Toto Wolff gives his thoughts on Sebastian Vettel's controversial second pit stop

Toto Wolff gives his thoughts on Sebastian Vettel's controversial second pit stop

Hamilton took the checkered flag on lap 66, becoming the first driver to score points in 30 straight Grands Prix, and further raising the bar for most consecutive race starts, with 213.

Vettel looked set to finish behind Hamilton to limit the title damage, but Ferrari's gamble to pit him for a second time backfired with Valtteri Bottas following Hamilton home to secure Mercedes' first one-two finish of the season. Red Bull's Max Verstappen repeated Hamilton's complaint of rain around Turn 12 on lap 24, before dodging Ferrari's Kimi Räikkönen, whose power loss replicated that endured by the Finn on Saturday, ending his race-much to the chagrin of his biggest fan, who was a special guest of the Scuderia for this Grand Prix. "Today, the auto and myself, I felt that synergy today, which I hadn't been feeling for the whole year, so it's a good feeling".

Sebastian Vettel has backed Ferrari's strategy at the Spanish GP despite losing two places through a second pit-stop, insisting the team had "no option" but to differ from their rivals.

His team boss Toto Wolff suggested some of the reason for Hamilton's upturn in form may also have been psychological, following his victory in Baku.

Currently, talks with Lewis Hamilton have been delayed and there is speculation Valtteri Bottas might be replaced by Daniel Ricciardo, a Mercedes junior, or even Fernando Alonso.

"That feeling that I'm going to sleep like a baby tonight, because I know I've done my job this weekend to the maximum and I didn't leave anything on the table, there's no better feeling". "I needed this pole because I haven't had one for a while". "I would like to hope it could be part of the turning point".

Unified North, South Korea TT team lose
The unified Korean team is guaranteed a place on the podium and medals regardless of their semi-final result. The South Korean players are: Jeon Ji-hee, Kim Ji-ho, Suh Hyo-won, Yang Ha-eun and Yoo Eun-chong.

Mexican Sergio Perez of Pressure India made a late overtaking transfer on Sauber's Charles Leclerc for ninth, but it surely had been one other spectacular drive by the younger Monagesque. That could be a disadvantage for the McLaren driver as the stint wears on, but from eighth on the grid he will have more grip at the start and a good chance of making up positions on the long run down to Turn 1. "I was pushing every single lap using it as a test bench to understand what I liked about the balance and how can I play with it more and how can I squeeze more out of it and do all sorts to understand what more I can get from". While recovering, he failed to realise that there were still cars around him.

The victory bodes well for Mercedes for the rest of the season as the performances in Barcelona - where most teams bring significant vehicle updates - usually set the tone for the rest of the races on the European portion of the calendar.

Ferrari surrendered the lead in the constructors' championship to Mercedes and now trail them by 27 points after five races.

The historic likelihood of a Safety Car at Barcelona is as low as 20 percent but the new track surface may have an impact on that as well.

"I couldn't go anywhere, couldn't avoid him and he took the back end of my vehicle". A lap later, McLaren's Stoffel Vandoorne retired, propulsion lost out of the last corner.
