Hamilton Dominates Wet Race 1

Hamilton started the race from pole position and finished nearly two seconds ahead of ASM teammate Adrian Sutil.

Signature's James Rossiter secured the final podium position after recovering from a poor start. Front-row Rossiter lost out to Sutil and Fabio Carbone after trying to squeeze Sutil wide at La Source. Rossiter then battled with Carbone for four laps before the Brit finally managed to get past into third.

Guillaume Moreau finished an impressive fourth after the rookie also managed to get passed Carbone before the chequered flag.

Loic Duval emerged unhurt after an accident at Eau Rouge on the final lap, although his car was badly damaged.
