VIDEO: Carnage as Button wins the Belgium Grand Prix

by Josh Powell | September 2, 2012

I’d say Fernando Alonso might have needed a clean pair of underwear after this moment at the first corner of the Belgium Grand Prix.

Romain Grosjean was more aggressive than Joey Barton on a night on the town and clattered into Lewis Hamilton causing this massive accident at the start of the race. Grosjean, Hamilton, Alonso and Perez all had their race ended and Hamilton was clearly furious with the recklessness of Grosjean.

Fortunately Alonso was pictured happy in the Ferrari garage later on in the race but it cannot have been a nice moment for the Spaniard.

In the race itself Jenson Button led from pole to win, with Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikonnen joining him on the podium.

Alonso stays on top of the Drivers Championship with 164 points and is 6/5 to lift the trophy. Vettel has narrowed the gap and is 24 points behind him on 140. The German is 5/2 to retain his title this year.

His team-mate Mark Webber is a whopping 12/1 despite having 132 points and Kimi Raikkonen is one point behind him on 131 but is expected to make more of a challenge for the title and is 6/1.

Englishmen Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button are 7/1 and 22/1 respectively with eight races to go in the season.
