Spanish F1 Grand Prix: Mercedes in a Race of Its Own


Lewis Hamilton battled against his teammate Nico Rosberg for the top podium position yesterday at the Spanish Grand Prix Formula 1 race in Barcelona. Just like the race in Bahrain, the Mercedes AMG Petronas teammates kept spectators on the edge of their seats as it all came down to the last lap, in which both drivers lapped Kimi Raikkonen’s Ferrari while racing at nose-to-tail distance from each other. But in the end, Rosberg ran out of time and Hamilton crossed the finish line first, with only six-tenths of a second to spare.

Boss Dieter Zetsche couldn’t have been happier as he watched both his Mercedes drivers complete their fourth consecutive race in a one-two finish. All other challengers were nowhere in sight: Red Bull’s Daniel Ricciardo came in third—his first podium finish—a colossal 49-seconds behind Hamilton.

Mercedes AMG Petronas leads the pack in points, with Hamilton charging forwards with 100 points and Rosberg at his heels with 97. Trailing further behind is Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso, who couldn’t have been too pleased with his sixth place performance despite having home-track advantage.
