Lewis Hamilton hails Mercedes 'synergy' after emphatic Spanish GP triumph

Alonso and the updated Mc Laren MCL33

Mercedes has struggled compared to Ferrari at times this season, with Sebastian Vettel winning the opening two races and taking three consecutive pole positions as the Scuderia had a more consistent auto. "Let's keep this up". Valtteri Bottas backed his team-mate up in second, concluding Mercedes' first one-two of the season, with Red Bull's Max Verstappen taking his first podium of the year in third.

It was the first one-two of the season for Mercedes, which had been slower than Ferrari in the past few races.

"Today the auto and myself, I felt that synergy which I hadn't been feeling for the whole year", he added in a pre-podium interview after parking up in pit lane. I was feeling good.

It was a record-extending 74th pole for Hamilton, and the first since the season-opener in Australia.

Sunday's Spanish Grand Prix was destined to be full of turmoil from before it began, courtesy of rain overnight that cut grip levels at Circuit de Catalunya.

Eurovision terminates broadcast contract after China LGBT censorship
And now that we've found out the running order for Saturday night, we're officially nearly at the Eurovision finals. Such censorship is perhaps unsurprising from a country which has a history of media censorship.

"I remember like it was yesterday sitting at home playing this computer game as Michael", Hamilton said.

"So, it was definitely important, and I am happy too especially because I had such a busy week coming into this weekend". He has some serious records.

Hartley started the race in last place but he gave everything he had to move up eight spots.

"It's a bit early to say, but I would like to hope it could be part of the turning point", he said.

Hamilton had also won in Azerbaijan two weeks ago, but that victory came mostly because of incidents involving his closest competitors, including a blown tire for Bottas, a mistake by Vettel and a crash between Red Bull teammates Daniel Ricciardo and Verstappen. Ferrari was attempting to cover off Valtteri Bottas behind, who may have tried to undercut him by pitting earlier, but Vettel's early stop tied him to a one-stop for the rest of the race. "Friday, Saturday was more hard and on Valtteri we were taking the tire pretty far".

Pens: Muller spectacular time to complete the investigation
When the time comes that Trump is sent packing, Mike Pence should be where he's been all along, right beside him. I think it's time to wrap it up.

But Vettel struggled with tire wear and Ferrari made a decision to bring him in for an extra stop. Therefore we were not able to stay out for another 25 laps. "It looks different and it looks wrong, but from the inside I think it was the right thing to do". Vettel won in Australia and Bahrain, while Ricciardo was first in China and Hamilton triumphed in Azerbaijan.

As he spun back across the track, Nico Hulkenberg tried to take avoiding action in his Renault but had his rear wheel caught by Grosjean's auto, and Toro Rosso's Pierre Gasly, unsighted, smashed into the side of the Haas.

Grosjean, who struggled throughout the weekend and had crashed behind the safety vehicle in Azerbaijan, failed to stop his auto from spinning across the track on Turn 3 and Hulkenberg and Gasly could not avoid colliding with him. "We tried our best, but something was missing and we need to improve on this".

"If you look from outside it's easier, but inside the auto, we were going through the tyres too quick". I didn't know what the pace would be.

"It wasn't so comfortable as it looked because the race was good", Wolff said. It capped off a disappointing afternoon for Ferrari, who saw Kimi Raikkonen retire after suffering a loss of power with a brand new engine which had been fitted to his vehicle on Saturday morning. Stoffel Vandoorne, Esteban Ocon and Kimi Raikkonen stopped through mechanical failures, along with Grosjean, Gasly and Hulkenberg who were eliminated in the first lap accident.
