Things go from bad to worse at Ferrari, halo proves its worth in George Russell crash and the F1 season is at risk of becoming a bore for fans – THINGS WE LEARNED from the Belgian Grand Prix

Mercedes’ dominance over the rest of the grid showed no signs of being under threat for the 44 laps at Spa as the six-time world champion coasted beyond the chequered flag to take his career total to 89 race wins. For the season he is up to five wins from the opening seven races. Lewis Hamilton took his fifth win from the opening seven races at the Belgian Grand Prix. But aside from Hamilton’s procession from pole to the race win, Spa threw up a handful of other intriguing sub-plots. ‘I cannot speak for the fans now, but having been a fan in the (Michael) Schumacher era, I know what it is like,’ Hamilton said. Hamilton (middle) has won five of the opening seven races and it is becoming too predictable. Valtteri Bottas (right) won the first race but is not going to push Hamilton for the drivers’ title. More records will tumble in a season where Hamilton is so utterly dominant.
