Warm weather gave me the win: Hamilton

Not only has Hamilton won the Spanish Grand Prix, team mate Bottas has taken second place - 20 seconds behind Hamilton - followed by Max Verstappen in the Red Bull and Sebastian Vettel in the Ferrari. Mercedes have not been able to get the most from their vehicle since the opening round in Melbourne and have been repeatedly out-paced by Ferrari. Starting on pole, the 33-year-old briefly relinquished the lead when he went in to pit on lap 26, but stormed ahead to snatch victory and now leads the title race by 18 points. I think that showed in my face [as he celebrated after winning]. "Let's keep it up". The speed is there and the driveability is much better than Mercedes' auto.

McLaren put a vehicle into Q3 for the first time this season with Fernando Alonso in eighth place.

Mercedes will be optimistic that they are getting to grips wth the issue of putting their tyres in the correct operating window that has seen them struggling for performance thus far.

As a result, his vehicle created a cloud of black smoke and was invisible to following drivers as they raced into it - Nico Hulkenberg, of Renault, and Pierre Gasly, of Toro Rosso - both smashing into him.

All three drivers were unhurt but it was an exceptionally unsafe incident and why Grosjean kept his foot on the gas as he span, causing smoke that unsighted the following drivers, seems inexplicable.

After edging out Bottas for pole, Hamilton roared off the line to retain his lead on the 200mph charge to the opening bend, while Vettel got the jump on Bottas after a gutsy move around the outside of the Finn.

It was a fairly straightforward win for Mercedes and Lewis Hamilton. The defending four-time world champion dominated from start to finish, save for a spell during the mid-race pit-stops, and clocked a series of record laps as he registered his second successive win.

The British driver, who clocked the fastest lap of one hour and 17.281 seconds, was was just 0.013 seconds ahead of Bottas, the Formula1.com reported.

Hamilton was relieved to be up front again. If it's cold, like it has been in the coolest days here, it could be hard, but we definitely go there on a high note - and we definitely don't take for granted the fact that we still have a mountain to climb.

That error meant the German emerged back on track behind Verstappen's Red Bull. When Vettel made his second stop during a late virtual safety vehicle period, after Esteban Ocon parked up his Force India by the side of the track, it backfired and he lost places instead of gaining anything.

Max Verstappen finished third for Red Bull, while Ferrari's Sebastien Vettel finished a disappointing fourth.

Hamilton, however, was in cruise control, as he made his one and only trouble-free stop on lap 25.

In securing his second win of the 2018 campaign and his first back-to-back triumphs following his win in Baku, Hamilton proved that Azerbaijan wasn't just a flash in the pan, even if it could have been described an "inherited win".
