Max Verstappen, an 18 year old Dutch driver stunned the crowd and the world by winning this race driving a Red Bull ahead of a field of world class drivers. Verstappen is now the youngest driver to ever win a Formula 1 race and the first Dutch driver to win! Verstappen was followed by Raikkonen, Vettel and Ricardo.

Podium Spanish GP     champaigne

Lewis Hamilton in the Silver Arrows Mercedes starting on pole with his teammate, Nico Rosberg starting in second, took each other out on the short straight leading into turn four on the very first lap. The crowd went nuts as did the Mercedes team. Fortunately both drivers walked away from their mangled cars; however, the mood at Mercedes and vibe between the drivers could be cut with the proverbial knife.

Things are finally getting interesting, especially as the Red Bulls are getting up to speed and will be getting newly revised and more powerful Renault engines by the Canadian Grand Prix. I am looking forward to Monaco on May 29, 2016.
