Lewis Hamilton 'close' to new deal with Mercedes

Mercedes' British driver Lewis Hamilton celebrates with his team after winning the Spanish Formula One Grand Prix at the Circuit de Catalunya in Montmelo in the outskirts of Barcelona

Vettel replied: "I think you should ask us what we need to overtake".

The French outfit's programme focused on an array of test items and evaluations aimed at improving performance. One of the big challenges, of course, is that nowadays the circuit's bigger earner is the MotoGP weekend and, therefore, whatever is done to the layout has to work for the bikes as well.

Those components should have lasted until the end of the Monaco race and then been replaced for the seventh round in Canada, where Ferrari plans to introduce its upgraded engine.

Despite promising much in Friday running Red Bull never threatened in the race.

Grosjean has been handed a three-place grid penalty at the next race in Monaco for his actions on the first lap. Our temperature was up and down, clouds were in the air, but once I got going and got a good start it was great. We had other priorities in the last few weeks.

The German team also attracted special attention as it tried out new rear-wing mounted rain lights on behalf of the FIA.

In Spain, as in Australia, the stars aligned for them.

"I remember like it was yesterday sitting at home playing this computer game as Michael", Hamilton said. "But it's as much as I am overwhelmed with the victory today, my mind is already in Monaco and I remember Sunday night was not as pleasant a year ago". "It is very balanced between him and Lewis at the moment", the Austrian explained.

"In F2 you're able to control the auto more when you're oversteering and from what everyone's seen in F1, the high downforce and the new surface, it's quite trick when it starts to go and it's hard to get back".

Sunday in Barcelona he followed race victor Hamilton in the team's first one-two finish of the campaign, albeit 22 seconds adrift on very worn tyres after a massive 47 lap stint on a single set. "We've got Valtteri in the auto tomorrow and another very busy day planned".

On the Pirelli vehicle, Lando Norris ran a low-fuel programme in the morning, while Oliver Turvey ran with a higher fuel set-up in the afternoon. The time of 1m18.039s was quicker than both McLaren drivers managed on the same compound during qualifying last weekend, and just 0.3s off Fernando Alonso's Q3 time on the supersofts. "They come first. If we were to look at others, Daniel is definitely among them".

"You are taking a new concept of front wing with only two years to go until a whole new vehicle".

"I don't think that the slight modification in the tread thickness changed the balance of the performance of different cars". "Obviously you don't get the chance to revisit these kind of decisions that are made but we did it today and the result is that if we used the normal tyres on Sunday, it would have probably been worse, so it was the correct call". I am very happy, I can not hide that I am very happy!
