Lewis Hamilton wins in Spain as Mercedes dominance continues

Spanish Grand Prix

Lewis Hamilton said he was inspired to victory in Sunday's Spanish Grand Prix by receiving a humbling message from a five-year-old boy who is fighting cancer.

The Briton now has 112 points to Bottas's 105, with Verstappen third on 66.

Hamilton's boyhood idol Ayrton Senna, the Brazilian triple champion who died 25 years ago, had expressed a desire to race for Ferrari but never felt they could offer a winning vehicle.

With Mercedes coming away with a fifth consecutive 1-2 finish the realisation must have set in at Maranello.

"I'm enjoying continuously growing with this team and it's incredible what we're achieving together, what we have achieved in these six or seven years". I plan to work with this team to make... "That is my sole goal and my sole objective".

However, he overtook the Finn during the second lap and led the race from thereon in, and in addition to his race win, he secures an extra point for the fastest lap.

However, the gap to Ferrari only widened in Spain, while Max Verstappen - third on Sunday - said his Red Bull was slower than the Mercedes cars in every corner.

Bottas, to his credit, did his level best to avoid a collision and fend off the surprise attack.

Verstappen took advantage of the joisting to slip by Vettel and into third, a result that moved the Belgian into a distant third place in the standings.

The demonstrators, however, have remained in the streets, demanding the military hand over to civilian rule. But the generals pointed to what they call "many reservations " over the alliance's roadmap.

Vettel was the other driver to separate the McLarens, with Sergio Perez - also carrying out Pirelli testing in a second Racing Point - finishing 11th behind Norris.

The bad: it was won at the start and Hamilton's victory never really looked in doubt after the first turn. "I feft some unusual behavior with the clutch".

Hamilton told reporters that after being outpaced to pole by Bottas at three consecutive events, he meant to analyse his one-lap performances. Bottas surged past Hamilton from the line before winning the season-opening Australia GP.

Mercedes boss Toto Wolff isn't anxious about a title rivalry souring the relationship of Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas in the way that it did between Hamilton and Nico Rosberg.With Hamilton.

"It wasn't a replay of Baku at least", Hamilton said stepping onto the winner's podium. Mercedes brought Hamilton in for soft tyres, allowing him to head back onto track in the lead.

"He's been a massive supporter of mine since I was 13", said Hamilton.

"I prefer it when they are in the mix with us", he said. The team has spoken of it, and Valtteri and I have spoken of it, and I think we have the best pairing that any team has, especially with the balance that we have in terms of how respectful we are.

Pierre Gasly was a solid sixth in the second Red Bull ahead of Kevin Magnussen of Haas, home hero Carlos Sainz of McLaren, Daniil Kvyat of Toro Rosso and Romain Grosjean in the second Haas. His team mate Lando Norris brought out the safety auto on lap 46 after colliding with Racing Point's Lance Stroll. Hulkenberg finished 13th, right behind Renault partner Daniel Ricciardo.
