In the Formula One, Lewis Hamilton of Mercedes secured victory at the Spanish Grand Prix yesterday after an intense pitstop strategy battle with Red Bull’s Max Verstappen.
This was Hamilton’s third win this season and 98th of his career, and he also matched Michael Schumacher’s record of most Spanish Grand Prix wins with six triumphs each.
Verstappen settled for second place with Hamilton’s team-mate Valtteri Bottas in third.
The Briton leads the drivers’ championship with a 14-point advantage over Verstappen.
Next stop is the traditional Monaco Grand Prix in Monte Carlo on May 23.
