Hamilton wins Spanish GP

While Vettel came out of the pits, he found himself alongside Lewis Hamilton's Mercedes, with both the drivers attacking turn 1 wheel-to-wheel.

Spanish Grand Prix victor Hamilton sounded exhausted when communicating with his engineer via team radio, and after the race he explained that he was pushing from start to finish an attempt to regain the lead after losing it to Sebastian Vettel at the start.

Though Vettel and Hamilton both spoke of their enjoyment of the closely-fought battle at the Circuit de Catalunya, the German says his and Ferrari's main goal is to ensure they don't become a regular occurance.

"This was the rawest fight I have felt in a long time". Today we will enjoy the podium but tomorrow we need to understand how to further close the gap to Ferrari and Mercedes.

"I got a bit fortunate with Valtteri's problem towards the end of the race which bumped me up to third, but of course I'm still happy to be up there again and see all the smiles from the team".

Hamilton will now head to the next round in Monaco just six points shy of the man he is bidding to join on four world titles following a dramatic race in which the championship protagonists diced on track for the first time this season.

"If we had had the same tires on, it probably wouldn't have been as exciting" Hamilton said.

Despite not winning a race since, Verstappen came very close a year ago with four more runner-up finishes.

Russia's top producer Rosneft helped prepare the deal and is ready to comply with the extension, according to Russian media. It seems likely that the current deal amongst Opec nations and some other key oil producing nations will be extended.

Every driver, 1, 2 & 3 on the Podium, was lapped during a terrific race that saw Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen and last year's victor, Max Verstappen, crash out on the 1st lap.

Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen went out at the start after a collision with Red Bull's 2016 victor Verstappen.

Hamilton's out-of-breath radio communication during his Spanish GP battle with Sebastian Vettel prompted questions about how physically demanding he had found the race, to which Hamilton revealed his deliberate lack of a drinks bottle. With this win, Hamilton has managed to cut short Vettel's championship lead from 13 to 6 points.

"I love tennis, I love watching (Roger) Federer and (Novak) Djokovic in a final, and what I really admire is the consistency", Hamilton said afterwards. "Sebastian was very fast but the team did a great job with the strategy". While Bottas was able to continue, the other two suffered suspension failures and were out before the end of the first lap. "He drove a good race and we did everything we could".

Sergio Perez who is representing Force India finished 4th and ensured that his points table kept ticking for the past 15 races successively.

"I was on the inside in Turn One and Kimi came and tried to overtake".

The crash allowed Verstappen's Red Bull teammate Daniel Ricciardo to cruise home in third.
