Hamilton takes the victory at the 2017 Spanish Grand Prix

Lewis Hamilton relishing 'rawest fight' he can remember after Spain GP win

Ferrari driver Sebastian Vettel of Germany steers his auto during the Spanish Formula One Grand Prix at the Barcelona Catalunya racetrack in Montmelo, Spain, Sunday, May 14, 2017.

It is also Hamilton's 55th career victory. With both men now behind Hamilton's teammate Valtteri Bottas, Mercedes left the Finn out on track as Vettel was unable to get past when he caught up.

"That's why we race", Hamilton said.

Given how tight this year's title fight is between him and Lewis Hamilton, however, we should all be on the lookout for more daring moves like this one.

"This was the rawest fight I have felt in a long time".

"It's been a long, long, long time so I used up a lot of energy and I'm looking forward to lying down after this. I loved it. I would not change it for the world".

After a mid-race safety vehicle eroded Buemi's early lead, di Grassi charged onto the Swiss driver's tail in the closing laps, eventually finishing just 0.320sec adrift.

The British driver suffered some wheel spin at the start, which helped Vettel to take the lead as they entered turn 1 of the first lap.

Had it not been for a midrace Virtual Safety Car, Ricciardo may well have been at risk of being lapped by the front-running duo. It was a very close battle and if it had gone in a different direction, it would have been different between us.

"I didn't say anything bad [to him]".

"I was trying to do everything I could and I knew I didn't have the pace at that point", he said. Hamilton said: "Not really. He was respectful and that stayed the same even at the end". Off-track I don't see why you can't have a good time. Otherwise, Verstappen has shown evidence of being the best driver outside the top four drivers for Mercedes and Ferrari.

After winning the race, Hamilton said, "The team did an incredible job today".

"We tried to stay in the race but well done to him, he drove a good race and we did everything we could". "I've nothing to moan about".

Kimi Raikkonen and Max Verstappen had been involved in a duel into the first corner and, with the extra speed, came across Bottas. Both Raikkonen and Verstappen received damages to their suspensions, forcing them to retire from the race.

"I gave you [Vettel] space otherwise we would have touched".

"Kimi couldn't control the vehicle and slammed into me". The stewards noted the incident, but took no action. Meanwhile, Bottas was forced to retire due to vehicle trouble.

He then had to pressure Vettel hard for the next seven laps before getting close enough to try for a pass at the start of lap 44, sweeping past Vettel around the outside into Turn One.

"There was nowhere to go". Hamilton thus managed to overtake Vettel under DRS, thus getting into the race leading position.
