Vettel and Hamilton dominated the race in Baku for all the wrong reasons, but they provided another element of action towards the end of the Grand Prix. Both drivers were looking to minimise the damage from their respective late pit stops, and were trading fastest laps as the race ran its course. In the end it was Vettel who succeeded to the fastest lap, pipping Hamilton by just two hundredths of a second.

Lance Stroll showed his pace with the fifth fastest time, and even Fernando Alonso, in that treacherous McLaren, managed to post the sixth fastest lap time of the race.
