“Flawless” Ricciardo Wins at Spa

26MOTORSPORTS-image-superJumbo

Driving a flawless Formula One race on Sunday, Red Bull’s Daniel Ricciardo became the first Australian to win at the Belgian Spa-Francorchamps track since 1960. Sir Jack Brabham was the last to claim that honor. Nico Rosberg, the pole position winner, came in a frustrated second, and Valttieri Bottas, of Williams, was third.

Rosberg, whose Mercedes suffered front wing damage on the second lap in a collision with his teammate, Lewis Hamilton, was unable to recoup the time he lost making a pit stop for a new nose section. Hamilton was leading at the time, but one of his tires was punctured in the mishap, and he eventually had to retire from the race. Hamilton collected no points, and Rosberg picked up 18 — as well as the criticism of his team’s bosses — pushing his lead over Hamilton in the championship standings to 220-191.
