Verstappen won the 2 laps race.
"I think today the big credit goes to the fans around the track who stayed here the whole day in the rain, wind and cold" ~ Max Verstappen
Nobody race for real, the weather was terrible at Spa-Francorchamps, raining without stop and the cars could not start the race. After waiting for more than 3 hours with the hope of having better safety conditions to race, unfortunately that cars have accomplished only two laps behind the safety car and it was over.
The final result was pretty much the same as the grid start, with an exception for Sergio Peréz, who crashed his car on the way to the grid, but later allowed to rejoin, after his team rebuilt his car's suspension, so he could start from the last position, still with no chance to race against the other drivers.
Well, the points were given in half, according to the regulations, so Max Verstappen won, with George Russell in 2nd, an unexpected result, just ahead of Lewis Hamilton in 3rd.
Riccardo in 4th, Vettel in 5th, Gasly in 6th, Ocon in 7th, Leclerc in 8th, Latifi in 9th and Sainz in 10th, completing the top 10.
There was no extra point for the Drivers Championship this time (2021 DHL Fastest Lap Award).
At the end, we can say it was good for Verstappen and Red Bull, that were able to reduce their difference to Hamilton and Mercedes, respectively.
