The two Mercedes drivers had very different afternoons at Spa-Francorchamps, but they both finished at the top of the fastest laps table, with Lewis Hamilton pipping Nico Rosberg to the top by a tenth of a second. Daniil Kvyat was surprisingly fast, considering his lowly grid position and under-performing Toro Rosso.

Meanwhile, three drivers didn't manage to set a fastest lap time thanks to their early exits from the race, whilst Esteban Ocon finished 16th fastest overall on his first F1 race.
