A brilliant strategy, some incredible tyre management and a calm head under extreme pressure helps Hamilton pull off another incredible win.

Hamilton triumphed for his sixth Spanish Grand Prix win, as he extends his lead in the championship.

The world champion confirmed his position as one of Formula 1’s greatest ever qualifiers with his 100th pole position at the Spanish Grand Prix, with the achievement drawing fulsome praise from his team boss Toto Wolff, who called it proof that Hamilton was “clearly the outstanding driver” competing in Formula 1 currently.

Verstappen led the majority of the race after brilliantly snatching the lead from Hamilton into Turn 1 at the start, with Red Bull then committing to a one-stop strategy around the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, as Hamilton opted for two.

But with six laps to go, Hamilton used the superior performance of his newer tyres to pass the Dutchman into Turn 1 and check out for his 98th victory, and fifth straight win at the circuit – Verstappen ultimately deciding to pit for softs once Hamilton was past and go for a consolation fastest lap, which he duly got.

Verstappen came home second, Bottas third. Leclerc was fourth, Perez fifth and Ricciardo just held onto sixth. Sainz, Norris, Ocon and Gasly rounded out the top 10.
