Hamilton wins a relatively ho-hum 2018 Spanish Grand Prix

Lewis Hamilton: Barcelona F1 win a 'rejuvenating experience'

Now, to talk about the Spanish GP weekend itself, Mercedes looked to be on great form.

But team-mate Valtteri Bottas and Ferrari rival Sebastian Vettel were sufficiently close to Hamilton's track-record lap of 1:16.173 to give the Briton some cause for concern. Shovlin paid tribute to the work behind the scenes in what has been a testing start to 2018 for the reigning world champions. "But I have the will to want to get this one and do it right, ideal weekend in, weekend out".

Lewis Hamilton and Mercedes are not done just yet. We've not had an easy start to this season but everyone has stayed focused and worked incredibly hard to take the fight to Ferrari and Red Bull.

"At no point did I feel like I was going to lose but I was pushing every single lap - using it as a test bed to understand what I liked about the balance and understand where I can get more from".

On the up side, the Mercedes was particularly strong in pre-season testing in Barcelona and, as we've seen so far, the Ferrari has been right up there in Bahrain, Shanghai and Baku, so maybe this level of dominance is a one-off. The decision to pit the Finn two laps after Vettel was down to the difficulty in getting the medium compound up to optimal working temperatures. Bottas could not overtake Vettel to regain second position. Despite projecting a two-stop race, Bottas and Hamilton both managed to extend the life of their mediums to the end.

"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". We lost a bit of time at the stop and that was enough to put us back out behind Vettel and also Magnussen. Hamilton set blindingly fast sector times throughout the race regardless of tyre-type, and it is going to be dashed hard for Vettel to claw back this advantage.

Taliban attacks Farah city in west Afghanistan, kills dozens
Several security forces members, including provincial deputy police chief Abdul Razaq were injured during the fighting. Officials said security forces had received reinforcements and were fighting back the rebels.

And with Mercedes money men in Barcelona to witness his dominant display, Hamilton dropped the biggest hint yet that he is ready to commit his future to the German team.

Monaco will stage the next Grand Prix, and it is a race that always seems to throw up incident and excitement, and Hamilton himself knows the trials and tribulations that come with racing on the Monte Carlo roads.

"Valtteri has very good cards in his hands", Wolff added.

"However, the continued efforts of everyone in Brackley and Brixworth have played no small part in today's success".

In contrast to his emotions in the aftermath of the Azerbaijan Grand Prix, Hamilton explained that he "didn't leave anything on the table" during the 66-lap race in Spain.
