What a masterclass of driving and a brilliant strategy we saw from Mercedes in Spanish GP. Sir Lewis Hamilton executed the strategy to perfection to score a win and take a lead of 14 points in championship. We saw moment of brilliance in the opening lap by Max Verstappen, as he overtook the reigning champion Lewis Hamilton. It was a brave move by Verstappen but Lewis wisely left enough space to get Max pass on turn 1 as any resistance could have ended in collision. And what happened after that was repeat of Hungary 2019, as Mercedes caught Red Bull napping by pitting Lewis again and he came out on the mediums flying and Verstappen was like sitting duck, couldn’t do much about it. Lewis Hamilton riding on strategic brilliance and masterclass of driving brought home yet another win of this F1 2021 Season. Now round 5 will take place at famous Monaco Street Circuit between May 20-23. Sportsfeista will bring you complete information of Formula 1 Monaco GP 2021 Live Stream, Schedule & Live Telecast Information
