Max Verstappen leads Red Bull one-two to win the Spanish Grand Prix ahead of Mercedes’ George Russell after Charles Leclerc’s dramatic retirement… with Lewis Hamilton in fifth in stunning recovery drive after first lap puncture dropped him to 19th

Max Verstappen took the world championship lead after storming to victory in an exciting Spanish Grand Prix that saw Lewis Hamilton produce a fine comeback drive from last to fifth – despite wanting to quit the race!. Carlos Sainz, whom he had passed, breezed past Hamilton on the last lap. LAP 57/66: Red Bull seem to have sewn this race up so what’s happening elsewhere?. LAP 44/66: Verstappen pits, and he doesn’t have a safe looking gap to Russell in third. LAP 33/66: Red Bull’s plan to clear Russell with Verstappen seem to be coming into its own. LAP 24/66: Meanwhile, Hamilton pits and comes out in 19th just ahead of Magnussen. LAP 20/66: Verstappen is all over Russell but this is a clumsy race from the world champion. LAP 15/66: Having said that, Red Bull then report to Verstappen that it did work on the his in-lap with the Dutchman following Russell in and out of the pitlane.
