Verstappen grabs comfortable win in Spanish GP

Max Verstappen effortlessly clinched his 40th victory in Formula 1 at the Spanish Grand Prix, solidifying his path towards a third consecutive world title.

This triumph was made even more significant as his primary competitors, Checo Perez and Fernando Alonso, failed to maintain their previous momentum in terms of points and podium finishes over the course of the first six races.

Both Perez and Alonso missed out on the podium, with the former making a decent recovery to secure fourth place, while Alonso finished seventh in a race that lacked pace until the final set of demanding laps. Moreover, Alonso's Aston Martin was consistently overtaken by Mercedes, to put it mildly.

The debut of the new Mercedes B was nothing short of a miracle. In fact, they outperformed Ferrari, Aston Martin, and Alpine by a considerable margin.

As the saying goes, Mercedes is back and is causing quite a stir among their competitors. Aston Martin is in urgent need of improvement without any further delay.

Even Carlos Sainz, who was the leading Ferrari driver just a month ago, struggled to fend off the Mercedes onslaught. However, he managed to secure crucial 10 points for Maranello, finishing behind the two Red Bulls and the two Mercedes newcomers.

Verstappen secured both the first-place position and earning the additional point for the fastest lap of the day. This triumph allowed him to significantly widen the gap between himself and second-placed Perez.

The current point difference between the two Red Bull Racing teammates now stands at 53 points, equivalent to more than two race wins.

Alonso, despite a comparatively weaker performance over the weekend in Spain, maintains his hold on third place. However, Hamilton has made notable progress, closing the gap to Alonso to a mere 12 points after recording 18 points in Barcelona
