The pace disadvantage of the Mercedes meant Hamilton was never a threat in qualifying, although he didn't help himself by crashing during FP3 after the rear stepped out when he turned in on the entry kerb at Fagnes. But never let up the pressure on the Ferraris in the race and came so close to a late win.
VERDICT: Another excellent drive that almost netted victory despite a straightline speed disadvantage, but the FP3 crash counts against him.
