Vettel fights for the win but has to settle for the fastest lap

In the battle for the race victory, Sebastian Vettel and Lewis Hamilton traded fastest laps but it was to the Ferrari driver that the final honour went. Hamilton won the race, but Vettel can console himself with another fastest lap. Ricciardo wasn't far behind, whilst Sergio Pérez proved what pace he had before the accident with his Force India teammate Esteban Ocon.

Interestingly, Fernando Alonso managed to post a slower time than Max Verstappen, who only managed a handful of laps in his ailing Red Bull. Alonso also retired but not until much later in the race.
