Lewis Hamilton 'close' to new deal with Mercedes

Lewis Hamilton 'close' to new deal with Mercedes

Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton has won the 2018 Spanish Formula One Grand Prix.

Hamilton would have been concerned to see Vettel's Ferrari directly behind him, his title rival having passed Bottas at the start.

At Toro Rosso, F2 driver Sean Gelael will get behind the wheel of an F1 challenger again before Pierre Gasly - who suffered an unfortunate lap-one collision in Sunday's Barcelona race - takes his seat.

But after storming to victory in Sunday's Spanish Grand Prix, Hamilton insisted his passion for the sport is as strong as ever. In Spain, though, he was one with his auto again and his claim to victory never under threat.

"The cool thing about being a world champion is the team naturally listens to what you say because you are not talking gibberish so they go away and focus on those areas, look at the data and try to work on it, it is an fantastic process you do together when it comes back and it works".

We've seen the wings get bigger, smaller, wider, higher, lower and a combination of all of these, but the feeling coming out of the F1 technical camp is that this time the changes proposed have been better researched than anytime before.

"But we know as well that this was a good circuit for us and the temperatures fell in our favour as well".

"For whatever reason it is very hard to undo the DNA of our vehicle, and Monaco, as well as Hungary and Singapore, are tracks where we have under-performed".

The Brit followed up his victory in Azerbaijan last month with a convincing win Barcelona last weekend.

It was the first time this season Mercedes finished 1-2, and also the first it locked the front row in qualifying.

The four-time world champion and Mercedes have been talking about a lucrative new deal since past year, with regular assurances that it is on the point of being signed.

Hamilton started the season with pole position in Melbourne but Ferrari won the first two races. However, the Finn is anxious that Mercedes' apparent resurgence at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya may prove short-lived. The street circuit demands setups that work well on slow corners, traditionally a strength for Ferrari and Red Bull.

"In the next few days there will be meetings and we don't know if the same tyres will be used in France and Britain". Last season they were off the pace in Monaco, with Hamilton failing to make it out of Q2 and finishing seventh after being unable to work enough heat into his tyres.

"The next race in Monaco could be hard for us", Bottas said.

Ferrari and Red Bull are both hot on their heels and the battle between the 3 teams will be fierce.

After the fourth GP of the season Hamilton has 95 points and Vettel 78.
