2013 Spanish Grand Prix
Ten of the best pictures which tell the story of the Spain Grand Prix weekend.
Felipe Massa, Jenson Button, Friday practice
Last year Ferrari came to the Spanish Grand Prix looking for a leap forward with their underperforming car and found it.
McLaren arrived at this year’s race needing the same. But after a rain-affected first day of practice there was little indication of any improvement.
Sebastian Vettel, Friday practice
Sebastian Vettel drives past the GP2 field on his way into the pits.
Romain Grosjean, Saturday
After finishing on the podium in the previous race Romain Grosjean’s hopes for another top-three finish were dashed when he suffered a suspension failure early in the Spanish Grand Prix.
Leiws Hamilton, Spanish Grand Prix
Lewis Hamilton should have started from pole position in Spain last year. But he was sent to the back of the grid after running out of fuel in qualifying and only managed to recover to eighth.
He did have a front row start this year, lining up behind team mate Nico Rosberg, but finished out of the points after struggling with his tyres.
Start, Spanish Grand Prix
Rosberg clung to his lead as Vettel past Hamilton – who locked his brakes – at the first corner.
Force India, Spanish Grand Prix
For the second time in four races a Force India pit stop went wrong for Adrian Sutil. A cross-threaded wheel nut meant he had to switch his engine off, and by the time he returned to the track he’d fallen well down the order.
Felipe Massa and Kimi Raikkonen, Spanish Grand Prix
Felipe Massa was unable to keep Kimi Raikonen’s Lotus behind meaning Ferrari missed out on a one-two finish.
Esteban Gutierrez, Spanish Grand Prix
Despite collecting a penalty during qualifying Esteban Gutierrez enjoyed his best race weekend of the year, narrowly missing out on a points finish.
Charles Pic, Spanish Grand Prix
Charles Pic used the revised Caterham to finish ahead of both Marussias and was right on the tail of Valtteri Bottas as the race ended.
Fernando Alonso, Spanish Grand Prix
Fernando Alonso celebrates his third win on home ground which restores some of the points he lost in Malaysia and Bahrain.
