Mercedes and Lewis Hamilton were back on the top step of the podium in the Spanish Grand Prix at the weekend after losing out for the first time in this strange, but somehow normal 2020 F1 season. A valiant effort from the Max Verstappen led (and Albon ignored) RedBull looked like they could push the 6 time world champion, but in the end another pretty much flawless drive from Lewis gave the most dominant team on the grid their 5th win out of 6 races.
