One, we were not quick enough and if we are not able to see then we are more than blind. So don't write off the rest of the season! "We had problems finding the right balance of the vehicle and we were struggling with the front tires". Plus, if we don't have the occasional boring race, we won't appreciate the good ones! "I only said that we are loyal first of all to our drivers. After a weekend like the last one, yes".

"Obviously we don't want to lose him and I don't think he wants to go anywhere else".

After three races in which driver and the team have struggled to unlock performance from tyres and auto, Mercedes finally had the platform required at the Circuit de Catalunya. Will it be Mercedes or Ferrari or Red Bull? I felt that synergy which I hadn't been feeling for the whole year. "But it was good to have the possibility to revisit, and now it's up to us to take action".

"But when we saw the tyres were holding up better than expected, we changed our strategy".

"But Mercedes have looked strong".

"It's a different track, so for us the work was more global, to keep understanding the vehicle, to be able to pinpoint the weaknesses of the auto and make sure we take the right direction, we take the right steps that it needs when we go to tracks that are similar to this one to be competitive".

Hamilton had the sixth fastest time and put in the most work of any driver with 151 laps in his Mercedes.

They rediscovered it around the long sweeps of the 4.6-kilometer long track and unleashed it to devastating effect.

The tyres created all sorts of headaches for the teams. After that I was really surprised they didn't have the pace to keep up with me.

Lewis Hamilton had struggled on Saturdays and particularly Sundays since the opening round in Australia, being out-raced by his team-mate in Bahrain, China and Azerbaijan.

By his statements, Wolff was referring to Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas. Meanwhile, Vettel made an early pit-stop on lap 17 in an attempt to prevent Bottas from jumping him in the pits.

Behind Vettel and Bottas, Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen was keeping the error-prone Verstappen at bay, with the Dutchman beyond the DRS range of the Finn.

"We are not far from finalising things".

Hamilton was never challenged on the way to his 41st win from pole position, surpassing a record he shared with seven-time world champion Michael Schumacher.

Grosjean's spin that caused carnage on Lap 1 was the only bit of excitement of the Grand Prix.

"My job is not to worry so much but preparing by extracting as much as I can from my engineers; to make sure the debrief is good, to reconnect with them later in the week once they have downloaded everything, and see that we have followed through with all the things that I have asked them to do". So more [useful work for] normal tracks, seeing what the auto does.

On to Monaco next, where I've been this weekend driving at the Historic Grand Prix weekend in a Williams that Keke Rosberg won the race in back in 1983. Ending up 3.5s off the pace, Dennis ended with a total of 74 laps, as Red Bull struggled a little for mileage alongside McLaren and Haas.

Hamilton qualified only 14th and finished seventh in the principality previous year.
