Hamilton wins in Spain with Vettel second, Bottas and Raikkonen drop out

20 Mai, 2017, 00:42 | Author: Marie-Claire Cellier

Hamilton was left for dead at the start as Vettel shot by him into the lead and he looked out of it when he trailed by a almost eight seconds before the Mercedes think tank got to work.

Lewis Hamilton has said his titanic victory over Sebastian Vettel at the Spanish Grand Prix felt like the first of his motor racing career.

Though Vettel and Hamilton both spoke of their enjoyment of the closely-fought battle at the Circuit de Catalunya, the German says his and Ferrari's main goal is to ensure they don't become a regular occurance.

Matters were made worse by the fact Hamilton has chosen to drop his drinks bottle to save some weight, meaning he's unable to replace any of the roughly 2kg of fluid a driver loses throughout a race. I think we are very different but I don't think that matters. "We are giving them, so far, a good run for their money".

Hamilton will now head to the Monaco Grand Prix a week on Sunday six points behind Vettel with both drivers level on two victories each in a season which is shaping up to be an all-time classic.

"Sometimes you have a bit of luck, like last year, sometimes you don't as we can see this year", Verstappen said. Though Vettel got by eventually with a sensational overtaking move, Hamilton had already made up a significant amount of time.

A notable finish outside the points-scoring positions was Fernando Alonso whose McLaren-Honda allowed him to finish a race for the 1st time this year in 12th place.

Chief: Boy called police to say father had drugs in luggage
Authorities in MA are praising an 11-year-old boy who called police to report that his father had drugs in his luggage. Yamil Mercado, 40, turned himself in Thursday to Lawrence Police. "It's a horrendous position to be in".


The Dutchman was on the outside when Kimi Raikkonen and Valtteri Bottas collided heading into Turn 1, with the Ferrari driver bouncing off the Mercedes and into Verstappen's Red Bull auto, eliminating both with suspension damage. This crash resulted in suspension damage on the Ferrari and the Red Bull, thus eliminating Raikkonen and Verstappen from the race. "This is why I race and this is what got me into racing in the beginning".

"I love tennis, I love watching (Roger) Federer and (Novak) Djokovic in a final, and what I really admire is the consistency", Hamilton said afterwards.

It was probably the slowest auto on the track, but Wehrlein stopped for just one tyre change, rather than the two or three-change strategy of the other teams, and his bright blue vehicle crossed the line in seventh place. Bottas was later forced to stop his Mercedes when it started spouting smoke midway through the race. "He drove a good race and we did everything we could".

Vettel said: "We're still here so..."

He then had to pressure Vettel hard for the next seven laps before getting close enough to try for a pass at the start of lap 44, sweeping past Vettel around the outside into Turn One.

Sauber registered in the top 10 for the first time this season - Pascal Wehrlein scoring four points with an eighth-place finish after receiving a five-second penalty for crossing the line on pit entry.
