Lewis Hamilton takes another record from Michael Schumacher in Spain

  • Hamilton ends Vettel’s pole run in Spain

Here's some key takeaways from Barcelona.

Hamilton conceded that he will head to the next round in Monaco with caution rather than in expectation following his poor display at the principality past year, but the 64th win of his career will, for the first time this term, provide him with optimism that he can outdo Vettel in their tug of war for glory.

The victory means Hamilton leads the Drivers' Championship by 17 points ahead of Sebastian Vettel. Advantage may be in the reigning champion's favour now but expect Vettel to fight back in Monaco in two weeks' time.

Shock: That so many drivers didn't set their fastest time on the super-soft tyre.

Lewis Hamilton eventually won the Grand Prix by a margin of over 20 seconds, highlighting the gulf between the two drivers this weekend.

It should also be a good chance for Red Bull to bounce back after last race's disaster.

The defending Formula One world champion was at his imperious best as he won by 20 seconds from Valtteri Bottas in a welcome one-two for Mercedes. Meanwhile, Max Verstappen was able to hold off Vettel until the end.

Nation's oldest veteran turns 112
Overton said that he is "enjoying [himself]", keeping busy as he advances through the long winter of his life. But what has kept Overton going these 111 years? Veteran Richard Overton oldest World War II veteran.

The Finn has been on fire in 2018 but he was forced to retire in Barcelona due to engine failure.

When the virtual safety vehicle was deployed after Esteban Ocon retired at the side of the track on lap 41, Ferrari gambled on fitting new rubber to Vettel's auto but the stop was slow and he emerged behind Bottas and Verstappen in fourth place, sacrificing track position they could not get back. The Frenchman then collected the Renault of Nico Hulkenberg and Pierre Gasly's Toro Rosso in a major smash, fortunately without injury, that brought out the safety vehicle for the first six laps.

All three were out of the race in an instant to mark another embarrassing chapter for Grosjean after he crashed out under the safety auto last time out in Baku. The American outfit had aimed to threaten their big midfield rivals this campaign, but the car's lack of pace and consistency has seen them struggle so far.

Even if one were to assume that two-stopping was Ferrari's strategy for Vettel's race, it wouldn't be too hard to think that they were more foolhardy than fearless. A lap later, McLaren's Stoffel Vandoorne retired, propulsion lost out of the last corner. It proved to be an unlucky afternoon for the 21-year-old after a brilliant drive was hampered by a bad pitstop, and then a faulty engine. If not, then the tables have clearly turned and could Mercedes be in the pounding seat for season honours.

Grosjean's spinning auto resulted in an array of tyre smoke and the unsighted Hulkenberg and Gasly creamed into the stricken Haas, leaving all three out on the spot.

Sergio Perez took on fresh tyres when his team-mate exited and moved up into ninth place, while Leclerc added another point to Sauber's tally by rounding out the top 10.
