Ferrari have appeared to be on the back foot over the last few race weekends, but they found some pace in Austin and managed to post the fastest two laps with Sebastian Vettel a full two seconds faster than the rest of the field. Mercedes managed the third and fourth fastest lap times with Nico Rosberg about half a second up on Lewis Hamilton.

Further back, Esteban Ocon was surprisingly fast in the Manor, finishing 11th on the fastest laps table, whilst teammate Pascal Wehrlein was last on the list. And, of course, Nico Hülkenberg didn't get a chance to complete a single lap let alone post a fast time.
