Verstappen capitalises on Leclerc’s engine failure at Spanish GP as Lewis Hamilton recovers after nightmare start

LEWIS HAMILTON and George Russell produced two stunning drives to show Mercedes’ revival is back on track. The two Brits had very different races in the Spanish GP, as Russell finished third and Hamilton came home in fifth place in an incident-packed race. Hamilton picked up a puncture and limped back to the pits in LAST place. By stark contrast, while Hamilton struggled, Russell was delivering an excellent drive in the top three places. Leclerc’s retirement promoted Russell to first place but eventually he was leapfrogged by Perez. While Red Bull orchestrated their pecking order of their two cars ahead of Russell, Hamilton was making lightwork of fighting from the back.
