Hamilton secures third pole of season in Spain

15 May 2017

ESPN rounds up the main talking points from a thrilling and dramatic Spanish Grand Prix which saw Lewis Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel go wheel to wheel for the race win.

Pole-sitter Hamilton lost the lead to Vettel at the start only to regain the lead from the Ferrari driver in the final stages of a compelling race to seal his second victory of the year. I've been coming here a long time and done so many laps but still the last chicane is the tricky one for me. To make this step forward and bring a great package for this weekend to keep us in the fight with the Ferrari, I'm so grateful to them. I don't know if the guys back at the factory get exhausted of hearing this, but they've done an incredible job. "I just really have to congratulate and thank my team".

German Vettel was second fastest behind his Ferrari team-mate Kimi Raikkonen as the Italian team bounced back to top the times in the session ahead of Mercedes.

Double world champion Fernando Alonso, whose McLaren broke down in first practice and was slowest overall on Friday, enjoyed a miraculous transformation - and delighted his home crowd - by qualifying an astonishing seventh.

Macron vows to heal a divided France
Macron also said that, on his first official foreign visit as French president, he planned to travel to neighboring Germany. At the ceremony, Macron walked up the red carpet to the palace steps and exchanged a ceremonial handshake with Hollande.

Finns Valtteri Bottas, in the second Mercedes, who also had an engine change on Saturday morning, and Kimi Raikkonen, in the second Ferrari, were third and fourth fastest. "Yesterday, I wasn't feeling the rhythm". He still managed to put up a decent time in qualifying and is now hoping for a ideal start as he looks to maintain his lead in the drivers' championship points standing.

Vettel was one of the first cars out after Ferrari completed a precautionary engine change on the vehicle in the interval since FP3.

Vettel eventually made it past Bottas with a bold move into the first corner.

"It would have been nice to get them pole but hopefully we can do well tomorrow".

Last year, District of Columbia resident Deshauna Barber became the first-ever military member to win Miss USA. Trump sued both networks, eventually settling and selling the pageant to talent management company WME/IMG.

Two of the Force India drivers finished in the top ten with Sergio Perez at eighth while another Esteban Ocon ended at tenth, less than a second behind Felippe Massa. "I have been racing for 24, 25 years and it feels like the first win". "I really enjoyed it out there so I hope we can squeeze more performance out of the package".

Nico Hulkenberg (Renault), Carlos Sainz (Toro Rosso), Pascal Wehrlein (Sauber), Daniil Kvyat (Toro Rosso) and Romain Grosjean (Haas) rounded out the points.

"In the heat of the moment it's hard to know from the outside, I felt like I ran out of road but was alongside".

But Stoffel Vandoorne should take it for his clumsy collision with Felipe Massa, turning into the Williams driver at Turn 1 and triggering the all-important Virtual Safety Car period.
