There was a good battle for fastest lap of the race, as many drivers were putting their foot down for a variety of reasons. Vettel was obviously trying to get as far through the field as he could in an effort to keep his championship fight alive. Meanwhile, out front, Max Verstappen found himself unable to contain the pace as he set fastest lap after fastest lap whilst the pit wall panicked themselves about getting the car to the finish line.

The Haas team have struggled all weekend but managed to finish in the top ten for fastest laps. Sergio Pérez was superbly impressive in front of the home crowd, though, finishing with the fourth fastest lap time.
