“Today we we’re lucky; in previous years you’d have a headwind into Turn 5 and so you’re more draggy, the car behind gets a better tow. This weekend there was a tailwind and that really helped to keep the car behind.” Hamilton said.

After the Belgian Grand Prix, Hamilton leads the overall standings, 47 points ahead of Verstappen. Valtteri Bottas is the third.
