Fastest laps - Belgian Grand Prix 2015 - Rosberg's recovery gives him fastest lap

Nico Rosberg had some work to do to recover from a poor start to the Grand Prix, and that allowed him scope to post the fastest lap of the race, beating teammate and eventual winner Hamilton by one tenth of a second.

Interestingly, it was the Red Bull of Danil Kvyat next in line and he was closely chased for the third fastest time by Max Verstappen, the young Toro Rosso driver who will be hoping to earn promotion to the big team at some point soon. Fernando Alonso also managed to find some surprising speed, finishing fifth on the fastest laps table.
