Ferrari's Charles Leclerc won the Formula 1 (F1) Belgian Grand Prix on Sunday at the Spa-Francorchamps race track in Stavelot, retaining the lead he had after starting in pole position. The win marks the Monegasque's first ever F1 grand prix victory.

Mercedes' drivers Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas came in second and third, respectively. The Brit, Hamilton, came close to overtaking Leclerc in the last lap of the race, but was unable to after a yellow flag was shown following Italian Antonio Giovinazzi's crash.

Hamilton remains first in the drivers' championship.
