F1-EL3: Lewis Hamilton dominates Nico Rosberg

After the domination of Nico Rosberg during Friday in Spa in Belgium, Lewis Hamilton set the record straight this Saturday morning on the Toboggan des Ardennes. The Briton set the best time in the final free practice session before qualifying, setting a benchmark lap in 1'48 "984 in soft gums.

Rosberg finished second but almost half a second behind his teammate at Mercedes. Behind the two Silver Arrows, Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Räikkönen hoist their Ferrari SF15-T in third and fourth position respectively 645 and 880 thousandths behind Lewis Hamilton.

Sergio Pérez places the first Force India in fifth position, with Vijay Mallya's team flanking both Red Bull de Daniel Ricciardo and Daniil Kvyat since Nico Hulkenberg takes eighth position ahead of both Williams de Valtteri Bottas and Felipe Massa who complete the top 10.

Romain Grosjean (Lotus), hampered in his last attempt by Räikkönen, only took sixteenth place. Fernando Alonso did not set a time, and only completed a single installation lap at the wheel of his McLaren-Honda MP4-30.

Qualifying must begin at 14 p.m., and will be followed live on our website.
