Mercedes to stay 'humble'

16th May 2018, 14:46 by Neil Foster

Mercedes chief Toto Wolff insists nobody at the team is getting carried away with their one-two at the Spanish Grand Prix on Sunday.

Lewis Hamilton extended his lead at the top of the Drivers' Championship by taking the chequered flag, while Valtteri Bottas claimed second spot in Barcelona.

Hamilton enjoyed a pole-to-flag victory which appeared plain sailing but Wolff has made it clear that was not the case.

"That was a great result but there was no point where it felt as comfortable as it might have looked from the outside," he said. "It feels like a long time since we had a one-two finish, so there’s definitely a measure of relief in how we asserted ourselves."

And, Wolff insists there will be no gloating with so much of the season still to play out.

"We need to stay calm and humble, because it can be a different ball game again next time round," he added. "We will savour the result but our thoughts are already turning to Monaco, to the struggles we had there last year and to how we can make sure not to suffer a repeat."
