Lewis Hamilton: Mercedes ace details Monaco Grand Prix hopes after testing

Sebastian Vettel Spanish GP 2018

Hamilton has endorsed Bottas for a long-term role at Mercedes and Wolff also admitted he is on par with the four-time F1 drivers' champion this season, but the team will make a decision on the second driver in the summer. So don't write off the rest of the season! And this is all the more threatening to rivals because the Circuit de Catalunya is arguably the most representative circuit visited so far this season. No sooner would the race begin to settle than Esteban Ocon's Force India came to a halt, prompting the Virtual Safety Car.

"We should be at least as fast as we are this year but just making racing better". "After a weekend like the last one, yes".

"I think it's pretty straightforward", Vettel said. He also struggled with the balance of the vehicle and in the end could only finish fourth. "It's a bit like cruising to America and changing direction 100 times".

Isola also hit out at suggestions the change might have been made to help Mercedes and disadvantage Ferrari. Hamilton pointed particularly to Red Bull's performance in the slow, last part of the lap in Spain, which echoes some of the characteristics of the Monaco track.

"We are not far from finalising things". Let's wait and see!

Mercedes have offered an explanation for the delay in signing a fresh contract with Lewis Hamilton by saying both parties wanted to focus on improving the Formula One team's vehicle.

Testing in northeastern Spain concludes on Wednesday. The supersoft tyre wasn't delivering the grip and peak performance they expected and, in fact, the Ferrari drivers ended up qualifying on the soft tyre even in Q3. Here in Barcelona, however, the German failed to trouble the top of the order all weekend, and that will be of grave concern to those at Ferrari. But on Sunday, Lewis Hamilton was in devastating form.

But Vettel struggled with tire wear and Ferrari chose to bring him in for an extra stop.

This will be the first meeting between the leaders since President Putin was re-elected in March. Doval had said, indicating a gradual resetting of ties between India, Russia and China.

Lewis Hamilton said his world championship defence has been revived by victory at the Spanish Grand Prix.

The 33-year-old said that "at no point" did he think he would lose the race, but insisted he was working hard.

Hamilton pulled away early and was able to comfortably control the pace of the race through to the end, finishing more than 20 seconds ahead of his teammate.

"Unfortunately very often there is a meeting and they don't come to the meeting".

Daniel Ricciardo, meanwhile, had an anonymous race.

"In the following races, we struggled in many areas and all that adds up and was in all our minds".

The race restarted at the end of the sixth lap in the same positions and was running smoothly, but then things started to go wrong for Ferrari.

According to Shovlin, formerly of Honda, Hamilton was theoretically capable of stretching his first stint beyond 26 laps but Mercedes took no chances with the sizeable gap he had created. Why on earth he kept his foot hard on the throttle, spun back into the pack and created that smoke cloud I have no idea, but it was an extremely risky thing to do. Renault's Nico Hulkenberg and Torro Rosso's Pierre Gasly got collected in the wreck. "But it's as much as I am overwhelmed with the victory today, my mind is already in Monaco and I remember Sunday night was not as pleasant past year". It's the jewel in F1's crown, and Ferrari versus Mercedes versus Red Bull should be well and truly on. Kimi Raikkonen took pole a year ago.
