Lewis Hamilton pleased after 'interesting' F1 Test at Barcelona

Mercedes showed dominance throughout the entire weekend of the Spanish Grand Prix, the fifth race of the 2018 Formula 1 season, by placing Lewis Hamilton in first place in every timed session for the weekend.

Mercedes looked strong all weekend, happier on the amended Pirelli tyres introduced for this weekend due to worries about excessive wear and tyre temperatures.

Hamilton won from pole, unchallenged by the rest of the grid. "Both Valtteri and Lewis have been on top form and the vehicle has been reliable and very fast".

The four-time world champion said: "We are not far from finalising things. Today was a great reward for everyone's effort".

After three races in which driver and the team have struggled to unlock performance from tyres and auto, Mercedes finally had the platform required at the Circuit de Catalunya. However, a slight error at the stop ensured that Bottas rejoined behind the scrapping Vettel and Kevin Magnussen.

Hamilton and Mercedes have both frequently emphasised that neither party is looking elsewhere for 2019, though earlier suggestions that the situation would be wrapped up pre-season failed to materialise. "Positive I think in quite a few ways but there's still some things with the old one which are always positive, so it's trying to combine them and get both on one auto which would make it even faster basically". "We had to stop again and we obviously lost two positions, and also a bit of time during the pit stop itself".

And with Mercedes money men in Barcelona to witness his dominant display, Hamilton dropped the biggest hint yet that he is ready to commit his future to the German team. Shovlin resumed to say that the Barcelona track suited Mercedes' package and suggested that the conditions "flattered" the W09's performance. "Now it's up to us to turn those ideas into reality".

"But when we saw the tyres were holding up better than expected, we changed our strategy".

"However, the continued efforts of everyone in Brackley and Brixworth have played no small part in today's success".

The pink-striped tyre is the softest in Pirelli's range and will make its race debut at the Monaco Grand Prix next week.

Hamilton joined Mercedes from McLaren on a three-year deal in 2013 and renewed his contract for the same period of time mid-2015, meaning he is out of contract at the end of 2018. For the sake of the World Championship battle and fans around the world who want to see the fight go down to the final round in Abu Dhabi, I hope that's the case.

"It was going to be tough being behind Sebastian all the time".
