Maiden win for Leclerc at emotional Belgian GP

Ferrari's Charles Leclerc picked up his maiden win at an emotional Belgian Grand Prix, coming one day after a driver was killed in an F2 race. The grid wore "Racing for Anthoine" logos in tribute to Anthoine Hubert, who was killed after a collision with Ecuadorian-American driver Juan Manuel Correa after he had already gone off into the barriers at the Spa-Francorchamps track's fast Raidillon corner on Saturday. And Hubert's contemporary, 21-year-old Leclerc, held off a late challenge from Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton to seal victory. Valtteri Bottas took the third podium spot, with Leclerc's senior team-mate Sebastian Vettel in fourth. Hamilton still holds a 65-point lead over Bottas in the drivers' championship.
