But it was a win his team identified as crucial to his self-belief and confidence for his title defence.

But instead of challenging Hamilton, Bottas - who was only four-tenths shy of Hamilton following a great qualifying run on Saturday - was passed up the inside by Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel at Turn One.

He finished the race 20 seconds clear of team-mate Valtteri Bottas while Max Verstappen in the Red Bull was a further six seconds down.

But despite his growing confidence and an increased "synergy" with the vehicle, Hamilton was careful not to overstate the significance of his second successive win. "That's a different ballgame again and a track where we've struggled in the past, so let's see". "The best ones are sensitive and fragile", he said. Mercedes have not been able to get the most from their auto since the opening round in Melbourne and have been repeatedly out-paced by Ferrari. "So having such a good weekend it was good for his confidence".

"There's always a big part of me, if we're one-two, and if I'm second and Lewis wins, big part of me is really happy for us as a team - because that means we are strong as a team and we are getting the results we want".

"The mistake this morning was a costly one and I missed the final hour of the session because of it", Ricciardo said.

Hamilton echoed the optimism coming from Wolff.

He said, "Today I felt a synergy with the vehicle that I hadn't been feeling all year".

"I was trying to go for every sector record", he laughed.

"That's more like it guys, great job", said Hamilton on team radio.

"Overall we were a little bit quicker [than Verstappen] but as the laps went on, we just didn't have enough pace", he added. I think that showed in my face. His pole position, taken after a close battle with teammate Valtteri Bottas and Vettel, was greeted with relief.

Lewis Hamilton plans to look back at his emphatic victory in Spain as the turning point that fired him to a fifth Formula One world championship.

As on Friday, the champions were quickly in the groove and demonstrated more competitive speed than in practice at recent Grands Prix.

Ferrari rival Sebastian Vettel ran strongly early on to split the two Mercedes off the start.

Vettel's total stationary time was 5.6 seconds, dropping him to fourth behind both Bottas and Red Bull Racing's Max Verstappen.

Mercedes held firm to their one-stop plan. Following a safety vehicle appearance, Hamilton got the whole shot on the restart and rabbited away. "Ferrari did the opposite".

A fine third place finish for the Dutchman after a tough few weeks in which he hitHamilton, divebombed Vettel, collided with Daniel Ricciardo and clipped the rear end of Lance Stroll's Williams. He has won more thrilling races in the past and will do so in the future.
