    The F-1 boyz take the battle between Ferrari and the Mercs to Spain this week. Bottas surprised everyone last week in Russia by beating both Vettel and Hamilton. Maybe we will see another first-time winner this race as well.

    Hamilton takes the win followed by Vettel. Bottas and Raikkonen had DNFs. Ricciardo took third followed by Perez for fourth. Hamilton takes the fight to Vettel and onward they go to Monaco in two weeks.

    The post race meet up between Kimi and the young fan who was crying when he was knocked out of the race was pretty cool.
