Double podium for Team on strong afternoon in Barcelona
Lewis Hamilton finished second and George Russell third in the 2023 Spanish Grand Prix.
Starting P4 and P12 respectively on the Soft tyre, both drivers made progress in the early stages. George vaulting to P7 on the opening circuit, with Lewis moving up to P3 within the first 10 laps.
After running a longer first stint, Lewis and George both switched to the Medium compound and used their strong race pace to move up to P2 and P3 just after the halfway point of the Grand Prix.
A final stop for another Soft tyre saw Lewis running in a comfortable second, with George managing the gap to Sergio Perez as he occupied P3. Both drivers saw out the final laps to claim the Team’s first double podium finish since Brazil last year.
With a significant points haul, the Team has now moved into second place in the Constructors’ Championship.
