It was one-two for Mercedes
Benz drivers Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas at the Spanish Grand Prix as Hamilton
secured his second victory in a row. Red Bull racing driver Max Verstappen came
in third with his damaged car, edging out Sebastian Vettel of Ferrari who had
to be content with the fourth position.
It was pole-sitter Hamilton who
controlled the proceedings from the start, though the race in its initial
rounds saw three drivers crashing out. At Turn 3, Romain Grosjean of Haas spun his car knocking off in the bargain Renault’s
Nico Hulkenberg and Toro Rosso’s Pierre Gasly.
Hamilton managed to stay clear
of all mishaps as he finished 20s ahead of his teammate Bottas to lead the
first Mercedes one-two of the season. Vettel’s Red Bull mate Daniel Ricciardo came
home fifth, while Kevin Magnussen managed an impressive 6th for his
Local heroes Carlos Sainz of
Renault came in seventh, ahead of eighth-placed Fernando Alonso in the McLaren
securing vital points for their respective teams. Force India’s Sergio Perez
managed a 9th, while finished No. 10 was Sauber’s Charles Leclerc.
Hamilton’s victory means he
now leads Vettel by 17 points in the drivers’ standings, having leapfrogged his
rival after Azerbaijan, with Bottas 20 behind the Ferrari man in third. A
one-two was the perfect result for Mercedes, who dominated every session here
in Barcelona – and they are now ahead of Ferrari in the constructors’
