Considering how slowly Lewis Hamilton was circling towards the end of the Abu Dhabi race, it's no surprise to see the two Mercedes drivers so far down on the fastest laps chart, with Lewis in fifth and eventual champion Nico in ninth. Topping the timesheets is Ferrari driver Sebastian Vettel, who was chasing for a podium finish and ended up in third place.

A couple of surprises on the table include Fernando Alonso who managed the second fastest time during the race, and Romain Grosjean who ended up fourth on the fastest laps table.
