Massa notches Barcelona win

Ferrari's Felipe Massa secured a second consecutive win when he won the Spanish Grand Prix from pole ahead of McLaren's duo of Lewis Hamilton and Fernando Alonso. His team-mate Kimi Raikkonen was running third when he retired after just 10 laps due to electrical problems.

By finishing on the podium for the fourth time in as many races Hamilton became the first driver to finish on the podium on four consecutive times in his year in F1. Also the McLaren driver now leads the driver's championship by two points and at 22 he becomes the youngest driver to do so.

I think the Massa secured his win when he fought off Alonso on the first corner because from then on he went on take command of the race and only losing the lead on pit-stops.

No other team apart from Ferrari and McLaren has finished on the podium so far this season but I still think BMW Sauber are the ones who could break that podium monopoly. BMW Sauber's Robert Kubica finished fourth and his team-mate Nick Heidfeld could not finish the race.

It was good to see a Williams finish in the points with Nico Rosberg finishing sixth behind Mark Webber's team-mate David Coultard. Once again Webber failed to finish and this time it was a hydraulics problem and I am afraid the pattern of 2006 seems to be developing again.

Renault's Heikki Kovalainen and Super Aguri's Takuma Sato completed the points places. It doesn't look like its going to be a good season for Giancarlo Fisichella after he finished just outside the points in ninth place after some fuel rig problems.

Next stop Monaco.

Just to congratulate Hamilton who has been a revelation...and I agree he is a total package, humble and a racer...Massa will continue to benefit from the Schumacher effect

I think Hamilton is a good driver but I also think its early days to judge whether he is as good as most commentators say. Talk of him winning the driver's championship etc is all rubbish. Lets see if he is still leading after 8 races.
