MADRID, May 14 (Xinhua) -- Lewis Hamilton of Mercedes won the Spanish Grand Prix on Sunday following a titanic battle against Sebastian Vettel of Ferrari who finished in second place.

Hamilton was able to make good use of the pole position he assured in Saturday's qualification in the Montmelo race circuit just outside of Barcelona.

Daniel Ricciardo finished in third place after Hamilton's teammate Valtteri Bottas retired with an engine problem, while Force India's Sergio Perez was fourth, a lap behind the three leaders.

Vettel got off to a magnificent start and went into the lead, but Hamilton was in close pursuit and in the end the power of his Mercedes was enough to see him to victory, although a tyre chance which allowed him to get a better grip on the Montmelo circuit was also a factor in a win which moves him to within 6 points of Vettel in the drivers' championship.
