Sebastian Vettel defends Ferrari's two pitstop strategy in Spanish Grand Prix

LewisHamiltonCropped

"I couldn't have done it without this incredible team", Hamilton told the official F1 website.

When racing resumed Vettel after six laps with the safety vehicle was first of the leading group to pit but the Mercedes pair stayed out on what turned out to be a one-stop strategy, with Hamilton immediately smashing the lap record.

Hamilton now leads in the championship by 17 points over Vettel, with the team 27 points over its Italian rivals in the constructors' championship. Two weekends ago in Azerbaijan, the four-time champion was also fourth and in China before that eighth.

Reigning World champion, Lewis Hamilton, stormed to a handsome victory in yesterday's Spanish Grand Prix, leading from pole to dominate at the Circuit de Catalunya. The street circuit demands setups that work well on slow corners, traditionally a strength for Ferrari and Red Bull. But it's unclear what impact the upgrades have had on the competitive order, beyond Ferrari seeming to fall behind Mercedes in qualifying pace and also fall behind Merc and Red Bull on race pace.

"This is when we are going to start trying to continue to apply the pressure". Ferrari 126, 3. Red Bull 80.

There's no doubt that the new shallower Pirelli tyre construction hurt Ferrari more than most. The team will likely have to change it for the next race, but no penalties were expected in Spain. Mercedes, meanwhile, were the most obvious beneficiaries.

SEBASTIAN VETTEL claimed Ferrari had no choice but to make a second pit stop, a move which ultimately cost him a place on the podium in Barcelona.

He could do nothing to fight his way back past Max Verstappen, who despite banging into the back of Lance Stroll's Williams, took the final spot on the podium.

ISC & ISCE Results 2018 Declared;7 Students Topped Class 12th With 99.5% Marks
In the class 12th examination, the pass percentage of girls was 97.73 per cent while that of the boys stood at 95.39 per cent. The Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE) declared the results for Class 10 and 12 on May 14, 2018.

Hamilton, however, remained untroubled in the clean air out front and had 16 seconds on Bottas and 26 on Verstappen in third by lap 50. Fortunately, the end result was just a piece of front wing flying off into the gravel trap.

Daniel Ricciardo, meanwhile, had an anonymous race. A small mistake after the lap 1 safety vehicle compromised the early phase of the grand prix, but even with an offset strategy Red Bull couldn't unlock the true potential of the auto to challenge Mercedes, which is a disappointment considering Ricciardo recorded the fastest lap of the grand prix - proving that the RB14 does have intrinsic race pace.

The 33-year-old Briton performed a swallow dive on to his team members before describing his race. His 1:18.441 was more than three seconds faster than the previous record - a 1:21.670 - set by Kimi Raikkonen in 2008. They changed but they changed for everyone.

His Haas spun back across the track in a cloud of black smoke ahead of the oncoming cars -- leaving Pierre Gasly and Nico Hulkenberg with nowhere to go as they plunged into the spinning Haas machine. Although overtaking moves were a rarity on Sunday, Alonso's stood out as particularly courageous and skillful. Rookie sensation Charles LeClerc earned his second points finish of the season in 10th place, behind Sergio Perez's Force India.
