Australian Daniel Ricciardo won the Belgian Grand Prix for Red Bull Sunday while Mercedes title rivals Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton provided the drama of the day by colliding on the second lap. Hamilton failed to finish after fighting with a damaged car but Rosberg, blamed by his bosses and booed by the crowd on the podium, finished second to extend his championship lead to 29 points with seven of the 19 races remaining.The victory, on a surprisingly dry afternoon at a circuit famed for rapid changes in weather conditions, was Ricciardo's second in succession and third of his first season with the reigning champions.It was also his team's second in succession in Belgium after four-times world champion Sebastian Vettel triumphed last year and set off a run of nine wins in a row.Hamilton had passed pole sitter Rosberg at the start but his race was effectively over moments later when Rosberg tried to retake the lead in a misjudged move that could cost prove extremely costly for Hamilton.Rosberg has 220 points to Hamilton's 191 with Ricciardo moving closer on 156 .
