Updated: 14 May 2017 19:14 IST - Published: 14 May 2017 17:17 IST
...
Mercedes lead the constructor's championship by 8 points, but Sebastian Vettel leads the drivers' championship still by 6! 
...
...
A solid showing from Force India F1 as well, who finish in P4 for Sergio Perez and P5 for Esteban Ocon. 
...
Commendations for Daniel Ricciardo - who scores his first podium of 2017 here in Barcelona! 
...
Hamilton wins, with Vettel in second. A solid solid fight from both right till the last few laps . 
...
LEWIS HAMILTON WINS THE SPANISH GRAND PRIX! 
...
LAST LAP!!! 
...
Haas F1 mixup with Kevin Magnussen gunning for points and he has a right rear puncture! 
...
Felipe Massa comes along right behind teammate Lance Stroll, STR in P14 and MAS in P15
...
Lots of confusion on the track right now. Force India are really giving Williams a run for their money in the championship. Solid points scoring! 
...
Plan C is very likely Vettel pitting again. We've only got 8 laps to go so unlikely anyone's going to do that now, but Vettel's losing time and how. Same as Vettel. Mediums aren't doing too well here in Barcelona! 
...
That is one MASSIVE gap between the top 3. P1 and P2 close enough.. P3 RIC 62 seconds behind race leader Hamilton. Surreal. 
...
...
Vettel is dropping back and Ferrari, curiously, tell him they want to switch to Plan C. What's up there? 
...
EVERYONE is Kimi today! Radio comms keep hearing drivers asking to be left alone.
...
Hamilton's clearly having problems. "It's hard to pull away from him," he says over radio.
...
Hamilton's rears are overheating. May have to pit. Giving Vettel the lead. Heart's got to go out for Pascal Wehrlein though, he's raced brilliantly for P7 today but he'll have a 5s penalty - for failing to stay on the right side of the bollard! 
...
But there's another twist in the tale! Hamilton's taken the lead but "the rear is already overheating," he complains! It's not so easy for Mercedes just yet...
...
"There was no chance" Vettel says, "he was going like a train." 

We'll say. 

The pace is ALWAYS with the soft tires. 
...
THIS IS NOT A DRILL. THIS IS NOT A DRILL. HAMILTON PUSHES AND PUSHES AND TAKES THE LEAAAD! 
...
A moment of lightness in what is a VERY tight, very tense race as Sainz says "leave me alone" on team radio. 

...
...
HOOO BOY. What a fight for P1 between VET and HAM! Vettel is driving very defensively to hold off Hamilton here and it's working...for now, but Hamilton is GAINING. 
...
So we have Mercedes and Ferrari on equal footing again - and by that we mean each team has one driver remaining! 
...
BREAKING: That's the END of the race for Valtteri Bottas! He has smoke pouring out of the back of his car.
