For the second race in a row, Nico Rosberg pipped the race winner to the top spot in the list of fastest laps. Proving faster than teammate Lewis Hamilton, Rosberg didn't manage to pass him on track, but picked up his third fastest lap of the season so far. Daniel Ricciardo was third best, beating podium finisher Fernando Alonso by more than half a second.

Naturally, the two retirees were at the bottom of the order, with Grosjean and Sutil split by the Marussia of Jules Bianchi. Max Chilton, in the other Marussia car, was much faster, finishing 13th on the table of race fastest laps.
