Lewis Hamilton dominates for Spanish GP victory

Spanish Grand Prix driver ratings

Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton easily won the Spanish Grand Prix on Sunday for his second straight Formula One victory, increasing his championship lead over Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel, The Guardian reported.

"I was told by the team to stop the vehicle", Raikkonen said".

"Our tires didn't last as long as for the others, so we couldn't follow the same strategy", Vettel said. "It worked out for Ricciardo and Verstappen in Shanghai and this is probably what they were thinking and I fully understand why they did it".

Hamilton made his intentions clear early, sprinting away from the field behind him in the first stint to ensure he was never strategically threatened for the rest of the race. "I hope we can continue".

"We got through all our running and were quite fast compared to previous years", Hamilton said. Live the race in Barcelona will show the channel "First Car". And though the Mercedes men locked out the front row, the biggest surprise (shock?) came when Ferrari sent its drivers out on the Soft tyre for their final runs in qualifying. Toward the end of a year ago, he broke out with a few wins and finished in the top 5 in six straight races. Meanwhile, both Red Bull drivers had yet to pit, and Verstappen lorded track position over Hamilton until called to pit on lap 34, his teammate Daniel Ricciardo attended to the lap prior.

Vettel was called in for a second stop under the virtual safety vehicle as Ferrari looked to make gains with the rest of the field speed-restricted. Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel could manage only fourth after his team took a second pitstop for the German behind the virtual safety auto that lost him track position. The Red Bull Racing prodigy was able to keep ahead of Vettel to climb onto the last step of the podium. Kimi Raikkonen (Ferrari) - +0,4395.
