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

  • Major concerns Toto Wolff admits Mercedes are worried

He won at this track in 2017, though, and with Mercedes locking out on the front row, Hamilton can hope for some assistance in keeping Vettel at bay. Despite winning in Spain after one victory in the opening four grands prix a year ago, it did not turn out to be the race that kick-started his season.

BARCELONA, Spain (AP) - Mercedes got the commanding victory it had been seeking all season.

LEWIS HAMILTON said his Spanish Grand Prix victory had revitalised him after a hard start to the season, BBC Sport reports. In Spain, though, he was one with his vehicle again and his claim to victory never under threat. "Everything's going fine", Wolff said.

We've seen the wings get bigger, smaller, wider, higher, lower and a combination of all of these, but the feeling coming out of the F1 technical camp is that this time the changes proposed have been better researched than anytime before.

"But we know that this was a good circuit for us and the temperatures fell in our favor as well". The trouble we have now is that with the modern cars carrying so much downforce, Turn 1 isn't a long braking zone and the only decent braking zone into Turn 10 comes after two corners where it's very hard to follow the vehicle in front.

Coming off four straight titles in both the constructors' and drivers' championships, Mercedes had started the season by showing good pace in Australia, although it let victory escape thanks in part to an ill-timed safety auto that helped Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel earn the win in Melbourne.

After a relatively sluggish start to 2018, Mercedes AMG Petronas Motorsport's chief race engineer Andrew Shovlin has said that the team's first 1-2 finish of the season is a "great reward".

Hamilton toasted his triumph with the former McLaren driver Kevin Magnussen, who finished sixth for Haas, into the early hours ahead of his return to the cockpit of his Mercedes today for this week's test at the Circuit de Catalunya. The street circuit demands setups that work well on slow corners, traditionally a strength for Ferrari and Red Bull.

He added: "If we were to look at others, Daniel is definitely among them". Last season they were off the pace in Monaco, with Hamilton failing to make it out of Q2 and finishing seventh after being unable to work enough heat into his tyres.

"I was in a hard situation after the first stint because I was stuck behind Sebastian", he said. But the German marque struggled past year in Monaco, with Ferrari sweeping to a one-two finish.

Hamilton now sits 17 points clear of Sebastian Vettel in the drivers' standings. The team has a 27-point lead over Ferrari in the constructors' championship.
