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. Not to say that we know everything, we don't anything about engineering the auto, but we know how the cars feel, how to drive the cars.
Verstappen's eventual pit stop gave Hamilton back the lead of the race with Vettel roughly 10 seconds adrift.
Hamilton, the reigning world champion, will not complain.
"We're absolutely delighted with the way the weekend has gone here in Barcelona", beamed Shovlin. Mercedes are happy with what they are seeing, and the consensus within the team is that he will be offered a 12-month contract extension if he carries on in this fashion. "The Red Bulls are really fast in the final sector and it's going to be really hard to beat them".
Giovinazzi did not improve on his morning laptime, so ended up 0.068s behind Bottas with his time set on hypersofts and completed more laps than anyone with 148.
Valtteri Bottas appeared a dead man walking after he courted criticism for failing to make Vettel sweat in their battle for the lead back in Bahrain.

However, he has changed his stance and confirmed that despite the team possessing good drivers in Valtteri Bottas - Hamilton's current teammate - and good young drivers in Esteban Ocon and George Russell, they are looking at Ricciardo as a potential candidate.
"I think there's been quite mixed races and the end results haven't been really I feel sometimes quite there, that I feel would have been possible with the pace we have", he added. "We had to stop again and we obviously lost two positions, and also a bit of time during the pit stop itself".
While Grosjean was given a three-place grid penalty for causing the first lap shunt his Haas teammate, Magnussen came home in a lonely, but solid, sixth. Shovlin resumed to say that the Barcelona track suited Mercedes' package and suggested that the conditions "flattered" the W09's performance. Secondly, we struggled with the tyres.
"The best ones are very sensitive and fragile", Wolff said. The decision was based examples of overheating and blistering at the same circuit during pre-season testing, which was partly due to a lack of wear on the new, smooth track surface, which was relaid over the winter.
"However, the continued efforts of everyone in Brackley and Brixworth have played no small part in today's success".
The next round is the Monaco Grand Prix on May 27. Vettel appeared to have a better pace at times but never got close enough to attempt an overtake on the Dutchman. "Of course we can not influence as much compared to a maker of passenger cars". Now it's up to us to turn those ideas into reality.
