Spa-Francorchamps, Belgium: Nico Rosberg led from pole position to the finish as he won the Belgian Grand Prix at Spa on Sunday to close the gap on title rival and Mercedes teammate Lewis Hamilton.

Defending world champion Hamilton produced a fantastic drive in an action-packed race, despite starting from the back row of the grid, to finish third, one place behind Red Bull's Daniel Ricciardo.
