F1 Spanish GP: Vettel explains 'common passion' shared with Hamilton

Ferrari driver Sebastian Vettel of Germany steers his car during the Spanish Formula One Grand Prix at the Barcelona Catalunya racetrack in Montmelo Spain Sunday

Third place victor and Red Bull driver Daniel Ricciardo of Australia, left, celebrates on the podium with second place victor and Ferrari driver Sebastian Vettel of Germany at the Spanish Formula One Grand Prix at the Barcelona Catalunya racetrack in Montmelo, Spain, Sunday, May 14, 2017.

Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel finished P2 in Sunday's race, and says the time lost racing Valtteri Bottas played a part in him eventually losing out to victor Lewis Hamilton. While Vettel came out of the pits, he found himself alongside Lewis Hamilton's Mercedes, with both the drivers attacking turn 1 wheel-to-wheel.

"We'll have a tough fight and I love a challenge".

"Guys what can I say?" said Hamilton on his team radio. "It was just very unlucky - it was just a small touch really". "Sebastian was very fast but the team did a great job with the strategy".

Hamilton and Vettel have now claimed two wins each in 2017, with Valtteri Bottas also winning his maiden F1 race in Russian Federation, which sees the Ferrari driver leading by just six points from the Brit in the world drivers' championship standings.

After four races of battling by proxy the two men went wheel to wheel in Spain, with Vettel aggressively defending the lead at one point with a wheel-banging move on the Mercedes driver.

It was not all good news for Mercedes, though, as a crash sparked by Valtteri Bottas resulted in the retirements of Kimi Raikkonen and Max Verstappen after just one corner.

"The start was not good enough, I got a bit of wheelspin".

Ricciardo had a great start, slotting into fourth place behind early leader Sebastien Vettel (Ferrari) and the Mercedes of Hamilton and Bottas. Vettel eventually got by, but by then Hamilton had clawed back a few valuable seconds.

He just rushed near Vettel as he was standing at one place. That was lovely, for our process in the strategy group, at that stage we planned to do the opposite to Sebastian and then the magic call was the one to pit Hamilton at a time when it looked like the VSC would end so because Sebastian couldn't react in that case.

Vettel was the first driver to stop for a slight issue with his front tyre delaying him only fractionally. "He didn't give me much space, it was close". "He was respectful and that stayed the same even at the end".

Moments after Bottas saw his hopes of adding to a maiden win in the previous round go up in smoke, Hamilton closed in on Vettel on his faster tires and never looked back after going by on lap 43.

"I lost almost two kilos during the race".

"I was doing all I could to stay in front, but then he just flew down the straight".

Sergio Perez who is representing Force India finished 4th and ensured that his points table kept ticking for the past 15 races successively. Massa, on the other hand, finished 13th, ahead of Kevin Magnussen, Jolyon Palmer and teammate Lance Stroll.

While Bottas continued, Raikkonen and Verstappen were out. That will also be the Indy 500 weekend where Mr. Alonso will be competing for McLaren-Honda-Andretti.
