So the 2019 Belgian grand prix certainly gave us an entertaining race, It had great action, a strategical battle up front and in the end a winner that really left everyone feeling a little bit better after the tragic death of Anthoine Hubert. In this video I will give my thoughts on the race and have one last word on a weekend that for all its delights will be remembered for the death of yet another young driver.

Conclusions from the Belgian Grand Prix
The brightest light in F1 wins on a dark weekend for racing, Ferrari go old school, Red Bull’s newcomer makes a statement, Haas perfect the art of going backwards, and McLaren have a great race – but for only 43 laps of a 44-lap race.
A worthy victor on a dark weekend for racing
Charles Leclerc now sports some facial hair. A bit of growth on his chin and a moustache befitting of such heroes as Graham Hill from one of F1’s golden ages. There has always been a classical elegance to Leclerc. He is a racer who believes in racing the proper way.
Much like the moustached stars of old, tragedy has often cast a shadow of the young Monagasque. The death of Leclerc’s godfather, friend and mentor Jules Bianchi in 2015 left an indelible mark on him while also accelerating his ascent to become a Ferrari works driver.
Leclerc finally won an F1 grand prix on Sunday, manfully fending off a late attack from Lewis Hamilton. Although Leclerc achieved a semblance of redemption after having race wins snatched from him in Bahrain and Austria, this weekend was not really about him; but rather about Anthoine Hubert who was killed in Saturday’s F2 race at Spa.
A class act both on and off the track, Leclerc paid tribute to Hubert by pointing to the sky after the race. “We have lost a friend first of all, and it’s very difficult in these situations so I would like to dedicate this win to him,” Leclerc said. “I can’t fully enjoy my first victory but it is a memory that will live with me forever.”
Ferrari win but weaknesses remain
“Aerodynamics are for people who can’t build engines,” Ferrari founder Enzo Ferrari once said. If Leclerc is a classical driver of the old school, there is a sense that the Prancing Horse’s current strengths of power and straightline speed are also a throwback to a different age. Even with DRS and a slipstream, Hamilton in the Mercedes was still just 5kph faster than the Ferraris.
While Spa’s long straights played to the strengths of the men from Maranello, familiar issues emerged through the race weekend. Mercedes were much closer to Ferrari in race trim, the Silver Arrows were softer on their tyres, they were around 0.5 seconds faster than the red cars in the twisty and technical second sector, and the German outfit also got the better of their rivals on the strategy front by pushing Sebastian Vettel into an early pit stop.
The net result was that Vettel had to make a second stop for rubber, costing Ferrari a potential 1-2 finish that had indeed looked like an odds-on certainty through much of the weekend.
Leclerc is most definitely the real deal but right now it is obvious that Ferrari are not.
Albon makes a statement but watch out for the Torpedo
Alex Albon first race for Red Bull after his promotion was compromised by a grid penalty (not of his making) that left him starting 17th. Starting on an offset strategy on mediums with much of the field on soft rubber, the race came to Albon in the later stage when that was inverted. On softs he scythed through the field, making the overtake of the race by undercutting Daniel Ricciardo at Rivage before overtaking the Renault on the outside of the next corner.
It is true that Lando Norris’s late drama as well as Max Verstappen’s first-lap retirement helped elevate Albon up the order, but he capitalised to maximise his result and finish an impressive P5. It was exactly the sort of aggressive yet decisive approach to racing that his predecessor Pierre Gasly struggled to execute at Red Bull in the first part of the season.
Daniil Kvyat in the Toro Rosso, meanwhile, also enjoyed a brilliant day, and managed to make his way up to an impressive P7 after starting 19th.
