Hamilton beats Bottas at Spanish GP for 5th Mercedes 1-2

May 12, 2019 First placed Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton with Chairman of the Board of Management of Mercedes Benz Dieter Zetsche on the podium.

As for Hamilton, he is now seven points clear of his teammate Valtteri Bottas in the standings, but their Mercedes team secured their fifth one-two finish in as many races so far this season. All ten teams are present and the focus was split between gathering data on test parts and preparation for the next round in Monaco.

Hamilton previously had Nico Rosberg, the now-retired 2016 champion in a season when Mercedes won 19 of the 21 races, as his main rival and that led to a breakdown in relations between the former friends. He went on to take a commanding victory, just over 4sec ahead of Bottas.

"We will bring our first development to Canada", he confirmed.

"This is also why we made a decision to go that way". Therefore, Ferrari made a decision to let Charles Leclerc past the German to try and catch up with the leaders.

"[On the fastest lap] I was trying to keep the tyres warm". Gasly struggled throughout the day and it was cut short due to a transmission issue on his vehicle. The British driver walked away from the wreckage but images of the Alfa Romeo returning to the pits showed significant damage to the left hand-side of the vehicle. At the moment, I'm just enjoying driving with this team. "It was out of nowhere and then I backed into the wall". It is a circuit with a long and impressive history of competition and is a great challenge for drivers, and with the popularity of Max Verstappen I'm sure there will be a huge number of fans in attendance.

"In the end, obviously I did Lewis a favour because I distracted Valtteri".

"I'll be giving it everything", he said.

"For me personally, it wasn't the best of days, but from a team's perspective it was a really good weekend".

"If anything you blame me more than anything else. But when I get things right, it should be different to that".

Brad Keselowski had planned to head to St. Louis after the NASCAR Cup Series race at Kansas Speedway to visit Mike Mittler, a longtime Truck Series owner who helped him early in his career and had been battling cancer the past couple years. The victory took Bottas back to the top of the championship, only one point ahead of his teammate, leaving the pair over thirty points ahead of the closest Ferrari.

Testing is set to continue tomorrow.

"If you look at the last sector in Barcelona, then Mercedes is really very quick, so they will go there as favourites".
