Britain's Lewis Hamilton wins Spanish Grand Prix

The team did an exceptional job. We just need to continue like that - and for me also.

He continued, "I was much happier with the vehicle".

"I couldn't have done it without this incredible team. I think it has come together this weekend".

"Barcelona holds mixed memories for us-a double DNF in 2016, but also a dramatic win for Lewis a year ago after passing [Sebastian] Vettel on track for the lead", Mercedes CEO Toto Wolff said.

Ferrari - Lack of performance of flawed strategy?

Hamilton is now standing at the top spot in the drivers' championship, maintaining a lead of just four points over Vettel.

The poor results by Vettel and Raikkonen dropped Ferrari behind Mercedes at the top of the constructors' championship. It has been a constant learning process with the tyres, getting them working in a very narrow window. "I had no idea how the race was going to play out".

"Our understanding of the vehicle and the improvements that we're making are important too". It looks different and it looks wrong, but from the inside I think it was the right thing to do.

"We were going through the tyres quicker than the others today".

The Ferrari driver made a brilliant getaway, picking up a tow off Valtteri Bottas before catapulting past into Turn 1 to run second behind race leader Lewis Hamilton.

Lewis Hamilton eventually won the Grand Prix by a margin of over 20 seconds, highlighting the gulf between the two drivers this weekend.

"They have been changed a bit, the tyres, for whatever reason". He needed to perform at his best, pushed to the line by Bottas who finished just four-hundredths of a second back.

Even if one were to assume that two-stopping was Ferrari's strategy for Vettel's race, it wouldn't be too hard to think that they were more foolhardy than fearless.

Operation Zarb-e-Azb was a joint military offensive conducted by the Pakistan armed forces against various militant group in 2014. Call them non-state actors, should we allow them to cross the border and kill 150 people in Mumbai? Explain it to me.

Both Ferrari men delivered sloppy first runs en route to pole position, but because of that, they should have been back on track, on the Super Softs, when their final runs commenced. It seems that Raikkonen is yet again on the receiving end of Ferrari's bad luck.

Ferrari have had the best auto so far this year, but Spain marked a turning point with Mercedes dominating throughout the weekend.

That error meant the German emerged back on track behind Verstappen's Red Bull.

A chaotic race start saw three drivers taken out in the first lap when Haas' Romain Grosjean took himself, Toro Rosso's Pierre Gasly and Renault's Nico Hulkenberg out of the race before it even started.

Verstappen then hit back of Sirotkin, but despite sustaining damage to his front wing, held off Vettel with relative ease.

Verstappen was pleased to take third place despite a messy minor crash with a Williams auto behind the virtual safety vehicle on lap 4.

"Anybody who has a win wants to do it that way", he added of the team's first one-two of the season. "To think that it's my 64th but it still feels like the first, still feels special, still feels unique in its own and the journey to it is why it feels unique".

"We go to Monaco on a high note, but we know we have a long mountain to climb and a lot of work to do". Max Verstappen (Red Bull) - +0,6436.

The Red Bull Racing driver rear-ended Lance Stroll at the reduced virtual safety auto speeds, damaging his front wing, but the aerodynamic disadvantage didn't seem to hamper his podium defence.

It was a lonely race for Kevin Magnussen, finishing in sixth place.

It is Hamilton's second pole of the season, having taken the top spot at the opener in Australia.

Grosjean's spin and crash were being investigated by the race stewards after the race.
