The 2010 Belgian Grand Prix, the thirteenth round of the 2010 Formula One Season, was held at Circuit De Spa-Francorchamps in Spa, Belgium on August 29, 2010. Brazilian driver Rubens Barrichello celebrated his 300th Grand Prix, but Lewis Hamilton came in first, taking the championship lead from pole-sitter Mark Webber (finished second).

Usually, I post several of the more interesting and relevant Formula1.com post links, from final practice to pre-race qualifying and on through to post race reactions in a review list. Since I'm way behind at the moment, the post race press conference and Formula1.com analysis title linked snippets will be all that accompany the highlights video.

1. Lewis Hamilton (McLaren), 1h 29m 04.268s; 2. Mark Webber (Red Bull), 1h 29m 05.839s; 3. Robert Kubica (Renault), 1h 29m 07.761s

Belgium analysis - McLaren strike back at Spa
Posted at Formula1.com on August 30, 2010

Spa was never going to be Red Bull’s favourite circuit, but after clinching their 12th pole of the season on Saturday, things were looking pretty good. That was before Mark Webber's slow start, sporadic showers, a collision between Sebastian Vettel and Jenson Button and two safety-car periods intervened. Amidst all the drama it was McLaren's Lewis Hamilton who kept his head to secure his first win since June - and the lead in the drivers' championship. And with McLaren just one point adrift of Red Bull in the constructors' table, the stage is set for a battle royal at the remaining six rounds. We take a team-by-team look at how a memorable Belgian race played out...
