Formula One: Max Verstappen of Red Bull wins shortest race in history at Belgian Grand Prix

Belgian GP

Brussels, August 30: Max Verstappen was declared the winner of the rain-hit Belgian Grand Prix on Sunday (August 29) after drivers had completed two laps behind the safety car following a long delay.

The original start never happened as teams were ordered back into the pits after two formation laps showed driving was too dangerous in the pouring rain.

The Spa-Franchorchamps race finally got underway more than three hours later in a planned one-hour format but was red-flagged again after two laps (the minimum distance required to have a classification), with half points awarded for only the sixth time in F1 history.
