Thanks for joining us for the Belgian Grand Prix. A great victory for Button which proves his return to form. He's now 63 points off Alonso in the drivers' championship so the dream is just about still alive.

Lap 44

Button wins in Belgium with a series of burn outs down the pit straight to celebrate. Vettel takes second ahead of Raikkonen and Hulkenberg. Massa takes fifth and Webber sixth.

Schumacher holds on to seventh ahead of Vergne, Ricciardo and di Resta.

Button celebrates with his team and gets a kiss from girlfriend Jessica Michibata.

Button starts his final lap. Vettel does the same, 14.5s behind. Raikkonen has a three second gap over Hulkenberg.

Lap 43

Button starts his penultimate lap. He's 14.4s clear of Vettel, who is 12.4s clear of Vettel.

Raikkonen is told to push harder because Hulkenberg is 3.1s behind. He replies saying "give me full power" which suggests he has been running on a slower fuel mixture.

Schumacher looks fine, 7.6s clear of Vergne.

Lap 42

If Schumacher does have a problem it isn't slowing him down too much. He's now 8.6s ahead of Vergne. Having said that his last lap time was slower than the cars around him.

Lap 41

So the top three look set for the rest of the race with roughly 14s separating each of the cars. Hulkenberg is now just 3.6s off Raikkonen and 2.5s ahead of Massa. Webber is still a second off the back of Massa.

Lap 40

Button's gap is now 13.1s over Vettel.

There are now reports that Schumacher has lost sixth gear. He's currently seventh and 7.7s ahead of Vergne. But his lap times aren't terrible by comparison.
