Lewis Hamilton wins the 2018 Spanish GP

Lewis Hamilton wins the 2018 Spanish GP

Hamilton crossed the finish line over 20 seconds ahead of Mercedes team-mate Valtteri Bottas, a win which extended his championship lead over Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel to 17 points. He also struggled with the balance of the vehicle and in the end could only finish fourth.

The world champion had struggled for competitiveness in the previous three races, despite a win in Azerbaijan. F1's top drivers are calling for those in charge of the series to start paying attention to what they have to say when it comes to improving the sport. Hamilton pointed particularly to Red Bull's performance in the slow, last part of the lap in Spain, which echoes some of the characteristics of the Monaco track.

We've seen the wings get bigger, smaller, wider, higher, lower and a combination of all of these, but the feeling coming out of the F1 technical camp is that this time the changes proposed have been better researched than anytime before.

There were talks about the tide turning in Ferrari's favor prior to the Spanish Grand Prix, but Mercedes returned to the top step of the podium with a dominant display from Lewis Hamilton, who looked unassailable during the race. There are arguments for both sides, of course, but in principle we would all like to see more overtaking.

Testing in northeastern Spain concludes on Wednesday.

Both Hamilton and Wolff said they had concerns that they might not be able to keep up the momentum at the next race in Monaco on 24-27 May, however, where Mercedes struggled previous year. Struggling with his tyres, Vettel would pit on lap 17.

The Tory leader says he would cut the provincial gas tax by 5.7 cents a litre. " Doug Ford doesn't understand this". Ford has said that he would fight the federal government's carbon tax in the courts if necessary.

"It's hard on a race weekend to complete proper tests due to the limited number of tyres, the constantly evolving track and the requirement to get the maximum speed out of the vehicle". They blistered very seriously and could have caused serious problems.

75% - Points scored by Vettel through the first five races compared to previous year (104 in 2017, 78 in 2018). On lap 34 Daniel Ricciardo finally heads to the pits allowing Vettel and Bottas to advance.

"The last three races have been fantastic, so why not just let that go until [the 2021 rules reset], then use those two or three years to get it done properly?"

According to Shovlin, formerly of Honda, Hamilton was theoretically capable of stretching his first stint beyond 26 laps but Mercedes took no chances with the sizeable gap he had created. The Swede had started the race on the medium compound tyres when most of the grid went with the soft option. "I'm looking forward to Monaco; hopefully we can take some of the things we've learned onto there".

Just ask Kimi Raikkonen. F1 heads to Monaco next, and it was there where Hamilton endured his worst weekend of the year in 2017; 14th in qualifying, seventh by the chequered flag.
