Lewis Hamilton not getting carried away despite dominant Spanish Grand Prix win

Lewis Hamilton says he is "nearly in the groove" after claiming a second successive Formula One win at the Spanish Grand Prix on Sunday.

Ferrari believed that the decision cost them race pace on Sunday and took the opportunity to test out the difference for themselves during testing on Tuesday in Barcelona - and Vettel believes they have had a final verdict on the decision.

Pirelli brought in thinner tyres for the GP as they were anxious the heat in Barcelona could cause problems with the thicker variant teams had been using. On Wednesday he switched to the latest specification of the auto as part of a normal test day for McLaren and said he immediately noticed the difference between the two.

He said "Before I was like, "Maybe I'm just insane and everyone has got quicker and I've got slower".

But Bottas said: "I think there's been quite mixed races and the end results haven't been really I feel sometimes quite there, that I feel would have been possible with the pace we have".

Mercedes boss Toto Wolff said: "My mind is already on Monaco and I remember it wasn't a pleasant Sunday night past year". The issue was notspecified by the team but brought an early end to Magnussen's running.

Defensively, the Winnipeg Jets are allowing 2.6 goals per game and are killing 81.8 percent of their opponents power plays. Marc Andre-Fleury was as sharp as ever in net with 33 saves, but he didn't have to do much for the first half of the game.

Asked about contract talks, Hamilton said. "I'm not pushing for that only, it's definitely my target and I'm always trying to deliver the best I can and be as professional as I can be". Mercedes won the fourth race in Azerbaijan, but it was clear that it was surrounding circumstances that helped them win.

Behind him, neither Sauber's Charles Leclerc nor Williams driver Robert Kubica improved in the afternoon, ending the day separated by 0.260s using hypersofts in seventh and eighth respectively. His day at the wheel of the FW41 ended with 123 laps on the board as the team looked to better understand the issues it has faced with its auto since the start of the year.

Many teams used junior drivers, defined as a driver who has completed two or fewer races, as required by F1 regulations for in-season testing. Struggling with his tyres, Vettel would pit on lap 17.

Red Bull simulator driver Jake Dennis made his F1 debut in an RB14 on Wednesday. "Race by race we're understanding the tyres more, which is a bit battle for everyone". Nicolas Latifi was the other driver on Pirelli duty, getting his second consecutive day in the Force India as a result.
