Spanish Grand Prix review for Motor Verso - Crash and Burn

It started with a crash - that long anticipated but somehow not quite comprehensible in reality prang of the imperious Mercedes taking each other out. Then it ended with the astonishing young talent Max Verstappen burning the rest.

The oft-cited hypothetical of what would races be like without the Mercs was therefore played out in the Spanish Grand Prix. And it played out as Red Bull vs. Ferrari, and by the looks of things Daniel Ricciardo vs. Sebastian Vettel. Being Barcelona the battle was strategic rather than wheel-to-wheel.

But it took another twist for Max to triumph, as the fall back strategies given the the 'second' Red Bull and Ferrari just in case turned out to be the best one, Max's astonishing assurance did the rest as he held off a challenge from Kimi Raikkonen for several laps to still be out front by the end. It truly was a day for the other guy.

I give my take on it all in my latest Motor Verso race review. You can read it here:

Do check out the Motor Verso site too; you'll find motoring news, car reviews and features - the team on the site carry out week-long test drives of the latest cars - as well as photos and videos of the machines.
