Spanish Grand Prix Victory for Hamilton

Lewis Hamilton won the Spanish Grand Prix in a commanding Mercedes one-two on Sunday to stretch his Formula One lead over Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel, who finished fourth, to 17 points.
According to Reuters, the victory, in a race that stayed dry despite the threat of rain, was the Briton’s second of the season, 64th of his career and third at the Circuit de Catalunya in Spain.
It also set a record, one that Hamilton had previously shared with seven times champion Michael Schumacher, of 41 wins from pole position.
Finland’s Valtteri Bottas was second, a hefty 20.5 seconds behind, with Dutch 20-year-old Max Verstappen completing the podium for Red Bull — his first of an incident-filled season.
Hamilton’s win followed on from the lucky victory that fell into his lap in Azerbaijan two weekends ago, but Sunday had nothing to do with chance and all to do with the champions being back to their best.
He now has 95 points to Vettel’s 78 after five rounds of the 21-race championship.
Mercedes regained the lead in the constructors’ standings and are now 27 points clear of Ferrari who had 2007 world champion Kimi Raikkonen retire from the race.
Australian Daniel Ricciardo was fifth for Red Bull, ahead of Denmark’s Kevin Magnussen for Haas and Spaniards Carlos Sainz (Renault) and Fernando Alonso (eighth for McLaren).
Sainz’s points lifted Renault ahead of McLaren and into fourth place by a single point.
Mexican Sergio Perez was ninth for Force India and Monegasque rookie Charles Leclerc took the final point for Sauber.
