Historic victory for Mercedes as Hamilton wins Spanish GP

Historic victory for Mercedes as Hamilton wins Spanish GP

Mercedes-AMG Formula 1 team principal Toto Wolff revealed in an interview that he has discussed the possibility of his star driver Lewis Hamilton eventually driving for Scuderia Ferrari.

After Hamilton was shown Shaw's message by Mercedes, the five-time world champion sent a number of gifts including a replica Formula One auto and the Spanish Grand Prix trophy. "I think this is the strongest team there is and has ever been and it would be hard to break that".

Hamilton described Harry as his "spirit angel" as he dedicated his victory to him on Sunday.

Some have suggested that a potential stumbling block to a Ferrari move for Hamilton is the presence of his long-term rival Sebastian Vettel, although Wolff did not dismiss the idea of a Hamilton-Vettel swap.

Despite finishing behind team-mate Valtteri Bottas in qualifying, Hamilton produced an inspired start to take a lead he never surrendered and is now clear favourite to win a sixth world title.

There was no need for that on Sunday, with Bottas experiencing clutch problems at the start and having to settle for second.

"When I woke up this morning, I was a bit lost and wondering how today was going to go".

Verstappen took advantage of the joisting to slip by Vettel and into third, a result that moved the Belgian into a distant third place in the standings. "That's what Formula One is about", said Hamilton.

The safety vehicle bunched up the field again, creating some much-needed tension but Hamilton had everything under control at the re-start.

"I had a flat spot after the first corner where I knew that this would be the only chance to really try and do something against Mercedes", explained Vettel, who finished off the podium for the third time in five races.

"We are disappointed for the race, disappointed for the performance in the weekend. We brought some upgrades, aero and engine, and were expecting somehow to be in the fight but it has not been the case". Once in front he cruised through the race's 66 laps of the Barcelona-Catalunya circuit without a challenge. His team mate Lando Norris brought out the safety vehicle on lap 46 after colliding with Racing Point's Lance Stroll.

"There's a lot of respect between the two of them".

Spaniard Carlos Sainz was eighth for McLaren and Daniil Kvyat ninth for Toro Rosso.
