Lewis Hamilton Wins Spanish Grand Prix

Lewis Hamilton Wins Spanish Grand Prix

Lewis Hamilton, the Mercedes driver provided a magnificent performance that saw him outclass and overpower Red Bull's Max Verstappen.

Good enough, Max had to settle second while Hamilton's teammate came third after failing to catch Verstappen. 

This win saw him exetend his world Championship lead; going 37 points clear over Max who is only six past Botas. 

With such determination, Hamilton's 88th career victory sees him just three less to be at par with a record held by Michael Schumacher. 

Lewis Hamilton: I was in a daze out there...It felt really good. It was a fantastic effort from the team. It was a surprise because we had that problem with the tyres last weekend, but we seem to have understood it.

Max Verstappen: It was good to split the two Mercedes. I didn't have the pace like Lewis but I'm happy with second. The start was crucial to get ahead of Valtteri, then I was just trying to go at my own pace.

Valtteri Bottas: The start was the key point, I lost a position and then had to push hard to make ground and suffered the tyre condition. In stint two I was behind Max and everyone knows how hard that it. Off the start, Lewis got away and I did not have a tow like those behind.

With 156 appearances, Hamilton apparently holds a record for the most podiums in Formula 1 history. This is surely a good week off after six races in seven weeks. Looking forwad to seeing what the Belgian Grand Prix at classic Spa-Francorchamps has in store.
