Pérez scoops fastest lap after late pit stop for tyres

Sergio Pérez made the best of a bad situation after a late collision with Daniil Kvyat forced him into the pit lane for a fresh set of tyres. After a difficult race, he then put the pedal to the floor and snatched the fastest lap of the race, almost half a second up on everyone else. Previous times had been somewhat tentative, after the safety car came out and left most of the field scrabbling for grip.

The Mercedes pair appeared to be low on pace, whilst Lance Stroll did a great job to secure the sixth fastest lap of the race, despite retiring before the chequered flag.
