Race by Race – 2016 F1 Fastest Lap and Fastest Pit Stop

ROUND 10: British Grand Prix

DHL Fastest Lap Award: 2016 British Grand Prix

Lewis Hamilton dominated the British Grand Prix weekend at Silverstone. In all the free practice sessions, in qualifying and – most importantly – in the race itself, the 31-year-old Mercedes driver led the field. In only one other classification did another driver prevail, as Nico Rosberg took the honors for the fastest race lap. The German contender thus picks up another DHL Fastest Lap Award, a competition in which he now leads his team-mate by a score of five to two. Daniel Ricciardo (Red Bull), Nico Hülkenberg (Force India) and Daniil Kvyat (Toro Rosso) are the other drivers with their names on the 2016 scoreboard, having claimed one Grand Prix fastest lap each.

DHL Fastest Pit Stop Award: 2016 British Grand Prix

Top dogs beaten! For the first time this year, the fastest pit stop in the 2016 FORMULA 1 BRITISH GRAND PRIX did not go to the Williams squad. Instead, Mercedes were out in front this time with Lewis Hamilton. His mechanics changed all four tires on his car in only 2.33 seconds – no one was faster that weekend. And so, the Mercedes crew took the crown for the fastest pit stop from Williams, who have been unbeaten so far in 2016. In the first nine races this season, their drivers, Felipe Massa and Valtteri Bottas, have been stationary for the shortest period nine times in all.
