The Formula 1 circus returned to its European heartland last weekend, as the Circuit de Barcelona played host to the Spanish Grand Prix.

While his win at the previous race was a product of good fortune, Lewis Hamilton was back to his brilliant best in Spain. He led home a Mercedes one-two, commanding a 20 second lead over team-mate Valtteri Bottas at the chequered flag.

Max Verstappen secured his first podium of the season finishing in third place, despite having to cope with considerable front wing damage in the closing stages.

Sebastian Vettel’s race was blunted by tyre wear and an extra pitstop versus his direct opposition en route to fourth.

A lap one incident eliminated three cars at the long right-hander of Turn 3. Romain Grosjean spun on the outside before his car swung into the path of the oncoming field, leaving Nico Hulkenberg and Pierre Gasly on a collision course with his Haas.

With plenty of storylines emerging from an intriguing and race, here are our driver ratings for the 2018 Spanish Grand Prix.
