Sebastian Vettel took the lead from Lewis Hamilton on the opening lap of the 2013 Formula 1 Shell Belgian Grand Prix at Spa-Francorchamps on Sunday, and set the tone for a dominant race in which the reigning world champion was never troubled. Hamilton was unable to hold off the fast-starting Fernando Alonso who bullied his Ferrari through the field from ninth on the grid to second place. Hamilton held on for third, ahead of Mercedes team mate Nico Rosberg, who made a welcome return to the points.
