Red Bull threatens Ferrari's status as 2nd best team in F1

Ferrari considering Netflix and esports involvement - Autoblog

It was the 16th time that Hamilton won a Grand Prix after leading every lap of the race.

VALTTERI BOTTAS topped both practice sessions for the Spanish Grand Prix as Mercedes underlined their pace advantage.

"Even after two weeks of winter testing in Barcelona, finding the right set-up for the race weekend remains a challenge", said Perez in the team's preview.

Mercedes have won the first four races of the season with one-two finishes, the first team to do that.

Bottas said: "I lost it there, at the start".

Hamilton made a near-perfect start to draw level with pole-man Bottas and seize the initiative as they began the long run to Turn One. "Car-wise we put everything on the vehicle that we expected and I think it's fair (to say) that we haven't been the quickest".

Williams teammates George Russell, a rookie, and Robert Kubica have finished each of the season's first five races and other drivers have been forced to retire from each of these races, so technically they have finished ahead of other drivers, but as far as actually beating other drivers on the track, it has not yet happened this season. "And when it comes to that, as of today I don't think we have a precise answer".

"So, I truly believe it's the best pairing in terms of that respect, in terms of how we deliver each weekend more than any other team has ever had or now has".

Bill to ban abortions at 8 weeks of pregnancy passes Missouri Legislature
The sharpened national focus on the highly charged debate also coincides with the run-up to the 2020 USA presidential election. The Missouri bill has a similar exemption, allowing abortions only in cases of medical emergencies.

"The results seem to paint a relatively clear picture, but the truth is that they're too flattering".

"It's definitely been a bit of a hard first four races". Hamilton's surge gave him the inside line while Vettel locked up as he attempted to pass Bottas and swerved left to avoid a collision.

The Sky Sports F1 pundits have had their say on Ferrari's continued 2019 troubles after they were beaten by runaway championship leaders Mercedes and Max Verstappen's Red Bull in the Spanish GP.

Verstappen said the fact that he is close to Ferrari in Spain is "positive", but admitted: "Generally I am not satisfied".

Charles Leclerc was 0.301 seconds off the pace, with Ferrari team-mate Sebastian Vettel 0.088secs adrift. While Daniel Ricciardo rounded off the top 10 despite a three three-place grid penalty for his collision with Kvyat in Baku, his teammate Nico Hulkenberg made a shocking exit in Q1 after damaging his vehicle.

The pole was a third in a row for the re-energised Finn, who leads Hamilton by a single point after four of the 21 races, and he did it in a track record time of one minute 15.406 seconds on Saturday.

"Obviously, I'm pleased with how the season has started compared to recent ones". "If it was easy, we would just fix it, but now we are all working very hard and trying still to just understand why we are losing out in these types of corners - sometimes more than other times".
