut Leclerc ahead. He then took a new medium tyre on the penultimate lap and set the fastest lap of the race.
As we head into the summer break, the Team has extended its advantage over P3 in the Constructors’ Championship to 51 points.
