Mercedes did an incredible job – Hamilton

Triple-time F1 world champion, Lewis Hamilton has moved to within six points of Sebastian Vettel following beating his title rival in a massive struggle at the Spanish Grand Prix.

Pole-sitter Hamilton lost the lead to Vettel at the start, only to regain it from the Ferrari driver in the final stages of a compelling race to seal his second victory of the year.

“Guys what can I say?” said Hamilton on his team radio. “A fantastic job this weekend – thank you. The strategy was right on it.”

“The team did an incredible job. That’s how racing should be, Vettel was incredibly close and incredibly fast. I don’t know what went wrong at the start. I thought I did everything I was supposed to do but got wheel spin.” The Brit added

On bump with Vettel at Turn One: “I felt like I ran out of road but was alongside. It’s how racing should be and I wouldn’t change it.”

Hamilton on the physical demands of the race: “It was a hard race. My neck is fine, but physically I lost nearly 2 kilos just in that race.

“It’s draining, cars fast, he (Vettel) drove fantastically well and it’s a real privilege to race against such an awesome driver.”

“I don’t remember having a race like this for a long time where I was able to be on the limit as hard as I was and stay in a battle.

“It’s been a long, long, long time so I used up a lot of energy and I’m looking forward to lying down after this. I’ve been racing for 24, 25 years and it feels like the first win.” He added
