Forget about Kimi Räikkönen winning the Belgian Grand Prix, I think the performance of Giancarlo Fisichella and Force India throughout the weekend has been nothing short of fantastic. Not only did they qualify 1st, but managed to lead the race, and keep up with the Ferrari when they were overtaken. I would never have thought of them being this competitive and came very close to winning the race on just pure pace. It has been a long time coming for them to score a championship point in F1, but certainly this is a very surprising result for the whole team....

So again, congratulations to Force India and a well deserved 2nd place. Hope this is a sign for things to come for the team, and with this confidence boost certainly they will become a race winning team in the near future. But enough talking about Force India, and move on onto the championship standings. With Jenson Button retired on the 1st lap, team mate Rubens Barrichello and both the drivers of Red Bull Racing, Sebastian Vettel & Mark Webber, are catching up Button in the drivers championship. Only with 20.5 points separating the top 4 with only 5 more races in the calendar the drivers championship can not be any closer. Just who will come out on top it can be anybodies guess.

The next race will be at Monza for the Italian Grand Prix in 2 weeks time, and for sure there could be several rumors in between regarding Luca Badoer being replaced as well as the confirmation that Fernando Alonso could be moving to Ferrari (or maybe, even earlier that expected?) and replace either of the Ferrari drivers, it will be interesting what will become of this during the next 2 weeks.
