The Ferrari driver has held third, meaning the gap between the front two and the rest of the of the field is growing quickly. Valtteri Bottas is still stuck behind in fourth. 14:24 LAP 14/66 In the race for the lead, Verstappen appears to be lapping a little quicker than Hamilton. Both are putting up some very fast lap times. 14:22 LAP 13/66 And now DRS is back in play at Spain. Hamilton is just within DRS distance so Max Verstappen might have to get some defending in soon. 14:20 LAP 12/66 Max Verstappen has held his lead and Lewis Hamilton remains second.  Further back, a wonderful move from Lance Stroll through sector 1 to make it up to tenth past Fernando Alonso. Gasly has a five second penalty for his race start. 14:19 LAP 11/66 And we are back racing as the safety car has ended. Max needs another fast start! 14:17 LAP 10/66 A nightmare pit stop for Antonio Giovanazzi as his pit team mess up the tyres as they found a puncture on one of the fresh tyres. Due to the puncture, they had to swap all four for the Italian which made it a much longer stop. George Russell and Nicolas Latifi have also pitted. 14:15 LAP 9/66 And we have yellow flags after AlphaTauri's Yuki Tsunoda stops dead after his engine failed on him. A safety car is deployed. That will make Bottas and the trailing pack happy. 14:14 LAP 8/66 Weather report: the slight chance of rain has now gone according to Sky Sports and the wind has died down. 14:13 LAP 7/66 Early predictions would suggest we have a two-horse race here. Charles LeClerc in third is driving much slower than the top two, creating a massive gap between them and the rest. Valtteri Bottas is paying for this big time. He is losing over a second a lap behind the Ferrari. 14:11 LAP 6/66 Hamilton is slowly closing the gap to Verstappen in the lead to just over one second. With DRS available, this could be a tasty fight once he closes the gap a little more. 14:10 LAP 5/66 Here is the order further down. LeClerc is defending from third as Bottas looks to reclaim his starting position. Daniel Ricciardo fifth, Sergio Perez sixth, Esteban Ocon seventh, Carlos Sainz eighth, Lando Norris ninth, Fernando Alonso tenth. Pierre Gasly also under investigation for starting out of position. Will be a slam dunk penalty. 14:08 LAP 4/66 Watching replays, it looks like Verstappen's reaction were faster as the lights went out and that gave him the advantage down the opening straight. It was SO close to them making contact, and well played to Hamilton for moving out of the way. 14:06 LAP 3/66 Max Verstappen is flying around Barcelona. He has built up over a two second lead over Hamilton as the drivers now create some sort of formation down the grid. 14:05 LAP 2/66 What a move from the Red Bull! He took Hamilton's stream, then took the inside on Turn 1 and muscled his way past the Mercedes.  Elsewhere, Charles LeClerc sits third ahead of Bottas and Esteban Ocon lost a couple of places to Daniel Ricciardo and Sergio Perez. 14:03 MAX VERSTAPPEN TAKE THE LEAD!!! 14:03 LIGHTS OUT AND AWAY WE GO! 14:00 Formation lap... And the drivers are out on their formation lap ahead of light's out in just a matter of moments. Lewis Hamilton starts from pole but it's a very long straight down to Turn 1, and Verstappen and Bottas will want to catch his stream down the straight. 13:51 Expect 100% from Lewis and Max!
