Approved and failed the Spanish Grand Prix: Hamilton, Sainz, Alonso …

Lewis Hamilton has been the most outstanding the approved ones of the Grand Prix of Spain while Max Verstappen and Fernando Alonso the most famous failures. Carlos Sainz and Ferrari leave this event with a good taste. Also Daniel Ricciardo who has managed to beat his teammate, Lando Norris. Alpine and Aston Martin, meanwhile, must improve in the face of Monaco. Lewis Hamilton: Approved The great winner of the Spanish Grand Prix has been Lewis Hamilton. The Mercedes driver achieved the hundredth pole in his career on Saturday and his 98th victory in Formula 1 on Sunday. To do so, he had to overtake a Max Verstappen that had passed him at the start. Hamilton opted for a two-stop strategy and was able to cut the Dutchman over a second per lap to clinch his third win of the season.Max Verstappen: SuspenseOf all the drivers who have opted for a one-stop strategy, Max Verstappen has been one of the worst offenders. Had he entered to change tires, the Dutch driver would have been ahead of Lewis Hamilton after the lap in which he entered for the second time. Red Bull kept its strategy and, without tires, Verstappen could do nothing to prevent Hamilton from overtaking him. By having a free stop, Max Verstappen went back in and made up what happened by achieving the fastest lap in the Spanish Grand Prix.Fernando Alonso: SuspenseAnother of the great victims of betting on a one-stop strategy has been Fernando Alonso. The Asturian has not hesitated to describe this strategy as “suicidal” at the end of the Spanish Grand Prix. “We opted for a slightly suicidal strategy and we failed.We decided to make just one stop, but it was impossible and we had to go in if we wanted to finish the race ”, said the Asturian after finishing the race seventeenth only ahead of the Haas of Mick Schumacher and Nikita Mazepin. Carlos Sainz: Approved been the cross in the Spanish Grand Prix, Carlos Sainz has been the face. The Madrilenian has gone from less to more in the race and has finished seventh, just one second behind sixth, which was Daniel Ricciardo. Even so, Carlos Sainz has acknowledged that he is leaving Barcelona “frustrated”. Not because of how the race has developed but because it could have been higher than having classified better. “I ended up a bit frustrated with the race because I had a lot more pace and those positions at the start penalized me a lot. I take it that we were the best car in the corner after Mercedes and Red Bull. What has failed us is being in eighth place instead of being in fourth or fifth place. Overtaking here was very difficult, ”he pointed out. Ferrari: ApprovedThe Italian team has taken a new step forward in Barcelona. Although Ferrari started the World Championship behind McLaren, now they seem to be a little better. So much so that those from Maranello are already only five points behind the British team in the fight for third place in the Constructors’ World Championship, which is Ferrari’s big goal this season. In addition to Carlos Sainz with his seventh place, Leclerc contributed by finishing fourth in the Spanish Grand Prix. Alpine: Suspense Esteban Ocon started the Spanish Grand Prix from fifth position, which made the French team dream of the podium. However, as has happened with Fernando Alonso, Esteban Ocon has suffered when trying to go to a stop.Alpine did not diversify risks by opting for the same strategy with its two drivers and seeing how McLaren and Ferrari go in the fight for third place in the Constructors’ World Cup.Daniel Ricciardo: Approved Although Carlos Sainz and Fernando Alonso continue to be behind their teammates As a team member, Daniel Ricciardo managed to finish the Spanish Grand Prix ahead of Lando Norris. After having only had a day and a half of preseason to get used to his new car and his new work team, the drivers who have changed teams are beginning to be a threat to their teammates.Aston Martin: SuspenseFernando Alonso, who started the Grand Prix of Spain tenth, did not trust Lance Stroll, who did eleventh. The German has overtaken the two-time champion in the race but Sebastian Vettel has been unable even though Aston Martin seemed to be doing somewhat better than Alpine in Barcelona. They have finally been eleventh and thirteenth, both outside the points zone. Aston Martin is left with 5 points in the Constructors’ World Championship and the situation in the team is increasingly worrying.
