Hamilton’s sixth win of the season – the 39th of his career and his second victory at Spa – moved him on to 80 podium finishes, and lifted him to joint fourth in the all-time rankings. Only Michael Schumacher (155), Alain Prost (106) and Fernando Alonso (97) have stood on an F1 rostrum more times than the Briton.

Nico Rosberg crossed the line two seconds back from Hamilton to complete Mercedes’ seventh one-two of the season, and ensure the Briton only extended his championship lead by seven points. Rosberg now has 36 Grand Prix podiums to his name, drawing him level with two-time world champion Graham Hill for joint 22nd on the all-time list. The German also collected his third fastest lap of the season, meaning he now has just one fewer than Hamilton in 2015.

Behind the Silver Arrows there were tears of joy as Romain Grosjean collected his – and Lotus’s – first podium finish since the 2013 United States Grand Prix. The Frenchman, who hadn’t had so much as a top six finish since that race in Austin, has now scored ten career rostrum finishes – the eighth most of any current driver.
