Although Verstappen won the race, the Red Bull driver was only fourth on the fastest laps table, with Sebastian Vettel taking the top spot following his run from the rear of the field to fourth place. Nico Hülkenberg managed a surprisingly quick second place when it comes to fastest laps, although that didn't quite translate to positions on the finishing table.

Valtteri Bottas had a very lonely race, finishing fifth without major trouble, and he was sixth on the fastest laps table, the first of the drivers with a lap time in the 1:35s. Behind him, Pérez and Grosjean significantly outperformed their teammates.
