Lewis Hamilton of Mercedes on Sunday won the Spanish Grand Prix following a titanic battle with Sebastian Vettel of Ferrari who finished in second place. Lewis' win was the 55th of his career, his second at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, and second of the 2017 season. The result moves Hamilton to within six points of Vettel in the Drivers' Championship with the Briton on 98 points to the German's 104. Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport meanwhile lead the Constructors' Championship by eight points from Ferrari, 161 points to 153.

This race was one of the best of what is already turning out to be quite a year for Formula One. A perfect getaway from second on the grid saw Sebastian Vettel move ahead of Lewis Hamilton and into the lead. Things did not go so well for his Ferrari teammate Kimi Raikkonen: at the first corner, he was tapped from behind by Valtteri Bottas and that pushed him into Verstappen which meant the Iceman had to pull over to the side of the track with a broken front left suspension.
