Lewis Hamilton wins Spanish Grand Prix despite losing lead to rival Max Verstappen at first corner after smart pit stop

LEWIS HAMILTON sealed a stunning fifth straight win in Spain as he overtook Max Verstappen with just SIX laps remaining for victory. The victory sees Hamilton extend his lead over the Red Bull star to 14 points – with the Dutchman claiming the fastest lap bonus. Hailing his team’s strategy, Hamilton told his team over the radio: “Great job with that strategy. “I was so close [behind Verstappen] for so long but just managed to keep the tyres in somehow. 22 seconds was a long way to come back but it was a good gamble – a really great strategy from the team. I did what the team asked because there is a great trust between us.
