Lewis Hamilton won today’s Spanish Grand Prix after sprinting away from his teammate Valtteri Bottas after overtaking him at turn one.
The World Champion controlled the race throughout, his teammate staying with him but was unable to find an answer to Hamiltons pace.
Sebastian Vettel locked up going in to the first corner and flat spotted a rear tyre which rather hampered his race. LeClerc, who started in fifth caught Vettel quickly, and the German driver let him through on lap 12.
A late safety car was brought out after Lando Norris and Lance Stroll had a coming together on lap 46, Hamilton dived into the pits for a free stop, his team putting the soft tyres on, as did LeClerc. The safety car came back in on lap 52, and Hamilton controlled the restart effortlessly, cruising to an easy victory ahead of Bottas. Verstappen finished third ahead of the Ferrari duo, who once again seemed to be compromised by bad strategy.
Gasly finished sixth, ahead of the Haas driver Magnussen, the lone Mclaren finisher Carlos Sainz eighth in his home race ahead of Kvyat who did some amazing overtaking, finished ninth, with Grosjean finished last of the points scorers in tenth.
The Formula One circus moves on to Monaco next, will the silver arrows be able to keep up their wining streak around the twisting streets of Monte Carlo?
