2015 Spanish GP Post-Race Stats

Lewis Hamilton didn’t win the Spanish GP! Nico Rosberg took pole position and sailed off into the distance to win the race.

As I mentioned in my pre-race stats, pole in Spain is very important and Rosberg proved just that by winning from pole. The top four all started and finished in the same position, Rosberg won, Hamilton second, Vettel third and Bottas fourth. The fastest lap of the race went to Hamilton, his third of the season. Hamilton took his 75th podium in F1, Vettel took his 70th and Rosberg was the ninth man in nine races to win at Catalunya.

The bad luck for Pastor Maldonado continued, an early knock with teammate Romain Grosjean damaged his rear wing endplate and he later retired from the race. Fernando Alonso also retired from the race with brake problems, coming very close to flattening the front jack man, something that Grosjean pretty much did.

Grosjean was the only driver that started outside of the top ten at the Spanish GP to finish in a points scoring position and Max Verstappen the only driver to start inside the top ten and finish outside.


Not yet got around to changing the colours to the car colours, but I will do it at some point. Not too many changes in positions, Bottas and Williams switched positions, as did Grosjean and Nasr. Carlos Sainz managed to gain two positions, while Nico Hulkenberg lost two with Verstappen staying between both.


The gap between second and third is a lot larger now but still only 11 points between Rosberg and Vettel. The top three are a clear way ahead of the rest of the field, but when the podium has been Hamilton, Rosberg and Vettel in four of the five races so far that isn’t much of a surprise.
