  26. Markelov [Penalty, starts from pit lane.]

Richelmi and Izawa are both definitely on slicks. The sky is black. I despair sometimes.

Formation lap underway and Lancaster has stalled on the grid, he'll now start from the pit lane behind Markelov.

The race starts at the same moment that the rain starts to fall. Palmer had a terrible start he's down to 8th and is now battling his championship rival Nasr.

Yellows are out on the first lap. Daly has gone into the wall at Paul Frere.

At the end of lap 1 Vandoorne still leads.

Safety car is now out.

De Jong pits for wets as do Richelmi and Izawa.

23 laps to go and the red flag has been given.

Top 3 is Vandoorne, Cecotto, Marciello. Evans had been in 2nd but spun under the safety car.

Race will resume at 16:10 [CET]. However the rain has taken this as a cue to start again. I have a feeling that Spa is determined that this race is going to be wet.

The race will restart under the SC.

21 laps remain as the race has been restarted. Our leader is the silver Mercedes- oh no! That's the SC.

Pit entry is closed for safety reasons.

SC in this lap. We'll be racing again soon.

Pit entry open.

Vandoorne weaves and waits and guns it as he hits the safety car line, however Cecotto was waiting and takes advantage as Vandoorne goes too deep into turn 1.

However Cecotto then runs too deep but manages to get back on track and retain the lead.

Cecotto told to let Vandoorne through which he does.

Nasr goes up the inside of Berthon putting another position between him and Palmer.

Cecotto runs wide at Blanchimont but manages to hold on to second. Obviously the team telling him to surrender the lead has made him lose some momentum.

Abt is pitting and getting more wets.

Marciello finally gets past Cecotto. He went around the outside as they came up to Les Combes.

Coletti pits.

Contact between Bethon and Trummer. Trummer's front wing is damaged. Surely he needs to pit now.

Berthon and Negrao and Dillmann are all past Trummer who is refusing to give up positions gracefully.

Trummer pits for a new wing.

Trummer and Berthon incident is under investigation – causing a collision.

Coletti is out. He had fresh wets however he made the risky decision to pass Canamasas. It ended badly as he didn't give room and Coletti loses it as he brakes on the kerb.

Drive through for Berthon – the stewards deemed he didn't give Trummer room.

Izawa pits for more wets.

Marciello is closing down the gap to Vandoorne.

Palmer is told to box. He puts on more wets.

Incident between Markelov and Dillmann will be investigated after the race – causing a collision.

After much battling Markelov manages to get past Canamasas. I would have written more about it but any move involving Canamasas has me whimpering.

Canamasas and Abt have a small battle up Eau Rouge. Abt keeps ahead.

Vandoorne pits with 8 laps to go.

Cecotto has a very slow exit from the pit, 4th place Nasr must have been thinking that Christmas has come early.

Canamasas tries to force Haryanto off and ends up turning himself around. Karma is a beautiful thing.

Marciello pits and comes out behind Vandoorne. It was close though.

Evans goes up the inside of Palmer. He's had a terrible race.

Marciello is told he's good to push until the end of the race.

Vandoorne makes a mistake at the chicane and Marciello is right under his rear wing.

Three laps left to go and the young Italian is desperate to get his first win.

Marciello takes the lead off Vandoorne!

Yellows out for a stranded Haryanto. He was at the chicane though what happened I don't know.

Abt is told that he's fighting for reverse pole.

Abt goes up the inside of Negrao for 8th.

Marciello wins, Vandoorne 2nd, Cecotto 3rd.

Izawa and Trummer are starting on the softer tyres.

Bad start for Markelov.

Nasr takes the lead. Abt down to 2nd and Palmer is 3rd.

Palmer and Evans run wide. Abt has a wiggle and loses a few places.

Cecotto is all over the back of Palmer. He makes the move on the Kemmel Straight after getting a better run up Eau Rouge.

Markelov seems to be struggling, he's making mistake after mistake.

Marciello is down in 24th. He spun on the first lap.

Turn 5 incident between Markelov and Palmer under investgation – causing a collision.

Lancaster is out of the race he appears to have stopped on track.

Markelov also out, he made it to the pits though. The team were looking at the right side of his car.

No further action in the incident between Markelov and Marciello. (No idea what on earth is going on. Typical race control I'm afraid.)

Cecotto is slowly catching up to Nasr.

Evans gets past Negrao, a move he's been eyeing up for a few laps.

Vandoorne is next through on the Kemmel Straight. Although the Belgian lifted slightly going up Eau Rouge.

Quaife-Hobbs' front wing is looking a little odd, he suffers a massive lock up then pits. The damage occurred when he went straight on at Eau Rouge.

Cecotto is owning sector 1, Nasr has to really pull it out of the bag in sectors 2 and 3 just to hold him back.

Coletti goes around the outside of Negrao.

Yellows are out. Canamasas has stopped at the top of Eau Rouge. Marshals are rescuing his Trident.

Marciello makes a beautiful move on Trummer and Berthon follows him through.

Nasr seems to have gotten the measure of Cecotto now. I think the Brazillian has this now.

Evans, Abt and Palmer are all quite close together. The battle isn't over for 3rd.

Evans is up to 4th, can he get 3rd with ¾ of a lap to go.

Abt seems to have a problem.

Nasr wins, Cecotto 2nd and Palmer just about takes 3rd.
