Lewis Hamilton, Nico Rosberg, Mercedes, Spa-Francorchamps, 2014The Belgian Grand Prix saw another fine win for Daniel Ricciardo, a thrilling four-way battle between Fernando Alonso, Sebastian Vettel and the McLarens, and an all-Finnish fight for third.

But one subject dominated the post-race discussion on Twitter – particularly when Lewis Hamilton told the media Nico Rosberg had admitted to ‘hitting him on purpose’.

Here are the best Tweets from Sunday at Spa-Francorchamps.

Support races

Red Bull’s Alex Lynn added to his championship lead in the GP3 sprint race, while Williams’ Felipe Nasr took victory in GP2.

The race

The Belgian Grand Prix was dry, but before the start it seemed like rain was to be expected.

Andre Lotterer was getting ready for his maiden Formula One start, but it would all be over soon. The team later said the loss of power might have been caused by him running over a kerb at Blanchimont.

Kevin Magnussen defended aggressively – first against Nico Hulkenberg, then against three world champions.

Hamilton eventually parked his car six laps from home.

After the chequered flag

Daniel Ricciardo took another victory for Red Bull, his third of the season, as the Mercedes incident was centre of attention.


Drivers react

Kamui Kobayashi was not at Spa, where rumours were flying about other potential occupants of his seat. How many races does he have left in 2014?
