Buttoned Up




The Belgian Grand Prix couldn’t have been a more grand affair as McLaren’s Jenson Button took to the race to his name. Both Alonso and Lewis Hamilton, as always, were in the top contenders favored in the race however both failed to make their mark. This second win of the season comes as a much-awaited relief after his last one was back in March.

“It hasn’t been an easy year for me. We’re going to enjoy this for a little while longer before we head to Monza and hopefully do the same.”

Sebastian Vettel, the defending champion, took the second place after overcoming an accident and Kimi Raikkonen took the final spot on the podium. The fourth place finally came to Force India’s Nico Hulkenberg. He combated several other drivers including Schumacher to seize the position.

Button was too occupied in his own track to notice the mayhem that was caused behind him. The turmoil was elicited by Lotus driver Romain Grosjean  and with him were trapped Sergio Perez, and Grosjean. Grosjean did sneak into a little opening and dodged Hamilton’s McLaren until both the cars got stuck in a havoc and the cars went spinning. Button however was oblivious to all the chaos at the time being away from it all and finished with great satisfaction. He stood by his vehicle with pride, smiling and waving.

Where Alonso tried to put on a even expression, Hamilton was far more aggressive after the race. He went onto confront Grosjean at the end of the race and the two shared a rather bitter moment. This was the same circuit where Schumacher had debuted 21 years ago.

There is a possibility that Grosjean’s undertaking may be put under investigation as he changed his movement as he took on the gap earlier in the race.

While the others picked their fights and disappointments, a satisfied Vettel was content to have made it second.

“The car was quite good in the race and we were able to pick up some pace. It was a fantastic race, great to come second.”

Taking the championship by a margin of 14 seconds, Button rejoices in his victory.
