Spa-Francorchamps: McLaren Mercedes driver Jenson Button won his second race of the season at the crash-marred Belgian Grand Prix on Sunday, after Formula One championship leader Fernando Alonso and Lewis Hamilton forced out after a spectacular pileup at the start.

Red Bull Racing driver Sebastian Vettel of Germany, finished second while Lotus driver Kimi Raikkonen of Finland finished third.

It was Button’s first victory at Spa and the 14th of the British driver’s career and probably one of the easiest after he began from the pole position and led from start to finish.
