Lewis Hamilton stormed to victory in the 2018 Spanish Grand Prix, leading from start to finish and subsequently stretching his lead at the top of the drivers championship to 17 points. It was the first time this season Mercedes showed the type of dominance many fans had grown used to seeing from the Silver Arrows.

Lewis Hamilton and Mercedes are not done just yet.

BARCELONA, Spain (AP) - Mercedes got the commanding victory it had been seeking all season.

Asked about contract talks, Hamilton said: 'We've had all the bosses here and there is not a single person in the team, or at least the hierarchy of the team, that has any concerns as far as I am aware. In Spain, though, he was one with his vehicle again and his claim to victory never under threat. "Red Bull are going to be rapid and very hard to beat", he said.

"We've definitely got ourselves on to the right path". But you know what, most of the time, the Spanish GP is.

It bought grocer Whole Foods past year for $13.7billion, which gave it 470 stores, and has opened more than a dozen bookstores. After that, Amazon's system uses cameras and other sensors to track shoppers and identify what they take off shelves.

"For whatever reason it is very hard to undo the DNA of our vehicle, and Monaco, as well as Hungary and Singapore, are tracks where we have under-performed at".

His existing contract expires at the end of this season but he is expected to extend his deal for at least one more year with the reigning four-time world champions. He took the pole position for the race and paced the entire field, including his teammate Valtteri Bottas, who finished more 20 seconds to the rear of him. The teams for the change, including Ferrari and Mercedes, feel that the research that's been done by the new technical team at F1 headed by Ross Brawn justifies the modifications. The street circuit demands setups that work well on slow corners, traditionally a strength for Ferrari and Red Bull. Ferrari called Vettel into the pits for on lap 18 causing Mercedes to bring in Bottas on the next lap.

"It was feeling good until the end, when I looked up at the tower and my name did not go to the top".

"My job is not to worry so much but preparing by extracting as much as I can from my engineers; to make sure the debrief is good, to reconnect with them later in the week once they have downloaded everything, and see that we have followed through with all the things that I have asked them to do".

Hamilton is now standing at the top spot in the drivers' championship, maintaining a lead of just four points over Vettel.

Ferrari and Red Bull are both hot on their heels and the battle between the 3 teams will be fierce.
