Many of the drivers set fastest laps as the race unfolded, and Hamilton, Bottas and Vettel were trading top times as they fought for the best possible result. In the end, it was Lewis Hamilton who secured the fastest lap of the race, but Verstappen and Bottas were less than three tenths of a second behind him.

Romain Grosjean had a surprising amount of pace, and Nico Hülkenberg was inside the top ten. At the wrong end of the field, Daniil Kvyat was struggling, and Felipe Massa in the Williams was also low down the order.
