Hamilton wins Spanish Grand Prix from pole position

Lewis Hamilton won the Spanish Grand Prix from pole position on Sunday to cut Sebastian Vettel’s overall lead in the Formula One championship to six points with a quarter of the season completed.

Hamilton took the chequered flag 3.4 seconds clear of the German, who did all he could to beat him. Daniel Ricciardo finished 75.8 seconds behind the winner.

Ricciardo was the only driver not lapped by the top two in a race where both Mercedes’ Valtteri Bottas and Ferrari’s Kimi Raikkonen failed to finish, retiring after a blown engine and first lap collision respectively.
