Lewis Hamilton Wins the 2018 Spanish GP — Twitter Reacts

Phil Duncan

Lewis Hamilton eventually won the Grand Prix by a margin of over 20 seconds, highlighting the gulf between the two drivers this weekend.

When the virtual safety vehicle was deployed after Esteban Ocon retired at the side of the track on lap 41, Ferrari gambled on fitting new rubber to Vettel's auto but the stop was slow and he emerged behind Bottas and Verstappen in fourth place, sacrificing track position they could not get back. I wouldn't say I had flawless synergy but close. Mercedes reacted by accelerating Bottas, who pitted as a reaction the following lap, but a sluggish 3.9 second stop saw track position remain Vettel's, with both drivers behind Magnussen.

Beating Hamilton was never on the cards but Bottas fought hard, overcoming tyre wear (on the medium compounds) to defend track position from Max Verstappen who was breathing on the tail in the final laps. During the pitstop phase, Bottas was able to leapfrog Vettel and secure a 1-2 for Mercedes.

Bottas claimed his first Spanish Grand Prix podium, while Verstappen's race was compromised late on when he damaged his front wing running into the back of Williams' Lance Stroll. "People probably think it was an easy race and I was cruising but I wasn't cruising".

Hamilton led from pole position.

"I think it's obviously a little bit early to say but I would like to hope that it could be part of a turning point".

Ferrari have had the best auto so far this year, but Spain marked a turning point with Mercedes dominating throughout the weekend.

Meanwhile, referring to Hamilton's delayed contract, team chairman Lauda told Bild am Sonntag newspaper: "We have no time pressure". Fernando Alonso managed further points in eighth, with Force India' Sergio Pérez in ninth.

Lap 6/66 We're still waiting for all the debris to be cleared from the track after that incident, which left Hulkenberg, Gasly, and Grosjean all out.

He was at his very best in Melbourne but was then, by his own admission, off-colour in Bahrain, China and even Baku despite his victory.

Grosjean, who struggled throughout the weekend, couldn't stop his vehicle from spinning across the track on Turn 3 and Hulkenberg and Gasly could not avoid colliding with him.

Behind the leading four, despite being fast and setting the fastest lap of the race, Daniel Ricciardo brought the second Red Bull home in fifth.

Lap 2/66 Romain Grosjean has heavy damage and the safety vehicle is out.

"I couldn't go anywhere, couldn't avoid him and he took the back end of my vehicle".

After another incident on Lap 44, Esteban Ocon retired after Verstappen went into the back of his auto, while McLaren's Stoffel Vandoorne lost power on his vehicle and was also forced to retire. Hamilton now leads Vettel by 17 points in the title race.

Verstappen had trailed Raikkonen throughout the first stint but the Finn suffered a suspected engine issue and slowed, dropping out of fourth place, before retiring altogether.
