I had the luxury of not watching the Belgian Grand Prix live because other commitments took priority - like a weekend on my narrowboat with my grandkids - so that meant I didn't see the race until Monday evening.
I say it was a luxury because, having followed the Autosport Live coverage online while cruising down the Grand Union Canal - which was great - I knew the result. But when it came to judging the incidents Max Verstappen was involved in, I was able to read what others thought without a preconceived opinion of my own.
In many ways, for all the incidents and accidents, the result of the grand prix was broadly what you would have expected. Mercedes again dominated, with Nico Rosberg leading from start to finish and Lewis Hamilton coming through to third from the back of the grid.
