Lewis Hamilton says he doesn't feel his results in this year's Formula 1 World Championship have reflected his 'actual pace' despite winning six races from 11 starts.

Following a dismal race day in the Hungarian Grand Prix before the summer break, Hamilton put those memories aside with a comprehensively dominant performance at the Belgian Grand Prix, swelling his advantage in the overall standings to 28 points.

However, despite this healthy advantage, Hamilton doesn't believe he has enjoyed the perfect season, suggesting his efforts in qualifying - having accumulated 10 pole positions - shows his six race wins aren't as good as they potentially should be.

"I don't particularly remember as good as year as this in qualifying. Belgium was an incredibly positive feeling to be able to perform the way I did," he said, referring to his qualifying performance.

"I don't think this year's races have reflected my actual pace, or performance between qualifying and my pole positions so I need to convert more poles to wins. That's my goal now."
