    Formula 1's return from its summer break has been rained on

    Formula 1's return from its summer break has been rained on

    Max Verstappen has been awarded a half-points victory at the Belgium Grand Prix at Spa, in what has been the shortest race in F1 history.

    The race was delayed severely due to rain, before officials decided to defy the weather to have two laps under the safety car and then returned to the pits when it was clear the conditions weren't improving.

    It's Verstappen's sixth win of the season and cuts Lewis Hamilton's lead again.

    George Russell claimed his first career podium in second, with Hamilton third.
