Grand Prix of Spain F1 2017: Results of the race

Hamilton con el Mercedes F1 W08

Interesting race of the GP of Spain of F1 2017, where, despite the difficulty of overtaking on this circuit, what is certain is that we have seen a lot of overtaking with the new rules. Mercedes and some teams were against these new regulations because they said that would complicate the overtaking to bring back the importance of aerodynamics, but nothing could be further from the reality. I guess they were simply trying to make “policy” for their comfortable situation with the domain they had. But not all has been excitement, also, there have been tense moments and others sad for some fans.

A moment of the race has been the touch who have had Räikkönen and Verstappen after the output, which has resulted in both having to leave the home. That has produced a tender image in which a child of the stairs, dressed in the garb of Ferrari to cry inconsolable by to see your team fail, but what is certain is that Kimi has had a gesture noble, and in the box of the team from Maranello has received and has given an unforgettable moment for this child. Which has had better luck, it has been Vettel who has been second after having had the race in hand ahead on the exit to Hamilton, but has not been able to take advantage of it to win here.

Vettel en el GP de España

there Has been more touches, as Vandoorne with Massa who has finished with the abandonment of Stoffel and not by mechanical causes, but for having broken the direction. And what is certain is that the brazilian has got rid of a good today, as it has been involved in enough incidents of the race. The first and most serious has been in the has thrown off the track, Alonso, making it lose its 7th position gained yesterday to be out of the Top10. Then the pace of the car has been irlo leaving behind to finish out of the points, although it has been able to overtake a few cars, among them to Stroll and Massa. A penalty for McLaren-Honda, but at least he has finished the race, and it is entirely likely that you have not had the crash with Massa, the companion of Alonso also had come to an end.

therefore, a good step from Honda it has improved a little reliability, and some improvements have been introduced in the intake system and combustion in the engine. But without a doubt, the great update is still not expected until the Canadian GP, although the statements of the members of Honda, maybe we can even delay a little bit. What is important is that the evolution is good enough to convince McLaren and also Alonso to follow. Carlos Sainz Jr. it has also not had a race comfortably, with tension between him and the Haas that has wept blood to move forward and we’ve seen moments like in the pit stop of madrid, where it looked pretty hopeless and getting to go outside to the grass to be able to overtake without success.

The next quote already know that it is in the Monaco GP, interesting appointment in which we will not see Fernando Alonso as you already know, will be replaced by a Button already that Alonso will be racing in Indianapolis. Will we see a new fight between Ferrari and Mercedes or will be able to Red Bull to say something on the circuit of monaco? What is certain is that Vettel has had two runs in tray to win and have wasted, your leadership has been reduced and what is true is that looking at the performance of Mercedes and the Ferrari, and the capacity of evolution of both… I think that Maranello could have played the world and is complicating. And Vettel would expect sanctions, because of some units of the motor unit is in the fourth, the next will have a penalty. And start from as soon as to receive sanctions is not good.
