Lewis Hamilton Might Lose 20 Grid Places in Belgium Race

Lewis Hamilton is in danger of losing his score-advantage over his teammate Nico Rosberg this Sunday’s Formula 1 Belgian Grand Prix. The reigning F1 world champion will likely suffer at least a 20-grid penalty in the race. According to BBC, Hamilton already exceeded the use of some of his allowable engine tokens for the season.
