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.

"I think today has been a rejuvenating experience", he said. "It's a good feeling".

This was the second pole position of the season for Hamilton, a four-time world champion, following the Australian Grand Prix.

F1 said the "issues" affected customers only during live playback but all sessions from this weekend's Spanish GP were available on demand, including all onboard cameras and team radio. "It's hard to beat all of these records that he has".

Meanwhile, two separate applications have also been filed with the police for registration of treason case against Nawaz Sharif. He added: Even if the statement (of Sharif) is taken as a big news by India, it is not a compelling evidence.

This was the kind of drive that will prompt speculation the reigning champion could be about to turn the screw in his pursuit of a fifth drivers' title. "A one-two for the team; we've got our Mercedes board with us who have been supporting us from day one, so it's great to have them here and just see that true force within the team".

"So that's why I'm only partly celebrating".

Hamilton will hope also that Ferrari fail to repeat the form that brought them a one-two finish in the Mediterranean principality previous year where Vettel won.

Hamilton stayed out until lap 25 and slotted back in behind the yet-to-stop Verstappen, who had profited from the exit of Kimi Raikkonen mere minutes before. Mercedes and Red Bull appeared to have improved the most, although Ferrari usually shows its best pace in qualifying and in the race. " "I don't think it's only the track", he said".

"Barcelona holds mixed memories for us-a double DNF in 2016, but also a dramatic win for Lewis past year after passing [Sebastian] Vettel on track for the lead", Mercedes CEO Toto Wolff said. Sebastian Vettel finished fourth.

The safety car's appearance was brought about by a huge crash that saw Nico Hulkenberg and Pierre Gasly wiped out by a spinning Romain Grosjean on the opening lap. The rain threatened to return, with clouds hanging darker than the Catalan tarmac, and with the four race strong streak of safety cars both virtual and real, a monkey wrench looked certain to be thrown into the race's proceedings.

He was running in second but lost two places to Valtteri Bottas and then Max Verstappen during a sluggish stop to cross the line in fourth position.

"I couldn't go anywhere, couldn't avoid him and he took the back end of my auto. It is a little bit disheartening as I don't really know what I could have done more". "It feels nice to be on the podium and nice to have a good, clean race". It capped off a disappointing afternoon for Ferrari, who saw Kimi Raikkonen retire after suffering a loss of power with a brand new engine which had been fitted to his vehicle on Saturday morning.
