Jenson Button celebrated what he labelled as an amazing weekend after clinching a superb victory in his 200th Formula 1 start.
The Briton handled the tricky conditions perfectly to grab his second win of the season, finishing ahead of world champion Sebastian Vettel and Ferrari's Fernando Alonso.
Button hailed his McLaren team for making the right calls during a difficult-to-read race, and the Briton admitted he is delighted to go into the summer break on a high.
"For some reason I like these conditions, don't ask me my why, but it worked out again," said Button. "A great call from the team to put me on the prime tyre when they did, a great call from all of us. All round it has been an amazing weekend.
"I want to say a big thank you to the team. Everyone has worked so hard to produce the car we have now. I think we are going into the break on a nice high. Every day we are on holiday we'll be thinking about Spa."
Button, who made three stops during the grand prix, admitted he felt he had the race under control most of the time, and said he had enjoying fighting with team-mate Lewis Hamilton.
"It's very easy to say now, but personally I felt that I was able to look after the tyres for the remainder of the first stint," he added. "I think about halfway through people started struggling but I was able to push on and the car felt really good.
"I knew I was in good shape, the car was working well for me. I thought it was a matter of time in the dry conditions to get the jump on Lewis because at the end of the stints he was struggling.
"It turned out a little bit different with the rain coming down, but I had a lot of fun all the same. It's always fun racing with Lewis. It's great to come away with a victory this weekend."
The McLaren driver is now 100 points behind championship leader Vettel.
