Lewis Hamilton triumph at the Spanish GP: the Mercedes driver won by staying in the lead from start to finish. Second place for Max Verstappen's Red Bull, ahead of Vallteri Bottas' other Mercedes.
Still a bad day for Ferrari
Retirement for Charles Leclerc's Ferrari.
Seventh place for Sebastian Vettel. This is Hamilton's fourth victory in six races. The Englishman thus confirms himself at the top of the standings ahead of Verstappen, Bottas and Leclerc. Hamilton with his Mercedes was in the lead from the start, never worried by rivals enough to give 24 seconds to the second-placed Red Bull.
Behind Hamilton, Verstappen and Bottas, Perez crossed the line with Racing Point in front of Stroll with the other 'Racing', Sainz with McLaren and Ferrari driver Vettel who arrived with completely worn tires. Is this Sebastian Vettel's worst season? It seems like Sebastian Vettel is not happy with his team's tactics.
He thinks the tactics didn't make sense “I don't agree with the statement. I think we're trying to do everything we can." - as quoted by Formula1 “Obviously it's never relaxed if things don't go your way or they go wrong, so naturally I think if you judge just the emotions right after the race or during the race, then I don't think that's a fair reflection of what actually is going on, hence why I would tend to disagree.
“I didn't have a great race, we tried to come back up and we could have opted for maybe a different strategy but we didn't. We've talked about it, sorted it out and moved on, so there's not much difference in terms of climate compared to the week before, or even before that”.
When asked if 2020 is the worst season of his career he said “No… I don't like labeling seasons… but certainly, the last race wasn't my best, that I can say, and I think whatever the situation is, I trust the people around me and the guys working on my car."
“I’ve been in a happier place,” he added. “I love, obviously, fighting at the front. I love winning and feeling that you can achieve great results and that we haven't done yet. "It will be difficult this year with the package that we have, but I think Charles has proven that still you can do good races, and obviously if you make sure you are in the right position, you are able to also be in a position to benefit from it, and then you can still get a podium."
