Hamilton claims Spanish GP victory in yet another Mercedes one-two

Barcelona - Lewis Hamilton beat pole-sitter Valtteri Bottas at the start to top yet another Mercedes one-two finish at the Spanish Formula One Grand Prix on Sunday.

Title holder Hamilton reclaimed the championship lead from his team-mate with a third season victory and 76th of his career.
Rampant Mercedes have finished first and second in each of the first five season races. Rivals Ferrari with Sebastian Vettel and Charles Leclerc didn't make the podium in fourth and fifth despite an engine upgrade as Red Bull's Max Verstappen beat them for third.
A late safety car phase added a little drama but Hamilton was never troubled en route to his third straight and fourth overall Barcelona top spot. The only other real excitement came at the start where Hamilton got past Bottas on the inside while Vettel in vain tried his luck on the outside from third on the grid.
