Britain's Lewis Hamilton wins Spanish Grand Prix

The car of Brendon Hartley of New Zealand and Scuderia Toro Rosso is recovered from the track after he crashed during final practice for Spanish Formula One Grand Prix at Circuit de Catalunya

In utter control of the proceedings from the word go, an indomitable Lewis Hamilton reigned supreme in Barcelona, winning the Spanish Grand Prix ahead of teammate Valtteri Bottas and Red Bull's Max Verstappen.

The see-sawing battle for supremacy between Ferrari and Lewis Hamilton's Mercedes team continues as the Formula One championship enters its European phase in Barcelona, where Hamilton leads a Mercedes lockout of the front row.

"This has happened before", said Raikkonen.

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 courageous. Max Verstappen (Red Bull): +26.873s 4.

It was Hamilton's second win in succession, and the Briton acknowledged it had been by far his most complete race of the season. One of them was Haas driver Romain Grosjean, who spun his vehicle following the start into Turn 1, collecting Nico Hulkenberg and Pierre Gasly, which put all three out of the race with sufficient damage. All three cars suffered heavy damage and the race was immediately brought under the control of the safety auto.

Trump to help Chinese telco ZTE 'get back into business' following ban
The suspension of ZTE's operations follows several recent actions by the US government that hindered its business prospects. Qualcomm last month said it expected lost sales to ZTE to lower its earnings by 3 cents per share in the current quarter.

Sebastian Vettel had taken the previous three poles before Saturday and, while Hamilton regained the championship lead two weekends ago, Ferrari are ahead in the constructors' standings. Whilst doing that it will open a shop window - as such - for a more experienced team to give Leclerc a better opportunity in a faster auto when his contract expires in 2019.

The season-opening Australian Grand Prix aside, Mercedes has been chasing Ferrari in the early part of the season, and even with Hamilton's victory in Azerbaijan, questions were still being asked about their performance levels.

Raikkonen conceded the supersoft tyres, which have given teams a headache this weekend, continued to pose a challenge for Ferrari, and he highlighted the thinner tread being used this weekend as a possible factor. Ricciardo was followed by Haas" Kevin Magnussen - strengthening belief (yet again!) - that his team is the "best of the rest' and if they string a race together, a good result is possible. "To think that it's my 64th but it still feels like the first, still feels special, still feels unique in its own and the journey to it is why it feels unique". Stewards gave him two penalty points and imposed a three-place grid drop for the next race in Monaco.

Crowd-favourite Fernando Alonso was sixth fastest with McLaren in the morning but was 12 in the second session.

Force India driver Sergio Perez and Sauber's Charles Leclerc put in sterling performances to claim ninth and 10th positions respectively. The Haas driver collected Pierre Gasly and Nico Hulkenberg in the process.
