Lewis Hamilton WINS the Spanish Grand Prix in a Mercedes 1-2

Lewis Hamilton WINS the Spanish Grand Prix in a Mercedes 1-2

It calmed down the growing fears that Formula One was becoming a one-horse race as Mercedes spent the 2017 season continuing their dominance over the field.

Valtteri Bottas made it a Mercedes one-two ahead of Red Bull's Max Verstappen.

The win is Hamilton's second of the season and one he will believe is fully deserved. This opposed to Hamilton and Bottas running on the Super Soft tyre.

"I think it probably impacted more on us than the others". "The best ones are sensitive and fragile", he said. After a good showing in Baku, the Williams vehicle appears to have returned to its normal level.

"I'm pleased to be back in a good position with it".

"I got a decent lap", said Bottas, who was leading in Azerbaijan when a tire blew near the end of the race.

"I think we have the same ones for Paul Ricard and Silverstone so we need to have a look".

Manchester City assistant coach, Mikel Arteta, has emerged the leading candidate to replace Arsene Wenger as Arsenal manager . Kelechi Iheanacho, Jamie Vardy's penalty and Riyad Mahrez's late strike condemned the Gunners to a 3-1 defeat at Leicester .

When asked if the victory felt more satisfying than the one in Baku, he said: "Yes, it is the greatest feeling to come here and have that kind of performance and then win convincingly".

Hamilton echoed the optimism coming from Wolff.

"Today, the auto and myself, I felt that synergy which I hadn't been feeling for the whole year", Hamilton said.

"This is when we are going to start continuing to apply for the pressure, with a one-two for the team". "We're hoping that this year's Spanish Grand Prix will be a good race for us, but we know that it will be tough". I'm almost in the groove. "It was down to the canvas and for me it always felt like, when I was trying to save it, the next few corners I had no grip because I lost so much temperature".

Hamilton, who also holds the record of 74 pole positions, had started from the top slot for only the second time this year.

Results from the Spanish Grand Prix are below.

"For us it was a flawless result today", he added. The changes should make cars go a second and a half slower, however.

The red lights' exodus saw the red vehicle of Sebastian Vettel push past Mercedes' Valtteri Bottas into the first corner, staggering the Mercedes-Ferrari running order. He had a spin shortly after the Ocon-induced virtual safety auto.

Wolff sympathised with his rivals at the Scuderia.

"It's always a very hard call to make", Wolff said. "Ferrari did the opposite".

"I'm not trying to be amusing, but I genuinely have no idea what they are doing or what they've changed or what they've decided", Ricciardo said.

Most teams brought significant updates to Spain, which marks the beginning of the European season in F1. Sensitive nerves no longer jangling, Hamilton leaves Barcelona with the assured calm he has been looking for since reeling from that shell-shocked second in Melbourne.

Danish driver Kevin Magnussen qualified seventh for Haas, ahead of Spaniards Fernando Alonso and Carlos Sainz for McLaren and Renault respectively.

Force India driver Sergio Perez and Sauber's Charles Leclerc put in sterling performances to claim ninth and 10th positions respectively.
