Hamilton Cautiously Optimistic After Win in Spain

Lewis Hamilton: Barcelona F1 win a 'rejuvenating experience'

The Ferrari driver finished fourth to lose ground on title leader Hamilton.

"Why our auto doesn't like to be quick around the corners in Monaco we haven't found yet".

"The next race in Monaco could be hard for us", Bottas said.

He won at this track in 2017, though, and with Mercedes locking out on the front row, Hamilton can hope for some assistance in keeping Vettel at bay.

The Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya was a track where Mercedes was expected to run well, but the next race is in Monaco, where the team has struggled in recent years. "As much as we are overwhelmed by the victory in Barcelona, my mind is already in Monaco and I remember Sunday night wasn't as pleasant past year".

Then again, Red Bull can also never be discounted around the twisting streets of the Principality.

After three races in which driver and the team have struggled to unlock performance from tyres and auto, Mercedes finally had the platform required at the Circuit de Catalunya. There are arguments for both sides, of course, but in principle we would all like to see more overtaking. Despite all the talk of updates, as usual the ultimate performance seems to come down to who can get the tricky Pirelli tyres to work best for them. But Mercedes officials and drivers are saying one race doesn't make a season.

Giovinazzi will be joined in the Sauber C37 by Charles Leclerc, while Haas' Romain Grosjean will be the first out for the American team - they are yet to confirm their Wednesday driver.

"We're absolutely delighted with the way the weekend has gone here in Barcelona", beamed Shovlin.

Vettel gave away his position when Ferrari chose to go for an extra stop and give the German driver fresher tyres. A slow pit stop kept the Mercedes of Bottas behind the German.

"It was feeling good until the end, when I looked up at the tower and my name did not go to the top".

"People probably think it was an easy race and I was cruising but I wasn't cruising". That stint alone should make Ferrari and Vettel a bit anxious when looking at how they're going to get back in front in this World Championship battle. Why on earth he kept his foot hard on the throttle, spun back into the pack and created that smoke cloud I have no idea, but it was an extremely unsafe thing to do. The team's grid position helped them get a quick getaway from the start, pulling ahead of the Red Bulls and the Ferraris right from the launch.

The F1 bandwagon will roll into Monte Carlo for the Monaco Grand Prix on 27 May. In a way, while it was a shame for Nico Hulkenberg and Pierre Gasly, it was lucky that there weren't more cars wiped out in that or drivers injured.
