Here are the complete results from the 2023 Spanish Grand Prix, including updated championship standings after the seventh round of the championship.
Max Verstappen has won a straightforward Spanish Grand Prix, with the Red Bull driver converting his pole position into an effortless win at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya.
The Dutch driver had to weather an attack from Ferrari’s Carlos Sainz into Turn 1, with Verstappen coming out ahead in the tussle.
While Verstappen romped away unchallenged in the lead, Mercedes were able to bring the fight to Aston Martin and Ferrari as both Lewis Hamilton and George Russell underlined the pace of their newly upgraded W14s.
Hamilton finished in second place to Verstappen, having overtaken second-placed Carlos Sainz on track on Lap 28 as Mercedes clearly enjoyed superior race pace over Ferrari. George Russell finished in third place, having made strong early progress up from his 12th-place grid slot, and including a similar overtake on Sainz into Turn 1.
Sergio Perez, who started from 11th on the grid, fell just short of catching Russell for the final podium place, having pitted late on for fresh soft tyres having faced increasing pressure from the Mercedes driver behind.
With Sainz coming home in fifth, it was a nondescript race for Aston Martin after scoring podiums in almost every race of the season so far. Lance Stroll came home in sixth, just ahead of Fernando Alonso, having been ahead of the Spaniard throughout. Alonso caught up on Stroll at the end, but made it clear on team radio he had no intention of attacking his teammate for the higher position.
The points positions were rounded out by Alpine’s Esteban Ocon, Alfa Romeo’s Zhou Guanyu, and Alpine’s Pierre Gasly.
