Lewis Hamilton expects Saturday's third practice session to be hectic as drivers try to make up for time lost in Friday's two rain-soaked runs.

Hard rain limited most drivers to short bursts on the treacherous Spa circuit. Others, like Red Bull's Mark Webber, chose not to come out as conditions worsened for Friday's second practice.

"P3 (Practice 3) is going to be a lot busier than normal. As long as it's not like P2 then everyone is going to be out straight away to get some mileage in," said Hamilton, who is fourth overall as he chases his second title. "It's going to be very interesting trying to find the correct setup in the short space of time we'll have tomorrow."

Hamilton is optimistic for kinder weather, with qualifying set for Saturday afternoon.

"Hopefully it's blowing over and we can get down to business," he said.
