Lewis Hamilton wins the 2018 Spanish GP

Formula One F1- Spanish Grand Prix

Sebastian Vettel has diluted the conspiracy theory about why Pirelli's tyres suddenly changed ahead of the Spanish grand prix. "We've had all the bosses here and there is not a single person in the team, or at least the hierarchy of the team, that has any concerns as far as I am aware".

"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.

Wolff is confident that both the driver and the team are committed to each other and is certain they can get it sorted out sooner rather than later, especially since they got back to winning ways at the Circuit de Catalunya. When the race resumed, Hamilton seemingly got into a groove setting the fastest lap on the seventh lap and began widening the gap between him and Vettel.

Mercedes also completed a trial for F1's governing body by placing two lights on their car's rear-wing endplates.

"I think it's pretty straightforward", said Vettel. "Race by race we're understanding the tyres more, which is a bit battle for everyone". Wolff indicated earlier that they will look for options within the Mercedes family rather than look at someone like Daniel Ricciardo, who is out of contract with Red Bull. After that I was really surprised they didn't have the pace to keep up with me.

Dhavalikar pointed out to the Karnataka assembly results, where the regional outfit JD (S) played a significant role. Another alliance partner, MGP, said that the regional parties will remain an important factor in Goan politics.

Vettel gave away his position when Ferrari made a decision to go for an extra stop and give the German driver fresher tyres. One, we were not quick enough and if we are not able to see then we are more than blind.

The team attempted to jump the Ferrari during the first round of pit stops, but that didn't work either.

The Finn, Mercedes teammate to four-time World Champion Lewis Hamilton, would have been a victor in Azerbaijan last month but for suffering a puncture three laps from the end while leading.

Red Bull once again had a weekend where they couldn't get the qualifying performance they needed, but the race pace was again very good.

"I'm looking forward to Monaco; hopefully we can take some of the things we've learned onto there". Kubica took on a Williams test role at the start of 2018 after missing out on a race drive, and prior to Wednesday's test had taken part in pre-season testing and first practice at the Spanish Grand Prix. 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 Ferrari driver qualified and raced coolly ahead of the Red Bulls till he slowed mysteriously down and allowed those everrestless teammates to pass. Lewis and Seb have been brilliant there in the past.
