Today was a fascinating Belgian Grand Prix with Sebastian Vettel taking the lead on four separate occasions, giving an idea of how things chopped and changed.

Here are a few other numbers from today's race to provide food for thought:

There were 8 lead changes in the first 18 laps.

Vettel today moved onto 259 points, which is more than he scored all of last season in clinching the 2010 World Championship

Vettel becomes only the second winner at Spa from pole position since 2002. The other was Raikkonen in 2007.

It was Vettel's 17th win, from his 24th pole, his 30th podium and 50th points finish - in just 74 starts.

It's the first win at Spa for a Renault engine since 1995 - when Michael Schumacher won in a Benetton-Renualt.

Webber and Vettel extend their streak of both finishing in the top five at every race this season. E

It was Red Bull's 10th one-two finish in F1, but only the second this year.

Button made up 10 places to secure his 3rd place finish. Prior to today he had done the most on track passes this season with 39, he added a few good ones today.

Button's 15 points today are his first at Spa for six years.

Schumacher becomes the sixth driver in a row to score points after being eliminated in Q1.

Rosberg again failed to finish in his grid position or better. He has only managed it once this season (Silverstone)

Maldonado was penalised yesterday, but today got his first championship point, only the second scored by a Venezuelan (Jonny Ceccotto was 6th at Long Beach in 1983)

Watch out for the full in depth analysis of how and why the key decisions were made in today's race in JA on F1's UBS Strategy Report, on Tuesday,
