Often start of the race in the GP of Belgium 2016, all the races at Spa are especially interesting, but in this race has been especially busy. The first thing that we have seen is a bad start for Verstappen, who was getting into the interior to minimise the problems, when it has been touched in the first corner, with Räikkönen and it has been opened by touching with a Vettel that has come very strong on such a curve. The result has been damage to Vettel puncture for Kimi, and broken front wing for Max.
on the other hand, Jenson Button has also had to abandon, a penalty for the briton who has not done well in his 300 GP. On the other hand, we have seen problems for Carlos Sainz Jr., that has had a blowout on his rear tire and even though it seemed that I could reach the box, his rear wing is broken as well and had to leave. Ericsson came out from the pit, but his career has not been positive, having to abandon also the start. Also Wehrlein has had to stay out of the race, when touched to the Button (that why your withdrawal)…
Another of the strong points of the race has been the strong impact of Magnussen, which has had a severe accident impacting very strong against barriers and has made exit Safety Car and finally decide to pull out the red flag. The car has been completely destroyed, but the pilot seems to have gone for his own walk. It has had to be quite a shock, since it hits a little to see the cars in that area (Eau Rouge) pass so quickly with that down-climb. We hope that the pilot is good, since it has been out a little limp, so you might have a leg a little damaged (confirmed: has a significant injury in his ankle). We will be attentive to the news, especially taking into account that the appointment of Monza is in the next week…
therefore, following the red flag has been given another output, giving rise to a new career start, and may repair the car if necessary, and be able to change the tire, giving another new departure from the positions in which were behind the Safety Car. In addition to that, the cars have been able to save fuel and reach the end of the race without problems, it is more, some have taken advantage of the break for the red flag to put the engines in gear and “splurge” a little bit of gasoline to get rid of some grams of face-to weigh less. What are the results? Judge yourself…

Impressive GP of Belgium, Spa always leaves us a good feeling and this time it has not been less. We will continue providing breaking news in ActualidadMotor and of course I hope the next appointment, which will take place in Italy. You already know that the September 4, tap on the circuit of Monza, a very fast track and that also comes well to the characteristics of the cars of the two spaniards, so I hope that will minimize their deficits in these long straight lines and we can see good performances and then go to circuits that are most conducive.
