Hamilton looks so relaxed on the podium. He's now 28 points ahead in the championship and it's hard to see where Rosberg is going to turn this one around.

Grosjean has that beaming smile we got used to in 2013 all over his face.

Lap 44

While all that is happening, Lewis Hamilton wins the Belgian Grand Prix to extend his championship advantage.

Grosjean claims a brilliant podium for Lotus! What a weekend for the Enstone team. Kvyat fourth, wonderful drive from Perez as he clings on to fifth position. Massa stays ahead of Raikkonen, who in turn stays ahead of Verstappen.

Dramatic ending.

"Top job Lewis, top job Lewis!" Peter Bonnington tells the world champion. Hamilton immediately into parc ferme as they pull immediately into the pit lane in Spa. He rubs the side of his Mercedes and pats the lid - must be quite a treat driving that car.

Grosjean runs over to Lotus with his arms waving in the air. What a moment for the Lotus team and a great drive from Grosjean.

Lap 43

The replay of that looks very scary. A couple of 100 metres earlier and that's a tyre blowout in the middle of Eau Rouge.

That has elevated Grosjean up to third. Perez still holding a big train of cars behind him - he's got one lap to cling on to fifth position.

Verstappen has a go at Raikkonen on the Kemmel Straight and he gets past but runs too deep at the chicane! Raikkonen regains the position and it looks like Verstappen got distracted by the Williams in front of him.

Lap 42

Grosjean running out of time to get Vettel. He's just not able to get close enough but he'll have two more stabs at it with DRS.

Here comes his first one and Vettel's right rear tyre has blown!!!! Late drama in Belgium and everything has fallen apart for Vettel and Ferrari. The gamble to not pit proves to be the wrong call.

Cars passing Vettel at either side as he tip-toes around the circuit - he's picked a bad place to get a puncture in the first sector, this is the longest track on the calendar.

Lap 41

Grosjean has DRS again, can he get a good run down to Les Combes this time? He's inching closer and closer and he has a look down the inside but is nowhere near close enough.

Further down the road Kvyat swings past Perez, leaving it oh-so-late to pull out from behind the Force India before moving around the Force India down the inside. A great late charge from Kvyat here.

Lap 40

Kvyat warned about track limits at Turn 4 but is told to keep pushing.

Grosjean five tenths down on Vettel now.

Replays show Verstappen passing Bottas for ninth but the real action is happening up the road. Vettel holding firm and doing everything to keep Grosjean at bay.

Late lunge from Kvyat on Massa at Les Combes and that's a superb pass for sixth! Perez the next man up the track. Can the Russian get past the Force India?
