It's no surprise to see race winner Lewis Hamilton with the fastest lap in Barcelona, and Sebastian Vettel just a tenth of a second behind him. However, it's more eyebrow-raising to see Fernando Alonso fourth on the table, ahead even of Valtteri Bottas. Jolyon Palmer also had a moment of pace, despite finishing far down the order.

Williams were really poor on pace in Spain, with Massa and Stroll 13th and 16th on the fastest laps table respectively. Force India also didn't impress on the table, despite a solid top five finish for both drivers.
