Lewis Hamilton rejuvenated by Spain F1 victory but wary of Monaco GP

The British racer claimed his second win of this season in Sunday's Spanish Grand Prix.

Hamilton finished over 20 seconds clear in first to move 17 points clear of Ferrari rival Sebastian Vettel in the F1 Drivers' World Championship leaderboard.

Hamilton won from pole, unchallenged by the rest of the grid.

With the exception of the seasonopening Melbourne race, the 33-year-old had so far this season appeared ill at ease in his Mercedes, fighting to impose his will on a capricious vehicle.

Asked about contract talks, Hamilton said.

I do a bit of consultancy work for race track designers and I do wonder whether we ought to be doing something about the circuit to make it more interesting for racing.

After three races in which driver and the team have struggled to unlock performance from tyres and vehicle, Mercedes finally had the platform required at the Circuit de Catalunya. That meant a lights to flag victory for reigning world champion, Lewis Hamilton.

"In the end it was hard because I did almost 45 laps with the medium!" he said, adding that one-stopping had never been the team's original strategy.

"Of course we do not want to lose him, but I also believe that he doesn't want to go somewhere else".

Red Bull once again had a weekend where they couldn't get the qualifying performance they needed, but the race pace was again very good.

Despite the upturn, concerns remain at Mercedes as to whether their auto is able to put its tyres in the correct temperature operating window. Were the two connected, what effect did the tyre adjustment really have, and was it a sign of favouritism towards Mercedes? "We knew that we had a strong vehicle with a lot of pace and I think that we were quicker, but it is so hard to overtake here at this track".

"But we know as well that this was a good circuit for us and the temperatures fell in our favour as well".

The streets of Monte Carlo proved last year's nadir for Hamilton after he qualified only 14th and took the chequered flag in a lowly seventh place on a weekend to forget for the Brit and Mercedes.

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. "The others are going to be hard to beat", he said. While Verstappen claimed the final step on the podium Daniel Ricciardo finished fifth. That is all downforce.
