F1: Lewis Hamilton wins Spanish Grand Prix

1 Comment

Lewis Hamilton was victorious once again Sunday afternoon, leading all 66 laps of the Spanish Grand Prix en route to his 76th career victory.

Starting the race in second place, Hamilton took the lead from teammate and polesitter Valtteri Bottas in turn one after a three-way duel that saw both Mercedes drivers and Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel battle for the lead. Hamilton would not cede the lead for the remainder of the race.

“I have to put it down to this incredible team. This is history in the making, with five 1-2 finishes in a row. I’m so happy for every one of them,” Hamilton told fans following his victory.

With his third victory of the season, Hamilton moves to the top of the points standings – now leading Bottas by seven points.

Bottas finished second, followed by Red Bull’s Max Verstappen in third.

Ferrari once again struggled this weekend, with both drivers missing a podium finish. Sebastian Vettel and Charles Leclerc finished fourth and fifth, respectively.

Local favorite Carlos Sainz finished eighth for McLaren in his home race.

The Grand Prix saw two retirements, with Lance Stroll (Racing Point) and Lando Norris (McLaren) finishing 19th and 20th after making contact with each other on lap 46. The incident brought out the safety car for nine laps.

Full results are below. The next race of the 2019 Formula One World Championship is the most prestigious race of the year, the Monaco Grand Prix, on May 26.
