Ten of the best pictures which tell the story of the Spanish Grand Prix weekend.
McLaren’s revised livery for the Spanish Grand Prix was darker in colour but lighter in weight – a small contribution to the substantial increase in performance the team is seeking with its Honda power unit.
Fernando Alonso’s fans turned out in force as usual – but their man was the first to retire on Sunday.
Lotus produced a Mad Max-style Formula One car to promote the new film…
…and the real thing looked like something from the film set after Romain Grosjean’s engine cover shattered during practice.
It was a trying weekend for Force India, who had only the Manors behind them after qualifying.
Kimi Raikkonen tested Ferrari’s new aerodynamic upgrade – distinguished by the curved sidepods and narrower air intake – but didn’t run it in the race so the team could compare the old configuration with the new parts which Sebastian Vettel continued to use on the other car.
The Toro Rosso crew celebrated the team’s best qualifying performance for seven years after Carlos Sainz Jnr and Max Verstappen locked out the third row of the grid.
While Nico Rosberg motored off into a lead he never looked like losing, team mate Lewis Hamilton slipped back to third and out of contention for victory.
Red Bull were out-qualified by the two Toro Rossos but Daniel Ricciardo beat them home, thanks in part to this pass on Sainz.
Rosberg won as he pleased, taking his first victory of 2015, and drawing within range of Hamilton in the points standings.
