F1 gossip: Hamilton, Vettel, Sirotkin, Alonso, Grosjean

Lewis Hamilton

"This is more like it", said Hamilton on the slowing down lap after crossing the line a mammoth 20 seconds ahead of teammate Valtteri Bottas and almost half a minute ahead of fourth-placed Ferrari-rival Vettel.

Vettel will kick off proceedings in the Ferrari SF71H just two days after finishing fourth in Spain. I know it sounds weird but today is the closest I think I've been but there are still areas that weren't quite flawless. We would then have a true qualifying tyre, which forces a short first stint in the race and, therefore, a two-stop strategy.

By contrast, the track at Barcelona is much better suited to the W09 - as today's dominant performance from Lewis Hamilton demonstrated.

"It was an interesting day from the driver's point of view, but I think it was even more interesting day from the aero point of view and for the guys at the factory to now have a look and see what we can get out of it". They changed but they changed for everyone.

After the inherited and rather flat victory in Baku, this weekend's trip to Barcelona proved that Mercedes and Hamilton are back to their best.

"I think it's pretty straightforward", Vettel said.

The field experienced six total retirements with Romain Grosjean, Nico Hulkenberg, and Pierre Gasly being involved in a first lap crash, and Stoffel Vandoorne, Esteban Ocon, and Kimi Räikkönen experiencing mechanical issues that brought an early conclusion to their race. I don't know what happened. There are arguments for both sides, of course, but in principle we would all like to see more overtaking.

But Vettel struggled with tire wear and Ferrari chose to bring him in for an extra stop.

"It feels like a long time since we had a 1-2 finish, so there's definitely a measure of relief in how we asserted ourselves today", said Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff. The season so far has been positive for us. His day at the wheel of the FW41 ended with 123 laps on the board as the team looked to better understand the issues it has faced with its auto since the start of the year. He said: "If you're happy with your wife, you don't look at other women".

"We know that it is going to be a hard weekend, but as we have seen this year, you can still take great points from races you do not win". We didn't have winning pace today, that's why we didn't win.

"We are not far from finalising things". "Race by race we're understanding the tyres more, which is a bit battle for everyone".

It was the British driver's second day at the wheel of a MCL33 after completing a tyre test for Pirelli in a version of the auto that was not running McLaren's latest upgrade on Tuesday. But what does it help?
